Vpl-hs60 projector diagonal is off

Hey! i absolutely love my hs60 projector, but upon moving and setting it up in my new apartment, i've noticed that one side of the picture is definitely a bit longer than the other. that is, the right side projects as both lower and higher than the other side. i'm projecting from the left side of the room, at about 12 ft away - is this purely a function of the angle of projection, or is there some way i can compensate for this?? i've tried the hshift/vshift and keystone correction but to no avail. any help would be appreciated. cheers!

I also have this same problem with my HS51A... With nothing on the screen you can see that the panel is physically shifted.

I connect new LG Blu -Ray On my Sony Cineza Projector.but only blue colour on the screen ,what is the problem here?

You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

Reset option killed the yellow warning to replace the bulb, but didn't reset's still showing 4,400. I bought new replacement lamp from, but it's showing dark. Is it the lamp or...

The projector's lamp cover might not be securly on or you might need a new one, or the projector has blown a fuse that can be replaced other wise it could be your projector but be sure to contact your sony dealer first.

VPL-HS60 Scene Dimming

Hi 3mad

This is quite a sticky one as this could either be the lamp or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

And the bad thing is that the only way to be certain , would be to first replace the lamp and if this continues the Ballast as well.

I would suggest you to replace the lamp first , as this is never a waste , you could always keep it as a spare and 99% of the time it is the lamp will give this kind of problem.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

To reset the lamp timer:
1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual).
2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER.
3) Timer should now read '0'.

Problems using HDMI

I've had a problem with the HDMI connector, had it replaced twice while my VPL-HS60 was under warranty. This connector seems very fragile, the first time I was not getting any signal from HDMI, so the repair shop ordered a new connector and replaced it, a couple of days after the it was not working again and found that they had to solder it back on the board. If you're not getting a signal from HDMI anymore that could be your problem.
