Problem with a Gateway 210 DLP projector

Greetings, I recently purchased a used Gateway DLP 210 projector. Upon turning the device on, the screen displays a black haze/hue on the left side and top. When the image is flipped between front, rear, upside down and so forth the distortion remains as if there is some sort of physical impediment. I have taken the bulb out and do not see any indication of physical blockage. Have you ever seen this type of failure before?

The color wheel may not be turning. Remove the lamp and see if it will turn manually.

The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did.
1) Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.? If so, there's a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD:Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.Roll Back device driver to version prior to your driver update.
2) Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
3) Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
4) Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
5) Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
6) Use a system utility tool like Reginout for an instant fix.

How to run monitor and projector same time

You need to hold down the FN key (located in the bottom left of your keyboard) and press the F4 key (I believe)
This will toggle between your LCD screen, your projector, and then both at the same time. Be patient, sometimes it takes a while for the picture to show up.

Won't turn on

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the projector and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the remote to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your projector serviced. good luck!
