Color Red does not Display

The color red displays as "black" and there does not appear to be a way to adjust either the color or tint. Both color and tint are grayed out in the "display" menu. Other colors do not appear crisp while they are adequate. The lamp shows 185 hours on it but the projector was serviced about 18 months ago and I am not clear if the "lamp hours used" was reset at that time. My estimate is that there may be ~1200 hrs on the lamp if it is the original lamp. I had to purchase a lamp at $400 - $500 unless there is a high probability that the lamp is the issue. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Tom Moser

The image color on projection is not the same as shown in laptop. There's is no red color.

It could be a broken connection in the computer lead for the red signal, or a fault on the projector that the red panel doesn't work any more.

To diagnose, bring up the projector's on screen display. If there's white in the menus then the problem is the cable. Replace it with a new one. If the menus are affected too then it's a projector problem. This requires the attention of a service engionner.

Everything is yellow! It was working fine a week ago but when I went to do a presentation yestereday everything is yellow??? I tried adjusting the colors and I tried a second computer but yellow


what this indicate from the color display on the system mean that the display sensor (lens)in getting weak it need servicing or a replacement, to to this servicing you will have to unscrew (open) from the stroll then clean up the lens with little spirit solution on the surface with care allow the solution to dry up it self then reset the programming on it please while doing this you will have to be very careful with the wire connection around ,but if this fail then you will have to get a replacement on it

This are recommended fix is to replace the lens. You can generally find replacement parts at these websites:

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare.

Replacing a lens is not a difficult repair and can be accomplished by the average do-it-your self offer. If you decide to order the part and wish to repair this on your own

thank you and thanks for you sing fixya.

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.
