Question about Epson - PowerLite S1+ Multimedia Projector
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
