Question about ViewSonic PJ1060 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Blue on one side of the screen.

When I turn on the projector (PJ1060), the whole right side, it is blue. You can see througth the blue and continue to watch what you are watching. The blue has a straight edge to it. And so you know, the blue takes up about 1/3 of the screen. Any suggestions as to what it might be? Can I fix it myself? Ballpark on how much it would cost me? Thanks!!!

Re: Blue on one side of the screen.

As a first step, check for dust and dirt in the optics of the unit, sometimes they can cause these kinds of problems. if not, Look at the filters attached to the blue LCD panel. If I remember correctly it has a dark "yellow" mirrored surface. I have had one go bad and give the same symptoms. It looked like it may have had an optical flaw that "captured" the intense light rather than passing it thru it. As time passed it got worse. The replacement filter fixed it.

Blue haze in top right of screen from NEC mt1075 projector

the light filter on the blue lcd panel is fried due to excessive dust and heat. clean out the projector with canned air. unfortunately, you cannot buy individual parts of the optical engine- you'll have to replace the whole thing. or live with it.

Two vertical blue bands on right side of screen, get worse as movie progresses, and black areas look really blue. Air cleaned entire projector per manual instructions. Also rotated both blue IN and blue...

with the projector off, remove the cover and unplug the blue lcd panel ribbon cable from the main board and reinsert it. you have to unlock the cable first (either the clip goes up or out, but do not force). if that does not solve the problem, you have a faulty lcd panel.

PC connected to projector shows only in Blue

Are you saying that the projection is solid blue? Is it similar to, say, the desktop on the laptop screen? Try moving your mouse off to the right side of the laptop. Did it show up on projector? Exciting! Try dragging stuff over. Damn, this is sweet.

Sharp notevision xgnv6xu oval yellow spot

I have a similar issue with yellow pattern on the left and top right of my screen. Took it apart and found the blue lcd had damage that matched the yellow area that was projected. I thought it was the lens but it was the blue lcd .It has gone bad and no replacement. Are you interested in selling the bulb or the whole projector? I have since purchased another projector and am keeping the bad one for spare parts. Hope this helps..Ben

Bright yellow

I can't imagine a setting that would cause this - It sound more like some sort of fault with the projector's blue LCD panel. (The image is created from a mix of red, green and blue light. If you loose the blue, everything will look yellow.)

Is it capable of showing any shades of blue?

Using any graphics or photo-editing software, create a solid blue image (R=0, G=0, B=255 in your colour settings) and if possible, display this full-screen. Is there any output from the projector at all when you do?

If not, it sounds like it need a professional repair.

How do you change the lcd panels on a hitachicrr-s55 projector

Hi Eddie

Rather take out the whole LCD unit with prism and replace it.

It is situated in the front of the unit , you can't miss it.

Tip : Don't try and replace only the faulty LCD - IT WILL TURN OUT A DISASTER if you have'nt done it before.

Blue tinting appearing on the right side of screen on vpl-es1 projector

A warning in the manual was given as to be carefull when using this projector with games as some parts of the screen will not move, just like if you watch Tv on it and there is a channel logo in one corner that doesn't move! It burns the display like it would on a pc monitor if no screen saver set. This is not a problem you can fix, that is perminant damage to the lcd in the projector!! S Platt
