Question about Sony VPL HS10 Multimedia Projector
I have a Sony VPL something projector in a 15' room projecting a 12' wide image on a wall that is painted with the proper screen paint etc. Worked great for 2 years. Now there is an oval blur several feet wide in the middle of the picture. Same blur with all movies, does not change with time. Tried new bulb and filter with no improvement at all of the blurred portion. I asked dealer and they suggested bulb & filter, then they said send it to someone for repair. The projector is on 8 hours / day, 3-4 days per week for the 2 years prior to this problem. Not sure of the model number, projector is at my office, but it sounds familiar to the model number listed below.
Unfortunately an expensive repair or total replacement are probably your only real options. Electronically the projector is fine but your problem lies in the physical optics part of it. Either part of the lense assembly or the refraction array is likely damaged or at least very dirty. I wouldn't suggest trying to clean it yourself as this is a 3 LCD projector and all 3 must align perfectly after cleaning or you'll end up with seperated colors. It could also be one of the LCD's is damaged but from your description I don't think so.
I have a client that had the exact same issue with a different VPL model and it was cheaper to go out and buy a new projector than to fix it.
