Hi, If you have tried other video sources & still get the same results. It sounds like the motor that turns the color wheel is going bad, These motor's run from 5,000 to 10,000 rpm depending on model & are usually the first point of failure in a color wheel based DLP projector, If you don't count the lamp.
Overtime it may begin to make a squealing noise. Usually you can find replacement motors on the internet by searching the part number printed on the motor google is great for searching part numbers.

it's chirping because it's trying to keep in sync with the dmd chip. for the refresh rate, go into the menu and first reset the settings to factory default. if this doesn't clear it up, try matching the signal.

The sound came from the switching power supply and the lamp ballast circuitary. You need to replace the color wheel sensor, I can fix it.

LP600 - Grainy picture, very poor quality


Single chip DLP projectors use a spinning color wheel between the lamp and the DMD (mirror chip) to produce colors. If the wheel rotation/synchronization is disturbed, colors will not be displayed correctly.
In my case it looks like the wheel became un-synchronized, probably because the projector was dusty/dirty inside (a light senor is used to detect the wheel position), resulting in a grainy, slightly flickering image.
I simply blew out the components with a can of 'Dust-off' and, using a small tool, rotated the color wheel by hand to make sue it wasn't rubbing or jammed.
I reassembled & started the projector and the image was back to normal.

Color problem after warm up.


The probelm is caused by either a bad color wheel sensor, color wheel or formatter board. I have the new redesigned sensor assembly and color wheels that I can sell. It is best if you send me the projector for proper diagnosis.

Image flickers and colors off


I have the same problem as philvo. I was watching, the projector was operating normally, I heard a snap, there was a flash of light behind me I believe, and my Mitsubishi XD300U projector went to a black and white picture. That is all it will show now. All lights show normal operation. I would like to know if it is worth getting repaired. Does anyone have any ideas?
