Question about Hitachi CP-S225 Multimedia Projector

Red flickering spots all over the screen

When the unit is on, I now get the whole screen covered in red spots that flicker, which makes the picture very hard to see, especially when a dark image is displayed

    I have already tried that, but the red dots are there even when you just turn the projector on.

    I have the same problem also. It was telling me to replace the lamp then reset lamp timer, I have done this, with a new $500 lamp and the picture quality is better than it was but I am still getting red flickering spots.

the regulator for the Inverter supply would be the first thing i would suspect if the voltage drops then picks up again. Then I would also check the transformers on the Inverter that are in line with the area of the screen that flickers.

Dim/dark Picture


The model indicated here is rear projection that uses three picture tubes.

If rear cover is removed--can be done by removing entire front screen but there are hazards like damaging the screen---with rear cover removed clean the lens in the three round cyclinders which point up and are hard to miss===

They are the light source for the picture---there is if you look up inside and to the rear a mirror but unless grimy it rarely needs cleaning.

clean the lens with a lens cloth or even a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

Red Lines through picture when screen is dark, back ground has a red tint. On my 48 "Sony Rear Projection" TV


You can try adjusting the Red color output. (Very touchy adjustment)

If you take off the front cover/speaker cover, there should be a access panel. Behind that, there should be a small square black box with 6 screws on it. This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are located)

It sounds more like you may need less red in the mix. There is a screw for each color. R, G, and B. Do not mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.'

Go to an unused input where the screen should be dark. Barely turn the red down in a dark room so that the red spot is at the same level as the Blue and Green.

Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it.
Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.

Do not turn any of these up too high or damage may occur and the TV may detect a short and shut off.

I have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.

I hope this helps! Just be careful.

Picture is very blue most times.This is a light blue, but makes viewing difficult. Also before this issue came about, you could see a faint set of arcing lines running across screen especially when screen...


You can try adjusting the Blue color output. (Very touchy and dangerous adjustment)

If you take off the front cover/speaker cover, there should be a access panel. Behind that, there should be a small rectangular black box with 6 screws on it. This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are located) If there is no front panel, It may be located on or near the flyback (High Voltage) transformer on your model accessible from the back instead.

It sounds like you may need less Blue in the mix. There is a screw for each color. R, G, and B. Do not mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.' They may have silicone over them to prevent them from moving. If so, you will need to remove it and put more on when adjustment is complete.

Go to an unused input where the screen should be dark. Barely turn the blue down in a dark room so that the Blue spot is at the same level as the Red and Green.

Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it.
Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.

Do not turn any of these up too high or damage may occur to the tubes. If you turn them up too much, the TV may detect a short and shut off. this is a normal fail safe. These only need VERY slight adjustments.

I have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.

I hope this helps! Just be careful. Once again - LETHAL HIGH VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT WHEN UNIT IS ON!!!!!!

Screen blinks and then goes out. tap on side and causes flickers


sure sounds like loose solder joints, look for them in the deflection circuit, just find the hard plastic encapsulated body with the thick red wire sticking out of it thats where usually the loose solder joints develop.
