Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 5700 Multimedia Projector

Fuzzy images I use my projector to reflect on the Smartboard in my classroom. It is now projecting some fuzzy colors in the bottom left corner. The colors seem to somewhat jump and move. Is the projector bulb going out or does something need cleaning? Thanks so much. Linda Ashley

    I know that a layer of dust is coating the interior of the lens and perhaps the peice of galss inside the unit that reflects the image (the swivel part). i tried using canned air, and it got the dust off the parts it could reach, but i would like some help as to how to take apart the projector to reach those parts i cant get to. i know once this is done the picture quality will be much more clean and sharp.

Could be a bit of dust or fuzz inside of the lens element or by the DLP chip. The first order of business is to remove the lamp and look at the condition inside the projector. If it is, as I suspect, very dusty as no doubt the classroom is a very common "dusty" environment, then you may have some cleaning to do. Be careful not to try and blow out the unit too forcefully as this can damage some of the internal components and could force the dust further into the unit. It is always better to gently swab out the interior or use an electronics vac instead of a blower.

Epson 822+ Projector still dim after replacing bulb


I'm not familiar with your specific model, but are the units LCD or DLP? What I've seen in LCD projectors used in schools, museums, etc. that are left-on for several hours per-day, is that the UV filters in the optical blocks will fail. They usually change to an amber-brown color and block most of the light. It's the equivalent to putting sunglasses on. Do the units also exhibit a greenish-yellow tint instead of proper color?

An image is produced in these projectors by passing color through three different LCD panels. One is a Red, one a blue, and the last one a purple. It sounds like the green panel is damaged. The only way to tell is to take it to an Epson authorized service center.

It is not the smartboard, lamp or the computer as well know, it's the projector itself. This may not work but you at least need to try press the auto adjust button on the projector and then adjust the clock/phase in the menu. If not you will need to send in to NEC it could by the color wheel. Usually they have a warranty for a couple of years.

The image from my cp x251 is uneven the top and right side are angled but the bottom and left side are straight and perfect on the screen.


this is a common problem with projection systems this is the reason that most screens are lined with black felt its non-reflective and works great to hide uneven edges also try balancing out the difference with the keystone adjustment

Yellow area in the projected image


Hello Media Man,

Looks like your projector has done it. Thats acommon trouble to ageing polirising lens, usually the blue. less blue, the green and red make up the yellowish image on the screen. The blue is bombarded with tremendous heat from the lamp and it fade and wash out. If its free, its worth replacing. Get quote for the poliriser; 2 pieces each color.
Good Luck.
