Question about ViewSonic Office Equipment & Supplies
The projector has 3 VGA ports and the problem persists with every port. Multiple VGA cables have been tried, and multiple VGA-out devices, and it's all the same. The projector's demo screen is a colorful image on a white background, and looks fine when the projector boots up.
VGA is separated analog signals in Red, Blue, and Green. Under normal cases, you'd be able to change the cable, source, or input port and resolve the issue. Unfortunately, if the green tint persists with all input ports on the projector (The two blue ones are Input, the black one is output. There is a potential that attaching input to the black output port could have caused the damage), different sources, and different cables, then it's likely a problem with the projector hardware itself and would require warranty service or otherwise repair or replacement of the projector. If you have an alternate way the projector can be attached, then try that (Such as SVideo), otherwise there may not be any good solution in this case short of checking the guts of the system.

I assume connecting a monitor/lcd panel display doesn't exhibit the missing red? To narrow this down, try using the cable with either a different projector or monitor/flat panel display. In short, does the problem follow the cable to these other devices? If so, then even though there are no pins bent over, the cable is probably bad. Cables can develop an internal connection break, even without showing any external evidence. This will usually occur at a connector end, and is often the result of overflexing, bending or other straining of the cable near the connector. Can you borrow another cable from a friend? A couple of other possibilities: 1. A broken solder connection at the VGA jack inside the projector. This can occur, again, if the connection is stressed (flexed, jammed, pulled on etc.). 2. The circuitry just beyond the VGA jack, which processes the video information could have a defect, not passing the Red info. The latter problem is one for a capable technician, and depending on expertise, you might be able to repair a broken solder connection.

I changed the setting for color heat and got the right colors on the screen. The color is now perfect!!!

All the sympoms mentioned above is that of a faulty Mainboard that will have to be either repaired or replaced.

you can replace the colorwheel yourself, but unfortunately dell does not sell parts. you need to send the projectors in for repair. and like the other guy said, never buy lamps from e-bay.
