No you can adjust it through the service menu, but I wouldnt suggest that unless you have the service manual as often you could mess the set up worsee without the service info. Let me know if you would like a link to get the service info.

SC 329: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment Error
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The LD unit home position sensor does not detect an on condition while changing the LD unit position for correcting the LD position or changing the DPI.


Instructions from the Service Manual below...

.

5.4.3 LASER BEAM PITCH ADJUSTMENT
There are two laser beam pitch adjustment procedures: one for 400 dpi, and one
for 600 dpi. These adjustments use the following SP modes.
· SP2-109-1: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment - 400 dpi
· SP2-109-2: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment - 600 dpi
· SP2-109-3: Laser Beam Pitch Initial Setting - 400 dpi
· SP2-109-4: Laser Beam Pitch Initial Setting - 600 dpi
· SP2-902-2, no.12: IPU Test Pattern - Cross Stitch - 400 dpi
· SP2-902-2, no.13: IPU Test Pattern - Cross Stitch - 600 dpi

1. Perform SP2-109-8 (Beam Pitch Data Reset).

2. Input the value for 400 dpi that is printed on the LD unit into SP2-109-1.
Use the value printed after "P" on the new LD unit as shown below.
NOTE: Do not use values printed after a "V".

(These value numbers are on a sticker inside the machine with a UPC code on it. The numbers are just under the UPC barcode. And example number looks like this: "15980300151P: 120, 172", so the example 400 dpi value here is "120".)

3. Press the "Enter" key.

4. Perform SP2-109-3.

5. Print the 400-dpi test pattern onto A3 (11"x17") paper using SP2-902-2 no.12
(cross stitch). (See Service Tables - Test Pattern Printing - Section 4.2.3, pasted below.)

6. Write the value of SP2-109-1 on the test pattern which was input at step 2.

7. Change the value of SP2-109-1 and print another test pattern, repeating steps
2 to 5. Print about 5 patterns with different values for SP2-109-1 (e.g. "48", "96",
"192", "240").

8. Check this test pattern. If the laser beam pitch is not correct, the image looks
like a black vertical stripe pattern.
NOTE: If the laser beam pitch is correct, the vertical stripe is not so noticeable.
If the value is not correct, the vertical stripe pattern is darker.

9. Adjust the laser beam pitch position until the thin lines are of uniform thickness
(no striping effect should appear on the printout), doing steps 2, 3, and 4. (In
step 2, input a value which is estimated to be correct, then do steps 3 and 4,
then if necessary go back to step 2 and try another value.)

10. After adjusting the laser beam pitch for 400 dpi, adjust the laser beam pitch for
600 dpi, using the same procedure as for 400 dpi (use the SP modes for 600
dpi).

.

4.2.3 TEST PATTERN PRINTING (SP2-902)
NOTE: Do not operate the machine until the test pattern is printed out completely.
Otherwise, an SC may occur.

1. Access the SP mode which contains the test pattern you need.

2. Press exit, then touch the "Copy Mode" key on the operation panel to access
the copy mode display.

3. Select the paper size.

4. Press the "Start" key to print the test pattern.

5. After checking the test pattern, exit copy mode by touching the "SP Mode" key.
Reset the test pattern to 0.

6. Exit the SP mode.

These adjusments listed in the manual require removal of a service panel and mechanical adjustment of the laser mounts, so it should be done by a qualified technician.

However, these test procedures can indicate whether or not this is the problem with your printer.

How to set convergence on Projection TV ' s


I have given an general explanation on most projection TV ' s

  1. Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  2. Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  3. Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  4. Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  5. Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  6. Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  7. Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  8. Repeat these steps for all colors.

hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.

  • good luck!

    I have a Canon Pixma MP270 and I can only print in colour both the black and colour lights are lit up on the printer


    f print quality does not improve by the standard cleaning of the Print Head, clean the Print Head deeply. Cleaning the Print Head deeply consumes more ink than the standard cleaning of the Print Head, so clean the Print Head deeply only when necessary.
    1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

    2. Clean the Print Head deeply. (1) Press the g0022565.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until y appears. g0054776.png
    (2) Press the Black or Color button.
    The machine starts cleaning the Print Head deeply. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the deep cleaning of the Print Head. This takes about 2 minutes.

