    I'm having the same problem with my PJ458D projector. Lamp will not turn on.

  • mlcompound Nov 21, 2008

    Mine is doing the same thing. When I hit the power button it will flash green and make a faint clicking noise for a couple seconds. It will repeat that a couple times then show a red lamp light (near the menu button). Then it will flash orange and repeat the whole process again. After a second try it will go back to standby. Please advise. Should I just get a mew lamp?

I want to use my projector for my Xbox but when I hook it up it has no sound. There also is no audio port in the back of the projector for the Xbox auxiliary cords. How do get the audio to work?

If there is a port for computer audio (3.5mm jack) you can buy at converter for RCA stereo to headphone jack. These can be bought at mostly any radioshack. This is what you'd be looking for:

What cable or adapter do I need to connect my projector to a MacBook video out port?

You will need a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter. Apple sells this item through their online store.
You will also need a male to male VGA cable to attach the adapter to the projector.
You can find modestly priced cables at monoprice or other retailers. example:
Plug the cable into your projector and then plug the adapter into your MacBook. The MacBook will automatically resize your picture to the appropriate resolution for the projector.

How do i reset the lamp hours on viewsonic pj503d i cant afford another bulb right now and i know theres a way to reset it just trying to buy some time untill i can afford one thanks alot

Though you can reset timer in the info menu it is unwise to do so as the bulbs can explode if they go past there usage time and can cause damage to projector.
Have a look on ebay there are a lot of bulbs on there maybe you can find a cheap one.
