I’ve had my W1070 for four years now, and other than an overheating issue that never returned after some fan cleaning, it’s been pretty problem free. I don’t watch movies on it too much, the lamp is only at 1007 hours. However, tonight I turned it on and the picture had the colors all screwed up!
There seemed to be too much red I guess, as if a component cable had one of the Y Pb or Pr
cables not attached, except this is connected via HDMI, so it wasn’t that.
I clicked helplessly through the menus, trying to find something I wasn’t sure was even there to set. Finally, I turned on the Test Pattern and a black and white grid appeared. I had to back out and pull up the menu again to get back to the setting to turn the Test Pattern off and when I did that, the screen flickered a slightly pink purple color and then the picture returned, NOW with the proper colors!
Anyone else experience this? If so, any ideas what the problem is that caused it. I am afraid it may happen again out of the blue like this time. At least I was able to get it back, but it would be good to know if it is a sign of an impending problem. Thanks.
