NEC MT800 Projector with Vertical Lines in picture

Hi, My GF's NEC Multisync MT800 yesterday has started to show vertical lines across the whole picture. Now they change colour depending on the content of the picture but mainly appear to be red and green. I am wondering if it is something to do with the colour "panels" starting to fail. Any adivice on what it might be and a possible way forward would be great. Thanks.

    I have had my NEC mt830+ projector for about a month. Got it on Ebay. it was fine for the first few weeks. Now when I run it over an hour (sometimes it will go longer) it starts to get very annoying vertical lines. It really distorts the picture. If anyone can help that would be great.

    bought this off of ebay a few weeks ago and just the last few days I have had a problem of 3-4 yellow, blue, purple lines on the right side of the screen. Is this a problem with the lamp? I only have 700 hours on the lamp

    WE ARE ALL SUCKERS. I BOUGHT THIS PROJECTOR OF EBAY AND GUESS WHAT, SAME LINES. I BELIVE THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS DON'T BUT EXPENSIVE ELECTONICS ON EBAY.

    I GOT MINE ON EBAY TOO, AND GOT THE SAME LINES. I HAVE NOTICED IT ALSO DOES IT DURING START-UP AND FADES AFTER ABOUT 40sec. MY BULB USAGE SHOWS 40 HRS WHICH IS B.S. THE BULB HAS A BURN MARK ON IT SO I THINK MAYBE THE PROBLEM IS RELATED TO THE BULB. ALSO THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE GONE FOR THE FIRST HOUR OR SO EVERY MORNING. THE ONLY VARIABLE I CAN THINK OF IS TEMP. MY FILTER IS CLEAN AND SO IS THE INSIDE OF THE PROJECTOR. ANYWAY I DON'T HAVE THE BALLS TO THROW ANOTHER COUPLE HUNDRED BUCKS DOWN ON A BULB SO TO HELL WITH THIS P.O.S. I THINK THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS DO NOT BUY EXPENSIVE ELECTRONICS ON EBAY.

The ghosting problem is a combination of both the lcds and driver boards in which case neither need to be truely replaced.. They use a specific voltage to transmit data to the lcds.. Each lcd is different and the driver board is programmed by the factory for the EE v.com setting. Unfortunatly with nec, they do not offer a service mode to go in and adjust the ee settings to correct the electrical convergance. So the only way to fix the problem is to replace the lcd with a newer one who wasnt worn out from long term heat.

The problem is the LCD driver board. It is not something that can be fixed without a replacement board.

Multiple reddish pink vertical lines going from


Hi

We can check if the problem is on the hardware(projector) itself or if from source(device connected to projector) try to turn on projector without connecting any other devices to it. If you can still see the pink line- try to remove bulb and reinstall it. If all fails and pink line still visible, there is a problem with projector. If no line is present- check settings and change input signals.

Hope this helps

Projector vertical running lines


Hi there

This is definatelly a interference from a power cable. If any of your signal cables in the ceiling is closer that 5cm to one of those , you will get interference.

The Company that did the installation should know this and I would suggest you call them and tell them that they should sort it out. They should either move the cables or insulate them by means of conduit.

Mt800 projector


First I would suggest cleaning the filter on the bottom of the unit where the fan inlet is. Over heating can cause many issues with the video controller in the projector, also shortens the life span of the bulb, always let the unit cool down when turning it off (let the fan run when you turn the power of by top button, never unplug and use the power switch on back. until the fan shuts off.)
