Re: Center of the screen is darkenned and discolored

Hi there

It sounds like you have a damaged Packlight Pipe Module.

Very cheap part to have replaced.

Easiest way to check is to switch on the unit and tilt it from side to side - if the darkened bits move , you can count on it that this is your problem.

I have two patches, that if you look closely look like the tracks of a circuit board, on my image. What is this?

Are you saying you see tracks (darkened circuit board) on the board? Most likely you have had a bad voltage surge or near by lightning strike that has burned through the circuit board (very high voltage). if you are talking about the screen image, you got me.

Projector picture has a darkened quarter screen on a angle

Ok I guess you have an optical mirror chamber error sounds good doesnt it but can happen if projector has been knocked or dropped in the optical engine there is a chamber connected in between the main lamp and internal glass lens you may see it if you look inside the lamp assembly this very small chamber has four very small mirrors in it and is held in place usually by a metal plate bracket you may find one of the mirrors has moved or dropped this makes the refraction of light incorrect which will cause your dark shadow on your image screen

Part of the screen is darkened

This is due to the light tunnel being out of adjustment or collasped. Either way, it must be determined which it is. The tunnel can only be adjusted while the top is off of the projector. I've done it numerous times, but it is dangerous because the proximity of the screw to the power supply. You should let a professional fix this.

Dark picture

either bad lamp (check fthe lamp or bulges, black spots or fogging), dirty projector (blow the dust out of it with canned air), or a fried fly-eye lens. the latter is the most probable. inside the lamp housing, there is a lens with long strips in it. that's the fly-eye #1. on the other side of it is another one, which most likely is burned due to excessive dust and heat) and needs to be replaced. i don't think sony sells individual parts, so you may have to send it back to them to repair.

I have an Infocus X3 projector. All of a sudden, on the right side of the screen, there is a dark band, about 12 inches on a one hundred inch picture. The band is not black , but it darkens the image in...

The light tunnel is between the color wheel and the mirrors. It is a square 4 sided tube, the inside is a mirror finish. the tube is either broken or the glue holding the assembly together has given out allowing the mirror to partially block the light. Advanced repair

I am having the same problem and am looking for a solution.  I do know what is causing it however.  Between the lamp and the lens system there is a small square tube made of mirrors that are glued together. One side of the mirror has come loose and is in the line of the light being projected by the lamp.  I have attempted to fix this by reglueing the mirrors, but it doesn't take long to fail again.  I am trying to find a replacement or an upgrade, maybe polished stainless.  The part is small, made of some type of plastic and cheaply made.  I am disappointed that such a seemingly insignificant part could be the root of such a problem.  Not impressed.

Proima lx2, darkening of the image and slight shake

either the fly-eye lens or the light polarizer is fried due to excessive dust and heat. bad news: you'll have to replace the entire optical engine. worse news: infocus doesn't make them anymore. sorry.

Why is my projection dark and muddy compared to the brightness on my computer screen?

John here, customer advocate at Dell headquarters. If you can nvigate to the On Screen Display Menu, you should see an "all images" section on the main menu. There you will find brightness, contrast, color temp, white intensity, and gamma controls. You should be able to make adjustments from that menu to sharpen and brighten the image.
