Bulb not coming on?

When I turn on my projector, the green power light comes on and the fan turns on for a split second and turns off then nothing happens. The bulb is fairly new maybe 1/2 lifetime.

    I have same problem. The green light comes on but my fan and lamp don't. I cleaned the filter but still nothing. I would buy a lamp but with the fan not coming on either, I don't know if that will solve the problem.

    Same problem here.  Lamp won't come on.  Standby/On light blinks for 30-40 seconds, then lamp light flashes and projector goes to Standby.  New bulb just installed.  If I reseat the bulb, projector works for a little while.

    same problem. We replaced the bulb. Unit powers on with no light and then off again. Took it to repair shop who thought it was the ballast. When replacing that didn't work, they contacted Panasonic. Still waiting for our projector to be fixed. They have another unit with the same problem in their shop. Panasonic Tech Support told me they would contact their Repair shop.

    I have exactly the same problem. Green light, no fan, no map light. Cut out very suddenly and now won't work again. + Can't switch off using power button.

I have an optima hd180 that will not power up. The projector was indicating a bad bulb, so I replaced that with a new one. Now it still will not power up and the fan does not come on either.


Problem w/ OEM bulb, it causes a lot of issues from my experience. Your ballast might have gone bad, hopefully it's just that. Check the voltage output of the ballast, make sure you're getting the proper amount.

I turn on the 4805,green led blinks & bulb does not come on?


After a few minuets does the green blinking light turn to a red blinking light?

If so the problem is the lamp did not strike.Either the lamp has failed (most likely) or there is a problem with the power supply (less likely)

Projector problem


I generally fix this by re-seating the bulb housing. Take it out and put it back in. Look for cracking at the base of the bulb on the mirrored surface. It could be a barely functioning bulb that isn't busted, but can't initialize. I would take it to a shop that has the same bub type in a housing and make a quick switch.
