This sounds more like a Lcd fault than bulb after such a short time after bulb replacement ,however I did have this come up once and the customer had kept his unit in a cold place then took it out to use hence due to the heat from the lamp Condensation dulled the mirrors .After they warmed up all was ok untill the next time solution I told him to store it somewhere warm .. havent heard from him since except for his stereo repair , and you don't want to know what the fur substance in that turned out to be lol
if it is an lcd fault you may find a replacement of ebay a cheaper solution ... Regards Vortash

ps and the beauty of that is you could sell your old unit minus the bulb as spares and repair and get some of your money back you just spent on the replacement .. lol

Hello,

I think this is a lamp issue. Even though your lamp might have an advertised time of 3000 hrs from Dell, it can fail and dim a lot earlier than that. Often within 1000 hrs a projector lamp's brightness can be reduced by up to 40%. Projector lamps brightness and lamp life varies according to how you use your projector and the environment it is in. Our company sells projector lamps and has created a YouTube video to help people get the most out of their projector lamps. You can see the video below. If you decide to buy a new lamp we have the lamp you need in stock at Projector Lamp Experts.

Hope this helps..

Image is dim. How do I adjust brightness


You can adjust the brightness through the user menu, under the picture option. You might want to look at your bulb. It might be time to replace the lamp.

There could be several reasons for this problem.
1. New lamp needed.
2. New lamp did not fix? Could be mirror tunnel behind the color wheel than can collapse causing "dim" light source or dark lines.
3. All items "greyed" out caused when the unit does not sense a source input, ie computer or tv tuner. After connecting to a source, you should be able to go and adjust contrast and/or brightness settings
