Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 5700 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Display problem When putting my Playstation 3 through the component input, there is no red displayed, only blue and green. I have only ever used the video input before and there is no problem with displaying red this way. I have tried both component inputs (sources 3 and 6) and the problem is the same with both. I have switched the RGB cables around to verify it is not a problem with the red cable. I suspect it may be a problem with the projector. Any ideas?

Re: display problem

Make sure you're on the correct input. there is a difference between composite and component. also check your cables

Sharp Notevision PG-C30XE problem with computer display

There are 3 different types of analog video signal ports on your projector; s-video, composite video, and RGB. Which one of the three are you using to connect your PC to?
The projector's resolution rate is XGA [1024 x 768]
If you are using a VGA cable designed and capable of handling 640 x 480 resolution; then it will not support XGAs 1024 x 768 signal. On the other hand, if the coaxial cable you are using is a multi band one that is capable of supporting VGA and XGA resolution signals, most likely the problem is not with the cable- although I have come across brand new cables that are defective.
Please let me know if this helps or else we'll try another approach :)

I see no red and green colors on screen projected by pjtx 100, the rest of the colors are visible.

If you are using a component video cable (Red, Green, Blue) you may simply be missing the Red cable. It may not be fully plugged in.
You can verify that this is the case by: 1. Unplugging all video cables 2. Plug in the green cable, you should see a black and white image. 3. Plug in the blue cable, you should see some colours coming through. 4. Plug in the red cable, you should see all colours properly.
If not, unplug the blue and red cables and plug the blue cable into the red port. The colours will look incorrect, skin tones will be blue. If the colour comes through the problem is the cable. If the colour does not come through, the problem may be the projector.

Hello Adam, try replacing your signal cable. the signal cable has 3 color wires, 1 for red, 1 for blue, and 1 for green, the green wire is cut off, due to stress of twisting and pulling. find one on ebay. thats it.

How do i connect more compponents to my projector

The projector came with three video cables, and one audio. The first of the video cables is for component (three colors, which are blue, green, red) and is used for HD (hi definition) components. The second is an S-Video cable, which is used for just that, S-Video, which is one step below HD. The last type is composite, which is used for regular input. It has one input, which is yellow.

In order to utilize more than one component, you have to have a switching device. Since it is impractical (for me, anyway) to constantly unplug one video cable on the Cinego and plug in another of a different type, you must ensure that all of your components are of the same type. You may convert somewhat between components using cable adapters, but can only do so when the conversion is one level. The levels, from highest to lowest, are thus: HD, Component, S Video, Composite. You can go from one level to another which is one above or below, but cannot jump two levels.

As one example, if you want to utilize the HD capabilities of the Cinego, and you have HD cable or satellite and also a BlueRay disc player, such as a Playstation 3, you connect your HD cable/satellite and the PS3 each to a switching device, and connect the switching device output to the component input on the Cinego. The switching device, if you buy an automatic one, will detect whether the cable box or PS3 is on, and will transmit that signal to your Cinego. You may have to use an HDMI to Component conversion cable, or your switching device may have the ability to input HDMI but output the Component. The Cinego can only input the Component, as it doesn't have the HDMI input connector. The auto switiching device is about $25 and is available at big box retailers such as WalMart. So are the cables available there.

Blue instead of red colour afer replacing lamp in sharp xv-z2000

You didn't put your 3-D glasses on backwards, did you? :)

Seriously, if you are using the component inputs, be sure the three cables didn't get mixed up when you put the projector back. Otherwise, you might have an issue with the color wheel inside the projector, but I doubt it.

NEC LT35 color problem

If you're trying to project video, then the unit needs professional service. If you're trying to project from a computer, you may have a loose display cable, broken pins in one or both ends of the display cable, or broken conductors (wires) within the display cable. The computer sends its image information as a template of RED image components, GREEN image components and BLUE image components with the projector overlays to create the complete image with blended color values. (The computer also sends HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL synchronization signals, but those don'e affect the color content of the projected image.) That's why I'm suspicious of the display cable, conductors or pins.

not all computers are F4 - some are F7... - If there is not a small graphic on each Function button - just press and hold your function button and I'd start with F3 then F4 then F5 and so on - often your image will appear on the projection screen and disappear from your laptop - just re press Function and the appropriate key - you may also need to change your display - go to your control panel then display then settings and you will want 1024x768 - as far as cables you will need a male VGA that will plug into (usually blue) connection on your laptop and then depends on what type of projector you are using - it may take a VGA or RGB (5pin cable ~ red green blue horizontal vertical) make sure that in your menu settings that you have it set to the same as the input you have plugged into

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