Re: image flickers and colors off

I have the same problem as philvo. I was watching, the projector was operating normally, I heard a snap, there was a flash of light behind me I believe, and my Mitsubishi XD300U projector went to a black and white picture. That is all it will show now. All lights show normal operation. I would like to know if it is worth getting repaired. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have optima projector and started flickering, green and other colors and after about 10 min. I hear a noise and the system shuts down. I seen by removing the dust it will stop flickering and once I did...

I have solved the problem (running fine for 10 days now)
I was planning to replace the bulb, but after reading the different posts, i understood it was NOT in cause.

i had to open the projector, remove and clean every part :
- the motherboard
- very dusty alim parts (radiators)
- the big fan blades (i used silicon lubricant for the rotor)
- the optical block
- the TINY RADIAL FAN IN THE OPTICAL BLOCK (very hard to clean)

advices :
1/ take pictures of what you're doing
2/ tape well the folded plastic and aluminum parts to avoid light leaks !

The sound came from the switching power supply and the lamp ballast circuitary. You need to replace the color wheel sensor, I can fix it.

LP600 - Grainy picture, very poor quality

Single chip DLP projectors use a spinning color wheel between the lamp and the DMD (mirror chip) to produce colors. If the wheel rotation/synchronization is disturbed, colors will not be displayed correctly.
In my case it looks like the wheel became un-synchronized, probably because the projector was dusty/dirty inside (a light senor is used to detect the wheel position), resulting in a grainy, slightly flickering image.
I simply blew out the components with a can of 'Dust-off' and, using a small tool, rotated the color wheel by hand to make sue it wasn't rubbing or jammed.
I reassembled & started the projector and the image was back to normal.

Hi, If you have tried other video sources & still get the same results. It sounds like the motor that turns the color wheel is going bad, These motor's run from 5,000 to 10,000 rpm depending on model & are usually the first point of failure in a color wheel based DLP projector, If you don't count the lamp.
Overtime it may begin to make a squealing noise. Usually you can find replacement motors on the internet by searching the part number printed on the motor google is great for searching part numbers.
