Projector only projects black and white images

    The system was professional installed and uses a white, red, yellow and one additional cable. The original projector went bad and I replaced it with this one. The old projector had great color. Now all I get is black and white.

If the cables are fine, try resetting the settings to factory default. if still no good, you may need to replace the colorwheel. you could buy the part and do it yourself, or send it in to an infocus service center. either way, try www.avsolutionsny.com. they're really good.

I suspect that your one additional cable may be an "S" video cable. I've experienced bad cables or connections where the black and white portion of the video is being passed but the colour portion is not. I'd check that the existing cables are inserted all the way (maybe even wiggle them a bit) and if that doesn't work, try another cable. Off note, I'm nut sure of your source, but there are higher resolution connections than the Composite "Yellow" input.
This may be an opportunity for you to upgrade to a Component or HDMI input connection.

Vivtek d510 projector has black and white spots covering 1/3 of projected image


The DLP Chip is failing .The DLP or Digital Light Projection Chip contains up to 8 million tiny microscopic mirrors that tilt to project a digital image onto the screen. These mirrors are failing causing light and dark spots to appear.Unfortunately fixing this projector is probably going to cost more than buying a new one. Hope this helps.

Black and white specks from InFocus X1 projector


if you can get a menu when you press the menu button, reset the settings to factory default. if you don't get a menu, the color wheel or the dmd chip is bad. either way, you'll have to replace the entire optical engine. and unfortunately, infocus no longer has any more in stock.

Philips 55 inch hdtv rear projector





Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Tinted image


If you are plugging in a monitor cable, it is most likely a cable issue. I would try another cable and make sure the cable is seated firmly into the projector. If that doesn't help, check the port on the projector for bent or missing pins because it seems that not all of the video information is reaching the unit.
