Hello all,

I recently get and installed a used JVC DLA-RS2U rojector with a Screen Innovations 100' Screen. I have it ceiling mounted.

The projector is working well, the picture is awesome. I'm only having an issue with the picture size.

When I zoom the picture to fill the horizontal axis of the screen the vertical axis of the picture goes past the screen frame. If I zoom out the picture to have the vertical axis of the picture "in" the screen then, I get "side bars" with no picture. It seems as if it was stuck on a stretch mode.

I looked through the manual and the projector menus, but only found one stretch option which makes the issue worse, further stretching the picture vertically.

Does anyone have any experience/input on this?

Or

Is ther a way to reset the projector to factory default settings?
Thanks in advance.

The JVC I believe has some interenal test patterns, but you do want to ensure that all settings are zeroed out (or centered) if possible.

I'm under the assumption that you purchased a 1.78:1 screen (16:9) which is the proper one for that projector.

You are correct. I got a 16:9 screen. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow.

Thanks

What source are you feeding it?

Have you ensured that your source is sending out 1080p, 1080i, or 720p video material?

What type of connection are you making between the source and the projector?

Is this stretching the same across all of your sources?

If you are going through an A/V receiver, have you tried bypassing it to go straight from the source to the projector?

If it is only one source causing this issue, then it is more likely the source. Cable boxes are notorious for having aspect ratio controls and resolution settings which must be set properly for compatibility.

DVD players also have screen setup options which must be set.

Blu-ray Disc players are most typically accurate right from the box and a BD player should always be used with modern projectors for decent results.

Currently I'm (only) using a PS3 as (source) the Blu-ray Player

Yes, it is sending HD signal 1080p

What type of connection are you making between the source and the projector?
HDMI from receiver to projector

I'm going through a Pioneer Elite VSX-92TXH Receiver.

Attached is a pic of a test pattern where you can see how the vertical axis passed the frame (bottom arrows barely visible).
