SOURCE: Screen Cut off

This sometimes happen when different PC are used on the Projector - sort of confuses it sometimes.

Press the Auto button and it should be ok.

If it still occurs after pressing the Auto button - then your Mainbaord might be faulty.

Why projector takes time whe it is started

Depends entirely on what you mean by "takes time". These projectors require a few minutes to reach full brightness, and many models even activate an LCD shutter to black out the image until the lamp has reached reasonable brightness.

If you mean it takes several minutes to produce any picture at all, it may just be time to replace the lamp, as it may not be striking (starting the lamp) correctly due to a fault in the lamp starter circuit or the lamp itself. In the absence of a detailed fault description, my best guess is that it's most probably a tired lamp :o)

Images has a blue color across the center

Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

Image is upside down

Hit the menu/select button to bring up the menu either on the projector or on the projector remote then go down until advanced is highlighted then press the menu/select button then move down until Ceiling Project is highlighted and hit the menu/select button again to get the image right side up. If you have the manual for the projector this information can be found on page 34.

Can't get computer images to project

Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.

HC 1500 skewed image issue

Hi there

I've worked on a few Mitsubishi's in my lifetime and one of their most common problems is the DMD Board that goes faulty and this makes the image go all pear shaped.

If you've only had the unit for 3 months now it should still be under warranty and the warranty covers these kind of repairs.

Hope this helps you !
