Philips LC7181
Projector Specs
I recently bought a used Philips Matchline Garbo LC7181 projector.

I can´t get it to light up a proper bright picture, it´s green/yellowish and dark - is it the lamp??

The seller told me the lamp should last 4000 hours more but that must be: in about 4000Hours the lamp will "blow up" ?!?

Am I right thinking of buying a new lamp? I found an webshop selling them, not cheap but almost ok priced.

Someone that could tell me if I am doing the right thing or is there something else to test first?

Hi,

Did you buy a new bulb - did this solve your problem?

I too am having a similar problem with a Philips Garbo projecter - 2000hrs in on expected 6000hr bulb life.

See: http://www.bigscreenforums.com/forum_topic.cfm?which=2599

Was the yellowish picture overall on your projector?

Thanks,
E

See the other post - but it sounds like bad polarizers to me.