    3. Check the print head condition.

    When the deep cleaning is completed, the LED returns to the copy standby mode. To check the print head condition, print the nozzle check pattern.

    See " Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern".

    If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the Print Head deeply again after 24 hours.
    If the problem is still not resolved, replace the FINE Cartridge with a new one.

    See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".
    If the problem is still not resolved after replacing the FINE Cartridge, contact the service center.

    Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
    Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles.

    NOTE If the remaining ink level is low, the nozzle check pattern will not be printed correctly. Replace the FINE Cartridge whose ink is low.
    See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".



    You need to prepare: a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

    1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

    2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.

    3. Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

    4. Print the nozzle check pattern.

    (1) Press the g0020617.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until A appears. g0054754.png
    (2) Press the Black or Color button.

    The nozzle check pattern will be printed.

    5. Examine the nozzle check pattern.
    See Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern.

    Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern

    Examine the nozzle check pattern, and clean the Print Head if necessary.

    1. Check if there are missing lines in the pattern (1) or horizontal white streaks in the pattern (2). g0054755.png (1) Check if lines are missing in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
    See " Cleaning the Print Head".

    g0020623.png
    (A) Good
    (B) Bad (lines are missing)

    (2) Check if horizontal white streaks are present in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
    See " Cleaning the Print Head".
    g0020621.png
    (A) Good
    (B) Bad (horizontal white streaks are present)

    · SP2-902-2, no.13: IPU Test Pattern – Cross Stitch – 600 dpi

    1. Perform SP2-109-8 (Beam Pitch Data Reset).

    2. Input the value for 400 dpi that is printed on the LD unit into SP2-109-1.
    Use the value printed after “P” on the new LD unit as shown below.
    NOTE: Do not use values printed after a “V”.

    (These value numbers are on a sticker inside the machine with a UPC code on it. The numbers are just under the UPC barcode. And example number looks like this: "15980300151P: 120, 172", so the example 400 dpi value here is "120".)

    3. Press the “Enter” key.

    4. Perform SP2-109-3.

    5. Print the 400-dpi test pattern onto A3 (11”x17”) paper using SP2-902-2 no.12
    (cross stitch). (See Service Tables - Test Pattern Printing - Section 4.2.3, pasted below.)

    6. Write the value of SP2-109-1 on the test pattern which was input at step 2.

    7. Change the value of SP2-109-1 and print another test pattern, repeating steps
    2 to 5. Print about 5 patterns with different values for SP2-109-1 (e.g. “48”, “96”,
    “192”, “240”).

    8. Check this test pattern. If the laser beam pitch is not correct, the image looks
    like a black vertical stripe pattern.
    NOTE: If the laser beam pitch is correct, the vertical stripe is not so noticeable.
    If the value is not correct, the vertical stripe pattern is darker.

    9. Adjust the laser beam pitch position until the thin lines are of uniform thickness
    (no striping effect should appear on the printout), doing steps 2, 3, and 4. (In
    step 2, input a value which is estimated to be correct, then do steps 3 and 4,
    then if necessary go back to step 2 and try another value.)

    10. After adjusting the laser beam pitch for 400 dpi, adjust the laser beam pitch for
    600 dpi, using the same procedure as for 400 dpi (use the SP modes for 600
    dpi).

    .

    4.2.3 TEST PATTERN PRINTING (SP2-902)
    NOTE: Do not operate the machine until the test pattern is printed out completely.
    Otherwise, an SC may occur.

    1. Access the SP mode which contains the test pattern you need.

    2. Press exit, then touch the “Copy Mode” key on the operation panel to access
    the copy mode display.

    3. Select the paper size.

    Color problem


    Did you try alignment of color convergence in setting up. Try this
    1 Press MENU
    2 Select SET UP
    3 Select CONVERGENCE
    4 Select screen mode ZOOM this accesses the center convergence adjustment.Press set/enter
    5 Use arrow keys to aline the red cross to the white cross.Press set/enter
    6 Use arrow keys to alingn the blue line in the same manner. Once adjustment is complete press MENU to turn the menu off.
    I hope this helps if you cant move the red or blue lines you face the same problem I face. I still havent gotton any solutions to my post about being unable to adjust the red line.You could also call Pioneer's help line 800-421-1404.
