Sharp XG-C50X has a blue tint horizontaly on the image.
Our XG-C50X was recently re-lamped and also had the fish eye lens replaced. Installed it back and now there is a blue tint across the image. Other posts describe this as possibly a bad (blue) LCD panel. It seems as though we had another issue simalar with another of our XG's a few years ago that was under warranty. Sharp repaired it and I'm thinking they called it a Prism????. Is this the same part? Either way...how hard is it to repair? Where can I get the part? Any other thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Re: Sharp XG-C50X has a blue tint horizontaly on the...
Blue tint can be cause of bad blue lcd and this symptom can come when LCDs have dust layer inside.
Prism is complete 3 LCDs assembly with all built in filters.
I would suggest 2 solutions...
1) unplug and replug Blue LCd ribbon cable with care in circuit board.
2) remove lamp and blow air in prism assembly to remove dust inside with air-blower. try to blow air in all possible slots / ways what you find there.

Sharp makes light and compact projectors with low fan noise. Set the projector up in areas subject to minimal humidity and dust to avoid having to clean the lens too often. Remember that colors will get washed out if the screen is in direct sunlight. Learn a few troubleshooting techniques to get the most out of this work horse projector.
No Pictures, Sound or the Projector Fails to Start
If you have no pictures, sound or the projector fails to start, check that the power cord is plugged into the wall and that all the cables are connected to the rear panel. Make sure the remote control batteries are fresh. If you are using a notebook computer, make sure the screen output is correct. Check the Input Mode on the projector. Check the projector physically--is the lamp and cover in place? Check the key lock.
if the buttons don't work or the leds are not on the projector, it has a power problem. make sure the outlet for the projector is functioning. if still nothing, the bimetal breaker on the projector may have tripped due to overheating. you'll need to remove the top cover. the bimetal has a small red button and is located on the lamp housing. push in the button to reset it. also make sure that the lamp door and the lens cover are completely installed and that the blue switches for them are not broken. this will also cause it not to turn on.
either the light filter before the blue lcd is fried or the 2nd fly-eye lens is. take the lamp out and shine a flashlight through the glass in the projector. if you see blackened burn marks on the other side of the glass, the fly-eye lens is burnt and needs replacing (but is currently out of stock). if not, it's the lcd light filter (which is in stock).
I am having this exact problem with this projector. It has been doing this for over a year now. I am happy to see that I am not the only one. Not happy that you do not seem to have had any suggestions on how to fix it. We have even changed the bulb and the problem still persists.
