Does anyone know how I can fix this picture so that it lines up?

It's too big of a picture on the left side of the screen and too narrow on the right side. I have a peerless adjustable mount so I should be able to get everything lined up but some whatever reason its not fitting the screen properly. I have it at max zoom right now. (can't change it)

thanks!

Assuming that your projector is square with the screen an perpendicular, it sounds like you need to use the keystone adjustment. Not sure why you can't change the maximum zoom unless you mean that's due to the projector placement.

Yes its square (with the lens being at the pretty much at the top of the screen). I can't change the maximum zoom as it is due to the projector placement, as I should have gave myself some wiggle room when mounting but it's too late now as I would have to move the outlets that are in the ceiling.

Doesn't changing the keystone affect picture quality?

So I have tried the keystone correction and it doesn't improve the situation. The best scenario is to have it at zero as any other direct, negative or positive shrinks the image too much on the screen and makes the problem worse.

Any other ideas? Maybe the lens is too high and the whole project needs to be brought down from the ceiling?

I am out of town currently and don't have access to my manual. Don't remember if this projector needs to be mounted below the top of the screen or not as some do. Also lens-shift may have some effect on it too. Also you might try taking it off of Max Zoom just a little bit to see if that has any effect on the problem.

It looks like your projector isn't pointing completely straight at the screen. It looks like it's pointing a bit more to the left wall than the right wall. I just replicated your same picture by turning my projector just a tiny bit towards my left wall. Also you have a bit of a bow at the top which usually means it's pointed up a tiny bit too. Looks like it's not 100% plumb left/right and up/down.

Thank you, I will give this a try. I did put a level on the projector and its level from end to end and slightly off from side to side. Maybe when I installed the mount I didn't have it square. I will try putting a level on the front side of the project and see if that helps.

Thanks for your time.

It may not be that it's not level. As we have both said in the previous posts, the projector's lens needs to be perpendicular to the screen to avoid distortion of the picture.

What is the best way to check for that? Put a level on the outside lens frame in both directions?

I mounted my projector so that the center of the projector was the same distance from the wall as the horizontal center of the screen was from the same wall.

Hello All

The 2nd Bulb I got a awhile back from the projector people...a Sony OEM...has started showing signs of flickering. Not all the time but here and there. I kept my first bulb as a back-up, popped that in, dropped to low setting and haven't seen it. That Bulb however has I know 4800+ hours on it so it's a matter of time I need another.

I was wanting to know about other bulbs/lamps....like ones I see with "Genuine Philips UHP Bulbs" and others I see from various outfits. On Amazon I see reviews ranging looks good, brighter, didn't last long, a bit dimmer....of course the catch is they're like half the cost which sort of goes with the saying, "if the price is too good to be true, then probably is"...but they say it's a Philips and surely they cannot be all that crappy. has anyone tried these and what 's their overall opinion or has heard other owners with other projectors?

I got a Projector Lamp Experts lamp and have about 3,000 hours on it with no problems. They have a1 year warranty. So far, so good.

Hey

is this the generic one you mention you put in back in March to replace the OEM? I've seen a couple of places including this Projector Lamp site that shows using a Genuine Phillips Bulb. The so-called OEM from Sony is like $250 which I have the bulb I got with the Sony Box and right on the back it shows Phillips. So these are the same Phillips Bulb/Lamp?

Yes. It's their Platinum lamp. I don't know how to tell if it's the same Phillips bulb as the Sony bulb is.

I'm using a Sony UBPX800, and a Panasonic UB900. Both work fine with my HW40ES.

I've used the UB900 and UB200 with my 40ES and both work great. Panasonic 4K players work very well with the 40ES.

My HW40ES still looks so good to me (going on 5 years old), I don't know if I want to spend the big bucks for a true 4K machine. When I do, I want the upgrade to to be a noticeable difference. Looking at a new JVC NX5 or NX7, but still holding off.
I'm using a Darbee and eeColor 3D LUT box video processor with my 40ES and it looks wonderful.

Same here my 40ES looks great. I use a DVDO iScan Mini with mine and the picture and detail is just incredible.

Just wondering if Sony will update this line or will they continue to only produce 4k projectors. The 45 has been out a few years now.

Man I wish I knew. I've been waiting for a while now or a new Sony to come out. The price for their 4K projectors is steep and faux 4K or real 4K from other companies have a lot more fan noise versus a 40 or 45ES from Sony and I love how quiet the 40ES is .
