Question about Sanyo PLC XU50 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

PROJECTOR POWERS DOWN

Our projector shows a "disorted" video image (B&W instead of color, squiggly lines) and then shows the blue "no input detected" screen when in the VIDEO mode. It then powers down (flashing red lights) after about 2 minutes (NOT the "NO SIGNAL" countdown, it powers down on its own.

In the laptop/computer mode, it will display the computer image perfect, however it will also power down on its own after several minutes. Again, no warning, no countdown, just flashing lights until the fan stops blowing.

This would appear to be a bulb that has reached end of life -- or the projector thinks that it is because of hours. Usually most bulbs are 1000 or 2000 hours. Depending on your projector there are different ways of checking bulb life hours -- if you Google your projector model number and "bulb life" you will usually get a post on how to check these hours. Also, if it is a new bulb and you haven't reset the hours counter, it may need to be reset (however you also don't want to wait too long before changing a bulb that has reached EOL since they can and do explode sometimes taking out the projector with it).

My projector has lines on the screen. new bulb didn't help


If this projector is connected by Component Video (3 or 5 wires) instead of HDMI, the most common color related problems are caused by having one of the 3 video cables (Red, Blue or Green) with a bad connector. If everyone is a green smurf the problem is with the red cable. If everyone is a red smurf the problem is the blue cable. If the green was bad you wouldn't see anything.
Another possibility is if the green is plugged into the yellow jack instead of green jack on the projector, you could see what you are describing.
If everything checks out, take the projector to a repair facility.
If you are connected by an HDMI cable, (combined with the fact you mentioned vertical lines not horizontal) then take the projector to a repair facility.
All of this assumes that you don't just have a bad Cable Box or Blu-ray player or Home Theater Receiver. (The source)

I have a Sanyo projector that shows a completely blue image - I can see the computer image but it is completely blue - Whet I press the menu button the normal colours come up for the menu


it sounds like the wire you are using to connect your PC to projector is bad

if color is normal when menu comes up then it is not projector unless the input for your PC is bad

i would try new cable first since that would be cheapest

do other sources in other inputs work???

LCD projector not displaying color only black and white


Did you ever see color on this projector?
It could be the composite input cant detect the "color burst" 3.58 mhz signal for chroma.

Have you tried a different input?
That could help you track down what the problem may be.

My NEC mt1075 projector is projecting a shade of blue all over. The entire screen is showing the correct image, but also with a shade of blue. I think something is wrong with the internal wiring. Is this a...


If you're using component video (red/green/blue rca cables) one of the colors may be disconnected, or the wires may be swapped into the wrong color input. If you are using a 15 pin VGA connector, one of the pins may not be getting good contact at the source or at the projector. Or if the VGA cable is split into 5-wire to make a long cable run, one of the five wires may be disconnected. Any of these problems will cause a global color shift while not affecting the color of the projector's on screen menus.

Thin vertical line appears on projector


I have found that vertical lines that suddenly appear from projectors are due to poorly connected cables. Sut off your projector and wait for the fan to go off. Then unplug the connectors from the computer to the projector and secure them again, making sure to go all the way. Hope this helps.
