Hi All,

I know you guys know a lot so I thought here would be a great place to get my question answered. My InFocus LP240 projector has a strange yellow tint in the middle of the projected image. I am wondering if you know what it is and how to fix it. It is not the globe I have checked it.

Thanks,

P.S Picture coming soon.

if you are really lucky its a cable, try a different one. ( can be internal or even a bent pin in a VGA connector for instance.)

more likely the LCD panel is on the way out - which means a new projector.

Did you ever resolve this issue. We have a projector - same model - which the same thing was happening to. Then it just stopped projecting. We hate to buy a new bulb if the projector is no longer working!

thanks in advance

No, I think it was more the LCD panel than the lamp. Don't even know where it is as it isn't really worth the money fixing it.

It's the LCD. Probably damage caused to the LCD by overheating. Make sure your filters etc are clean - but not much you can do now.

It would be the LCD panel that is causing your problem. It would be quite expensive to replace. I would suggest buying a new projector.

I'm with meh, the screen is the most expensive part, and it looks like its a big melted / burnt (looks like photos from Lumenlab Enabling Technologies (http://www.lumenlab.com).

It can happen when the lamps burn out or are close to burning out. I'm not sure quite what causes the problem, but its either damage to the lens or LCD panel. You'll need a replacement unit, I'm afraid.
