Red vertical lines in right third of display

Hi, I just bought a used PJ800 (in "working order" - supposedly!). When I got it home and turned it on, I discovered there are bright red vertical lines in the right third of the display. No adjustments to Color / Picture that I made had any effect. The lines are there with no input ("blank screen") and also with the input connected. Additionally, when any of the menu options is highlighted, it becomes unreadable - some sort of distortion / lines. Any ideas on what this is, how it could be fixed? Also, how do you reset this projector to Factory Settings (if that might be helpful?)... I don't see an option for that in any of the menus. Thanks for any help you can offer!

Zdenko did an excellent job. Voltage regulators and the capacitors on the main boards and in the power supplies are always suspect. Some times you can narrow down the culprit buy purchasing a can of freeze spray. Let the TV warm up and try freezing suspect components to see if this causes a reaction. Thermal problems can often be found in this way.
Of course, if you're not able or willing to replace components on the circuit boards, you can always replace the main board or power supply board after determining which is causing the problem. These parts should be available at your local Viewsonic service provider at a reasonable price.

Hi there

This could be a problem on the Mainboard - because all the proccessing from your inputs is done on the Mainboard.

Try replacing it , I'm sure you'll have joy then.

Call your insurance agency as this should be covered under your homeowners policy. The main driver board is made by JeanCo of Taiwan and is not replaceable and cannot be ordered as a part.

Good luck

Yes, you have to measure up from the line it gives you. It gives you a precise level so mark it and then measure up (or down) from it.
Or place the tripod on a table or something to get to higher position.

Vertical red line through screen

This is a problem within the screen, probably the connection from the internal ribbon connector to the display. Unfortunatly the only way to repair this is to have the screen replaced.

Red vertical line down right side of the screen

hi

I think your TV have a trouble inside lcd panel
the controller board contains driver IC. Deffective driver IC can cause of line display.

Three reasons why one vertical line accross screen can happen in LCD;

1.The missing signal from the controller IC to
LCD driver.
2. LCD driver IC itself defective
3. Dry contact in the tape carrier package.

Use masking or electrical tape to mark it where the line was located. press it if the line back to normal but when release your hand came back i think it was intermittent. Open the LCD panel

Hi

If you have External Monitor check by connecting it
if you get display on external monitor without line it means Display screen is Bad, if Line appears on external display as well then there is either Display driver issue or motherboard problem.
