I recently acquired a Sanyo PLC-SW20A projector off a friend. I connected it all up to my DVD etc and powered the unit up, the projected image was a reddish/pink colour. I checked all the connections and leads and all were ok.

Any ideas what could be wrong ?

The picture is bright and crisp its just a reddish/pink colour, any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Hi Alex, Welcome to the Shack!

How are you hooking up the projector to the DVD player?

I would try another cable just to make sure, also hook it up using another cable like composite or S-Video.
If the problem still persists I would say that the green LCD panel may have gone bad.

Would a faulty Green LCD panel make the picture red/pinkish ?

If so, do i repair or replace them ?

Are they costly and can i do it using a service manual ?

It could, I'm no expert but that is my first guess. Replacement may not be that hard but I've never done one so I would wait to hear from someone who has more knowledge about this to chime in.
Did you try a different video connection?

Alex,

Try the other connection(s) before thinking about LCD panels. I am not sure they could be repaired, and I have never heard of them being replaced as well.... and normally they shouldn't.
