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.

SOURCE: Projection has yellow tint

From your description, it sounds like a problem with the blue color. Green LCD=purple onscreen, Red=cyan(baby blue) onscreen, Blue LCD=yellow onscreen. It could be a lot of dust on the blue lcd panel, or worse, might be a burned polarizer filter behind the lcd panel due to excessive heat. If you can focus on the yellow and its tons of yellow specs, its dust. A burned filter however, must be replaced. A technician trained in projectors will have to do it. The filter material is glued to a thin glass panel and is replaced as a single filter. It's a very involved repair.

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.

My optoma projector has a green tint

it may just need a service, as all DLP projectors need to be cleaned internally as well as LCD.
DLP projector images will flicker and lose colour also may shut down if it is very dusty inside.

Yellow green display

you may have a bad cable. if it was an internal problem, the menu wouldn't be the correct color. you may also want to reset the settings to factory default, just to cover the resolution issue.

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.

Yellow-green tint

I had the same problem and found out that it was the cable from the projector to the computer. HD D-sub 15-pin cable.
