3m S50/X50 - purplish hue

Hi,

We have a purplish hue showing up on screen. I work for the Illinois Department of Public Health. So far I have not been able to correct the problem. We are using the RGB1 connection as we always do and using the same laptop. There are 550 hours of time on the lamp. The filter has been cleaned. What could be causing the purplish hue and is there a fix for it?

Thank you.

    Thank you this worked. In the meantime we finally got a hold of a support person at 3M. They also said use a new vga (rgb) cable. That fixed the problem. The older cable does get a lot of abuse, it is used in a conference room where it is connected and disconnected to different laptops. Over the 4 years we have used it, it finally gave out.



    Excellent help, thank you.

Hi Larry

Try using a different RGB cable , if this doesn't fix the problem you will have to get the Mainboard of the Projector either repaired or replaced.

Cannot reset lamp timer as will not project. Replaced the lamp in my 3m X50, bulb came right on. I had to shut it down before reseting the lamp timer. Now will not light up so that I can navigate the...


It does not sound like resetting the lamp timer is what is keeping the projector from throwing an image. Try walking through the steps of the installation backwards to remove the bulb completely. Then reinstall the bulb again from scratch making sure everything is seated properly. If it powers up again just remember to set the clock back on the bulb.
