Generally speaking, if you have discoloration that changes during use, you will find that it's due to one or more of your cables either not being connected properly or being damaged.

The first thing I need to ask is whether or not you have this same discoloration when the projector is not connected to anything. If so, the problem is internal and I can't really help there except to tell you to contact a technician.

However, if the image color is fine when the projector is not connected to anything, the problem is definitely a cable or connection issue. That being said, try the following steps:

1) Check all your connections and make sure everything is firmly connected. Discoloration can occur from your cables only making partial contact. Also, while you do this, observe the ends of the cables themselves to make sure they are undamaged.

2) Flex your cables, starting at one end and moving slowly to the other. If you have a damaged wire, the image should change color/flicker/or even disappear entirely when you reach the damaged portion.

3) If that did not work, replace your cabling with a spare. If that solves your problem, then the old cable is damaged/defective and should be disposed of.

4) Normally, I would tell you to also check the settings in the menu as well, but if the image changes color during use, it's not a settings issue.

I hope that helps.

Installed new color wheel not working correctly


Hi danny,

I also replaced the color wheel in my EP739 after the old one disintegrated suddenly. Colours were then all over the place. Actually, it looked like each colour channel was displaying all the colours of the rainbow!

Here is the procedure I used to solve the problem - maybe not as elegant as Marrie's solution, but it will not cause any damage, will most likely solve the problem, and you will be able to get everything back to the way it was if it doesn't work:
  1. Have the projector running and displaying a stationary picture. The right sort of picture to use is one that has a full range of brightness values from near-black to peak white. I used my lap-top as the source. Also, this way you can compare the projector's picture with the picture on the lap-top.
  2. Press the power button once. "Power off the lamp" dialogue box appears. Hold down the left arrow button until the service menu appears (takes about 8 seconds).
  3. Using the up/down arrow buttons, scroll down to "Color Setting" and press "enter".
  4. Scroll up to "Color Wheel Index". Make a note of the existing setting for later reference. You can change the Index setting over a range of 100 to 550 by holding down the left/right arrow buttons. As the setting changes, the colour rendition will slowly change, and at some point the colours will come right. Note that the changes are quite slow. Find the lower and higher settings where colour aberrations just start to appear, and set the Index mid-way between.
  5. If this doesn't fix the problem, return the Index setting to original. My original setting was 354 and the new setting was 461.
I do not advise touching any other settings in the service menu unless you have access to a service manual and know what you are doing.

Good luck!
