20 Most Recent Mitsubishi ColorView XL30U Multimedia Projector Questions & Answers

This projector has three LCD screens followed by a prism to converge the screens and project the light. Lack of maintenance is the usual cause.
If the lamp is old, it will produce more and more UV light that will burn, usually the first colour, the blue LCD panel giving a greenish hue starting from the centre of the screen and working outwards.
If the filters are blocked, this will damage the LCD screens.
The screens are available from Mitsubishi but maybe cheaper to replace the projector as they are very expensive and fitting is a specialised job.

the light filter on one of the lecd panels is fried due to excessive dust and heat. unfortunately, you'll have to replace the entire optical engine, as the manufacturer does not sell individual parts.

There should be an adjustment in the menu for "keystone". That should do what you want.

This sounds like an overheat issue and requires return under warrantee.

If you're using the VGA port, you'll see the banding because it's not really showing 720p, it's doing scaling (I'm not sure from what resolutions it's scaling). So, even though you're using VGA at 1280x720, the scaling is still going on and it's showing the banding.

You have to use HDMI to get true 720p.

Hello Media Man,

Looks like your projector has done it. Thats acommon trouble to ageing polirising lens, usually the blue. less blue, the green and red make up the yellowish image on the screen. The blue is bombarded with tremendous heat from the lamp and it fade and wash out. If its free, its worth replacing. Get quote for the poliriser; 2 pieces each color.
Good Luck.

Hi Greg147

The resetting is not done in the menu.

Plug in your power cable - Machine is now in standby mode.

Then Hold down the left and right arrow keys on the Projector and press the power button. You'll see a indicator light on top of the Projector flashing twice - Lamp hours is now reset.

Hope this is of help.
