Projects in black and white

I turned on my projector and it will only project in black and white no colour. The lamp indicator advises to change the bulb. Is this to do with the bulb or another problem.

It's probably the color-wheel problem. Maybe the color-wheel stucked because of dust and/or color-wheel sensor is covered with dust.

The simple way to check this, without reinstalling drivers or so, you just tap menu button on remote. If you will see only black-white user interface it is definitly color-wheel.

Good luck.

It's not your bulb.

When bulbs get older you will notice the picture is not as bright as it used to be. Eventually the bulb will go completely (no picture) and you will have to replace it.

What it is your projector connected to as a source? Try connecting a different source and see if it is still black and white. If you're using a computer, try reinstalling the driver.

Go into the menu for the projector and reset it back to factory defaults. If none of these suggestions work you may have to contact the manufacturer to see about having it serviced.

Lg 56dc1dab dlp projection tv is now in black and white? The lamp indicator has been on for a while. Is the colour gone due to further damage or can we replace the lamp and fix the colour?


lamp going out should not cause color to go out. I would check all connecting cables at both ends to be sure that is not the color issue.
Be sure you did not accidentally turn color down in trying to adjust video controls due to weak lamp. Then replace the lamp.

If all connections have been checked and the lamp is confirmed working, then I'd agree with the tech. Sorry for the bad news, especially since I know it's not a cheap repair :(

After changing the bulb image will not come on and solid orange light appears


Other then POWER BUTTON light there are three lights more
1. lamp indicator
2. temperature indicator
3. computer input
witch one light is flashing RED or illuminated RED with POWER BUTTON orange light.
If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself

Projecting in green.


lamp may be on it's way out. if the mercury vapor burns at a different temperature than it's designed to, you will get a different color. also check the lamp for bulges, black spots or fogging. if it has any of those, replace it. if the lamp is ok, replace the ballast.
