    Blue colours on projected image from Sahara projector.

    Good morning,
    I have a Sahara S2200W Projector Sahara Projectors: Sahara S2200W 3 LCD projector

    It is displaying images with a strange blue tinge. I have tried changing settings etc.
    It is similar to the yellow marks you often get when something has burned out inside of the projector.
    The strange thing is, at first the blue tinge is not there, then it gradually appears over a few hours. But if you then change window or come out of a screen saver, it instantly goes back to normal mode and the colour is restored back to normal.

    Does anyone have an idea of what this could be?
    I can't see if being the bulb as it would fail when you turn it on not a few hours later, and then be ok.

    Sounds as if something is getting too hot...have you tried setting up a fan to keep it cooler to see if that stops the blue tint?

    I would say an LCD panel is faulty.

    Thanks Cesil and Educare_AV for your suggestions.

    I have ensured all of the vents are clear from any dust buildups and have not noticed any warnings regarding over heating.
    If it were the LCD panel, would this cost quite alot to replace? Would it be new projector time?

    Thanks guys.

    Not really something I normally get involved with, but I would imagine if it just a basic projector, then it's probably worth replacing with something new that has warranty.

    Thanks for your post.
    I will put it to the coord that it may be time to replace.
    It is not young, looks to be one from their original install which was a good 5 or so years ago.

    Thanks again for your help!
