A blue hue

The sony projector is displaying a bluish hue on screen. One projector has it on top and another has it on the outsides in a circular manner. color correcting does not fix it. What could be the problem and how to fix it? They are about 5 -6yrs old. Thanks

Re: A blue hue

If color correcting does not fix the problem you will probably need some professional equipment in order to fix it. It would probably be best to contact a professional service provider.

Noticed a yellow hue in the centre of the image projected by BOTH of my second-hand Sony VPL PX40's.

Bit of a common problem with Sony projectors of the era that they often had problems with fading and/or cracking of one or more the LCD panels - especially the blue ones for some reason, leading to the type of problem you are experiencing. No point in swapping components either as they will both have similar faults - although replacing an LCD in a video projector is almost impossible without the manufacturers jigs to mechanically align them afterwards anyway...

There is too much blue on the screen & not enough green coloring

Have a very close look at the blue and see if it's perfectly uniform across the whole screen.
If it is then altering the hue or colour temperature settings in the menu may help.
If it's not then either there are heaps of pixel failures (appearing as small rectangular spots) or degradation of the polarisers (green may be affected more than the others).
If you show the menu, do the white areas appear bluish.
If the lamp is very old then colour changes start to happen.

Is the whole screen bluish in colour or just areas. If you look closely at the screen are the bluish areas composed of rectangular pixel shapes. If it is then the blue lcd panel may have dead pixels, otherwise it's a glass polarizer plate that may be degraded due to aging.

KDS-R50XBR1 has a yellow hue in the lower right hand corner of the screem

Hi JimmyDeps

If there is a yellow hue I would guess that this a LCD TV right ?

Which means that the blue LCD has gone and will have to be replaced.
