Blurry Purple Hue in Middle (see picture)
So the other day I received a free, "broken" projector. A BOXLIGHT older X30N type series.
Anyways, the only problem it has is that the center of the screen (it's not even the exact center, it's slightly off to the left) has a purple, blurry hue to it. I can adjust the RED output and that diminishes the effect a bit, but it's still there. When viewing large square black font over it, the letters stretch a little bit with a shadow backwards too. When the screen is a solid BLUE color during startup, the purple hue is not noticeable at all. Only when watching anything with a whiter color will it start to blur out really quickly.
Could it be that someone simply cleaned the front lens with a cleaning product not intended for the projector? I used a microfiber and bottled water cloth on it and it seemed to help a little maybe, or I could be imagining it. Or is this a bulb issue? The bulb itself only has about 450 hours on it, which is pretty short for a 2000 hour bulb? Is there an easy way to remove the front lens cover and see if that makes the problem go away? Or is there a better cleaning product I can try on it? Maybe something more aggressive?
Any help would be appreciated. I couldn't find someone else on the forum who had a similar issue. Other than the center being a blurry purple color, the project works great.
I'm an IT tech admin for a living, so I have no problem with taking the entire thing apart. Just wanted to check and see if it might be something easy first.
