Question about Sanyo PLC XP30 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Sanyo Projector PLC-XP30

When in use this projector is struggling to show white balance cues. Instead we see a dull yellow color. This projector is used in a church setting for Sunday worship. On a standard Powerpoint slide with a dark background and words in white, only about 20% of the words are in white, the other 80% of the slide is in the dull yellow color. Could this be an internal problem. A new bulb was installed about 5 weeks ago, and until October 19 is has been working fine. It's alomost as if this "color change" got bigger during the sevice on Oct 19.

SOURCE: Sanyo PLC-XU58 projector completly dead

I had the same problem and the technician diagnosed as being caused by a faulty Ballast which he said caused the bulb to fail. He didn't test the bulb but his experience indicates that even if the bulb was not blown it would have been stressed and it would only be a short time before it fails completely.

When these fail there is no real reason for it it seems but it has been suggested that a probable cause could be not cleaning the filter, at least every six months. The result of a dirty filter would be overheating and this could be the cause of the failure.

SOURCE: can not make picture bigger on my Sanyo PLC-SW20 projector

depending on the size of the surface you are projecting on, and what the zoom capacity of your lens is, you probably only have one choice available to you, and that is to move your projector farther away from what you are trying to project onto.....

hope this helps!

If it is a nice circle and growing it could be a bad LCD filter.

The filters are starting to show their age. This is a normal occurance for projectors and is the result of heat. The filters and/or the mirrors might need to be changed.

Projectors screen turns yellow,on and off,after awhile has been looking white

You are describing Color Decay. Welcome to the world of LCD projectors. The blue device is the first to go, thus the yellow fringe. You must have about 3-4000 hours on the projector. Replace the product with a dlp product and it will last a lifetime, or until you want something with newer features.
