    As the title suggests, I've got an annoying visual issue with my BenQ W1070.

    As you can see from the picture, the image is square with the radiator and the two walls but see at the top where it's slanted? It shouldn't look like that right?

    It's not a serious issue I suppose but it's a bit annoying!

    Is there anything I can do to rectify it?

    Assuming the lens & optics are OK, it looks like the front of the projector isn't completely parallel with the wall. Even a tiny error can affect the geometry.

    As Gary says, the pj is not central to the screen and not parallel to the wall - it looks like it is a little too much to the left and has been swivelled to the right, so the right hand side of the image is larger than the left (it's table mounted so the slope is up and to the right). If you swivel it left it will square up, and then you just slide it to the right to get it central to the wall.

    Using the setup grid (if it has one) with a tape measure can be very helpful to getting your head around what adjustments achieve what.
