Green spot in middle of image as though a spot light was shinning on the screen. I've replaced the lamp

I have dual projectors in a small auditorium. The image on one of the projectors has a green circle in the middle as if someone is shining a spot light on the screen. I have replaced the lamp but the spot is still there.

SOURCE: Won't turn on, only flashes red light

Probably the filter is blocked. Unplug the power lead at the back and leave for about 30 seconds. Plug back in and it should work. The first opportunity you get, buy some compressed air and give it a good clean.

SOURCE: images has a blue color across the center

Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

SOURCE: Wonderwall projector has black spot in middle of screen

My guess is that you have the projector flat on something? I did that and got the spot right away. The directions says NOT to lay flat, you must use the arm/handle so it will not overheat. Next time you get the spot pick the projector up and it should go away in about 10 seconds. It is overheating. Use the arm/handle, if you need it to sit level place a wii game or something similar size in the back to level it out.

I have sanyo projector model PDG-DSU20E. Few white spots appeared on the right side of the screen. Gradually the spots has filled the right side about 1 feet is width till bottom of the screen. Now few...


1,white spots appeared on screen,means the DMD is broken,you need a new DMD.
2,the projector running off after only a few minutes,means the Inductor (Sensing element),near the Color Wheel. Use a cotton swab moistened with alcohol to wipe the Inductor.

Have a good day!

Projecting in green.


lamp may be on it's way out. if the mercury vapor burns at a different temperature than it's designed to, you will get a different color. also check the lamp for bulges, black spots or fogging. if it has any of those, replace it. if the lamp is ok, replace the ballast.

I have an Mitsubishi X490U Multimedia Projector - it hangs inverted in our church auditorium. The image on the screen looks okay with bright images projected, but dark images appear to look green...


This unit needs a new Optical block, most likely more than a new projector

check out projectorsuperstore.com for a replacement

by the way, your $10,000 projector only has 2600 lumens, a new/refurbished unit will have 4000 lumens for less than 25% of the cost of your unit
