VPL-HS60 Scene Dimming

I have about 900 hours on this Sony VPL-HS60, lately the whole picture just becomes a little dimmer then swiches back to the correct brightness, it seems like this happens when the projector is on for a while (after an hour or so). Does the lamp need to change? anybody has any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi 3mad

This is quite a sticky one as this could either be the lamp or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

And the bad thing is that the only way to be certain , would be to first replace the lamp and if this continues the Ballast as well.

I would suggest you to replace the lamp first , as this is never a waste , you could always keep it as a spare and 99% of the time it is the lamp will give this kind of problem.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

The fleshtones of people on the screen is blue


This is not really a solution but when mine does this I switch the input to the projector to another video source and then back again. this usually makes it go away. If you find a better solution I would appreciate hearing it. Thanks.

To reset the lamp timer:
1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual).

Problems using HDMI


I've had a problem with the HDMI connector, had it replaced twice while my VPL-HS60 was under warranty. This connector seems very fragile, the first time I was not getting any signal from HDMI, so the repair shop ordered a new connector and replaced it, a couple of days after the it was not working again and found that they had to solder it back on the board. If you're not getting a signal from HDMI anymore that could be your problem.
