Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 Multimedia Projector

The picture suffers from colour fringing

I have a homr projector set-up in my back room. However, lately the picture suffers from colour fringing (especially dark images) and after a set time the colour goes very wrong with the picture looking something like an Andy Warhol painting- as though there is no red part of the image. I replaced the lamp but the problem has persisted.
The projector is an Infocus IN80EU.

Either the color wheel has lost a segment or the colorwheel index needs to be adjusted in the hidden menu using the color ramps test screen.

Haze


Rather hard to properly diagnose this one off such a short description, but...

1/ Bulb OK, not over hours or otherwise damaged?
2/ Is it constant for all images, just a general coloured haze, not a strange "shadow", "ghost" or "fringe" that alters depending on what you display?
3/ Lens nice and clean?
4/ Surface you're projecting it onto also clean and at least nominally white?
5/ Input cables all fine at both ends and work correctly with other output devices (TV and/or computer monitor)?
6/ Haze still in place with different cables and input devices?
7/ Does the projector regularly show the same static image for extended periods?

The VT460s were buggers for suffering from internal LCD and filter glass issues if allowed to overheat, and with image burn-in, especially if fitted with unusual lenses (e.g. extreme short-throw); I've had to do internal cut-and-swap surgery on a few of them before, with donor image elements from projectors that died due to other problems. I can't say the one VT470 has shown any sign of similar, but the two VT480s are worse if anything. So it's entirely possible that we just got the one good VT470 out of the whole production run. As intimated by the above, it could be anything out of a failing bulb, dirty lens (or internal image element) glass, image burn-in, LCD/filter damage from overheating (and mind that being turned on showing a "blank" screen for ages can cause a similar effect, as all of the bulb's 200 watts of light energy is then being completely absorbed by three thumbnail-sized pieces of liquid crystal... the bulb doesn't turn off unless the projector is shut down completely!), problems with internal circuitry, dodgy cables, unsuitable projection surfaces, or problems with the devices feeding images to it. It really is a minefield until it can be narrowed down.

Unfortunately dim image is normally due to a defective lamp assembly. I'd recommend removing the lamp and inspecting its condition. You'll notice black corrosion build up or a bubble is starting to form around the filament of the bulb if it is what's causing the dim image.

Turn the brightness up slightly and turn the contrast on the highest setting. There may also be settings to control wether your projectin on a wall or on a screen. Make sure these settings are correct to your setup.

Dark horizontal bands appear on projection


Your matrix is failing. If the unit is under warranty, send it back.

The matrix is the bit that allows light to come through of each colour. If its failing one colour won't get through. If the circuitry is failing, more than one colour wont get through.

Pink Edges in Photos


It is called 'purple fringing' or chromatic aberration. It is quite common with digital cameras, especially those with small sensors. Sending the camera in for repair would not help at all. It can be removed, quite labouriously, in photoshop. Usually it is very seldom so obvious that it would require corrective work. When it is, it is often only in a small part of the image making it not that time consuming to fix in photoshop.
