Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Color Problem I purchased a used Ask Protima m2+ projector and everything works fine except the color red which appears very dark, close to black.  I am using an older ibm thinkpad laptop with Windows 98.  I have reset the projector to factory settings and examined all cables and pins.  I am using an m1 to dvi computer cable.  Any suggestions?

I think that projector used three different LCD panels with red, blue and yellow. You probably have a damaged red LCD panel, and if so, it is not worth getting the projector fixed. Those panels were really expensive back then.
I once had that red problem with a projector and it turned out to be a bad connection on one end of the "computer to projector" cable. Borrow one from a friend and see if it solves the problem.

Why is my Sony 3lcd projector not showing the color red?


I hope its on warranty because that sounds like a circuit board problem. Was the replaced lamp the original specification?

you didn't provide age of your projector, but it likely is about dead, and not worth fixing again.

Red doesn't seem to be working properly, but doesn't appear to be a bad projector.


The red CRT tube is failing. They are rated at 3000 hrs of operation. Check the red CRT face to see if there is a lot of dirt on it or has a discoloration on the inside of the coolant chamber. These tubes are scarce and expensive. You may want to consider a new TV.

Need replacement color wheel for 3300MP, where can I purchase one?


I had the same issue and it is impossible to find a new one and Dell is extremely expensive on repairs. You need to find a used Dell on Ebay or an Infocus X2. The X2 has the same color the only catch is that there is black timing marker on the motor that is the wrong position for the Dell projectors. I was able to compare the broken one to the new one and moved it to the proper position and everything worked fine. There are a lot more X2 projectors out there on Ebay.
