You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.

    Trust me, I took a thousand of these calls before. This is the fix



    If your projection appears too red or pink, when connected to a computer, please follow the instructions below to resolve this issue:

    Please ensure you have the standard remote control (not to be confused with the Presentation Remote Control) that came with your projector:

    1. Power the projector on. At this point, it does not need to be connected to a computer.

    2. Using the standard remote control, choose MENU.

    3. Ensure IMAGE is selected, and click ENTER.

    4. Ensure the INPUT SIGNAL is set to COMPUTER.

    5. Once COMPUTER is selected, click MENU to exit the projector's menu.

    6. The issue should now be resolved.

If you already have tried using an entirely different cable, and still provide you with a pink hue let try some of this steps
1. Turn on projector without connecting to any source (computer, dvd player) Make sure that you can clearly see the blue screen and access the menus otherwise this is considered an issue with the hardware and you need to contact Epson for options on getting a replacement if its within 2-yr warranty otherwise they'll referring you to nearby certified service center in your area
2. Since you already have tried a different cable, try it on a different computer as well just to properly isolate the issue Marrie is right that it usually issue like this is caused by a faulty VGA cable or VGA port
3. Try using a different source DVD player using either an RCA cable or an HDMI cable. You may also want to try using the S-video cable this is to determine if it is the port on the projector or port on the source is causing the issue

Hi Connie9658

If you say changed out cable - did you use an entirely different cable - as this pink colour 99% of the time is caused by a faulty cable.

Try this first:

>Disconnect all sources/cable connected and power on.
>On its own it must project "EPSON BLUE"

Still pink ? Re-seat the lamp (careful it's hot)

Projected image too small


Did you replace the lamp with the EXACT type that was in the projector prior to changing it? Sounds like there is difference in lamps.

My Epson EMP-S1 projector shows pink color with VGA input only, ok with video input and menu screen. What can be the problem?


With the VGA you have a bad cable or a bad input jack. I would bet on the cable first. You are missing the green or the blue on the screen and that is why the red/pink is more pronounced now.

My Epson proxima is displaying pink. I did reset and replace cables and bulb. Any suggestions


I've seen the screen go pink when the video input is set to the wrong type (composite instead of RGB). Try each input type to see if it goes away.

Epson powerlite s4 projector is pink


I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the red color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the red panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image. This causes a nice red hue to the whole screen.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

Display is not the right color


This generally means there is a fault with the cable between pc and projector. If you have a spare VGA lead try it and see if that fixes it.

Also make sure that the cable is tightly pushed onto both ends
