Question about Epson PowerLite 5000 Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Double Image When I turn on the projector there is a distinct double image. After about 5 minutes it gets somewhat better and sometimes disapears altogether, but it will always comeback to stay after about 30-60 minutes.

    we have a red double image

  • Anonymous Mar 14, 2009

    I have the same issue..

    I have isolated it to an electronics problem rather than the polarization filters. If you put a full screen color image such as red on there are some black bars to the right... If you adjust where the image is centered using the controls on the projector these bars move.. Anyway I'd guess theres some bad caps on the board since this thing has loads of electrolytics in it.. Unfortunately I have no ESR meter to check it with.

Why does my projector display a double image?

You may have turned on a 3D (side by side) mode.

Have a look at your remote, press the 3D button (you may have to press it several times) to cycle through the virtual 3D modes.

Once you see "3D off", the double image should go away.

If you want to use 3D again, simply cycle through the modes to go back to where you want to be.

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.

Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?
