    Sony VPL-EX3 colours gone funny

    Hi there,

    Can anyone give me any advice on this? One of our Sony VPL-EX3 projectors has gone dunny, I can best describe this in pictures. Here's the original picture


    Here's the picture displayed on a CRT


    and here it is on the whiteboard
    .

    I can' work out what it is.

    Do you think it can be fixed, or do we need to buy a new one?

    Thanks - Simon

    VGA cable connections? Try moving it and see if the colours change.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for that, I should have mentioned that I tried all that, it's snot the leads, this happens with a completely different set of leads on a different computer, it's something inside the projector, I think.

    Any other ideas?

    In the menu there is I think it is called colour temp, or something like that which changes the colour scheme, I think by default it should be dynamic on the sony's have a look and try the options

    Thanks TronXP, I did try this, and it did change the colour, but the missing colours were still missing. Thankfully it was still under warrantee, so it's gone back to Sony.

    had the same issue with the same model, we cleaned the filter and reset the filter hours, which did the trick. If the filter hours goes over something like 500, then it changes the settings automatically to sort it.
