Blue "Shadow" to Left of White Objects

When projecting a dark image, everything looks normal but when white appears on the screen, there is a blue shadow to the left of the object. We just got the projector back from repair and initially it was fine. After about an hour of watching a movie, the shadow appeared. Any suggestions?

There is a blue and yellow shadow on a picture i can not achieve the white balance

the issue described is cause by a bad blue lcd panel. if you use a black/dark image, it will be quite evident. unfortunately you'll need to replace the whole prism block assembly (all 3 LCD's) to fix the problem.

I have a VT465 and the projection back ground is yellow and I can't get it to be white

If you are talking about the actual image that is coming from a laptop being yellow instead of white, then this is caused usually by a bad signal cable running between the computer and the projector.
To be more specific: All colours in a projector get made up in some way between red, green and blue. White is all of these colours at maximum, yellow is made by red and green at maximum but no blue. If your image is Yellow when it should be white, then the blue signal information is not reaching the projector. This can also happen within the projector or computer itself but is less likely. If your using a VGA cable (15 pin cable) then blue is run through pins 3 & 7 (positive and negative respectively), see if your cable is either missing these pins on either end or if they are bent, although it's more than likely within the cable itself. You can test this theory easily by trying to put something blue on screen, if the blue signal isn't getting through then it'll appear black.
If changing the cable doesn't solve the problem try testing the computer by trying to use a different one, and test the projector by plugging in a monitor or another projector.

If you are getting a yellow screen without sending signal and just trying to get the "no signal" or "no input" screen white, then this won't be the case.

Hi there, my dell projector 1800mp is not projecting an image on screen and it only black lines across. what should I do to fix it?.

After turning on the projector, press "+" and "-" buttons on the control panel

simultaneously for 3 seconds and release the buttons when screen goes blank.

2 Press "+" and "-" buttons again to exit the diagnostic mode.

3While in Self-diagnostic mode, the screen will run a seven-color-cycle test as


Red--> Green--> Blue--> White--> Watchet Blue--> Dark Green--> Yellow.

Ensure that the colors of the test pattern are correct. Contact Dell if the colors are
not displayed correctly.

I,ve got a red spot in the screen i replaced the bulp but stil have the problem

it is most likely a burned polarizing filter. There is a polarizing filter on the blue light channel and another on the red channel. When black, or other dark colours are displayed, the red polarizing filter is supposed to block ALL of the red light being projecter. If the filter is burned, some light slips through and creates a red tinge on the projected image. If the red tinge only appears on dark images, but is absent when the images is completely white, a damaged filter is likely the problem.

Seems its hard to buy them. Best bet is probably buying a broken projector from ebay and stealing the filters out of it.

Optoma HD72 displays white circles when the picture is dark

Have your projector professionally cleaned. It is dust in the inside optics. You should not attempt unless you are very skilled. if you are going to do this yourself have a lot of compressed air on hand.
