Question about Epson PowerLite 5000 Multimedia Projector

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.

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.

Problem with a Viewsonic pj800 LCD projector. The image looks like it's not aligned properly. Like it's a double image and the color is all distorted. I imagine there is something wrong with the...

The image is made up of three polarisers, one tends to fail causing a problem with the image. On average it may cost £300 per polariser to be fixed. As you know these days you can get a projector for that price as everyone now wants HD and 3D. I recently bought 7x NEC NP115 for just over £200 each. Very good spec, auto power up (Which was important for what I needed)

hope that helps

Dull image on projector

This is an old projector which was released in May 2005. Projector image degrades over time as the lamp dims, and other internal factors affect brightness. The original rating is 1600 lumens which is not bright compared to a modern projector.

You can check to status which may give you lamp information by pressing ENTER on remote or projector and going to HELP.

You may find that replacing the lamp helps, however older lamps are expensive and could replace the whole projector with new one of higher specification, complete with 3 year warranty if you spend double as much. A new lamp will not restore a projector to its new state either. Here's a link to the lamp (for the UK), it's over £200 + VAT + delivery, and that's not even for a genuien HP lamp

As I say, you can get projectors with a better spec for as little as £372 + vat + delivery. This one is similar to yours, in that it is a 4x3 business projector. It has an XGA resolution. (Yours is VGA). It is 2000 lumen brightness and it has a 3 year warranty.

Hope this helps...

Double image at screen

It was not a double screen, but more of a separation of the colors. For example, if it said Display on the screen it would say DDiissppllaayy. The first of each letter would be one color and the second would be another color.

Double image or shadow image

We recently had the same problem with our church projector and we too had just changed the lamp. I read somewhere while searching for an answer that if the cable input is loose it will cause double vision of the text. Sure enough, the cable was loose and after tightening the text cleared up immediatly.
