Viewsonic PJ800 Blue Shadows

Just got a Viewsonic PJ800 Projector (used and repaired) and it was working fine the first night, but the second night a blue bar appeared on the right hand side of the screen. The blue then turned into a shadow type figure on the text and some of the black images appear blue in spots.

The bulb has about 900 hours on it, so it should be fine for a while yet.

I dont know what is causing this problem, but if anyone has a solution, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

SOURCE: Viewsonic PJ556d shuts down after 30-60 seconds

My solution sounds dumb, I had the same issue. Took the lamp cover off the bottom. The screws were loose holding in the lamp. Maybe they heat and expand and eventually work their way out and the lamp doesn't make good contact. Just tightened mine up, the unit would power off after 45 minutes prior. Been on now for 5 hours, no trouble.

Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
Find a link below , which gives a review of the Viewsonic PJ 501.

Problem with a Viewsonic pj800 LCD projector. The image looks like it's not aligned properly. Like it's a double image and the color is all distorted. I imagine there is something wrong with the...


The image is made up of three polarisers, one tends to fail causing a problem with the image. On average it may cost £300 per polariser to be fixed. As you know these days you can get a projector for that price as everyone now wants HD and 3D. I recently bought 7x NEC NP115 for just over £200 each. Very good spec, auto power up (Which was important for what I needed)

hope that helps

Viewsonic pj800


I had the same problem with a few pj800's that I have worked on. It turns out that with old age and constant hot and cold temperature exposure the pixels in lcd panels will become shorted or actually die out. When current is applied there is no pixel activity therefore causing distorted images and lines that appear to drop out or down in the picture. Replacement of all 3 lcd assemblies is needed to correct problem. And being such an old projector the price of the parts would exceed the cost of a new bulb. I reccomend trying to find a used one for parts working or not 99% of the time the lcds are usually fine. Or check out ebay for some used projectors you can find up to date used ones with three times better picture quality than the pj800 for under $300.00 shipped. Good luck!
