When I try to turn the projector on, the status light blinks 6 times indicating what the manual calls a lamp error. The manual simply says to try again. That did not work. I unplugged it and plugged it back in. That did not work.
We replaced the lamp about 3 months ago and it probably has about 75 hours on it.

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
This could be a number of things. When I encountered this problem it was simply a burned out lamp. If you have not checked that make sure you do that first. Also there is a safety feature on the projectors that will not let you turn the projector on until the lamp cover is back in place. You may also want to ensure that the filter door is securely in place. After you have done this try to power up the projector (it will take a few seconds for the lamp to warm up.) If the projector starts up, go to the menu and clear the lamp hours. These projectors have lamp life's that will expire after a certain amount of time, irregardless of the functionality of the bulb. Hope this helps you out. :)
Replacing the lamp with an old one was helpful for me. Good news: the projector itself not faulty. Bad news: I have two projectors with the same issue at the same time (the lamps were replaced also at the same time) after only 400 hours of running.
If it is a lamp error try this: When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following: For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds. For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]
