Question about ASK Proxima C420 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Colors are distorting e.g. Blue streak across top of viewing field

Getting color distortion and mainly the top of the projection is opaque blue and some shots are showing yellow on the rest of the picture when it should be white background. This would seem to be electronic in nature and can it be fixed at a reasonable cost?

Unfortunately not. the discoloration is caused by the light filter getting fried due to excessive dust and heat. and you cannot purchase the parts individually. you'll have to replace the entire optical engine.

I sometimes have a vertical line of distortion in the middle of my projection on my HP3135. It most usually occurs with dark colors but not always and also doesn't happen when the menu screen is being...


most likely the dmd board on the rear of the lens assy, but the main board can't be ruled out either. you can take it apart and try cleaning both ends of the connection between the main and the dmd and then reseating this firmly, it that doesn't work unless you know which part to replace, you should have it repaired. I have been frustrated working on projectors like this before and given a good hard but controlled slap on the top of the unit and the problem has gone away, but sometimes only for a minute or so.

How to fix yellow hue center bottom of picture.what causes this


Most often color distortion is due to the bulb wearing out. Projector bulbs often fade or distort colors before they actually burn out. The other thing you can try is to reset the projector to it's factory settings, which sometimes fixes color issues. It's usually an option in the "settings" area of the menu.

My NEC mt1075 projector is projecting a shade of blue all over. The entire screen is showing the correct image, but also with a shade of blue. I think something is wrong with the internal wiring. Is this a...


If you're using component video (red/green/blue rca cables) one of the colors may be disconnected, or the wires may be swapped into the wrong color input. If you are using a 15 pin VGA connector, one of the pins may not be getting good contact at the source or at the projector. Or if the VGA cable is split into 5-wire to make a long cable run, one of the five wires may be disconnected. Any of these problems will cause a global color shift while not affecting the color of the projector's on screen menus.

Images has a blue color across the center


Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

Color problems


i don't know if this will work but..... I have an Optoma h27 and we were having problems with the color and ours is mounted on the ceiling in inverted also; and after two years we started having color problems, come to find out that on the menu there is a option for high altitude and that had been turned to the "off" position (probably by our kids resetting all the options and not turning this one back on)..... after taking it to a tech that cleaned it for $97.00 and said there was no problems he could find, we played around with the remote/menu and came across this high altitude option and when we saw it was on the "off" position, we put it to the "on" position and another fan inside the projector came on and that helps to keep the inside of the projector cool at all time and helps from the color becoming weird..... Try this on yours and hopefully that will solve your problem.
