    Could be a stained lens or LCD panel you will need to send it away for a service.

    It sounds like you have not had this serviced, and it has now burnt the polerising filter, this can be replaced and the projector will also need a deep clean make sure it goes to a proper engineer as setting up a filter can damge your contrast and true black.

    If you describe the area of yellow, is it all over because as mentioned above it can be a broken wire in the VGA, but if a patch then probably buring.

    it is the lcds burning. cant be fixed. if you want to get a new projector then get the acer x110. the image is superb and because its dlp then its quiet and will never go yellow

    It is not usually the LCD it is the polerising fiter most can be replaced prices vari from £20 to £100 each you have 3 in most projectors, plus fitting that is.

    Sorry to highjack the thread but I have a convergance problem on 2 identical projectors. Would this also be the polarising filters? (New lamp did not solve problem just made image much clearer!)

    They are both Sanyo PLC-SE10 projectors. We noticed one had a very bad convergance problem* and decided to borrow a lamp from another at the other end of school only to discover that was the same.

    * Assuming I'm using the correct term! Anything projected has a duplicate in green just to the left - this is particularly noticeable with menu items such as Focus

    Hi Marc, Don't mind if I ask: where can you buy a replacement polering filter for the XL8U projector? (locolly prefferable).

    OK local to you....Hmm CustomerCare@meus.mea.com is the USA support email, try this and let me know

    Have you replaced a polerising filter before? or should i say Polerizing!

    Do you want to let me know your problems just to confirm it is a Filter?

    Polerizing filter

    Okay, I'll send them an email. Thank you.
    Yes and no, I found the filter that causes the yellow tint in the center, and removed it, but now the whole screen is yellowish. So this could also be a cable or blue-LCD panel issue... I will find out as soon as I replace the polerizing filter. Again thanks Marc.

    It may be more than one filter have you looked at the others?

    Yes, I have inspected the outter and inner polarizing filters that sandwich the 3 LCD panels, and only one got burnt.
    By the way, the lamp just gave up the ghost... which explane why there's a blurry video image.
    Take care Marc.

    It maybe the lamp is (or was) over its Hrs, as a lamp ages its UV output goes up exponentially this is what burns the filters not as some belive the heat. You must always change the lamps at their rated Hrs anyway let me know how it goes with your emailing the supplier.
