    Have a pulldown 70 inch da-lite jobby with a small ripple either side at the bottom, opnly really noticeable when footy is on, I was thinking about ironing it out. Is this a possibility/solution or will I just bugger the screen up? If I pull gently on either side of the screen then the ripples go so I may end up making a small brace to do this.

    Any sugggestions welcome

    i would not know about ironing, but have you considered steaming first? maybe you should try this first? i have never tried it, but a lot of irons have the option and it used to take out ripples. but as i have never treid it i cant confidently recommend it
