Question about ASK Proxima Proxima DP2000S Data Video Projector ( DP-2000S, DP 2000S ) Multimedia Projector

White vertical line in the center of projected image

We have had our X2 for about 3.5 years and not changed the bulb out.

Within the last two weeks, a vwrtical white line, about 2 inches wide, has appered in the center of the image.

It appears after about 10 minutes of usage.

Is this a bulb issue or is this an issue with the projector itself? I do not use the projector for regular televison watching, only movies and random gaming. It is hanging upside down from the ceiling, so it is not bumped or banged regularly.

    I have a Dell 2200MP Projector.
    It has multiple vertical white lines running through the entire image.

    The lines are in sets of four with one line very faint.

    Its impossible to ignore.

    Sure wish someone knew how to fix this.

    I had the same problem with an InFocus X1 - it started with one vertical band on the left hand side of the image. I took the projector apart to see if anything as loose, but when I put it back together there were two lines, like this:

    After trying a third time, the image has got much worse, there are multiple white lines going down the image and several corrupted pixels. I tried InFocus who have told me they no longer service the X1. Does anybody know what this problem is and how much it might cost to solve?

I have a Dell 2400MP projector that had the same problem of vertical white lines appearing over the screen.

This may seem like a simple solution, and I don't know if this will work for you, but the way I solved the problem was simply to press the bottom side of the projector, until the white lines disappear . Until now, the problem has yet to resurface.

Here's some simple steps:
1. Turn on projector
2. Connect projector to computer
3. Focus projector
4. If white vertical line appears, firmly press underside body of projector
5. See if vertical white line disappears
6. If not, try slowly pressing other parts of the body of the projector and see if white lines disappear.
7. If solution doesn't work, you may need to send it to the service center.

Hope this solution works for you.

Best Regards,

When there is a single solid vertical or horizontal lines in the image it is an indication that either:
1) There is an issue in the DMD elastomer (socket the DMD sits into)
2) Cable Connection Issue between the Engine/DMD and the Main ECA where the TI DMD Control devices reside
3) Potentially multiple defective DMD pixels (cluster) this is where mulitpole pixels go bad side by side. When this occurs it cause the entoire row or column to display as a solid line (off state). If this is the case the solution is replacment of the DMD chip itself which is costly.

Hi there

This is a common Mainboard problem on Projectors.

The only way to get rid of it would be to replace the Mainboard or have it repaired.

Must warn you that it could turn out to be a expensive exercise !

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080

Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.

White lines appearing on display after picture is taken

I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.

I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.

Hope i helped solve your problem.
