along with the $10 B&W, I got an LCD projector at a surplus auction. It was a little more than the epson projectors were going for at the last auction ( @$5 a piece), but I still got a decent deal, being that it works.
But there is a problem, and I know even less about LCD projector technology than I do about B&Ws.
It works great, but there is this green line through the image just left of the center of the image.
I can't tell by looking at the unit, but the auction said it was a BoxLight Revolution 3000. I think BoxLight is still around, but they haven't responded to my requests for information. I can't even tell during what years this projector was manufactured (it is out of production) to help determine its age. I can find no information on this unit
The green line is strange in that it is very straight and sharp, and the video images move through it, that is, you can see image in the green line, which has some thickness. There is also a strange horizontal green bar of varying intensity accross the bottom of the projection, but it is under its display so it doesn't bother me as much.
I know someone who is an excellent TV repair man, but he is also very much into taking things apart he knows nothing about. Before I even tell him about this, I was hoping those more knowledgable about the technology could tell me if it is likely that a tv repair man could even repair something like this... as it seems to be a digital malfunction (though it is a consistant malfunction... it is always there, always in the same place... almost like someone put a thin piece of translucent green tape on the lens...)
