    I purchased the screen just before chrstmas and I have just got round to installing it.

    I have noticed on both sides the screen is curling and it goes as far as the viewing area.

    There are also some slight ripples in the middle.

    I have left the screen down overnight and they are still there.

    can this be caused by the screen not being perfectly level to the ceiling?

    My old Beamax R was perfectly flat.

    If getting the screen level doesn't sort out the problem, let me know and we'll replace your current screen with a new one.

    Thanks,

    How can I level the screen? I though it would hang level anyway? Like a plumb rule

    Thanks, would it be a straight swap out?

    Casing is now perfectly level and the edges still curl into the viewing area.
    I have also notices a fault with the material. A two inch white patch. It is a different colour from the rest of the screen.

    Otto doesn't spend as much time on the Forum as some of us. :blush:

    Suggest you contact him direct.

    I agree with this, send Otto an email and he`ll respond

    the forum isn`t really the place to conduct business

    I hope you get it sorted soon.

    I tried to buy one of Beamax's exdemo screens and they were a complete pain. Luckily I eventually got a refund and glad to be free from them so I can buy a screen from elsewhere.

    Luckily you have Roy Jowett on your side so they should be doing the chasing?
