Question about Sanyo PLC-SW30 Multimedia Projector

Yellowed image projection

I have an issue with the quality of projection. The image itself is clear and legible however there is a strong yellow cast to a portion of the image when projecting. When the projector is powered on and projecting only light (not connected to a laptop), the same shape appears but as a darker blue. I've tried replacing the lamp and power cord with no change. Help!

The yellow you see is all dust on the mirrrors inside your projector.
If u are lucky you can get the mirrors cleaned by a pro, if you are unlycky as i was, the blue mirror has burn and u need to replace it.

Take your projector to someone who repaire tv:s ot other electronics, they will help you. If its only the cleaning its cheap, if you need to replace a mirror its expensive.

Good luck

Sharp XR1S It projects the image on screen, use to show the correct color. last time the image was projected but in pink hues. is this an adjustment issue or is the lamp going or gone?


hi,
first of all check the tint setting on your projectors picture menu.
if not get the correct color then, your projector is a dlp projector that means it have a color wheel in side. if the synchronization of color wheel is not correct this problem can occur. there is a sensor for couting the rpm of color wheel. also have a black mark on the color wheels rotating portion. the sensor scene this black mark for making count. if there is any dust in that portion it will make difficult to the sensor making the counts. you have to remove the color wheel to clean the same.
i have added a video how to clean the color wheel . not the same projector.
ok

I replaced the lamp on a Panasonic PT-LC80U thinking this will solve the yellow appereance, but it did work, it seems that there are not blues in the image. What Can I Do to solve the problem?


here are some probable causes..
This appears to be an older model (over 5 years old) and LCD projectors turn yellow with age. It's just what they do
However, if you are projecting a computer signal or a component signal, a short in the blue signal of the cable can cast yellow hues over your image. The hue will cover the entire image as if you are viewing the image "through rose (or in this case, lemon) colored glasses" so to speak. That's an easy fix.

Harder fixes: the blue LCD panel is weaking and/or gone bad.

If you have a round yellowish spot in the middle of your screen, the diffuser has been overheated and is "burnt".

LCD projector 101, your blue device is dying inside of projector. Consider purchasing a dlp based product, they do not suffer from color decay.

Really you are blessed , most lcds last about 3-4000 hours or 4 lamp changes. good luck

This is probably the polarizing filter. It will need to be replaced. It should not cost very much to fix.
