Re: viewsonic pj800

I had the same problem with a few pj800's that I have worked on. It turns out that with old age and constant hot and cold temperature exposure the pixels in lcd panels will become shorted or actually die out. When current is applied there is no pixel activity therefore causing distorted images and lines that appear to drop out or down in the picture. Replacement of all 3 lcd assemblies is needed to correct problem. And being such an old projector the price of the parts would exceed the cost of a new bulb. I reccomend trying to find a used one for parts working or not 99% of the time the lcds are usually fine. Or check out ebay for some used projectors you can find up to date used ones with three times better picture quality than the pj800 for under $300.00 shipped. Good luck!

Problem with a Viewsonic pj800 LCD projector. The image looks like it's not aligned properly. Like it's a double image and the color is all distorted. I imagine there is something wrong with the...

The image is made up of three polarisers, one tends to fail causing a problem with the image. On average it may cost £300 per polariser to be fixed. As you know these days you can get a projector for that price as everyone now wants HD and 3D. I recently bought 7x NEC NP115 for just over £200 each. Very good spec, auto power up (Which was important for what I needed)

hope that helps

My project image is flipped horizontally on the screen, but displays normally on my laptop. How do I fix my projector image?

The projector may have a menu function for flipping the image dependent on whether it is merely set on a desk, or mounted upside down on the ceiling. See the manual, printed or online.

Words are backwords

There ia likely a menu item as some projectors can be mounted upside down OR more likely, used for rear projection requiring reverse reading.

Look for a menu setup item to change this.

Duplicate image in pink displays on the screen.

From your description, it sounds like an alignment problem. There are 3 LCD panels in the projector. Each one displays an exact duplicate image of the others except it's either red, green, or blue. Under normal conditions, the images precisely overlay one another so you get a sharp image. Due to age, heat, or vibration/shock(impact) it would appear that the red LCD panel has shifted a little, giving the "ghosting" effect. You'll have to have the unit repaired by a qualified tech. He'll have the special electronic equipment needed to align the panels properly. Before sending the unit in, try a reset in the menu. Sometimes, the projectors can shift the image electronically, using math algorithms which will try to auto-sharpen the display. Hope I was able to help!---Rick

Viewsonic PJ513DB DLP Projector projects upside down

Double check which menu item you are expecting to find the orientation. It might even be under 'image', 'settings', or its own button not in the menu, Jon.
