Re: the projected picture is "weak"

I think some of the lamps only run to about 1000-1500 hours anyway, so it will be weak. I put a new one in thats only done about 200-300 and it still seems weak to me. I think this projector is just poor quality.

How do i eliminate the vertical green lines on the projected area?

Sadly the LCD/DLP wafer is failing, and the problem will progressively get worse. The DLP wafers can be replaced but it may cost as much as replacing the entire projector with an updated one. SORRY!

Projection not large enough

Make sure that the projector is far back enough and also make sure you are running the maximum resolution from your laptop driver.

Projects blurry picture onto screen even after adjusting the focus. It is an EIKI Diamond Projector LC-SD10.

Did you connect signal with native resolution 800*600
blurred picture can also be caused by extreme contamination of optical parts

My Power light Continuasly blinksand wont turn on?

Lots of times with projectors is when you pack them away for a long time the bulb may become loose or maybe you have a wiring issue. its highly possible that your bulb may have just come loose. this occurs alot when you move it around alot. If it suffered any physical damage like maybe someone decided to use it as a stress relief punching bag then maybe the carbon fiber in the bulb may have snapped or a wire may have come loose inside the projecter. Hope i cleared up some of your confusion, unfortunately i dont have any real solutions for you. sorry. ~~RJ~~

Can not make picture bigger on my Sanyo PLC-SW20 projector

depending on the size of the surface you are projecting on, and what the zoom capacity of your lens is, you probably only have one choice available to you, and that is to move your projector farther away from what you are trying to project onto.....

hope this helps!

Dell 2300 projects verticle stripes accross the projector screen.

this is due to improper power supply or a loose connection inside. the symptoms are of power supply unit inside projector. check out the current and amperes inside the projector on board. sometime the current stable but the ampears are down.also check the switching transistors & filters inside.......
