Has the grainy picture not always been there? As this should happen on projectors with a very dark scene especially depending on the source. Has the bulb ever been replaced?
Thanks,
Lee

    1. Adjust color, tint, color temperature,brightness, or contrast in the menus.
    2. Pick another gamma setting
    3. Pick another color space
    Keep me posted,

There may be some problem with your picture tube else try this that looks like retrace lines. Anyway, you should try to adjust screen pot not focus pot. Make sure you are turning blue screen pot (there are 3 focus pots and 3 screen pots) and do it slowly. If you turn it too much, it will affect your grayscale

Our 57H81 is about 10 years old and we can hardly see the picture on tv/movies especially - when a dark scene is shown. Do we need to perform maintenance or change out the projection lights to get the...


You can try cleaning the lens/mirrors of the set with a lint free cloth and a cleaning liquid made for cleaning glass. The dark image can sometimes be caused due to dust on these parts. If that does not work then I am afraid that you need to purchase replacement CRTs(the three tubes at the back of the set). Each of them produce one color - Red, Green and Blue and all 3 have to be replaced to resolve the problem, unless you can visually identify a malfunction with one of the tubes(If one of tubes is a lot dimmer than the other 2).

I,ve got a red spot in the screen i replaced the bulp but stil have the problem


it is most likely a burned polarizing filter. There is a polarizing filter on the blue light channel and another on the red channel. When black, or other dark colours are displayed, the red polarizing filter is supposed to block ALL of the red light being projecter. If the filter is burned, some light slips through and creates a red tinge on the projected image. If the red tinge only appears on dark images, but is absent when the images is completely white, a damaged filter is likely the problem.

Seems its hard to buy them. Best bet is probably buying a broken projector from ebay and stealing the filters out of it.

IXD 420U projector takes a long time to project and has pink ima


If possible, try to replace the VGA cable between the projector and the computer. A bent or broken pin, or a damaged wire, can prevent the blue or green (or both) portions of the picture from being displayed. The result is a reddish/pinkish picture.

As for the long time to project an image, this could be an extended warm-up time. How old is the bulb in the projector? Does the projector have an option to display the hours used and/or remaining on the bulb? Bulbs do have a finite life, and when they near the end of their service life, they can become more difficult to start.

Hope this helps!

TV picture is red.


Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

Dark scenes are impossible to see


This is a fundamental limit of Ti DLP. The part can not reproduce low grey scale, so low light film is dominated by artifacts. It helps to sit farther away from the screen. The color shift is caused by a factory tollerance on the color wheel, but there is no user adjustment for it.

Dlp has dark blue areas on screen


Have you tried magic focus? if that doesn't work
replace the pcb convergence board,, It costs $96 and takes 10 minutes to replace you will have to manually line up your convergence afterward as the settings go to factory default. Everyone that owns this set has or will have to replace this part within 3 years
