Question about Sony VPL HS10 Multimedia Projector

Patch of purple "scribble" lines on corner of screen

A patch of what looks like purple crayon scribble lines, pixelated, has suddenly appeared on the bottom right corner of the screen, from my vpl hs10. (No crayons in the house! and it's not on the screen!) I've changed the filter, blown the dust out, cleaned the lens and cover, etc. with no change what-so-ever. It appears to be more internal. Any ideas? I have a very similar problem. I have a green cross-hatch pattern, taking up about 5% of the total screen, running mostly vertical on the left side of the picture. I want to fix the projector if at all possible. I bought the projector a few years ago for about $2500, but I also bought the short-throw lens for another $1000 (which is probably dedicated to this projector only). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a common problem on a faulty Mainboard of a Projector.

Not much you can do about it except repair or replace the Mainboard

Image is bright but there is a slight issue - on the left hand side a purple line displays vertically. Anybody knows why is this fault appeared and how could it be solved.


There is three LCD in the projector red, green and blue. If green LCD make any fault mean line or dot or dots then screen show these line or dot in purple color:
If line is very straight and sharp edges then green LCD is faulty and need to be replaced.
If line is not straight and faded edges then some thing in LCD block so your projector need service

ive got the same problem if showing a white background. i can see parts that are a bit purple...
when i got a new lamp today the problem is not as intense anymore. when i looked at the lamp i was able to see some dirt that had been burned into the glas in front of the bulb. it had approximately the same color. since i just bought a bulb and installed it into the case of the first lamp, which doesnt have that color burned into the glas, the problem is way smaller than before.

im not sure if thats the reason - but might be a solution...

Blue tinting appearing on the right side of screen on vpl-es1 projector


A warning in the manual was given as to be carefull when using this projector with games as some parts of the screen will not move, just like if you watch Tv on it and there is a channel logo in one corner that doesn't move! It burns the display like it would on a pc monitor if no screen saver set. This is not a problem you can fix, that is perminant damage to the lcd in the projector!! S Platt

Patch of purple "scribble" lines on corner of screen


Sounds like the same problem that I just started having. Although my scribble lines are yellow. Personally I'm thinking that one of the three LCD panels has cracked internally and will need to be replaced.
