    usually, dim, or dim with a bright spot in the middle is bulb, pinky tinge, greeny tinge or blue tinge is usally combintations of bad VGA, either colours missing, or colours too high level, yellow tinge is usually panel breakdown due to overheat, brown tinge is usually burnt polaris(z)er due to overheat or UV although these are sometimes mistakeable for each other.

    Hi Marc,
    The supplier in Irvine, CA, USA (888)307-0309, Opt 2 emailed me an Exposed pdf of the XL8U for ease of parts selection. By looking at the Exploded View of the projector and gave them the name of the part, which they then search for its part number. They do have it in stock for $153.90 USD. The filters comes in a bundle of 3: Red, Green, Blue. I'm debating w/ myself wheather I should fix it or replace it. 'Cause it would come out to $258 for the new lamp and filters.
    Already, if you like to have a copy of the PDF file of the XL8U projector I can email to you.
    Cheers-

    Well its actually not a bad price but yes you still have to fit them and set them up can be tedious to get right setting up "black" and you MUST wear UV glasses when you do this as it of course has to be done when on !

    So better option for you may be to replace projector.

    Hi Marc,
    I just purchased another XL8U the other day, for $62 USD (with S/H). When it arrived, I took it apart and the polarizer-filters are in good condition (I just saved $153.90). It took me 2-3 hours to fix the power supplier, which had a few sheared wires due to heavy impact. Now the projector works like new. Pretty good, huh!
    Well, thank you for your replies and advices.
