I also have the same problem -- the fix is to replace the optical block ( Internal lamp engine ) which is a $1,100 part. I just purchased a used projector for half the price of the part.

I have the same projector, but my problem is with red.
A replacement prism assembly is about $2k.
If you can get your hands on another projector for cheap, that's your only hope. You can swap out the blue lcd panel from your prism with someone else... it's a bit of mucking around, but worth it of you can.

That will reset lamp timer in 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.

now press power/standby key to ON the projector and check lamp hours
