It sounds like the colour-filter wheel in the projector is giving problems.

Are you saying that the projection is solid blue? Is it similar to, say, the desktop on the laptop screen? Try moving your mouse off to the right side of the laptop. Did it show up on projector? Exciting! Try dragging stuff over. Damn, this is sweet.

I have a Sanyo projector that shows a completely blue image - I can see the computer image but it is completely blue - Whet I press the menu button the normal colours come up for the menu


it sounds like the wire you are using to connect your PC to projector is bad

if color is normal when menu comes up then it is not projector unless the input for your PC is bad

i would try new cable first since that would be cheapest

do other sources in other inputs work???

I hv Sanyo PLC-SU07N Projector - the image is blue


I have a possible solution however it may not be THE solution your after, you'll probably be able to tell very quickly if it isn't, this will only apply if you are using either a component video signal or a PC/laptop signal to send to the projector.

If you are using a laptop or desktop to hook up your projector, I would try first of all double checking that it's correctly plugged in, and if you still have no luck try a different cable.
It's likely to be the cable because when the signal goes down the cable it's split into 5 different signals. 3 of these are the colour information for Red, Green and Blue. Depending on what you mean by 'image is blue', it could mean that your either not getting the information for Red, or your not getting the information for Red AND Green. If you want to test this, open up microsoft paint while connected to the projector and create 3 boxes, then fill 1 completely red, 1 completely green and one completely blue. If you are missing the information to any of these colours then that colour will appear black on the projector screen.

In component video the signal is split down 3 cables (rather than 5) and 2 are colours (rather than 3)... Red and Blue. Check that the cable running red (Usually labelled Pr on the DVD and projector) is completely plugged in (some of these are really tight, but it's important that it goes all the way) and also that you have plugged into the correct slot, for instance that you have plugged into Pr and not the right Audio channel, both of which are coloured red.

If you are still not having any luck then I would suggest using a computer monitor or a television (depending on what type of signal your sending it) to test the projector. Plug it in instead of the projector and if it works then the issue lies with the projector and I have at least narrowed it down for you.

Hope this has been helpful.

Can't answer for the menu issues, but I can garuntee this is not a problem with brightness, contrast or sharpness, and very unlikely that you'll find a solution in the menu. What is likely is that the VGA wasn't plugged in properly initially. When the signal is going down the VGA it's broken up into 5 seperate signals, Red, Green, Blue and 2 sync signals. What is likely is that the green and blue pins havn't properly made contact either inside the projector or inside the laptop. This would also explain why it worked when you tried later because it made the connection properly. I would suggest trying again with the same laptop, if it does it again, try another PC without moving the projector or the VGA connector that's plugged into the projector. This will atleast narrow down your problem, but it doesn't sound like a problem with the projector to me. Also try plugging the laptop that wasn't working properly into a monitor (this will test the laptop)

You need the correct lead.
You need a vga lead to an rgb lead.
have a look at pins and connector types on computer and projector.
maybe somewhere like radio shack will sell correct lead.

Giving message on laptop that says, "projection mode disabled"


try to use a full wired VGA cable, so the laptop can recognize the external display/ projector by the ID pins.
