Question about Mitsubishi XL1XU Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Bright then dark

I have a Mitsubishi xl1xu projector. On occasion, the screen will dim to where I can barely see anything. Then it returns to normal. Sometimes right away. Sometimes it stays dim for minutes at a time. Once this starts happening, it continues until I have to turn it off and wait for the bulb to cool. I don't like having to turn the projector off all the time, is there a better solution. (p.s. I'm using a new bulb)

Dark pictures after a lamp change normally indicate that the lamp isn't aligned properly, or that it has been touched with bare fingers and caused a black mark, or it's an inferior (budget) lamp.

Picture way too dark to watch comfortably. Have already adjust all settings to maximize brightness. Bulb was replaced late last year and says 1,000 hours have been used but projector has not prompted me...


Unfortunately dim image is normally due to a defective lamp assembly. I'd recommend removing the lamp and inspecting its condition. You'll notice black corrosion build up or a bubble is starting to form around the filament of the bulb if it is what's causing the dim image.

Can see what is on tv but is really dark have to turn lights down to see it.


How old is your bulb? If it's got more than 1000 hours, it may just be getting dim and needs to be replaced.
I need dark curtains in my living room to view movies, you just can't watch anything in a bright room with this unit.

Hi there

The most common cause for a Ballast to go faulty is power failures & power spikes and off course lightning.

I normally advise my clients to hook up a UPS to the Projector just to make the power supplied to the Projector more even and smooth.

Ballast problems however occurs more than often on any model of Mitsubishi I have found.

There could be several reasons for this problem.
1. New lamp needed.
2. New lamp did not fix? Could be mirror tunnel behind the color wheel than can collapse causing "dim" light source or dark lines.
3. All items "greyed" out caused when the unit does not sense a source input, ie computer or tv tuner. After connecting to a source, you should be able to go and adjust contrast and/or brightness settings
