I have a Telex P1400 LCD projector (rebadged Fujitsu 6200). I just had it into the Fujitsu service department for over 2 months. They replaced several items in the optical path and a digital board. I had magenta in part of the picture and green in others. They got that corrected. The picture, for the most part, is even. They are supposed to have gone over all of the adjustments in the service menu.


I get it back and it is awful. I cannot adjust out the magenta look in the shadows. The contrast looks whacky. Plenty of blacks, plenty of whites, but in between no range. Faces look pasty and washed out. You can't get a normal skin tone, no matter what. It sort of looks like one of those color portraits that has been hanging in the UV light too long.


I have access to the three colors in the user menu as well as the normal contrast, brightness, color, tint, etc. No amount of adjusting will produce even close to a normal picture. The problem is obviously in the calibration in the service menu.


This projector at one time had a stunning picture. That was before Telex's service department destroyed it. I thought Fujitsu could straigten it out.


I don't know what to do next. I don't know what to communicate to Fujitsu. Just telling them it's a bad picture doesn't say enough.


I'm hoping some of the learned members of this forum can give me some guidence on what I should do now.


I should add that I feed it with a Toshiba SD5109 player using the component (interlaced) output. The projector has an excellent scaler on board, but doesn't take component progressive scan.


Thanks for your help.

Anyone able to give me any advice? I'm not sure what to do next. Is the gray scale what is also referred to as gamma?


Thanks.


Deane
