Problem with a Gateway 210 DLP projector

Greetings, I recently purchased a used Gateway DLP 210 projector. Upon turning the device on, the screen displays a black haze/hue on the left side and top. When the image is flipped between front, rear, upside down and so forth the distortion remains as if there is some sort of physical impediment. I have taken the bulb out and do not see any indication of physical blockage. Have you ever seen this type of failure before?

The color wheel may not be turning. Remove the lamp and see if it will turn manually.

When plugged into laptop, projects images with a purple haze

Sharp XR1S It projects the image on screen, use to show the correct color. last time the image was projected but in pink hues. is this an adjustment issue or is the lamp going or gone?


hi,
first of all check the tint setting on your projectors picture menu.
if not get the correct color then, your projector is a dlp projector that means it have a color wheel in side. if the synchronization of color wheel is not correct this problem can occur. there is a sensor for couting the rpm of color wheel. also have a black mark on the color wheels rotating portion. the sensor scene this black mark for making count. if there is any dust in that portion it will make difficult to the sensor making the counts. you have to remove the color wheel to clean the same.
i have added a video how to clean the color wheel . not the same projector.
ok

I have a dataprojector, no signal


Then 'No signal' or 'unsupported signal' messages are usually because your display is set too high. To see if this is your issue, hoop it back up too your computer & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. Assuming you are using windows, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes, then drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector.


Note for Laptop users-- By default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue <fn> button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control <crtl>) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you

Green screen projection


This is the exact same issue as I described for an Epson user. So I'll repeat it here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the green color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the green panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the green light in the image. This causes a nice green hue to the whole screen.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

Images has a blue color across the center


Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

Seeing a blue "haze" on presentations, and when on blank screen


On the "Option" menu, try selecting "Service" and the "Factory Reset". This may help. If not, you will have to use the menus to manually adjust the level of blue in the projectin. Go here for the manual for your Hitachi and you will find instructions:

VT45 Projector: Blue pixels throughout screen


If the problem is what I describe as a blue haze over the entire image projected, I was told this is a defect in the cable - we have a Dell Video Projector 2300 - and it takes only a dell VGA cable.

So, the problem is in the cable - solution is replace cable.
