SOURCE: Projector displaying yellow tint in center of screen.

The yellow tint is probably coming from the lens. It could be that the glass is tempered or possibly just needs to be cleaned.

SOURCE: Projection has yellow tint

From your description, it sounds like a problem with the blue color. Green LCD=purple onscreen, Red=cyan(baby blue) onscreen, Blue LCD=yellow onscreen. It could be a lot of dust on the blue lcd panel, or worse, might be a burned polarizer filter behind the lcd panel due to excessive heat. If you can focus on the yellow and its tons of yellow specs, its dust. A burned filter however, must be replaced. A technician trained in projectors will have to do it. The filter material is glued to a thin glass panel and is replaced as a single filter. It's a very involved repair.

SOURCE: inFocus projector display has a blue color and

if these blemishes look like maybe its fuzz or something, you can remove the top cover and use compressed or canned air to blow out the area where you see 3 orange flat cables going under the main board into the lcd panels. blow it out good and be careful not to disconnect the cables as that can be a pain for the inexperienced. If this doesn't fix your problem, then I would say that the lcd panels have been burnt due to shutting the projector down improperly numerous times and no it is not worth repairing unless you get a known good light engine for less than the cost of a new projector plus labor-- unless you DYS.

Everything is yellow! It was working fine a week ago but when I went to do a presentation yestereday everything is yellow??? I tried adjusting the colors and I tried a second computer but yellow


hello,

what this indicate from the color display on the system mean that the display sensor (lens)in getting weak it need servicing or a replacement, to to this servicing you will have to unscrew (open) from the stroll then clean up the lens with little spirit solution on the surface with care allow the solution to dry up it self then reset the programming on it please while doing this you will have to be very careful with the wire connection around ,but if this fail then you will have to get a replacement on it

This are recommended fix is to replace the lens. You can generally find replacement parts at these websites:

www.projector.com
letsgodigital.org
comforu.com
technabob.com
techshout.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare.

Replacing a lens is not a difficult repair and can be accomplished by the average do-it-your self offer. If you decide to order the part and wish to repair this on your own

thank you and thanks for you sing fixya.

I have a Infocus Screen Play 5000 bulb has 324 hours the picture is light green.


try reflashing the firmware, check your cables by wiggling the ends coming out of the projector and watch the picture for any changes, if it goes to normal at any time, your cables are just worn out. if that doesn't do the trick, maybe your lcd polarizers are burnt, i really need a better description of the picture.

Yellow green display


you may have a bad cable. if it was an internal problem, the menu wouldn't be the correct color. you may also want to reset the settings to factory default, just to cover the resolution issue.

The tint changes colors, green to red to blue, etc. while it is on. What's wrong?


you have a problem with the main controller board. unfortunately, there are no replacements from infocus. sorry.

but try to clean and resolder the edge connector (looks like silver fingers) contacts on the power supply where it plugs into the green plug on the main board. the main board may be getting fluctuations in voltage due to poor contacts.

Display has a green tint to it tho it looks fine on the laptop.


A tinted image (whether green or another color) is almost always a symptom of a bad or damaged cable - or a loose cable connection. In your case, you'll likely need a new M1 to VGA cable (Part# SP-DVI-A-R).

Assuming that you've made sure that the cable connections are solid at both ends, there is a simple test to verify that this is a cable issue and not a costly projector issue. While the image is tinted green, open the menu. If the menu colors appear fine while the rest of the image is still tinted green it's the cable.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
