Epson powerlite 720c projector

Just purchased a used projector and the image has a green line horizontally a little above the halfway point. The portion of the image above the line is lighter than the lower part and the far left portion of the screen has a very red tint to it from top to bottom. The edges of both of these tints do not seem to fade but are pretty definitive. The lamp has 720 hours on it. I am using component video on a 25 foot cord from a dvd player to the computer connection on the projector. I have tried both inputs for component video and this is the best.

Is there hope for my projector or is this a major problem?

SOURCE: greenish tint

Not sure if this is the solution, but I believe the color polarizer filters have been burned. I have a yellow haze circle on mine and I'm pretty sure that's the problem. In my case the blue filter is burned, leaving the red and green stronger yeilding a yellow blur.

SOURCE: The color on my Epson

Two possible solutions:

1) The video mode is set to Component/RGB instead of VGA.

2) The cable you have may have a break inside of it.

Let me know if you find anything.

Epson 460 powerlite hooked to smartboard green light blinking and no image.


Yes this is most likely the lamp. Does it eventually go back to just a red light?

Epson 3lcd projector emits blue light


If the image has got a blue discolouration on it, the lcd panel may have burnt out. It will gradually get worse. I think it may be too costly to repair as a new projectors can be purchased for just over £200. I recently purchased 7x NEC NP115. They are good spec and good price.

Good luck, hope I was helpful to you

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.

My Epson Powerlite 5350 has a ghost image. Any recommendation on how to adjust the projector to remove this symptom?


I've got the same problem on two Epson EMP7300.
I believe (from reading about other projectors) that the ghost image can be adjusted with RS232 codes.
Does anyone know how to do this?

One of our Epson PowerLite projectors was working


We found that the bulb was dim because it was about to burn out. The projector's filter han't been kept clean, causing it to run hot, which in turn shortened the bulb's life.

Epson powerlite s4 projector is pink


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 red color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the red panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image. This causes a nice red hue to the whole screen.

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.

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.

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