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.

My epson projector shows a non growing yellow tinge in the centre of the image. The projector is about 4 years old. EMP-TW700. I am a fairly heavy user.

From my experience, the projector bulb has most likely received a blemish of some kind from something such as accumulated dust on the front, to a fingerprint from where it has been handled by someone replacing it.
This yellow tinge then occurs when the blemish is burned onto the surface of the bulb.
In my opinion, unfortunately, you may need to get a new bulb.
Hope this helps!

Circular yellowish tinge projected on screen. Outer edges white.

First, check your cables on the input side. If your using RGB, it could be a bad cable, If your using DVI or HDMI, it's more than likely the convergence chip and will have to be serviced. Try a DVD player as a source connected directly to the unit with a new cable; ie. HDMI, DVI, or component and check the picture. If it's still the same, it definately needs serviced. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you further. Hope this helps.

Samsung hc-p4252w - yellow tinge on left side of screen

If you put magnet speaker ( Standard speaker) near the TV, first you must move that speaker away from your TV because this will cause your colour TV screen color scattered. Then switch off your TV for 5 hrs. then switch it ON again your problem will be solved if the degaussing coil working.

Purple tinged camera screen

all you have to do is, (Now, I know this may sound crazy but it will help) Take apart your camera. Disconnect the black cord wrapped around the blue cord. Pull out the yellow cord out and throw it away. That yellow cord is a virus which is causing your screen to go purple. Now reconnect the black cord and unwrap it from around the blue cord. This will cause your screen to not only turn back to normal but to hold 2x the space of pictures you would usually hold. If this doesn't work, then stop being lazy and buy yourself a new camera. Yes, I'm talking to you granny!!

Good day my fellow American citizens. I really do hope this works. Thank you for your time. ;)

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.

Garbo Mirror Mode not selectable in menu My Philips Garbo Matchline is about four years old. After being switched off for the past six months, it is no longer possible to select Mirror mode from the Picture menu. (We need to do this to invert the projected image, since the projector is ceiling mounted and thus upside down). This worked fine for the first three years of the projector's life. Not any more, however. Using either the remote or front panel buttons, I enter the menu, cursor down through the Picture Menu options until I reach Mirror at the bottom of the second page. This reveals a set of four sub-options: AB / BA / BV / VB [approximately], representing the four ways of orienting the display. When I try to move the current selection from the default AB, the entire menu rotates so that the AB option moves with the cursor. The new menu then looks like this: VB / [AB] / BA / BV and [AB] is still selected, even though the cursor is now on the second item on the line. Moving the cursor right does the same again (rotates entire menu, without changing the actual selection). This is quite bizarre. I've tried resetting to factory defaults, making the change both with and without video sources connected, using alternate buttons on the remote while in the menu, and (of course), Philips technical support. Nobody has anything to suggest. The projector works perfectly in all other respects, and in particular, other menu options can be selected correctly with no strange effects. Suggestions appreciated!
