Question about Dell 3200MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Green tint I just purchased an epson powerlight s1. All the highlights are green. I tried adjusting the color and tint, but nothing seems to work. Even the main menu screen is not blue. Do you have any ideas what is wrong? I'm having a problem with green tints in yellows and grays and everything else is fine.

    Cables: USB plus 15 pin from computer. Both need to be connected to get any picture.

    Tried factory reset and it doesn't improve.

The screen has a dark green tint and cannot be adjusted. More specifically, the green section of the RGB setting on the monitor can't be changed (the G setting is permanently gray and I cannot move to that...

Take it in for repair seems to me that you have done all that you could to fix this monitor it is a flat maybe worth the repair if the repair is slightly less or more I would consider spending the green on a new one they are getting down in price. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Is there a way to access the tint function on the Apex4088? It is not accessable when we go into the picture setup menu. It appears to be locked.


The Tint function can be accesed by the following steps.

The PICTURE menu offers options to enhance and refine the picture displayed on your TV based on ambient room light and personal preferences. Adjustment options include contrast, brightness, color, sharpness and color temperature

Press the MENU button on the remote control. Navigate using t u arrow buttons to select PICTURE. Press the down q arrow button to highlight PICTURE MODE, then press the u arrow button to select your viewing preference from 4 factory options:
STANDARD > DYNAMIC > MOVIE > PERSONAL. The STANDARD setting is recommended for most viewing environments. Depending on the ambient light level in the room, you may find one of the other options more pleasing.

To make more critical adjustments based on your own preferences in PERSONAL:

• Use down q arrow button to highlight Contrast. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease contrast intensity.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Brightness. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease overall brightness.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Color. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease color intensity.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Tint. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to adjust colors toward green or reddish tint.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Sharpness. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to soften or view crisper edges in the picture.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Color Temperature. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to select COOL (more bluish tone), NORMAL or WARM. The default setting is NORMAL. WARM mode will provide color that is calibrated to D6500° Kelvin, the standard color that broadcast stations and the Motion Picture industry consider as the most accurate to view programming.
Note: When adjustments are completed, you may select another menu by pressing the Menu button.

Can"t find white or comfortable background screen other than a light green that is hurting my eyes

If you have a screen that gets "tints" of various colors on a corner or edge, check that the monitor plugin cable is not near or laying on top of a power cable, the magnetic field around a power cord will cause a monitor to get strange tints or lines in the screen. Option two if the entire screen has a tint equally all over it is possibly the color is out of adjustment or failing - a technician should be able to adjust it internally.

Magenta Color

Here is something that may help from the website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177
If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Greenish tint

Not sure if this is the solution, but I believe the color polarizer filters have been burned. I have a yellow haze circle on mine and I'm pretty sure that's the problem. In my case the blue filter is burned, leaving the red and green stronger yeilding a yellow blur.

Green tint I can't seem to fix

Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.

By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Big Green Bar

Hi Tom017

Does this green bar show even when there is no signal inserted into the Projector ?

If it doesn't then you can try using a different cable - that should solve this for you.

If it doesn't then you might be in for a quite expensive Mainbaord repair or replacement.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

Green tint

LCD projectors can have a green tint for a fiew reasons. Either the signal processor is out which can cause all sorts of funkyness, or the lcd panel itself is not seated properly. Also the memory driver for the lcd panel can be messed up in some way.
Bottom line, if you are getting a green tint even on the menu then it would be a problem you would need to have addressed by a trained technician.
For now, you can try to do a through cleaning and try to dust out the light path.
I do not know how deeply you want to dig into the thing but if you can get to it make sure the optics are clean.
Also look into the optical path while it is off and try to locate any weird films or dust. Sometimes hard to spot I know. 
Good Luck.
