Question about Mitsubishi SL4SU ColorView Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

When trying to watch a film off the computer through the projector the colour red comes out green on the projector.

I have purchased a mitsubishi SL4SU projector and it works fine when im watching cable all the colours are fine, but as soon as i hook up my laptop to the projector the colours all turn funny. The colour red comes out a dark green colour and as a whole the entire picture is kinda washed out.
The colours on my laptop are absolutly fine they just dont seem to translate through to the projector.
I would really really appreciate any help as this is starting to drive me crazy.
I also had this same problem with my last projector, any chance someone could give me step by step help as i dont have a manuel.
Thankyou in advance.

Check your cable and use a different laptop or desktop to eliminate the projector. always do a factory reset.

I hv Sanyo PLC-SU07N Projector - the image is blue


I have a possible solution however it may not be THE solution your after, you'll probably be able to tell very quickly if it isn't, this will only apply if you are using either a component video signal or a PC/laptop signal to send to the projector.

If you are using a laptop or desktop to hook up your projector, I would try first of all double checking that it's correctly plugged in, and if you still have no luck try a different cable.
It's likely to be the cable because when the signal goes down the cable it's split into 5 different signals. 3 of these are the colour information for Red, Green and Blue. Depending on what you mean by 'image is blue', it could mean that your either not getting the information for Red, or your not getting the information for Red AND Green. If you want to test this, open up microsoft paint while connected to the projector and create 3 boxes, then fill 1 completely red, 1 completely green and one completely blue. If you are missing the information to any of these colours then that colour will appear black on the projector screen.

In component video the signal is split down 3 cables (rather than 5) and 2 are colours (rather than 3)... Red and Blue. Check that the cable running red (Usually labelled Pr on the DVD and projector) is completely plugged in (some of these are really tight, but it's important that it goes all the way) and also that you have plugged into the correct slot, for instance that you have plugged into Pr and not the right Audio channel, both of which are coloured red.

If you are still not having any luck then I would suggest using a computer monitor or a television (depending on what type of signal your sending it) to test the projector. Plug it in instead of the projector and if it works then the issue lies with the projector and I have at least narrowed it down for you.

Hope this has been helpful.

Hi I have a Sanyo PLC-XP18 projector and it has recently developed a problem. I was watching a film the other night and the projector just cut out. Now when i try and turn the projector on the the fans...


READY light is green when the projector is ready to be switched on
LAMP is dim when the projector is ON, but goes bright when it reverts to STANDBY.

Check that the lamp cover is fully down and the cover switch is activated

I see no red and green colors on screen projected by pjtx 100, the rest of the colors are visible.


If you are using a component video cable (Red, Green, Blue) you may simply be missing the Red cable. It may not be fully plugged in.
You can verify that this is the case by: 1. Unplugging all video cables 2. Plug in the green cable, you should see a black and white image. 3. Plug in the blue cable, you should see some colours coming through. 4. Plug in the red cable, you should see all colours properly.
If not, unplug the blue and red cables and plug the blue cable into the red port. The colours will look incorrect, skin tones will be blue. If the colour comes through the problem is the cable. If the colour does not come through, the problem may be the projector.

There are colour flashes when i watch black and white films on my infocus projector.Usaualy if i look a way from the screen for a second or as if i'm blinking


Hello,
By any chance is your source PAL?
What you are describing is caused by a slower frame rate ie. PAL accompanied by the natural persistence of the human eye. If you reduce the brightness level or turn a light on you will be able to reduce these artifacts.

You would hate watching TV in Europe ;)

A DMD has no inherent colour capability - it's just a configurable mirror array. If you want to do full-colour projection, then, you'd expect that you'd have to use three DMDs and three coloured filters - red, green and blue.
But if a single DMD's switched in synchrony with a rotating "colour wheel" - a spinning tri-colour filter that lets through red, green and blue light in turn - then the very rapid switching speed of the DMD lets it lay down red, green and blue images in such fast succession that the result is a perfect colour image.
You can do the same trick with a single LCD panel, but it's not a good idea; LCDs are transmissive, rather than reflective, devices, and block something like half of the light that tries to get through them. To maximise brightness in LCD projectors, a three-panel design works better. If you try to pump the entire output of a super-bright lamp through one LCD, keeping it cool becomes rather challenging.
The extreme smallness of the moving parts on a DMD mean that it behaves like a solid state device, not a mechanical one. For all their complexity, DMDs have very high Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), and well-made projectors based on DMDs can be expected to last easily as long as LCD units, and probably longer. If a DLP projector fails, it's not at all likely to be because there's something wrong with the DMD.

Colour picture just went off


Hi biga63

I trust that you used the normal Video ( Composite ) Cable while viewing movies ?

Have you tried using another Composite cable ?

When using the S-Video - press the Source button on either your remote or Projector - untill you get to S-video.

If it still doesn't respond I'm afraid your Mainboard has a fault on it and will have to be repaired by a technician.

Colour problems with projector


In short If the reds show as red, The greens show as green & Blue shows as blue. I would say thats as good as it can project. It's hard to judge color without seeing it for ones self but usually DLP projectors that use a colorwheel do not have perfect color.
