Question about NEC MT1060 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Yellow area Hi, My MT1060 projetor has developed a static yellow cloud in the bottom centre of the screen ( similar to purity error on a CRT) which is approximately 1/3 of the size of the screen. The image behind the cloud is O.K and all colours in that area seem to be O.K. Many thanks Rich

Yellow area on display about 2 ft. diameter. have replaced lamp and cleaned front lens. suggestions????

Sad to say many of these Sony projectors are now developing faults in the LCD panels. In your case, it's a problem with the blue one.

Replacement units are available, but they are very expensive and a nightmare to install. Given the fall in price of projectors, and the ready availability of high brightness LED lamped units now, your wisest move might be a replacement projector.

Alternatively, you could take it to your nearest authorized Sony service centre for a quotation, but you'd best be sitting down when you get the price. {:o(

Hi Genaro,

Sounds like an issue with the HDMI HDCP content protection. I do not think it will be possible to connect using a DVI to HDMI cable.

Blue area

Possible failure of the LCD panel or there is fault in the board. Unless this is checked in detail a specific component or board should not be replaced. Please take estimate after consensus.

The light shines yellow on the screen. Is it the lamp that's on its way out, or is it just a setting?

If the yellow area is mainly in the centre and not a well defined spot, then it's most likely the blue polariser plate that has been overheated by the white light over much use.

I work in a school and one of the projectors has a yellow area in the centre of the projection. The lamp has been replaced ?

Your Blue LCD Light valve is burned or has dust on it which blocks the blue color.

With RGB, the absense of blue (Red + Green) is yellow.

If you're lucky a simply cleaning at the light valves will solve your problem. Otherwise your looking $$ for a new LCD valve.

Sharp notevision xgnv6xu oval yellow spot

I have a similar issue with yellow pattern on the left and top right of my screen. Took it apart and found the blue lcd had damage that matched the yellow area that was projected. I thought it was the lens but it was the blue lcd .It has gone bad and no replacement. Are you interested in selling the bulb or the whole projector? I have since purchased another projector and am keeping the bad one for spare parts. Hope this helps..Ben

Hi SmartMex

This in not a lamp problem , but rather a Mainboard issue.

You will have to take it to a Service Centre to either be repaired or replaced.

Hi there

Is it a LCD or DLP ?

First try using a different cable. If the problem stil occurs this might be a faulty Mainboard - which would need either repair or replacement.

Does the discolouration show in the startup screen as well ?
