Green menu screen on JVC projector when connected to PS3

The Blueray DVDs play normally, but the menu screen for the PS3 looks green. When accessing the internet through the PS3, everything also appears green. When connected to another LCD television, the same PS3 performs the way it should (without the green.)

Usually, that means that there is an issue with the cable connecting the computer to the projector. Check to make sure none of the pins are bent or broken. Aslo see if a differnt cable works correctly.

I my projector is new one used for 4 hrs, when i try to turn it on it just has a blinking green light. Please help Solve It! .

The blinking green light means the unit is either Powering On (Warming Up) or Powering Off (Cooling Down).

Powering On the Projector
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Securely connect the power cord and signal cable. When connected, the ON/STANDBY LED will turn Amber.
3. Turn on the lamp by pressing " " button either on the top of the projector or on the remote. The ON/STANDBY LED will now turn Green. The startup screen will display in approximately 10 seconds. The first time you use the projector, you can select your preferred language from quick menu after the startup screen displays.
4. Turn on and connect the source that you want to display on the screen (computer, notebook, video player, etc). The projector will detect the source automatically. If not, push menu button and go to "SETUP". Make sure that the "Source Lock" has been set to "Off". If you connect multiple sources at the same time, press the "SOURCE" button on the control panel or direct source keys on the remote control to switch between inputs.

If you are still unable to get the unit to turn on, try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. If it still ceases to work, contact Optoma here:

After replacing the bulb on my 60 by, I have red and green hosting around images.

I have the same problem. I just replaced my 9 year old lamp with a new one from a seller on Amazon (for only $88) but the ghosting and red/green misconvergence is still apparent, especially on standard definition DVDs played on a BLU-ray player through the Sanyo projector.
I found where a poster on an Australian board wrote that he was able to make adjustments using a service manual to get the red and green LCDs back in alignment. He describes it here:

the cable might be the problem. swap out with another cable. other than that, make sure that the correct input is selected and the resolution matches.

Display has a green tint to it tho it looks fine on the laptop.

A tinted image (whether green or another color) is almost always a symptom of a bad or damaged cable - or a loose cable connection. In your case, you'll likely need a new M1 to VGA cable (Part# SP-DVI-A-R).

Assuming that you've made sure that the cable connections are solid at both ends, there is a simple test to verify that this is a cable issue and not a costly projector issue. While the image is tinted green, open the menu. If the menu colors appear fine while the rest of the image is still tinted green it's the cable.

Connecting Projector to High Def Source (e.g. PS3 HDMI)

That projector supports M1-D also which is the digital side of the M1-DA... Anyway, they sell cables that are M1-D to HDMI to which you can hook directly to the PS3. They are decently priced too, less than $20. I know this thread is old, but I came across it due to an issue I am having with my xb31, broken color wheel. Trying to find parts...
