    Thanks catnip20 - if it was just a bit off I would be happy but with a photo of lovely red sunset clouds I get a gloomy greenygrey thunder clouds. manipulating the cable to projector cable like an aerial can improve things. The projector can project red - its instruction panel screens have red. It just wont reproduce red from the computer.

    The red does not show up on red on through my projector - it's more black than anything. Also the green shows yellow. Really I can only see yellow, black, and blues. I've done everything to reseting to factory setting and everything. Also it's not as bright as it should be - I can barely see it if the lights are on.

In short If the reds show as red, The greens show as green & Blue shows as blue. I would say thats as good as it can project. It's hard to judge color without seeing it for ones self but usually DLP projectors that use a colorwheel do not have perfect color.

My PJ506D Viewsonic projector is projecting an image with too much green. How can I adjust this?

You will have to go into the menu system and find the controls for the red, green and blue guns and adjust the red and blue guns to counter the green.

Atypically if this is an older projector and has seen a lot of use you will start to experience the degradation of luminescence in the tubes.

Resolution: If the adjustments do not resolve the color issue, you will need to have one or more guns replaced. The economics of this replacement point to a new projector.

I have set the auto shutdown to maximum, however, the projector keeps shutting after 20 minutes. What is causing this?

Check to make sure that the auto shutdown is turned off. This should prevent any further problems.
