Hi, Eighteen months ago, I spent months on these pages, researching the Sony HS10 and eventually buying one. I was also one of the few who didnt get the lamp problem that seemed to plague everybody. Tonight I guess is payback time. I turned the projector on and found the weird pattern you can see in the attached picture. I know its not a dust blob (Ive had those and got rid of them). This is in focus, and all those right angles make me suspect that this is something more terminal. I suspect its something at the level of the pixels and perhaps some kind of failure in one of the LCD panels? Am I right? Can anybody give me an idea? Also, since my projector is 18 months old, how are Sony for repairs? Thanks in advance (and thanks retrospectively for all the past advice---this projector has been the best thing Ive ever bought). David.
