Originally I had an InFocus IN26+ business type XGA DLP projector. For some strange reason, no matter the settings, the greens were too bright. Greens that you might see in, say, the green grinning smiley >>>
<<<< would be flourescent / neon green looking. Obviously brighter than the rest of the colors around it.
I had it hooked up via VGA to a computer, and no matter the color space or temperature it would do this.
2 months ago I bought an InFocus X10, 1080p, home theater DLP projector - refurbished - on eBay.
It has the exact same green color issue. It is hooked up via HDMI to a computer also, but this computer is also new. I can resolve the issue by turning on brilliant color. However, any setting (as before) without brilliant color will have the green issue.
Is this a symptom of a bad color wheel? Or bulb? or what?
I will upload pictures soon to make it obvious what I mean. Thanks for any help.
Ok here is a hue/saturation test chart I use that makes it obvious.
Here is the original chart image:
Here is the issue, the horizontal bars are supposed to be darker than the foreground - not brighter.
And with BrilliantColor turned on, all the other colors remain normal as they were, and green becomes normal, too.
I'm not expert and can't interpret color charts, but quite a few of the DLP projectors I've come across push green. In the case of LCD, I find they often push red. As in your case, this can typically be solved with calibration and messing with settings.
To me when I hear DLP color push I think of some vague miscalibration that an average joe couldn't see without a side by side comparison.
This seems more glaring.
