New projector came, got some good and bad news.
1. The convergence is Much better, and movies look quite a bit sharper.
2. The colored spots are gone. (still saw some spots on the white paper but nothing shows up on the screen)
Now a couple bad things
1. The left side of the screen turns a slight reddish color. (really only noticeable on a white or very bright screen)
2. After a couple minutes on a certain test pattern, the image became slightly burned into the screen. I saw it on the home menu on my Blu-ray player. It started fading immediately but to be sure I put on the pixel flipper on the Disney WOW disc for a couple minutes and it went away completely. I don't know why it was so easy to burn in like that, but I suppose it will be fine as long as I mainly just watch movies.
I'd rather not send this one back too. I wanna keep it, but someone reassure me. Is this thing gonna hold up? What are the chances of it getting worse?
