    Just a quick question really guys - might sound a bit stupid but is there such thing as convergance problems on DLP machines?
    Only it seems like my red is out when looking at the start up screen on my pioneer 575. Seems to bleed out over the letters.
    Dont know if it could be something else but thats the first thing i thought if.
    Any help would be greatly recieved.
    Thanks Guys!
    Ross

    A single chip DLP cannot suffer any convergence or alignment issues. What you have is something else. What signal/connection type are you using?

    almost sounds like a burned polarizer or a firmware problem, if it is permanent i'd guess most likely polarizer, if variable, may be firmware

    would you say your pj gets very hot and does it have adequate ventilation, and do you regularly clean the filters ? - it is best to do this at least every 100 hours, and if you do, and the filters always look clean when you take them out, then you know you're doing a good job for the pj

    *oh wait, i'm not even sure a dlp has polarizers ! ;)
