Hitachi projector model CP X260 projects yellow spot on screen
Projector started projecting a yellow image like someone took a yellow high-liter and drew a big spot on the projection screen. I thought this was a light bulb issue but after installing a new bulb the yellow image is still reflected. Does anyone know the cause/fix for this?

I am guessing that you do not get a image at start up with the Hitachi logo or any image at all. If it is not blinking red and your getting a steady green when the lamp is on it should work but somtimes the ballast in some projectors are weaker than others so it may not be able to fire up a bulb with high hours on it. Sometimes the really obvious things are overlooked like lens caps etc. You might hold your hand right infront of the lense to see if any light is being projected.
ok the onboard menu built into the projector accessable via the remote or button on the projector... go through this menu carefully and read everything you will find the way to flip the image in there :) hope this was helpful.. thnx
Hi i'm Allan!
There is some keys that you may have to press on the Laptop for it to connect to your projection, usally its FN key plus "F#" key that has the monitor logo. Different on every laptop though. What's the make and model of your laptop?
Keep me posted. Thanks!
If you have the user manual,read it first.It will show the reasons why those messages are poping up.Temperature sensors are located on the vents which gives you the problem messages. Usual problem is that the vents cooling your system is blocked preventing the air to cool your heating lamp.If you want to do service on your own(try your warranty first,opening the unit voids the warranty) you can unscrew the covers yourself.Unplug the unit first.Get a clear tape and as you remove the screws,tape the screws near the holes you got them from to prevent confusion upon rescrewing the covers back.Locate the vents filters,usually found on near exhaust fans and locate another one with a foam and screen near a smaller fan.Blow or get a smaller powered vacuum to **** dirts out.Re-install the foam and screen filter the way you removed it,be sure to observe the connector for the fans.
It's hard to tell you exactly what you need to do with so little information. If you are connected to a computer, it's possible your computer resolution is too high. I recommend nothing higher than 1024x768. These projectors simply can't support very high resolutions.
Another option is to go into your menu and look for the image settings. The one you need to adjust is called horizontal position.
By nothing do you mean it does not power on? Is your laptop on? Does it have an image on the screen?
Most of the time, this is easily fixed by holding down your function key and pressing one of the F keys. Different laptops use a different key, but you are looking for the CRT/LCD key.
So, press and hold function + CRT/LCD and you should notice a change. Be patient as it sometimes takes a moment. There are 3 settings here. One will give you a display on your laptop but not the projector. One will give you a display on the projector but not the laptop, and one will give you a display on both. So if the first time you press function + CRT/LCD you get a change but it's not what you need, try it again and cycle through until you find what you want.
Ok what's happening is that you have it set up as an extension of your desktop, you need to mirror the displays. when your projector is plugged in and it is showing only the desktop background, open "System Preferences," click "Displays," click "Positioning" and check the box that says "Mirror Displays." This should do the trick.
