Question Epson tw-5300 Slanting Image


Established Member
Hi another one who picked the tw5300 at a great price as a step into projectors.

Not sure if it's a problem but I put the projector on a table facing the wall just to get used to it, turned it on and the image is slanting from left to right. The table is flat and it's pointing straight on towards the wall.

I can use the keystone to adjust it but was wondering is the projector faulty or that is the norm and one just use the keystone adjustment?

It sounds like the projector isn't pointing square on at the wall. Try rotating it left or right around it's vertical axis. If I'm right, turning it toward the side of the image that is currently shorter should fix things.

Actually it was a keystone setting wasn't at 0. I know I feel a bit stupid but first projector and I have heard of it before but for some reason although looks brand new and unopened the setting was not at 0
So I kept turning the projector slowly left and right at first to no effect lol a Mr.Bean moment.

Thanks guys for the replies.
