Question about Sony VPL VW10HT Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

VW10HT screen filled with horizontal lines until unit warms up (5-10 minutes!)

My 7-year-old Sony VW10-HT front projector is exhibiting a new behaviour that leads me to believe it's wearing out. Until it warms up completely (sometimes up to 10 minutes) the screen is filled with heavy horizontal lines. Once it clears, the picture is fine. I replaced the bulb, but it didn't help. Any ideas?

I have a similar problem with our projector. It help to reverse the output for some reason. When reversed, all horizontal banding disappears.

It could be your cable is too long and the attenuation is too much.
Can you use the same lead that you did for the TV ?

Displays only narrow horizontal band of light on screen do you have any ideas

What you haveis most likely a horizontal collapse, You will have to take the unit in and have it repaired, go to a trusted techie though, Its most likely just a "cold solder joint," few minutes to fix if that is it and if the tech will admit that it is something so simple.
If you take your hand and hit the side of the projector does the line react at all? If it flashes even slightly then you are on the right track
Unfortunately a cold solder joint can sometimes be difficult to locate and due to the intigration you can no longer just check the horizontal control sect of the board....You may try asking the tech If he/she believes it "may" be a cold solder joint......good luck
