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)

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.
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.
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
