This could be one of 2 things. It could have a bad color wheel or there is a setting problem in the unit. If the video mode is not set correctly like NTS or PAL it can give a black and white image.
The other could be your color wheel has failed. Did the unit make any noises before the color went out?
Some times the color wheels will make noises when the age before they crack or break from the heat.
I believen you can pull the lamp out and with the lamp out try and power the unit up, look into the little hole the lamp shines into and see the color wheel spinning. when you first plug it in and unplug it the wheel should spin and you should see the colors change. DONT TOUCH THE COLOR WHEEL they are fragile and can break easy. Some get more brittle over time from the heat of the lamp.
If the projector is not getting a source it might go on standby maybe check where you plug it in.
Projectors require quite a bit of power and should be on a single loop/outlet not hooked up to a powerbar with more things on it.
I had the same problem!
The problem is dust on the color wheel. At side of the color wheel is a wire connector attached wit one small screw, with a cottom tip clean the small lens and surface, that's all.
Put the connector and screw and it will OK!!
This error is to do with the light tube - 4 retangular mirror's just after the colour wheel. The dark band is where the bonding for the mirror's is failing, the spring clip holding the assembely inplace pushes the top mirror down slightly causing the dark band as mentioned.
To fix this use a high temp glass glue and very careful clean, reposition the mirror's (in the correct position). Allow to cure fully then re-assemble the unit.
I have only have had to do this twice the 1st time using a sub standard adhesive and dark return a few weeks later. The 2nd I did some reseach and have a quailty glass glue. The X2 has been fine for many years now with no sign of the band re showing.
hope that has helped you.?
ps. if you are rubbish at doing stuff like this - just don't try, it's fiddly and requires a good understand of what you are trying to achieve. A perfect retangular tube with parrallel sides...!!!
