Magenta diagonal grid appearing on the upper part of the screen projected

Hi, There is a magenta diagonal grid appearing on the upper part of the screen projected. The only thing I can think of is that some kind of filter has moved after having bashed the projector at some point. Do you know what it could be?
Thank you for your help.
Best regards
Juan Salas

I think you have shifted the lenses from the original position. this problem comes when you reinstall the lens/Color filters after service. if it is the same then check the positioning of lens/filters again.

I,ve got a red spot in the screen i replaced the bulp but stil have the problem

it is most likely a burned polarizing filter. There is a polarizing filter on the blue light channel and another on the red channel. When black, or other dark colours are displayed, the red polarizing filter is supposed to block ALL of the red light being projecter. If the filter is burned, some light slips through and creates a red tinge on the projected image. If the red tinge only appears on dark images, but is absent when the images is completely white, a damaged filter is likely the problem.

Seems its hard to buy them. Best bet is probably buying a broken projector from ebay and stealing the filters out of it.

HC 1500 skewed image issue

Hi there

I've worked on a few Mitsubishi's in my lifetime and one of their most common problems is the DMD Board that goes faulty and this makes the image go all pear shaped.

If you've only had the unit for 3 months now it should still be under warranty and the warranty covers these kind of repairs.

Hope this helps you !

Sharper Imaage

This is an SVGA projector with a max resolution of 800X600. Even though it can accept higher resolution signals, they are scaled down to 800X600 which causes degradation and artifacting of the displayed image. Obviously setting your computer's resolution to 800X600 will result in the best image the projector is capable of. Standard definition video (480i, 480p, S-Video or composite) signals should also display very well. High definition signals like 720p and 1080i get scaled down to 800X600 with the same issues as a higher resolution computer signal.

One thing that can have a dramatic impact on the quality of your display if you are using Windows XP or Vista is tuning your ClearType settings here:
