Dark yellow line on right hand side of screen


It appears that others have had the same problem as myself. I was wondering if there was a repair manual that I could download to assit me in removing the housing and getting to those little mirrors that may have to be glued. I really don't want to replace the bulb whereas there's only a few hundred hours on it. Also, could you reply to me at my email.

Thanks very much

This problem is not the lamp!!
However you are correct in your diagnosis of the failed light pipe/tunnel. There are post's on the internet with instructions how to repair the light pipe. To actually be successful in your effort to do this yourself you need to be familiar and comfortable with delicate optics and have good common sense and electro-mechanical skills.
If you actually need instructions you should probably just take it to a service center as it's easy to cause collateral damage just getting to it.

I have a DP6500X Proxima LCD projector. I replaced the projector lamp and reset the projector, but it still flashes this rectangular vertical line down the right side. It is also making a high pitch...

It looks like the Light Pipe (LP) is collapsed. You can fix it if you have steady hands & expertise to do that. You can find it next to colour wheel which are four small mirrors attached to each other with a high temperature glue. It is really pain-staking. But if you go to service centre, they will change the whole optical engine & not the LP which will cost you dear.

KDS-R50XBR1 has a yellow hue in the lower right hand corner of the screem

Hi JimmyDeps

If there is a yellow hue I would guess that this a LCD TV right ?

Which means that the blue LCD has gone and will have to be replaced.

Infocus 70+

We have had similar issue w/ multiple LP70+ projectors. The units get to be 1-2 years old and suddenly the right vertical edge of the display is distorted. There is usually a shadowed vertical bar that clouds about 3-5% of the horizontal space from the right edge.
What's the cause?

Blue on one side of the screen.

as a first step, check for dust and dirt in the optics of the unit, sometimes they can cause these kinds of problems. if not, Look at the filters attached to the blue LCD panel. If I remember correctly it has a dark "yellow" mirrored surface. I have had one go bad and give the same symptoms. It looked like it may have had an optical flaw that "captured" the intense light rather than passing it thru it. As time passed it got worse. The replacement filter fixed it.
