My epson projector center is blurry

Hello, if it's mounted you may have never adjusted the "focus" on it before. Just slowly turn the end grey colored lens one way or the other with a stationary picture such as the menu on the screen, adjust it to where the lettering is the sharpest.....tks

Picture is unclear color are off

there are a few things you might be able to do. First I would try the auto focus or alignment feature of the set. there should be a option in menu to realign the lamps.

Red screen.

The IC's are bad. The parts themselves aren't expensive but the labor is. If you're at all handy with a soldering iron and willing to try, you will find a link below to a website with step by step instructions with pictures to help guide you. Otherwise, the repair costs $250-400 . Best of luck.

Blurry picture

You need to clean the projector lens on the optical engine using a soft cotton or, better yet, a chamois cloth. Also clean the mirror mounted inside the rear cabinet and also the front and rear of the screen itself.
If picture is still blurred then your the optical engine is most probably defective.

Blurry and bent screen

It sounds like you have moved the mirror, turn it on and try to see if you can realign it. KEPP YOUR FACE OUT OF THE LIGHT PATH.
