Mitsubishi XL8U LCD Projector ALL BLUE screen after lightning

I have a Mitsubishi XL8U projector that went all blue when booted after lightning struck behind our home. The strike took out several computer items, laptop and this projector. Is there a simple fix ? Worth sending to a repair shop? The bulb is still working just all blue screen.

Hi terry2421

No this is not the bulb. You will have to get the Mainboard repaired at a service provider. Losing signal and a discolouration showing up is a clear indication of a faulty Mainboard.

Get a quote first , because some service providers overcharge on these sort of repairs. The most you should pay is $150.

Yellowish colorization on center of displays is not a prizm issue. It is generally a need of cleaning factor. Even with the filters clean, the LCD's can and acquire heavy dust build up on the panels. This is not limited only to the LCD's it also applies to the polarizers and spectrum filters. Your unit most likely requires deep lens and panel cleaning. This is done by trained professionals, as they can be permanently damaged if the proper tools are not used.

you won't find schematics for them. infocus had their boards made by someone else who now no longer makes boards. it's usually the caps drying out that causes power problems.

Why will my mitsubishi lvp x300 projector only project a blue screen when I turn it on?


Blue is probably the default "no signal" screen. It means that the projector is getting no signal.

The problem is most likely a warped plastic housing around the color wheel. When the wheel is forced to stop, the projector will go to standby and the lights indicate a problem.

Why is the Status Light on my Mitsubishi XL8U flashing red? My projector is still working but the status light flashes red.


With out knowing the state of the power LED, my best guess is the Status light is solid red and telling you to purchase a replacement lamp before the current one dies. Attached is a chart that will show you the errors possible depending on the LED statuses:

Depending on what it is if it looke like a scorch mark the it is not the Optical Engine (prism) it is more likely to be the polerising filter most are quite esly changed and would cost about £15 ($30) for parts and about twice that to get them fitted at a service center, if it is pixel dots then it is a LCD replacement and not worth doing.
