Question about Dell 3300MP Multimedia Projector

3 Answers

Bought 3 MP3300 projectors for presentation projects

One of the projectors had the color disk broken. Being a technician myself, I opened the projector and took the color disk part out. The other two projectors seem to be fine. However, after I bought 3 new lamps from ebay, out of the 3, only one gives me images. After connecting a PC with a VGA cable, I don't get any images. Called Dell support, and after half hour trouble shooting, we didn't accomplished anything. We left it to use other VGA cables. I did that and still doesn't work. Now I am out with 3 projectors and 3 lamps and the worst part, I can not even find a local place to bring them for repairs.
Can you help, I live in Fremont, California, Bay Area.
I really appreciated any great advices.
Thanks & best regards,
Felix Trejo

You can replace the colorwheel yourself, but unfortunately dell does not sell parts. you need to send the projectors in for repair. and like the other guy said, never buy lamps from e-bay.

Felix, lesson one, never buy a bulb off ebay...

with the projector operating by itself do you get a menu displayed off the projector. If yes, it would appear that the ribbon cable from the front end electronic are not making a good connection. After replacing color wheel are the colors correct some times you need to set the index.
Let me know

OK first thing if you have broken the disk on a DLP projector, you can not repair with out specialist equipment to set it up, as for your other ones it sounds like your lamps are faulty, you must not use lamps over the rated hrs or you will damage the projector, if you want more help just ask me but unfortunatly in am in the UK so cant vist.

They (Apple) might be right. It could be that the projector is damaged, like the bulb, or it could be incompatible with your computer, but I don't think that is the case. Try taking the projector to a computer repair place.

It appears that your light engine is broken, I have the same problem. Have you recently changed the bulb with a non-panasonic part bought on the internet. I did this and think thats what caused the problem. I believe the new bulb burn at a higher temp thus causing damage to the Light engine filters

Dell 2300mp projector, colors bad


try reseating the vga cable. Try removing the cable, the green tint should disappear meaning that the color or lack of one of the primary colors blue/red/green were missing due to bad connection. or maybe you have a bad vga cable.

NEC LT35 color problem


If you're trying to project video, then the unit needs professional service. If you're trying to project from a computer, you may have a loose display cable, broken pins in one or both ends of the display cable, or broken conductors (wires) within the display cable. The computer sends its image information as a template of RED image components, GREEN image components and BLUE image components with the projector overlays to create the complete image with blended color values. (The computer also sends HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL synchronization signals, but those don'e affect the color content of the projected image.) That's why I'm suspicious of the display cable, conductors or pins.

JVC HDTV Pictrure Distortion


Your TV needs to be calibrated. Rear projection TVs are very sensitive to movement. They have 3 color canons that need to be precisely aligned so that the colors overlay each other. They are like three projectors all aimed at the same screen.

If you were to enter the User Menu on the TV, you should find an alignment/calibration choice that will re-align the colors using some on-screen help.

If you are not able to resolve the situation on your own, a certified ISF Calibrationist should be called.

And, since you've bought this TV used, it should be cleaned by a professional (the canons, lenses, etc.)
