Question about Epson - PowerLite S1+ Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Epson S1+ Projector has thin vertical lines on video projection

The projector has functioned beautifully for about 175 hours of DVD and VHS video projection. Only very recently has it started displaying thin vertical lines both when projecting a video image, or when at the standard DVD player menu. At first my assumption was that I lost pixles, but these lines are too perfectly spaced, and span the width of the screen. The video is viewable, but poor quality due to the lines. However, when sources are unplugged and it projects the Epson blue screen the image is perfectly clear.

I've tried a different DVD unit and a different composite video cord. Problem still exists. FYI, I checked the troubleshooting manual, and don't believe these vertical lines are the same as what is referred to in the manual, as that references adjusting tracking to impacy frequency between a computer and the projector.

Help on this one would be most appreciated.

SOURCE: Epson PowerLite S1+

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.

SOURCE: Epson projector issue

I've found my solution. My troubleshooting info said to go to "signal" and make sure that "auto" was turned on. However, I couldn't find "auto" when I first tried. There are two places where signal comes up. The second one is under "set-up" and that is where you turn "auto" on. It works perfectly now. I hope this helps. For the icons, make sure you have "mirror image" turned on in your displays preferences if you're on a Mac. Good luck.

SOURCE: computer screen doesn't project onto wall

There is a function f-key combo that you need to toggle on your laptop. I'm assuming that you are just using a laptop. Depending on the manufacturer, the f-key will have either a square with a line beside either side. Maybe it says ctr/lcd, or it looks like two squares side by side. You will have to press the fn key at the same time as the corresponding f-key, up to three times, depending on manufacturer.

SOURCE: images has a blue color across the center

Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

My Epson EMP-S1 projector shows pink color with VGA input only, ok with video input and menu screen. What can be the problem?


With the VGA you have a bad cable or a bad input jack. I would bet on the cable first. You are missing the green or the blue on the screen and that is why the red/pink is more pronounced now.

Image is upside down on the screen


Alot of projectors (being all projectors that are designed to be hung from a roof) have an image flip function. This is because when you install a projector in a roof you have to flip the projector upside down so the projector doesn't have to be pointed down and doesn't cause any problems with keystoning.
If you have just bought a new projector and installed it in the roof or perhaps bought it second hand and are projecting from the floor (when the previous owner may have had it in the roof), you will need to go through the menu screen until you find this setting. I don't know exactly what Epson call this function but it should be in there somewhere. If you have it on the floor you want image flip off, if you have it in the roof you want vertical image flip on, horizontal image flip is for when your projecting onto a special screen surface from behind the screen.

Whe the projector is switched on and power light goes to solid green only a blank screen appears (basically only th lamp light) nothing else.


Be sure your input from the source is good. If a PC you may have to toggle the F8 or F5 to change the dispay to the projector. You can set the projector for AUTO Search to check all inputs at start up. If your doing WiFi or DVD/VHS player, be sure your using the outputs from those devices and that they match the projector input.

I have two Panasonic PT-LB10VU projectors doing the same thing. They project find with RGB, but when trying to project a VHS tape through video, the image rolls or has multiple lines running through it. ...


first of all you replace the present video driver VHS tape and try any other dvd driver or any other video device if problem exist then the main board of you projector is faulty.

Solution: open the upper over remove 5 screw back side of projector.
disconnect the panel ribbon cable.Remove lamp cover with 3 screw remove main board with 4 screw and 8 connector. put it face down on a table and use a table lamp for more light.
check very carefully the area I show in the picture with red arrow there is a resistor no.R041(on resistor 750) is burn out or black replace witch 75ohm resistor and check around the resistor if burn any other component replace with the same after repair of main board fix the all part of projector as you open. Power on and use any video device other than your VHS tape maybe the high voltage comes on video output.
if fault exist then need to be replaced the main board. good_help_11.jpg

Thin vertical line appears on projector


I have found that vertical lines that suddenly appear from projectors are due to poorly connected cables. Sut off your projector and wait for the fan to go off. Then unplug the connectors from the computer to the projector and secure them again, making sure to go all the way. Hope this helps.
