Re: Purple pixels in my DP6810 MM projector

I have three of these units and all experienced the same problem and repair. I cleaned not only the lcds but all the glass panels and lenses near the lcds. You can power up the unit, select test screen, then carefully unplug and remove the top cover. With it on you can use a q-tip and CAREFULLYA AND DELICATELY clean the lenses and lcd screens. Some of them have a tight clearence so youll need to cut down your q tips to fit in there. It takes be about an hour per projector but i am able to remove the offending dust and FIX the purple splotches. I forget what color it is but its the center mounted lcd that when dirty makes the purple ****. YOU WOULD BE AMAZED AT ALL THE **** THAT GETS STUCK IN THERE!

My InFocus IN2102EP projector is recently projecting a small white spot. If it was a PC, I'd say that a pixel was out. I've try blowing compressed air in various places, and have removed and replaced the...

Sounds like the DMD chip is on it's way out.
Check if the intermittent problem is related to the external air temperature. Try blowing cold air around the unit with a personal fan to see if it does the same thing.
Check if the air vents and filter is clean

My proxima dp6155 projector after any time looks with a vertical purple line in the right side, whats the problem

reset the settings to factory default. there may be a resolution issue. make sure it matches the source. if the line is straight and goes right along the pixel line, you may have an lcd issue. if it's blurred, it could be a bad polarizer.

Got a purple stripe from the lower edge of the screen center to center. gradient to the middle of screen. like 100 lines wide. any hints THANKS michi m

if it's sharp edged and inline with the pixels, you have a bad green lcd panel. if it's fuzzy and random, you have a burnt light filter. either way, it's an optical engine issue. you can try to go into the case, remove the ribbon cable for the green lcd (unlock the ribbon clip first) and reinsert it and lock it down. if that doesn't work, you'll have to replace it.

Ghost image in purple to the left of the image

resolution is off. reset the settings to factory default through the menu. make sure the resolution matches. the phase adjust can be changed as well. swap out the cable. worse comes to worse, you has a misaligned lcd panel. you'll need to send it in for repair.

The color is not the same as it was when we bought it. Does the bulb need to be replaced?

reset the settings to factory default ans check the lamp hours. if it's close to 2000, replace the lamp. otherwise, it just may be dirty. blow it out with canned air. if it's still a problem, replace the colorwheel.

no, it is the light filter (polarizer). it is caused by excessive heat and dust buildup. blow out projector with canned air to prevent further discoloration, but the filter needs replacing.

After 20 minutes of use picture shuts down. (Sharp XR-10X)

use canned air and blow every bit of dust out of every vent and hole. if you want to, you can remove the top (6 screws on the bottom, and the 2 top screws on the back) and blow dust out that way. i could also be a power supply problem. from excessive heat, the capacitors on the ps dry up and don't work as they should, causing shutdown.

when i got a new lamp today the problem is not as intense anymore. when i looked at the lamp i was able to see some dirt that had been burned into the glas in front of the bulb. it had approximately the same color. since i just bought a bulb and installed it into the case of the first lamp, which doesnt have that color burned into the glas, the problem is way smaller than before.

im not sure if thats the reason - but might be a solution...
