Can't change wide mode

Hi, I have a sony VPL HS60. I changed the lamp and now can not change the wide screen mode. Pressing the Wide Screen button gives me the "not applicable" message. I have tried different sources and inputs. Without a signal the screen is filled as well if a wide screen movie is played, it is displays properly, but I do not have any control over the picture size. Any ideas or is it going in for service?

Hi 3mad

This is quite a sticky one as this could either be the lamp or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

And the bad thing is that the only way to be certain , would be to first replace the lamp and if this continues the Ballast as well.

I would suggest you to replace the lamp first , as this is never a waste , you could always keep it as a spare and 99% of the time it is the lamp will give this kind of problem.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

I connect new LG Blu -Ray On my Sony Cineza Projector.but only blue colour on the screen ,what is the problem here?


You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

Sony VPL-CS5 menu will not display


Give input signal to the projector and see that if the menu appears or not on the screen.
if menu comes on the screen then put the backgroung color to blue, instaed of black.

if nothing comes on the screen, then the LCD panels are faulty.

I also have the same problem -- the fix is to replace the optical block ( Internal lamp engine ) which is a $1,100 part. I just purchased a used projector for half the price of the part.
