Question about Mitsubishi XL8U Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

I have a Mitsubishi xl8u projector, with approx 2000 hrs max on its first lamp. Of late, the projected image has attained a blue tinge to its edges which is getting progressively worse and seems to be taking over the whole screen. I am afraid to invest in a new lamp in case the problem lies within the actual machine itself. Is this an indication that the lamp is nearing its end? Or is it even more serious? I would be grateful for your help in this matter. Cheers. Bob

Hi Bob

This most definitelly NOT the lamp.

It is unfortunatelly your Mainboard that is at fault , and will either need repair or replacement as this will only get worse as time passes.

Hope this is of help !

Why is the Status Light on my Mitsubishi XL8U flashing red? My projector is still working but the status light flashes red.


With out knowing the state of the power LED, my best guess is the Status light is solid red and telling you to purchase a replacement lamp before the current one dies. Attached is a chart that will show you the errors possible depending on the LED statuses:

Model XG-E650UB. I have connected it to my laptop computer. But no video. If I do the same to a monitor, I get video.


Make sure your input on the projector is set correctly. Those are old projectors which take a max resolution of 800x600 ( I Think it's been about 5 years since i've seen one ) so on your pc, right click on the desktop, goto properties, settings and crank your screen's resolution right down to 800x600 or 640x480 and press the sync? button on the projector and see how you go.
Happy projecting!

The XL8U will tell you when the lamp needs replacement. There is a yellow box that will appear telling you so. The lamp is easy to replace, the model number is VLT-XL8LP.

Hi terry2421

No this is not the bulb. You will have to get the Mainboard repaired at a service provider. Losing signal and a discolouration showing up is a clear indication of a faulty Mainboard.

Get a quote first , because some service providers overcharge on these sort of repairs. The most you should pay is $150.

Yellow tinged edges


Your problem is most likely your Blue and Green lens' inside the light engine. It's not something you can replace yourself. I worked for Philips for 14 yrs. repairing the LCD projectors the last 6 Yrs. Call philips and get the number of an ASC in your area that has repaired projectors.
