    Exclamation Flashing Purple patch on screen epson projector

    Hello,

    We have recently had someone bring in a projector (epson emp-x5) that has had a bulb put in it about a year ago. I have cleaned the dust out.

    It however, shows a flashing purple patch on the screen when it is on a light background (such as a word document). Is there anyone that could have a solution for this?

    Thank you.

    might sound simple but it could be the cable, we had a similar issue, changed to a higher grade cable and it was fine. Then saying that we have also had a projector with a yellow splash that turned out to be the unit.

    I'm thinking @Little-Miss had something to do with it.

    We have now cleaned the projector, the purple patch has gone. However, it now overheats and the lamp warning light comes on- this is a different problem. Any ideas?
