Question about NEC MultiSync MT830 Multimedia Projector

MT830 Color Convergence (Blue Left - Yellow Right)

MT830 suddenly developed vertical color alignment issues. Yellow is trimming everything on their right edge and Blue is trimming everything on the left edge. This is only affecting the vertical edging of objects. The horizontal edges of objects appear to be fine. convergence I think it is acutally the Blue that is off to the Left. I have been through the alignments for vertical with no change. I am able to turn brightness and contrast down to minimize the distinction of the yellow and blue edges, but you can still see them. Thanks for helping!

    Did anyone get anywhere with a fix to adjusting color convergence?

    I have an NEC MT1030+ that has a magenta shadow to the left and above objects in the picture. I cannot figure out how to get into the menu that has convergence in it?
    I have seen posts on "AVS" that talk about NEC projects having a 4digit code to enter after pushing the 'adjust' button. I have neither that button, or numerals to push for a code.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi, I have a similar problem with my LT 158 but the other way around - yellow to the left and blue to the right. Did you manage to get your problem sorted? If so I'd like to hear how to do it if possible.

    Where are the adjustments on the main video board of the projector for alignment of the three LCD screens,

Sometimes a bad cable can produce a delay in signal, if shift is only in horizontal, check cable grounds. Of course, also can be an optical problem, but first check that. And check if the problem occurs with menues (they dont pass througt external cable)

Time for a new projector, of course i could sugest a few diferent projectors but i think i will only suggest one since i dont know what your projectors main application is. in my poinion the pk20 LED projector by mitsubishi is a very nice inexpensive projector with a lamp life of over 20,000 hours and costing about the same price as one lamp replacement for most dlp projectors the mitsubishi pk20 LCD projector will last for a very long time and by then there will be a better model available and posibly be less expensive, i have found these projectors advertised from anywhere between $300USD and $700USD at regular retail price but i bet you can get one for less on eBay. GOOD LUCK and BEST WISHES!

Take a look here:,1697,1049289,00.asp "... The others, however, have lost portions or all of their blue channels. TI's theory is that the shorter wavelength and higher energy of the blue light apparently causes the organic polarizing material in the LCD to get lightburn much faster. TI showed us a damaged LCD panel that controlled blue light transmission, and there was a large spot in the center that was apparently burned out..."

You can try the following: switch the drum to another position for example to blue (Cyan). If the defect changes to blue color problem lies in the drum.

-contaminated ROS (laser assy).
DO NOT EXPOSE THE DRUM ASSEMBLIES more than 5 minutes to light. Cover them with paper or black plastic bag.

It does sound like this is an alignment problem of the blue LCD or a problem on the main board controlling it. I am not sure if this is a field adjustable unit. A call to the authorized service center should provide that answer.

Mitsubishi WS-65869 65" blue color problem

Yes, you need to replace the convergence output amplifier IC's. They can be ordered on line. After removing the back you must remove the circuit board which houses the amps. Then desolder them and install the replacemnts. If you are extremely lucky there won't be any re-alignment issues with the new amps. Then you should be good to go.

Unplug your TV for a while and see fi you are getting the same issues after you plug it in. If it works after, then you have an overheating issue with the power supply or main board.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Horizontal Color alignment will not align

Green color means that there is contanimation from the blue and yellow inks. Try to look inside the printer to where the printhead rests when not in use and see if there is alot of ink there. There may be green ink on the sponge there that may be attaching itself to the bottom of the printhead.

Hope this helps!

Yellow vertical bar on right edge of screen

Your set is starting to get a convergence problem and the only way to repair it is by changing the convergence IC's,(3)one for each color,the blue migh be showing more now but soon all 3 colors will be out of alignment and you will not be able to correct it with the custumer controls,is great that it has worked for so long without this problem,if you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a pro-servicer.Let Us know how it goes.
