    Blurred Projector

    Hi,

    I have a Acer S5200 projector which has some blurring in the middle of the screen. The bulb was replaced 6 months ago and I have wiped the lens but its still rubbish, when the projector is on you can see the lens is not perfectly clear. Has anyone replaced the lens on these before? Not sure if I can get spares for it (or its feasible)

    not to sound funny, but are you sure it is in focus as i have had kids messing around with the focus and zooms on our projectors ?

    Assuming it's out of warranty? Do you have a spare lamp you could try to rule that out?

    Did the previous lamp explode?

    I had a lamp expire in an epson projector that peppered the LCD panel with glass fragments and made it look blurry in exactly the way you describe. The projector went in the bin!

    It's DLP, it's a known issue with a large number of them (faulty chips?). We have had to bin three so far.

    Don't think it exploded if I recall, just popped. Might take it apart and have a look for the shards.

    Sounds like a faulty chip but I can not be sure - have you tried giving the filter a good clean?

    I sent this off last week and got a quote through the post today. Replacement Module Engine 210.92 + 40 labour + vat comes to 301.10. I just bought a replacement for not much more than that.
