    I have an Epson 5000 projector that on power up has green streaks aprox 2 pixels wide throughout the screen running vertically. after around 5 mins they disappear giving a perfect picture, no matter what the input. but... again after 15-20 mins later they re-appear, this time much worse and stay on screen. anyone have any idea what is wrong and how i can rectify this problem.

    please help! Thanks. :eek:

    Ive seen it on a lot of Epson projectors. Its a problem with the Optical engine. Very expensive to get repaired.

    Thanks for the reply. Can you give me any more details on this problem? for instance exactly what's knackered, what it takes to fix it and how much it may be to do it...
    Is it a specialist job? Cheers :confused:

    Im not to hot on the actual working parts inside projectors. I thik the optical engine is a Microdisplay that helps with the res. How easy it is to replace i dont no. If its got anything to do with the optics leave well alone let the experts do the job. Price £600-800 parts, labour and carriage. My advise would be to find a repair centre and get a quote (Most repair centers charge an inspection fee if you reject the repair). Good luck.
