My quartet projection screen will not go back up. I think someone pulled it down too far.
The problem is most likely a damaged spring end cap. As you face the screen from the front, this is the cap that covers the right end of the cylinder that encloses the screen material. The cap is held in place by 3 Phillips head screws. If you remove the spring end cap, you will see a slot in it that is designed to hold the spring assembly stationary as you pull down on the screen. If this slot is damaged, then the internal spring inside the roller will lose tension. The fix is to pull out the screen & roller assembly, roll it back up manually, then replace the spring end cap with a new one. (I believe the part # from Quartet Apollo is K0329). The cap at the other end has a cup receiver designed to accept the pin end that is on the left side of the cylinder that houses the screen material. The tricky part is fitting the pin end back into the pin end end cap. It is easier with 2 people. If you fashion a short hook out of a coat hanger. you can use it to lift the pin end into the pin end cap. There are part #'s and exploded diagrams on the Pegasus part sales website: http://shopping.netsuite.com/s.nl?c=440001. The site is down now for maintenence, but it should be back up soon. HTH
