So I've had this problem with my projector for a while now and haven't been able to figure out the problem. If you look at the image linked below you'll see there is some sort of almost refection of the taskbar of what is already being displayed on screen, and it's really noticeable in high contrast screens in movies, or when subtitles are being displayed. I think the problem is there is a condensation looking mark inside the projector lens, but I'm unable to take the lens apart unless I take the whole thing apart. Thanks for any help.

I don't know if I've ever seen this before, and I certainly don't have a good answer to the problem. It seems rather 'unfixable' to me.

I would pull the projector off of any mount it is on and run some tests with it. Flip it right side up. If using lens shift, move the projector so you are using less to try it out and see what happens.

It may be reflections off the interior of the chassis, but that's really unusual and not something I've heard of before.

Not sure what happens if you turn down contrast settings or try different picture modes either.
