Question about Mitsubishi ColorView XL30U Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Yellow area in the projected image

Our ceiling mounted XL30U is displaying a yellow area in the projected image that covers about 20% of the left top corner of the screen. It is like someone painted the lens of the unit with yellow spray paint. Is it worth repairing or is it too major? Thanks for the help.

Hello Media Man,

Looks like your projector has done it. Thats acommon trouble to ageing polirising lens, usually the blue. less blue, the green and red make up the yellowish image on the screen. The blue is bombarded with tremendous heat from the lamp and it fade and wash out. If its free, its worth replacing. Get quote for the poliriser; 2 pieces each color.
Good Luck.

My image is upside down after I mounted my projector to the ceiling

There are projection mode settings which will allow you to adjust the orientation of the image. Adjusting this setting will rotate the image so that it is not displayed upside down when attaching the projector to the ceiling.

To activate this setting:

  1. Press the Menu button on the projector.
  2. Using the Arrow buttons, select the Image icon on the left side.
  3. On the Image screen under the Projection label, select the icon that represents ceiling mounted projection. Note: You may see both front and rear ceiling mounted projection modes. You may choose which ever best suits your needs.
  4. Press Menu on the projector controls to exit the settings menu.

Epson projector has yellow circle in middle of image, as if the lamp has caused something (lens maybe) to become yellow.

Probably had too high wattage bulb and basically, it burned the lens cover. Remove the old lens and "project" to see if the yellow circle is projected. Iif so, purchase a new lens cover.

Sony model kdf-e42a10 one-third of both right and left sides of screen is light yellow shade. middle one-third of screen is good.

The filter is probably covered with dust at the sides. In an LCD projection tv the light has to pass through the filter(prism) before it displays on the screen. If its dirty then you will have a darker than usual image. Getting it cleaned should resolve the issue.

Mounting the Projector from the Ceiling

Projectors, in general want to project the bottom of the image 1 foot above the lens at a typical range. When mounted upside down, they project the top of the image 1 foot below the center of the lens. If you don't want to turn the projector over, you'll have to change the angle and probably go to the extreme on the keystone correction.

Make sure the power wires from the ceiling mount are still in the electric box. Then have them come from the side near the screw mounting area. In otherwords, not through the center hole. In the center of the black metal part - there is where you put the reciever. It will fit literally resting on the black metal.
