For the second time in the past couple weeks, a client has called asking what to do about purple spots or a purple splotch on the projected image.  Those purple (sometimes red-purple) spots are typically due to dirt or dust coming to rest on the green LCD panel of your projector.  We've had success in fixing this without having to resort to a factory service call by removing the air filters, cleaning them up and then using a portable vacuum cleaner (Shopvac-type) to draw air back out through the intakes.  Often, the dust that's causing the bigger splotches will pull right out, and usually the smaller pieces, too.

Will this work 100% of the time?  It's hard to know, but so far, so good.  And, if there's a purple smear that covers the middle of your projected image, you're going to have to send it in for service anyway.  What do you have to lose?

And if you need a new projector, we have what you need from Panasonic, Sony, Eiki and others.  Call us or click here for more information
