If the brightness of the screen is changing and there is flickering then you will need to have the LCD Inverter and LCD Backlight replaced.

I have an old Apollo Quantum 2521 Overhead Projector. The lamp is working, but it is creating a rainbow effect on the screen. Can you provide some help? Thankyou.

RBE or the RainBow Effect is a common phenomenon experienced by most projectors - generally worsens over time because of slower moving parts inside projector - by the sound of it the color wheel inside your projector could well be slowing down but this effect is quite common and in some people more than others...

Rainbows across screen

IF this is a projection tv of tube nature, you need the projection tubes degaussed. IF it is solid state, you have circuit board problems and that can get expensive...if not impossible when compared to the price of a new TV. BE very carefull of speaker placement near these tube if it is a projection tube type...get the speakers away from the sides of the tv, Turn it on and off several times. (it degausses itself everytime it is turned on)..and see if you see a lessening of the effect...if you do, then with time, this will go away.

Hope this Helped. -CA

Why does titanium white paint turn pink?

add drop of blue and this should solve the problem,

for future reference - what paint? aquarel? pastel? oil? acrylic? tempera?

solvent sometime can be a problem, if you use varnish - varnish naturally turns bit of yellow, sometime pinkish tint, but you need to check if solvents are compatible.

there is heaps of variables in paint mixes, you need to check purity of the pigment (rutile ore contamination's will tend to discolour pigment anything between brown and pink for example with the age), you need to check opacity of the paint (how transparent it is - background may cut through it and sublight it red), you need to check viscosity (light viscosity and dry pigment in wet on wet will "suck" paint from the background), all of these need to be check.

if you have more questions on the subject - you need to provide what medium you use and what is exactly effect.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

Strange rainbow.reenish type effect

Did you notice any better picture when you play a movie on a DVD player or using a flashdrive on this TV? Is the picture quality better? Or is it the same? Try to check another cable connection or try to play TV channel thru internet. The last option in this case is to show a TV mechanic for he would better understand which part to order.

Flickering blue sceen

If it's a Gateway XHD3000, I may be able to fix it for you
I believe the problem is in the same board that causing the full strobing screen problem.
Cost is 150 to repair the problem board if it is fixable. No charge if not fixable.
You will have to pay round trip shipping for the monitor and power supply to Pennsylvania.
