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.

Noticed a yellow hue in the centre of the image projected by BOTH of my second-hand Sony VPL PX40's.


Bit of a common problem with Sony projectors of the era that they often had problems with fading and/or cracking of one or more the LCD panels - especially the blue ones for some reason, leading to the type of problem you are experiencing. No point in swapping components either as they will both have similar faults - although replacing an LCD in a video projector is almost impossible without the manufacturers jigs to mechanically align them afterwards anyway...

We have used our projector for years, but are now having a problem with the picture. The picture that shows on the screen is shown in a red/purple hue. Any suggestion on how to fix?


Hi,

Are you using component video inputs? You could check the green connectors on both ends of the video inputs. They sometimes develop a poor connection. I would not throw a lot of money at it. It was a good projector in its day but they sell used on ebay or craigslist for $100 - $300 now.

Hope this helps,

Projector is working but intensity problem,, display is not good


Have you changed the brightness setting or put the projector into eco mode. ?

Also see what mode your dvd player is in (same on projector) they can have film modes which reduce the brightness.

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 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 !

Projector automatically shuts off immediately after turning it on


If your comfortable w/surface mount troubleshooting and soldering, download the service manual from elsewhere online. Part of the troubleshooting tree for this type of problem is to check the surface mount fuses on the underside on the Main PWB (schematic page 1/8). On mine, the 12V surface mount fuse, F3004 (2.3A) was open (quadrant C1 on the schematic). Replaced it, reassembled the projector (3 interlocks don't 'cha know) and it came up just fine.
