My new lamp won't turn on

So one day my projector just turned off. i had no indication that my lamp life is running low. the lamp/cover light was blinking. i got myself two new LMP-C150. i've installed the first one. turned my projector on, it stayed on for a around 20 seconds then turned off again. the lamp didn't turn on at all and now the LAMP/COVER light stays lit after the projector shuts down. i've tried to reset the lamp hours using my RM-PJ2 remote but i've had no luck. i've tried the 2nd new lamp on and experienced the same symptoms. can anyone help please?

SOURCE: Both the LAMP/COVER and FAN/TEMP indicator lights come on, not blinking

with both lights solid. according to the manual all it says is (there is an electrical failure inside the unit, please take to an authorized servicer). if you are able to do this yourself you will need the schematics and a voltmeter to start testing your voltages. your lamp is fine so dont waste your money replacing that anymore. if you would like the service manual send me an email to fixya@markservicepro.com.

SOURCE: I have a VPL-CX70 that

The bulb is not lighting correctly.
Take out the bulb and check the connectors are not dirty and reinsert.
See if you can see the bulb looks ok, you may be unlucky that the bulb has prematurely failed (hope not)
Try again to start it.

The "lamp" light keeps blinking red. Does this


The lamp life becomes 0%, when used
for approximately 4,000 hours with "Eco
Mode" or when used for approximately
2,000 hours with "Standard Mode" (see
page 43).
When the remaining lamp life becomes
5% or less, " " (yellow) will be displayed
on the screen. When the percentage becomes
0%, " " will change to " " (red),
the lamp will automatically turn off and
then the projector will automatically enter
the standby mode. At this time, the
lamp indicator will illuminate in red.
If you try to turn on the projector a fourth
time without replacing the lamp, the projector
will not turn on.
If you require the manual to help with changing the bulb, send me an email to LBrown18062@hotmail.com Put SHARP PG-B10S in the subject line. I will send it to you right away. Lawrence Brown

Epson PowerLite 410W projector (used for a smart board in a classroom) won't project anything or even turn on. Power button (maybe lamp indicator light? I don't really know anything about this...)...


It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.

VT595 LCD Won't come on. Power light orange Status red Blincks Once every sec or so.


If the lamp life has exceded its safe working limit, it will probably go into a permanent standby mode, I used to have an NEC MT830, I had to hold down the off button for 20 seconds to reset the lamp life, maybe it will be something similar. If you have your manual, it may give instructions, if not there will be a downloadable manual on the NEC website.

Good luck

Does a lamp error message (6 blinking red status lights) mean the lamp needs to be replaced? or could something else be wrong.


According to NEC technical support, if the status light flashes red six times, this could indicate a defective lamp. If a new lamp is installed and the project still won't turn on, the projector will need service.

LCD projector shuts off durning use


u have not mentioned how long u have been using this projector. either the lamp life is low or the circuitry protecting the lamp temperature is defective or even the air intake of the fan is inadequate, a filter is fitted for air flow if this is clogged or blocked, lamp temp will rise and unit shuts down. if lamp indicator is yellow or red it is time to change the lamp. if it is red - lamp is totally out, if u turn on the unit four times without replacing lamp, the unit simply wont turn on. one other possibility is power cable and power connections. check power cable too.

PG-C45X projector wont power on


To solve this problem, simultaneously press the "Input", "Enter", and "Undo" buttons. While holding these buttons, press "On". When the project turns on, you should see "LAMP 100%". This indicates that you have successfully reset the lamp life timer.
