projector screen bleed? problem

by MiniCamcorders / January 22, 2011 3:26 AM PST

I recently got a used Epson PowerLite 7500C (http://www.projectorcentral.com/Epson-PowerLite_7500C.htm). Upon testing it, I found that it has some problem with colors. Sometimes it looks almost right, but most of the time it has strong discolorations in certain areas. I don't know how to explain it very well. I'm not certain that color bleeding is the correct way to describe it or not, but I've included photos.

Here's the photo from the projector. Note especially the bright green on the left side (on the wood post and the rope):

Here's the photo of the same image from the laptop, with proper color:

I've tried a couple different sources, the video from the laptop (using Netflix) and Wii video game system. Both produce the same problem when viewed through the projector.

Can anyone explain what this problem is..., what it is called, why it occurs, and if there's anything that can be done to fix it? Is it a problem with the projector or due to the low specs on the projector itself?

The color LCD's are going, they do not last forever it is a 1999 model, it may not even be able too be fixed because of the age. Not worth fixing since you can get a brand new Epson with much better specs for $1k.

it was free anyways, but hoping it was worth using

I got it free, but it's pretty unwatchable, I'd say. Maybe I can sell it on eBay, noting the problem, and get something for it. Is there a more technical term for this problem?
