I,ve just bought the above projector on ebay and received it today. I switched it on expecting a blue screen with the logo as I get from my Sony projector however all i get is a white screen with no menu. The remote seems to work as I connected my Wii console using the red white and yellow leads and I get sound through but no picture. Any ideas

Given that the bulb actually lights up and then goes out you need to check the contacts at the base of the socket to ensure proper contact is consistently made at the base of the bulb. Be sure to unplug the projector prior to inspecting and adjusting.
this discoloration is the begining of the lcd panel being thermal damaged. this happens when the projector is being used for a long period of time and then being shut off using the switch on the rear of the projector instead of the on/off on top or the remote. to fix it it will have to be replaced. very expensive major repair.
you can check the fuses (located on the power supply board where the cord plugs in), but it's more likely that the caps are dried out and need replacing, or the whole board itself. if that's the case, try av solutions in ny. they're an infocus service center and they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com
if it only has a blue tint when the computer or video is hooked up, reset the settings to factory default and replace the cables. if the splash screen (when it says "infocus") has the blue tint, one of the light filters are fried due to excessive heat and dust. unfortunately, you'll have to replace the entire optical engine.
Check the "Default Source" using the remote or buttons on top of the projector.
Default Source toggles among Computer 1 analog, Computer 1 digital, Computer 2, and Video. This determines which source the projector checks first for active video during power-up. Highlight Default Source and click the left or right mouse button to toggle among the options.
