    Hi All,

    I've just gotten myself a new Panasonic AE300. This is my first projector and I have to say I’m very impressed. Considering the size of the image the picture is excellent, even with quite a bit of ambient light in the room.

    Anyway, enough biging up my new PJ, I'm posting because I have problem with it! After a few hours use I noticed a blue patch at the bottom of the screen on bright scenes - See pictures.

    Does anyone know what this is and if I’ve got to send the unit back or can I calibrate it out somehow

    Ta,
    ObOb.

    Hi Obob,

    I'm afraid that doesn't look normal to me :(

    What are you projecting onto?

    Try going into the options menu and change the ceiling/floor setting if the patch doesn't flip with the image you can rule out any problem with the source.

    In my brief but busy PJ eperience, I think that looks like the blue panel (RGB ????) is slightly out in comparison to the other panels.

    cant be sure though:confused:

    Thanks both of you. It’s being projected onto a Draper screen. I’ve tried flipping the image and changing the input device but the blue area remains (although it is difficult to see on non white scenes).

    Unless anyone’s got any ideas I guess its going back tommorow : (

    It doesn't look like a panel misalignment - if it was, you'd see a blue outline under the lettering in the first screen shot.

    It looks pretty terminal tho - I'd take it back
