This usually means that there is some contamination in the light path. Since many of the mirrors and lenses must be carefully aligned, it is not recommended to have the homeowner dis-assemble +/or clean these. This unit should be sent in for serive, requesting a complete clean and alighment. The unit will be cleaned, any filters changed and the convergence checked.

Unfortunately dim image is normally due to a defective lamp assembly. I'd recommend removing the lamp and inspecting its condition. You'll notice black corrosion build up or a bubble is starting to form around the filament of the bulb if it is what's causing the dim image.

Yes, as bulbs age they will begin losing brightness. Most projectors have a bulb life hour clock, that measures the number of hours a bulb has been used. Usually you can pull that up within the menu of the projector. Also that particular model has what is called "Eco-Mode" and when engaged dims the bulb by 25% to cut down on power consumption.

Typical life for a lamp in that projector is:

3000 hours on Normal mode
6000 hours on Eco mode

You can expect a brightness loss of 50% when you are approaching end of a lamps life.

Dull image on projector


This is an old projector which was released in May 2005. Projector image degrades over time as the lamp dims, and other internal factors affect brightness. The original rating is 1600 lumens which is not bright compared to a modern projector.

You can check to status which may give you lamp information by pressing ENTER on remote or projector and going to HELP.

You may find that replacing the lamp helps, however older lamps are expensive and could replace the whole projector with new one of higher specification, complete with 3 year warranty if you spend double as much. A new lamp will not restore a projector to its new state either. Here's a link to the lamp (for the UK), it's over £200 + VAT + delivery, and that's not even for a genuien HP lamp

http://www.every-projector-lamp.co.uk/projector-lamps.php?&brand=HEWLETT+PACKARD&model=VP6310

As I say, you can get projectors with a better spec for as little as £372 + vat + delivery. This one is similar to yours, in that it is a 4x3 business projector. It has an XGA resolution. (Yours is VGA). It is 2000 lumen brightness and it has a 3 year warranty.

Hello,

I think this is a lamp issue. Even though your lamp might have an advertised time of 3000 hrs from Dell, it can fail and dim a lot earlier than that. Often within 1000 hrs a projector lamp's brightness can be reduced by up to 40%. Projector lamps brightness and lamp life varies according to how you use your projector and the environment it is in. Our company sells projector lamps and has created a YouTube video to help people get the most out of their projector lamps. You can see the video below. If you decide to buy a new lamp we have the lamp you need in stock at Projector Lamp Experts.

Hope this helps..

Image is dim. How do I adjust brightness


You can adjust the brightness through the user menu, under the picture option. You might want to look at your bulb. It might be time to replace the lamp.

There could be several reasons for this problem.
1. New lamp needed.
2. New lamp did not fix? Could be mirror tunnel behind the color wheel than can collapse causing "dim" light source or dark lines.
3. All items "greyed" out caused when the unit does not sense a source input, ie computer or tv tuner. After connecting to a source, you should be able to go and adjust contrast and/or brightness settings
