Blue tint projector

Hi Bear,

This is likely an issue with the polarizing plates, which need to be calibrated or replaced. This is not something that can be done by the average user. If your problem persists, please send us a message: Projector Repair Bulb Replacement

I have an HP XB31 Projector with a broken color wheel. Is there someplace to get a new / replacement wheel without having to buy a used or broken projector on e-bay?

You should be able to get the part directly from HP. See Here.
enter your serial number or parts code and viola.
If it's not listed on the site. Call them. They have many parts not available online over the phone.

Xb31 digital projector

There are many so called shops. But I highly recommend an authorized or certified shop. Although HP is no longer making projectors, there are still authorized and certified shops in Atlanta. We can not direct you to one at this time. Good luck.

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.

Connecting Projector to High Def Source (e.g. PS3 HDMI)

That projector supports M1-D also which is the digital side of the M1-DA... Anyway, they sell cables that are M1-D to HDMI to which you can hook directly to the PS3. They are decently priced too, less than $20. I know this thread is old, but I came across it due to an issue I am having with my xb31, broken color wheel. Trying to find parts...

Connecting Ibook G4 to Sanyo PRO xtrax projector


Most of the Apple iBook G4 series have a video out port on the left side. This is a non-standard port and would require the use of an adapter (Apple VGA Display Adapter) that is normally included with the laptop package when first bought. The VGA's output connector is the standard 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15).

On the other hand, the Sanyo PRO XTRAX projector is capable of multiple input type of connectors. They are: a) RCA type composite video in, b) DVI, c) RGB, c) RS232, d) S-Video, e) USb and f) VGA. You would then be using the latter, VGA since it matches the Apple VGA Display Adapter.

To connect the iBook to the projector, you would need a length of VGA cable that are available in most projector/computer stores. Here, here and here are examples of commercially available.

Please refer to the images below.c02d50f.jpg

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you be in need of additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
