So we're building up the theater and I just installed the LG AF115 1080p projector. It's a LCoS projector and was rated fairly high. I got it pretty cheap ($620) refurb off 1saleaday.com.
Anyways I cannot seem to get the thing focused on our Elite Screens 120" fixed frame screen. At the clearest it's focused it's still blurry and you cannot make out the pixels at all - they're blurred with a blue tinge of chromatic aberration. It's as if the coating on the lenses is murky, a lens is out of focus in the group, or who knows what.
I've cleaned the lens with micro fiber lens cloths, adjusted the focus numerous times with the test pattern, and reset the video to defaults. I'm not sure what to do at this point.
I've already emailed 1saleaday and am awaiting a response - but I seriously am disappointed. I know at 120" it's not going to be as "Clear" as an LCD tv, but it should be clear enough to see the pixels. I've had a few DLP projectors before and all were crystal clear, even if they were only 480 or 720p. I Was hoping for more.
To top it off, the chassis is missing screws, the air filter was not correctly aligned, and the vertical shift knob has a chunk broken off... not off to a good start. Just got the screen mounted, as well as the shelf for the projector. I was really hoping for better quality.
