If this projector is connected by Component Video (3 or 5 wires) instead of HDMI, the most common color related problems are caused by having one of the 3 video cables (Red, Blue or Green) with a bad connector. If everyone is a green smurf the problem is with the red cable. If everyone is a red smurf the problem is the blue cable. If the green was bad you wouldn't see anything.
Another possibility is if the green is plugged into the yellow jack instead of green jack on the projector, you could see what you are describing.
If everything checks out, take the projector to a repair facility.
If you are connected by an HDMI cable, (combined with the fact you mentioned vertical lines not horizontal) then take the projector to a repair facility.
All of this assumes that you don't just have a bad Cable Box or Blu-ray player or Home Theater Receiver. (The source)
You have something on the lens. If the lens was producing excessive heat it could be the melting around the lens itself, or it could be grease from your finger that was clear until it got hot enough to cook onto the glass. Either way, remove and clean the bulb lens (the one on the bulb you change out when the bulb blows) and then re-clean the focus lens on the front of the projector (the one you turn to focus).
If this doesn't clear it up, look for damage on the focus lens or the bulb lens.
either the light filter behind the blue lcd panel or the fly-eye lens (both inside the optical engine) have developed a burn spot from overheating. infocus doesn't sell individual parts for the optical engine, and the whole thing must be replaced. but unfortunately, it's the most expensive part of the projector, usually upwards of $2000 (and there's none in stock).
This is going to hurt..
You probably have a polarizer failing on one of the LCD panels inside.
There are 3 of these in LCD projectors, red, green, and blue. They all get the light fed into them, that light is then combined and fed through the projection lens.
You will need to contact Sanyo to find a service centre to replace it.
Looks like your projector has done it. Thats acommon trouble to ageing polirising lens, usually the blue. less blue, the green and red make up the yellowish image on the screen. The blue is bombarded with tremendous heat from the lamp and it fade and wash out. If its free, its worth replacing. Get quote for the poliriser; 2 pieces each color. Good Luck.
