We have quite a few of these projectors in our classrooms but one in particular is giving me issues. It is ceiling mounted and, being that the projector is not perpendicular with the screen, I needed to adjust the keystone to make the image fit onto the whiteboard. The problem is the projector doesn't hold the keystone setting when powered off. Also, when coming out of Blank mode (video mute), the keystone also resets itself. It can be re-adjusted but the settings don't stay which annoys the teacher (and me as well) that she has to reset the keystone every time she wants to use the projector. I tried performing a hard reset on the projector which didn't help. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This sounds like a Viewsonic issue. I am not a fan of their projectors for this exactly type of random stupidity. I have seen similarly weird issues with a few of their projectors. You should call them, and if the projector is under warranty, see if it can be swapped out or if they have a firmware update or something which may be of some help.

That's about it though. Quirky projector issues are best dealt with by the manufacturer most often.

Good luck!

Thanks for the information. I will give it shot.
