Question about Canon LV-LP12 Projector Lamp for LV-S1, LV-X

2 Answers

Big Green Bar

I've got a Canon LV-S1 projector.

It works, but it developed a big green horizontal bar across the top of the picture. It's more noticeable when the background is dark.

I've adjusted all the settings, brightness, contrast, color and tint. Nothing helps.

Has anybody heard of this? Is it repairable, inexpensively??

    We tried a new cable. That didn't work. Still green.

    We even tried it without the cable. With the blue banner boot-up screen the green line is barely visible but still there. Whenever there's a screen with a dark or black background, the green is very noticable.

    We've gotten some repair quotes from local camera shops. They start around $300 to fix it. All are recommending we put in a new lamp that costs around $400!!! A light bulb costs $400???!!! So that's now $700. New projectors are around $750 to $800. There's a no brainer on replacement over fixing the old Canon.

    We're looking into a replacement and keeping this as a spare as long as it holds out.

    Thanks for your help!!

Hi Tom017

Does this green bar show even when there is no signal inserted into the Projector ?

If it doesn't then you can try using a different cable - that should solve this for you.

If it doesn't then you might be in for a quite expensive Mainbaord repair or replacement.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

    Hi there

    As mentioned above you will be looking at a Mainboard replacement then.

Canon LV-S1 New bulb but won't power up

Have you cleaned the filters? In this situation, the fan and power shuts down even before the bulb lights up and heats up the unit, but perhaps the unit can detect clogged filters.

You can download the manual here if you don't have one. Instructions for cleaning the filters are on page 37.

Lv-s1 canon projector

Hi there

Open up the unit and replace the fuse on the Powersupply ( where the AC inlet sits )

If this doesn't do the trick you will have to replace the Powersupply itself.

But most of the time it is only the fuse that has gone.
