Some times each manufacture uses the same code for all their projectors. I dont know if this will work but heres the code for the HT1000.
It's the following sequence of button presses on the remote control:
HELP HELP HELP ENTER MENU [password prompt appears] DOWN UP RIGHT UP ENTER
After completing that sequence, the MENU button will activate the "Service Menu" instead of the usual "Basic Menu" or "Advanced Menu". Note that rhythm in which you press the HELP button is important-- if you do it too fast, it doesn't work. Also, if you press CANCEL when there are no menus displayed, it disables the service menu again (it took me a while to figure out why I would sometimes lose the service menu mysteriously)-- the sequence above will re-enable it.
Anyone ever get the access to the service menu? Or do you know if NEC can fix this? We have a MT1035 in the office with the same issue. They are going to buy a new device and will probably give this MT1035 to me so I would like to know if there is a solution. I tried the AVS Search to no avail.
The ghosting is caused by the green panel (usually) starting to go bad. This is a common problem with the older NECs. I emailed asking for a price on the assy, which only comes as a whole unit (including the prism assy) as it is all soldered together. The price I got from them a couple of years ago was..... 1800.00! .....Ouch!
I guess it can be fixed, but at a price I'm not willing to pay.
I did ask the tech for a price on the panel alone (through NEC US) and was told that it only came as a "whole" assy. I would have replaced the panel if I was able to get it. Lucky that you were able to get the part in HongKong. Please provide info for the other guys in need, if it's possible.
Yes, your pic does look like the "ghosting" as mine did. We had a bunch of similar "older" model Infocus projectors at work that did the same thing also.
