I have a Benq HT1070. The projected image touches the top and bottom of my 100″ screen but doesn’t reach the left and right by about 2″-4″. The angles are square so I’m confused. What really dumb thing am I missing here?
Follow the steps given in this article to fix the projector won’t fill screen issue.
