    Just got a great deal on a Philips LC 4331 LCD projector. The reason for the great deal is because there is a yellow strip on the top of the image and a blue strip on the bottom. I have a feeling something is burned into the LCD, but I am not an expert.

    Does anyone know what is causing it and if it's possible to fix inexpensively? I can watch anything in a 16:9 ratio and have no problems, since the black bars are in the same position as the blue & yellow ones. Once I change to full screen, the discoloration gets annoying after awhile.

    Thanks for your help!

    So far I have tried it with the Data (VGA) cable from a PC and also S-Video cable from my DVD player. It doesn't matter where it is positioned, from what I have seen so far.

    Are your Philips doing the same thing?

    If the areas of discolouration match the black bars it might be something akin to screen burn. If it is, you are probably stuck with it....PJ :)
