    I have a faded blue colour radiating our from the centre of the screen. I thought that the bulb needed changing but on changing the bulb the blue colour remains. The picture can still be seen but the colour is far from perfect.

I had the same problem with a Sony VPL CS1. It's not the mainboard, but the blue filter - cost to repair runs around $500 US.
Hope that helps.

Hi Will

This sounds like it could be a faulty Mainboard.

Hello.. My projector came on minutes ago now the light is just blinking. Can you please help? I have a Sony vpl-es7


You might check the following:

* signal is going to the input. If not, does the menu come up?
* air flow is ok. Projectors don't run well if they are hot and can't breathe

Why does my Mitsubishi hc5500 projector only display a blue screen but still play sound?


The unit may need cleaning. The lamp will shut off if the air flow is blocked by dust.

I connect new LG Blu -Ray On my Sony Cineza Projector.but only blue colour on the screen ,what is the problem here?


You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

My projector shows a blue tint to the right of the screen. I am afraid that it might be the blue LCD panel gone bad. What might the diagnosis be? Sony VPL-HS51


Does the blue tint show up as small rectangular pixel shapes when you get up close to the screen when focused properly. This would indicate a blue LCD panel fault. If it's fuzzy then possibly a blue polarizer overheating

Screen is blue in colour though still has picture. Have changed bulb but it was one left with projector when we purchased house so unsure if new/used. Have read other blogs and they say LCD faulty -...


Is the whole screen bluish in colour or just areas. If you look closely at the screen are the bluish areas composed of rectangular pixel shapes. If it is then the blue lcd panel may have dead pixels, otherwise it's a glass polarizer plate that may be degraded due to aging.

How do I connect the Sony LCD VPL-CX63 projector to my desktop computer (not a laptop)? We can not get the image from the computer screen to project.


You probably have to lower the resolution on your PC before you connect the projector. The frequense also can´t be to hight. Start with 800*600 at first then on increase if it works.

Blue Haze on screen Sony cineza vpl-hs50 projector


Its your blue polarizer going bad. This happens over time due to the excessive heat generated in the projector. The main problem is that your projector has organic LCD panels that degrade over time and in turn degrades your blue polarizer. The same thing happened to my sanyo Z2. It took 5 years for it to show on my Sanyo because I only use the projector for sports and movies. not daily tv watching. In any case, it isnt worth it to spend the money ti fix it...jut put tat towrds a new projector. The latest crop of LCD projectors almost all use in-organic LCD panels that last much longer. Hope this helps.

The left side of the screen is blueish?


The blue or yellow haze problem in this projector is because of two factors. 1) Dust buildup inside the optics and 2) Fading colour filters used in the internal optical process.

Inside the projector the white light from the lamp is split into three distinct colours of red, green and blue. Each colour illuminates their own monochrome LCD. Those LCDs are mounted on a prism that combines the separate images and displays the result you see via the lens.

The optical process to split the light up inside the projector is fairly complex and involves many light filters and mirrors to direct the light to the appropriate lcds. Those filters and lenses accumulate dust and also fade over time due to heat and other environmental factors.

I know that sharp sells replacement filters at $100 a piece. I do not know if Hitachi sells replacements.

To remove the dust and change filters you have to take apart the projector in a fairly complex way. I do not suggest that the average user do this. Good luck!
