Your problem is most likely your Blue and Green lens' inside the light engine. It's not something you can replace yourself. I worked for Philips for 14 yrs. repairing the LCD projectors the last 6 Yrs. Call philips and get the number of an ASC in your area that has repaired projectors.

The background projects as yellow instead of white. Everything has a yellow tinge to it.


It sounds like one of the polarisers has failed, on experience they cost £300 each to replace, and there are 3 of them. I recently bought an NEC NP115 for just over £200, very good spec for the cost. It maybe worth investing in a new one.

Hope I was helpful for you.

Phillips bSure XG1 LC3141 Projector. Images are dull in colour, and also has yellow tinge all over. Have replaced lamp but this did not fix the problem. Unit ~ 7 years old.


Try opening the unit and cleaning the LCD and lens, and also clean the outer lens- it sounds like this unit may have been stored or used in a smokey environment!

I,ve got a red spot in the screen i replaced the bulp but stil have the problem


it is most likely a burned polarizing filter. There is a polarizing filter on the blue light channel and another on the red channel. When black, or other dark colours are displayed, the red polarizing filter is supposed to block ALL of the red light being projecter. If the filter is burned, some light slips through and creates a red tinge on the projected image. If the red tinge only appears on dark images, but is absent when the images is completely white, a damaged filter is likely the problem.

Seems its hard to buy them. Best bet is probably buying a broken projector from ebay and stealing the filters out of it.

I cannot succeed to focus my lc6231 philips projector


Two possibilities:

1. projector probably too close to the screen
or
2. The focus ring at the end of the lens must be manually turned (hard to find if you don't know it's there).

Problem with the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector (when recieved) - No red, constant yellow tinge and constant lines.


It is because the xbox 360 is set to 60hz, change it to 50hz and it will be clear like it's meant to be. However, some 360 games are 60hz so for those games the quality is not good.

Yellow middle, Blue Exterior


Hi Druaga

This is a Blue LCD Polarizer that will have to be replaced if the spot shows yellow.

You will find that this will only get worse as time goes by.
