Question about Sony VPL PX40 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Two problems, first the menu appears to be burned into the projection, the bulb has less than 100 hours. Second when black is supposed to be projected it projects blue?

The menu appears to be "burned" into the projected image.

Why would the color black be replaced with the color blue, is some setting off or what would cause this?

You have a bad lcd, you would probabaly have some blue lite leakage also. Any lcd projector should not be left on the same image for long periods, it wears out the pixels that control the lite thru. The blue lcd is usually the culprit.

How can i fix the brightnees in my 61md10


there is a menu setting for best pix or longer lamp life.
Also, turn up brightness of picture settings(different menu)
Also use daylight setting, vibrant, (different menu).
Bulbs dim over time and dust can accumulate on projector lens, mirrors and (not so much on mine) back of screen.
New lamps tend to melt a plastic lens in light engine, a dark shadow may start to appear upper left or center. this started to happen to me with new bulb, (Ebay O.E.M. supposedly $114). I switched back to original lamp hopefully to slow the burn till I can tacklle a repair. Take a look at this website. Hope that helps.

Turn tv on, sound comes on but no picture, power light blinks,


The clear bulb located back left side needed to be replaced. Too much heat causes the bulb to burn out. Simple fix. One screw to open door to bulb compartment. Two screws to remove bulb assembly. Thank goodness for extended service warranty which paid for it. This is the second one in three years. At the price of $200 for bulb and $100 for trip and labor, this is not an inexpensive fix. Anyone purchasing a projection tv should get an extended warranty.

Colors are off after auto adjust


I seem to have found the solution (and the cause, perhaps?) for this problem!

I was having the EXACT same problem with a monitor I'm repairing for a friend. The capacitors on the power supply board were blown (CapXon capacitors, who'd've guessed), which was keeping it from powering up. After replacing the capacitors, the screen worked beautifully. But it had this weird yellow tint!

The strange part was that pure colors - red, green, blue - all appeared perfectly OK on screen. Curiously, the menus would show in the proper colors, except for one: the manual color adjustment menu, which illustrated "Blue" as a sort of off-green in the icon. Auto-Adjust would always fix the colors for a split second, then go back to yellow. Reset didn't fix it. Color reset didn't either. So, exactly the same problem as above.

The solution I found was hidden within the main menu itself, a sort of "easter egg". <b>Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power, and hold it down until the screen, and menu, appear</b>. There will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. Voila! PERFECT COLOR! Perhaps this menu was accessed by accident, and calibrated to an incorrect color key. But now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!

Hope this helps some people, it sure saved my ****! ;)
