Question about Acer PD725P DLP Projector
SOURCE: it not bringing out color.it
I will need some clarification as to the model number of your projector to best help you but in general if you have a DLP type projector & suddenly lose all color to your image then the color wheel has failed by burning out or breaking. The color wheel sits directly in front of the projection lamp & if you take your lamp out you can use a flashlight & point it in towards the spot where the light comes out of the lamp & look at the color wheel. The color wheel has 4 to 6 different color pieces called segments like yellow, red, blue & a clear segment. You will be able to see if the color wheel is broken.
If it is you need to have the unit serviced. If you're handy you may be able to order a new color wheel. They are usually around $100. There can be other causes as well but the wheel is the first place to investigate. Please let me know if this was helpful.
Thanks & good luck,

After turning on the projector, press "+" and "-" buttons on the control panel
simultaneously for 3 seconds and release the buttons when screen goes blank.
2 Press "+" and "-" buttons again to exit the diagnostic mode.
3While in Self-diagnostic mode, the screen will run a seven-color-cycle test as
Red--> Green--> Blue--> White--> Watchet Blue--> Dark Green--> Yellow.
Ensure that the colors of the test pattern are correct. Contact Dell if the colors are
not displayed correctly.
