RGB on Barco Reality Sim 6 diverge at edges...

Hi, I bought a Barco Reality Sim 6 on eBay for relatively cheap ($300) but am having some issues with it despite having found the manual in PDF form and having fiddled with the options I could find under the INSTALLATION and SERVICE MENUS. The biggest issue is that though I can achieve sharp focus in the center of the screen, the RGB signals seem to diverge towards the edges of the image. From far away, this makes the image seem blurry but within one foot of the screen it becomes evident that, say, a white line is actually being projected as red, green, and blue lines slightly misaligned vertically and horizontally. Now, I have been using the built-in test patterns to check the image and have not actually connected a signal....would this make any difference? Also, the manual lists one option under SERVICE that seems like it may fix my problem (electronic convergence) but it doesn't show up on my machine.

Any ideas would be appreciated as this could be one very nice projector if only it can be adjusted properly...

Should be possible to adjust the convergence having a projector this quality! Call Barco in Belgium and ask them!

Can you replace the Bulb only instead of buying the whole unit, if so where do i get one from? many thanks

I don't believe that you can purchase this lamp as a bare bulb through official channels. It is an expensive lamp + projector and buying cheap copies is likely to be a risky business, definitely not supported by Barco. Prices seem to start at around £3500 GBP (ex VAT) or $5500 USD (ex TAX)

If you are in the UK, here are the 1st two suppliers I found

If you are in the US, again here are the 1st two.

Given the fact that it is such an expensive lamp you should be able to negotiate a competitive price. I'd get on the phone to any potential supplier and ask them for their very best price rather than buying off the net.

clean out the projector with canned air to remove any dust. lines can be caused from excessive heat from too much dust. fans could be wearing out, causing voltage spikes and drops. also could be that the main board has an issue and needs replacement.

Hi there

The best advice I can give you is to take this unit to Authorised Repairer.

It sounds like a Ballast problem ( lamp's powersupply )
