You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

This model will only support 1080i. What you need to do is go into the display settings on your PS3 and set the max resolution that your TV will support to "1080i" That should get you going!

The projector's lamp cover might not be securly on or you might need a new one, or the projector has blown a fuse that can be replaced other wise it could be your projector but be sure to contact your sony dealer first.

Its your blue polarizer going bad. This happens over time due to the excessive heat generated in the projector. The main problem is that your projector has organic LCD panels that degrade over time and in turn degrades your blue polarizer. The same thing happened to my sanyo Z2. It took 5 years for it to show on my Sanyo because I only use the projector for sports and movies. not daily tv watching. In any case, it isnt worth it to spend the money ti fix it...jut put tat towrds a new projector. The latest crop of LCD projectors almost all use in-organic LCD panels that last much longer. Hope this helps.

This is not really a solution but when mine does this I switch the input to the projector to another video source and then back again. this usually makes it go away. If you find a better solution I would appreciate hearing it. Thanks.

Hi,
There are 2 problems in this post, let me know what problem is yours?

In case of first problem, please check fans are running?
and for second problem, as you said you see Menu of projector then its not bulb (lamp) problem and no picture reason could be bad HDMI cable or HDMI port of projector. Please provide analog video signal either DVD player or computer to make sure that projector has picture from other inputs.

Hit "add a comment" button for further query / info.
Thanks.

I also have the same problem -- the fix is to replace the optical block ( Internal lamp engine ) which is a $1,100 part. I just purchased a used projector for half the price of the part.

Check if the screen or the lines change when you move the cable that connects to the computer. It could just be a bad cable or the connection could be loose.

If you haven't tried yet, do a hard reset. Disconnect the power cable and press the power button on the projector for 10 seconds.

Aren't you getting the same lines on the computer's monitor or if you're using a laptop, the LCD screen?
