Question about Yamaha LPX500 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Does not display the color blue?

I have a Yamaha LPX-500 projector that is no longer displaying the color blue when turned on. This is true for all input types (cable and DVD). Everything is either red or green in color? Does this mean that the bulb needs to be replaced or is there something else going on?

Re: Does not display the color blue?


lamp replacement will not solve your problem. The problem is with the main board or RGB Panels.

Yamaha LPX-510 projector: There's a large blue circle around the entire image. Bad bulb, lcd panel, needs cleaning...?? Help!

Chances are the lamp was reinstalled and didn't get put in the right position. There could also be a problem with the concentrator/heat shield lens or light pipe (if it has one). Sounds like either someone replaced the lamp and didn't get it back together or the unit has been dropped.

My YAMAHA LPX-500 projectors start up logo remains faintly visible constantly during operation-any answers?

Hello sounds like you have the logo screen burned into one of your LCD panels. This will be a very expensive repair, seen as the LPX-500 is only an 800 lumen projector, it would be a good time to look for a replacement. I would not recommend spending any money on this unit.
Hope this helps

Welcome to the disapointing world of LCD projection. Your blue device is dying and thus allowing the green to come through instead of combining for white. I suggest buying a dlp product they are immune to this color decay problem. Good luck

Yamaha LPX 500 home cinema projector isn't lighting up

The reason for a red light is replacement of lamp or it is running too hot. Have you checked for proper venting, and cleaned them recently. The bulb usually lasts 2000 hours, so you may need another.

I just saw your post & today is Mar 19,2008. I had the same problem and was pissed until I noticed YAMAHA has a good warranty, so I sent it back and they put in NEW OPTICS that are non-organic (I guess the original ones were organic) NOW my picture is much better than when it was new. This picture is so clear I can not believe it.
