Question about Sony VPL CS5 Multimedia Projector
I bought it used and it works fine except the fact that there is a double image. It doesn't matter what i have hooked up to it or if i have nothing hooked up to it. The menu is a double image as well.

Give input signal to the projector and see that if the menu appears or not on the screen.
if menu comes on the screen then put the backgroung color to blue, instaed of black.
if nothing comes on the screen, then the LCD panels are faulty.

The internal fan ,that are to be checked.The fan should run.If the fan is not running then projector will turn on,then start but will shut off.This happens because the internal lamp housing and board.This two things gets overheated,as soon as you turn on the projector.So this fan this there inside to cool the lamp housing and the board.But if fan is either slow or not running then internal heat temperature increases and unit shuts off.Its common problem,this is to save internal board and lamp housing from getting overheated and short.In this case take the unit apart from its back,by re,moving the screws,then see the fan,if its very dirty then it has to be cleaned by the cleaning brush then check the fan wiring.If its ok,turn the unit on and see.If the fan is not at all running then its faulty fan,but if the fan is running but very slow then from the back apply any external table fan too,to the unit and then turn on the unit.In some cases,not in all.In some cases this has helped to make the projector work.In other cases the fan has to be replaced.------------ Also as you mentioned that Air filter is clean,still try cleaning the filter once before replacing the fan. To clean the air filter please perform the following steps: 1. Switch of the Projector and let it cool down 2. Disconnect the Projector from AC. 3. Remove the air filter cover. 4. Remove the air filter from the cover. 5. Wash the air filter with a mild detergent solution and dry it in a shaded place. 6. Reassemble the filter and the filter Cover. ----------- this should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
