HP VP6111 Projector. problem: From day one when I bought it brand new, this projector had problems starting the bulb. Everytime I didn't use the projector for some time, when I tried to turn it on it...


It is a pity you did not return it after the first problem. If it is still under Warranty, I suggest you do now. Even if it is out of time, it is still 'not fit for purpose '

On my sharp pg f212xl projector when i turn it on i hear a click and the start up sound then i hear another click about 5 seconds later it shuts down and the power led blinks red


SORRY - it needs a new lamp. It is a protection for the projector so the bulb doesn't explode.

I purchase hitachi projectors with 3 year bulb warrenties now for our school as cheaper in long term
good luck

I have a Mitsubishi WD-52631. Picture will not come on. You hear the fan kick on and a whistling sound for a few seconds and then it powers off. After it shut down I pressed the INPUT and MENU buttons...


You need a new projector bulb. Google up your model and buy the best warranteed one you can find. Buy a "caged assembly" and not just a bare bulb.

Then unplug your tv and get a screwdriver. Follow your model's instructions and just snug down the electrical screws. Do not overtighten them.

Then consult your manual on how to reset the lamp timer so it knows you put a new bulb in and fires up from the first try.

Treat yourself because you've just saved yourself a trip from a repairman!!

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

I have a infocus 4805 projector the bulb quit on me due to over heating i guess, any way it cracked and burnt out. I ordered a new bulb which i received and installed. I watched half a movie and had to...


first thing's first- clean the dust out of the projector with canned air. excessive dust and heat are death to a projector. then check the colorwheel. if you don't hear a high-pitched whir or you hear a buzzing, the colorwheel needs to be replaced. the lamp won't strike without it. next check both fans. you may need to take the top off to do it. if both fans don't spin properly, it will overheat. many times the larger fan (lamp fan) will burn out or the circuit that starts it burns out. next, check the new lamp. does it have black spot, bulges, or fogging? if so, you'll need to replace it. if you do have to, don't get the cheapest one from "bob's lamps" online. you get what you pay for. if all that is ok, then you have a bad power supply. it's rare that this model has ps issues, but it's not unheard of. you could get the part(s) from an infocus service center, or send it in to them for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

Infocus screenplay 4805 projector


check the wireing in the new bulb . My new one had the wires in the wrong holes like if there are 4 slots in the connector then my orignal was in slots 1 and 4 the new one was in slots 1 and 3 so I took the wire out and put it in the #4 slot and put it in and unpluged the machine and did a reset and restart and it came on green. Hope this helps.

Can you tell me why the optoma HD72I lamp will turn off after just a few minutes of running, the lamp is still fine


I have the same problem. I got a new bulb and it worked for about 1000 hours, then the new bulb started having the same problem. So, I was about to buy another bulb, and I figured why not try the original bulb. IT WORKED! For a couple weeks... Then it started doing it again. Obviously there was nothing wrong with the original bulb, and there is nothing wrong with the new bulb, but I have 2 bulbs that do it now. So, is there any way to just tell the projector run the bulb till it actually dies and not turn it off because it thinks it is about to die.
