Color bleeding - blue colors always on the screen

Looks like a burnt in image.
I was running in 720P mode for a long time since it is a 4:3 aspect lcd projector, the top and bottom were black lines in letterbox mode.

A blue line formed at the bottom of the wide screen and has since spread to the middle of the screen.

I have tried isolating the projector away from other devices, the blue colors appear all the time, with nothing plugged in or via vga or component.
I tried resetting all the settings on the projector.

I took out the bulb for a while it looked good and I used a air-can to dust it out.

any ideas? :)
has my poor projector been overused and now its damaged for good?

The image color on projection is not the same as shown in laptop. There's is no red color.

It could be a broken connection in the computer lead for the red signal, or a fault on the projector that the red panel doesn't work any more.

To diagnose, bring up the projector's on screen display. If there's white in the menus then the problem is the cable. Replace it with a new one. If the menus are affected too then it's a projector problem. This requires the attention of a service engionner.

Hi there, my dell projector 1800mp is not projecting an image on screen and it only black lines across. what should I do to fix it?.

After turning on the projector, press "+" and "-" buttons on the control panel

simultaneously for 3 seconds and release the buttons when screen goes blank.

2 Press "+" and "-" buttons again to exit the diagnostic mode.

3While in Self-diagnostic mode, the screen will run a seven-color-cycle test as


Red--> Green--> Blue--> White--> Watchet Blue--> Dark Green--> Yellow.

Ensure that the colors of the test pattern are correct. Contact Dell if the colors are
not displayed correctly.

Images has a blue color across the center

Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

Seeing a blue "haze" on presentations, and when on blank screen

On the "Option" menu, try selecting "Service" and the "Factory Reset". This may help. If not, you will have to use the menus to manually adjust the level of blue in the projectin. Go here for the manual for your Hitachi and you will find instructions:

Color problem after warm up.

The probelm is caused by either a bad color wheel sensor, color wheel or formatter board. I have the new redesigned sensor assembly and color wheels that I can sell. It is best if you send me the projector for proper diagnosis.
