Convergence error on viewsonic projector PJ820

Is there anyway to fix a convergence error on a Viewsonic projector PJ820. There is a dual image because at least one of the three color images is not meeting the other two. This gives it an out of focus appearance with a reddish tint on the edges of images. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I checked their online store and it says the service manual is out of stock for the PJ820. Do you know of any alternatives?

Problem with a Viewsonic pj800 LCD projector. The image looks like it's not aligned properly. Like it's a double image and the color is all distorted. I imagine there is something wrong with the...

The image is made up of three polarisers, one tends to fail causing a problem with the image. On average it may cost £300 per polariser to be fixed. As you know these days you can get a projector for that price as everyone now wants HD and 3D. I recently bought 7x NEC NP115 for just over £200 each. Very good spec, auto power up (Which was important for what I needed)

hope that helps

I want to send a wireless signal from my laptop to two viewsonic pro8400 projectors at the same time. I think I need a wpd-100 wireless adapter for each projector. Is that right? What do I need to send...

you cannot display an image over a wireless network to your projector. All you will be able to do is control the projector through wireless. The image signal has to come from a cable input such as hdmi or vga, composite or component. This particular projector though HAS to be hard wired to allow wireless devices to control it anyway. So you idea of sending a wireless signal to view images from your laptop will NOT work.

HI There, I have just bought a viewsonic pj559d from ebay. Refurbished working with no lamp. I bought a 'JP-UK Genuine Alternative Viewsonic RLC-036-JP Projector Lamp for PJ559D Projector ' and...

A 'genuine ALTERNATIVE', is not a genuine Viewsonic part, but that is unlikely to be the problem. Two choices, take it for professional repair, or send it back to the seller as not working as advertised.

My project image is flipped horizontally on the screen, but displays normally on my laptop. How do I fix my projector image?

The projector may have a menu function for flipping the image dependent on whether it is merely set on a desk, or mounted upside down on the ceiling. See the manual, printed or online.

Dvd player to projector

Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
Find a link below , which gives a review of the Viewsonic PJ 501.

Hope this clarfies.

Viewsonic PJ513DB DLP Projector projects upside down

Double check which menu item you are expecting to find the orientation. It might even be under 'image', 'settings', or its own button not in the menu, Jon.
