My HC500 Mitsubishi Project flashes on and off frequently.

Customer Question

My HC500 Mitsubishi Project flashes on and off frequently. It is extremely annoying. I used to think that maybe it was my amplifier/receiver but I think it is the projector. Have you seen this before?

- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to projector and does the problem occur on all video input sources?
Thank you.

There is a PS4 and Direct TV connected via a Harman/Kardon receiver. It appears it happens more after things run for awhile/projector warms up.

Thanks for the info.

We need to troubleshoot the problem to find out if it is projector's internal issue or problem coming from connected video source/ device.

Please connect PS4 directly to projector and check, do you still get same problem?

Does the picture flicker or projector power goes on-off?

Also, press menu button on projector remote to get its own menu screen, do the menu graphics flicker as well?
