Hi there

If it is a DLP Projector it could be the Packlight Pipe Module that needs repairs.

Basically this part has 4 small mirrors facing each other and this normally happens when one of the mirrors come loose.

Very cheap to repair

Shut down after 30 seconds


Many projectors shut down if they cannot find anything attached to them.
Make sure you have a computer attached and sending an image out to it before you hit the projector reset button again.
It's a bit like the chicken and the egg since some laptops won't send an image out the cable unless it senses a projector, and the projector shuts down if it does not detect an incoming signal fast enough.

The image is very dim, even on maximum brightness. We are considering replacing the bulb, but bulbs for this projector are very expensive and we suspect that since there is some image, the bulb is not the...


Yes, as bulbs age they will begin losing brightness. Most projectors have a bulb life hour clock, that measures the number of hours a bulb has been used. Usually you can pull that up within the menu of the projector. Also that particular model has what is called "Eco-Mode" and when engaged dims the bulb by 25% to cut down on power consumption.

Typical life for a lamp in that projector is:

3000 hours on Normal mode
6000 hours on Eco mode

You can expect a brightness loss of 50% when you are approaching end of a lamps life.

Did you let the projector sit with that slide on for a while? If so, what you have is called burn-in and it is when the image gets kinda locked into the LCD, and it will show up as the LCD get warmer. If you still have a warranty, I would return it for a new one, and make sure that the images used on it don't remain fixed for a long period of time. Hope this helps!

Eiki LC SVGA 870. on screen the image edges are blurred and the green colour edging can be seen


It sounds like a polariser lens has failed, if so it may be cheaper to purchase a new projector than have it repaired.

Hope I was of assistance to you

Image problem


IF I understand the problem from the limited info in your question, the problem is a distorted picture on whatever surface [probably a wall, or screen] onto which the image is projected.

With all lenses, the axis [centerline of the lens projected] MUST be absolutely PERPENDICULAR [in both the vertical and horizontal planes] to the perfectly plane [flat] surface onto which the image is projected.

IF for example, the projector is mounted in a rear corner of the room, and the camera is aimed downward and to one side to project the image on the center of the opposite wall, or a screen located there, the image will be distorted. It will be larger on one edge [fartherist from the lens] and smaller on the opposite [nearest] edge.

If it is non-perpendicular in only one axis, then two opposite edges will be different lengths, and if out of perpendicular in two axis then no edges will be the same length.

The solution to this problem is that the center axis of the lens must be perpendicular to the surface projected on, in both vertical and horizontal axis.

No image


try switching your input source and make sure you select S Video. Also you can try to feed a composite (RCA - Yellow Cable) into it and see if you get an image. Are you able to get an image/blank screen? Can you access the menu and see it?
