This is a convergence problem that is not easily repaired by a homeowner. This unit should see a servicer.

The convergence is off. The convergence is basically the assimilation of the image on the screen from the three "guns" behind the screen. There should be a menu option to align the convergence in the image portion of the menu. If this does not fix the issue, then your convergence chip might be on it's last leg.

How do I get rid of the dark shadow across the top of the screen?

This is actually a fairly common issue with the NEC projectors, especially if they are mounted from the ceiling (upside down). The problem is the compartment immediately after the bulb. What happens is the 'paste' they use to adhere the glass prisms to it's plastic component wears off overtime due to the immense heat from the bulb being projected onto it. The glass prism piece ends up leaning against the bulb compartment creating the annoying 'shadow'.

Heads up; you will need to take apart almost the whole projector. You'll need to expose the mirror array to get to the compartment just after the bulb. Once you've dissassembled the projector down to the mirror array, take out the problem part. It's a small black plastic cube frame that's held in by a screw and has 3 glass/plastic prism pieces. Looking down at the disassembled projector, you may not be able to see the glass/plastic prism pieces but I can assure you that it is the small compartment immediately after the bulb compartment.

Once you've identified the component and taken it out, you'll see the prism piece(s). The problem prism is the one that sits closest to the bulb and it was either slightly loose or had fallen off completely. Please note that there is another one of these exact prisms on the other side of the assembly you pulled out just behind the plastic looking prism. This secondary one come loose very rarely but if it does, you'll need to fix that too.

The Fix: Since the component is going to be exposed to immense heat again, you'll need to buy an adhesive that can withstand that heat (think at least a few hundred degrees for safety sake). I bought the JB-Weld Steel Reinforced Epoxy since it can withstand heat up to 550F. Make sure you read the instructions before starting. An added suggestion is to scrape all the old residue from the old adhesive off the component and prism(s) first, then scratch some grooves into the connecting pieces and apply the epoxy/adhesive. Do not scratch up the actual prism itself; scratch the 'extra' glass on the prism piece where it will connect with the plastic component. The grooves help the epoxy bind to the pieces and I highly suggest this since I've had to re-do a few in under a year. Let the epoxy set for a good 24 hours before putting the projector back together.

How to fix mirrors on NEC NP400 projector?

Hello there,

I know this problem all too well so my answer may be what you (and others) are looking for in the following thread:

Basically what happens is a prism in the projector has become dislodged due to the cheap adhesive they use and the extreme heat it's subjected to. Some JB-Weld Steel Reinforced Epoxy will fix it right up. Just read my instructions in the above link.

Sony LCD Projector - burned prisms

I have the same projector, but my problem is with red.

A replacement prism assembly is about $2k.

If you can get your hands on another projector for cheap, that's your only hope. You can swap out the blue lcd panel from your prism with someone else... it's a bit of mucking around, but worth it of you can.
