Question about HP Compaq iPAQ MP4800 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Greenish display My MP4800 has a greenish tint to the display no matter what is being projected. I tried all the different connections, S-video, DMI to VGA, VGA to VGA and tried to different VGA cables. I also went into the Color options & tried to tweak those at no success. The lamp has been replaced as well. I'm out of options. Can you help?

Re: Greenish display

Had the same problem. Opened the cover and find out that when I press the part above the lump the display become normal. Some loosed connector was my first thought. But, after a while looking and pressing around found out that the cover of the lamp was not placed properly and one corner side of the lamp cover was displaced. Opened it, returned it back to fit properly and the green display is gone. Hope that will not appear again and that is the same "problem" with yours.

I have an infocus projector model Lp70+ and when it projects it has a greenish tint and is not completely in focus. Is there anything I can do to fix that?

the greenish tint is likely the light tunnel being out of adjustment or partially collasped. The image being out of focus is likely the misalignment of the focus tube to the base of the focus tube that screws into the front of the light engine. A technician will have to fix either problem.

Sony SXRD has a greenish tint on everything.

I believe it is called the "light engine" is going bad. The Sony SXRD is NOTORIOUS for this going bad. So much so that there was a class action lawsuit that extended the warranty. My 50" SXRD went bad after 12 months. Because of the class action lawsuit, it was basically fixed for free.

Greenish tint

Not sure if this is the solution, but I believe the color polarizer filters have been burned. I have a yellow haze circle on mine and I'm pretty sure that's the problem. In my case the blue filter is burned, leaving the red and green stronger yeilding a yellow blur.

Tinted image

If you are plugging in a monitor cable, it is most likely a cable issue. I would try another cable and make sure the cable is seated firmly into the projector. If that doesn't help, check the port on the projector for bent or missing pins because it seems that not all of the video information is reaching the unit.
