Question about Optoma RD50 Television
I have an Optoma RD-50, rear projection DLP set. I recently started seeing black shadows creeping onto the image from both sides of the screen. The shadow on the left side is narrower than the one on the right... also, the left-side shadow is angled at about 5 degrees whereas the one on the right is straight up-and-down. Is this a "mechanical" problem like a mirror or projector being out of alignment, or is it a more serious "electrical" problem with one of the components? If the former (hopefully), is there some adjustment I can do myself to avoid the $400 charge for a service call I was quoted by the Optoma tech I spoke to? Thanks for any advice you can provide.
This is a common experience to many Optoma owner's who thought they were buying quality eauipment - RD50/a and RD65/h. It has to do with mirrors within the light tunnel coming loose. They used inferior glue at production. I tried to repair them myself and failed and ended up installing an entire light tunnel ($$$) myself, but most should just buy another TV and sue Optoma for putting out an inferior product.

I beleive its electrical problem (horizontal circuit). if u are not inclined with this job just bring it there and besides they will give you warranty for their work.
