Whatever button i press the status light flashes and nothing happens?

Even when the projector is switched off i can't use the buttons to switch it on. Every button makes the status (yellow) light switch on. Any ideas will be very appreciated.

Re: Whatever button i press the status light flashes and...

Hi 1) Check that the power cable is plugged in and that the power button on the projector cabinet or the remote control is on. See pages E-16 and 17 in the manual,m5221,gm34/NEC-VT460-Multimedia-Projector.aspx 2) Ensure that the lamp cover or lamp housing is installed correctly. See page E-30. 3) Check to see if the projector has overheated or the lamp has reached the end of its usable life. If there is insufficient ventilation around the projector or if the room where you?re presenting is particularly warm, move the projector to a cooler location 4) You have pressed control panel key when Control Key Lock is enabled good luck

The projector turns on but won't project any light through the lens.

If this is a NEC VT series projector, Change the lamp. When if it continues to blink amber and not project and image after installing a new lamp check the lamp cover to see if the micro switch tab on the lamp cover broke off. Some models have a built in lens cover. If the cover is not slid over to open completely the light may not turn on.

Our projector doesn't turn on anymore. Nothing happens when I press the power button, not even the beginnings of the start up process.

I just had the same problem today. All lights flashing and won't start up. Noticed the flashing the other day, but they stopped after i turned it on. Now nothing
