I have a Da-Lite Cosmopolitan Tensioned screen. A while back the screen jammed while the motor was closing and this caused the screen to be stretched, leaving a dull surface in part of the screen. I have tried to wash the screen with soap and water but seems the spot is still there. I also called up Da-Lite and they told me that I need to order the roller and the screen from them (~ $1300). I had this screen purchased for $1500, is there a place that I can order the material only? What are my options? The screen is a Cinema Vision 1.1 gain. Thank you in advance.

did you adjust the valves and are you sure after you put belt on and have it tensioned that you ran the motor around by hand at least 2 full revolutions?
if you do this and then find the marks are off...you either got it wrong to begin with, or the timing belt is stretched...hope you didnt try to reuse the timing belt...anytime ya take one off you should change it
Assuming your screen a motorised type and is able to move down and up when you press the remote, it means that the motor is working well. 2 possible reason are:-
1), The limiter mechanism to stop the movement for the up and down position is faulty or misalign. Up limiter in this case require check and realignment.
2), The end of the screen ( the bottom ) while closing ( move up ) stopped too late, over shot and it fell down on the other side causing that extra length hanging. Up limiter in this case require check and realignment.
Pls contact your local Dalite support if you are unable to find a repair man.
