Compaq MP1600 Green Tint

When the projector is powered up, the display has a green tint.  It displays all images with a heavy green tint (green instead of white for example) and doesn't display the whole range of colors.
Tried factory reset but it had no effect.

    Same MP1600 that DEW told you about. Try-ed the projector with my Compaq computer w/xp home edition sp 2, AMD Athlon(TM) XP 3000+,

    2.16 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM Still has green hew and picture is not centered properly. Right to left centering is off to the right as you look at it. lagre block of green on the left side that will not move left to center image. What can cause this problem. try-ed all adjustment settings that the menu would allow me to? Nothing works.

SOURCE: no display on expantion vga port for projector

The problem might be related to your native screen resolution. The C702TU laptop has a resolution of 1280 x 800. Most projectors do not support this resolution and if you cloned the main display, your projector cannot sync at this resolution. Look for an option to output a second display )instead of cloning) within your display settings. If your projector is plugged into your VGA port and turned on, Windows usually detects the second display automatically. Change the resolution on the second screen to something like 1024x768 or 800x600. These resolutions are supported almost universally across projectors.

Projector image has heavy green tint, change lamp but still getting green tint, what should I check next?


Check the connection. Some pins on the VGA? may have been twisted or broken. Use a different cable.

The image color on projection is not the same as shown in laptop. There's is no red color.


It could be a broken connection in the computer lead for the red signal, or a fault on the projector that the red panel doesn't work any more.

To diagnose, bring up the projector's on screen display. If there's white in the menus then the problem is the cable. Replace it with a new one. If the menus are affected too then it's a projector problem. This requires the attention of a service engionner.

How can I fix a synmaster b1630 monitor that has green tint on screen now?


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Display has a green tint to it tho it looks fine on the laptop.


A tinted image (whether green or another color) is almost always a symptom of a bad or damaged cable - or a loose cable connection. In your case, you'll likely need a new M1 to VGA cable (Part# SP-DVI-A-R).

Assuming that you've made sure that the cable connections are solid at both ends, there is a simple test to verify that this is a cable issue and not a costly projector issue. While the image is tinted green, open the menu. If the menu colors appear fine while the rest of the image is still tinted green it's the cable.

NEC LT35 color problem


If you're trying to project video, then the unit needs professional service. If you're trying to project from a computer, you may have a loose display cable, broken pins in one or both ends of the display cable, or broken conductors (wires) within the display cable. The computer sends its image information as a template of RED image components, GREEN image components and BLUE image components with the projector overlays to create the complete image with blended color values. (The computer also sends HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL synchronization signals, but those don'e affect the color content of the projected image.) That's why I'm suspicious of the display cable, conductors or pins.

Hi guys

You will be looking at either repairing or replacing the Mainboard where all the colour processing is done.

Tinted image


If you are plugging in a monitor cable, it is most likely a cable issue. I would try another cable and make sure the cable is seated firmly into the projector. If that doesn't help, check the port on the projector for bent or missing pins because it seems that not all of the video information is reaching the unit.
