    i got back from being away at uni for 3 1/2 months and plugged my projector (a panny AE300) in over the weekend only to noticed the image was slightly fuzzy. at first i put this down to using a cheap and nasty dvd player (i left my 1/2 decent one at my uni flat) but i was having a look tonight and noticed that even the on screen menus are blurred slightly, so the cause isnt the source.

    now, its not a massive amount of bluring, but its enough to be annoying.

    is there any reason why after a few months of not being used, the image quality could degrad?

    is there something stupid im overlooking?

    the pj is only maybe 8 months old, and has only about 120hrs on the lamp so it shouldnt really be on its way out :(

    yes, and ive took the lens cap off :)

    ive moved the pj forward, and then resized the image, which i think makes it a little better, but its not in its original position (and my coffee table is now too far infront of me to rest my feet on :laugh: )

    does the image drop after a certain lenght of time (like, is there a run in period for the bulbs?)

    it could be the power cablesi guess? i had to dig out an old extension cable as mine is being used for the xmas tree :rolleyes: but it was nothing special

    cabling is a complete mess right enough, having moved out in a hurry when i left, and coming back, using an old amp and different dvd players, all the cables just kinda got balled up and thrown into the corner. ill sort that out tomorrow and see what difference it makes.
