Question about NEC VT570 Multimedia Projector

NEC VT695 (not a vt570) bad lamp blowing ballast board?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}I am working on 2 NEC VT695's (we have hundreds of them). However, one of them is not lighting lamps, when I put a new or known good one in it, it does not light or will try to light then go out immediately after the initial HV ignt charge. And when I take the lamp back out and put it another projector that projector will no longer work either. Can a lamp cause the ballast board to go bad on another projector? (All pins are infinite on ohms,and not shorted which I would expect with a good uhp/vhp lamp or a bad one). This is not a fluke; I have gone through 4 lamps and now 2 projectors. Do you have any Idea's?
PS- the original projector that is causing the problem seems to have a bad n-ch MOSFET on the ballast board (not shorted). But I am still confused on how one projector can burn a lamp and that lamp burn out a ballast board in another projector? Any input would be helpful.

We have the same model here at our school too. I know of two that have done exactly what you said. I am trying to figure out if this is NEC fault. Bulbs are expensive and if the projector and NEC is a fault; we will definitely be moving on to a different brand.

I have a nec vt570 projector and it has gone into bypass mode because I let the lamp go to long. I've replaced the lamp but can't reset the hour meter.Is there any way to reset without the remote

Switch on the projector in standby mode.
press the HOLD button on the remote for 10 secs.
the projector will come out of protection and you are good to go!
ensure that u replace a new lamp!
This can be done only with the NEC remote!

Np2250 lamp will not shine

The wires that go from the bulb socket to the circuit board is the ballast. This board controls the lamp operation. It is most likely the source of your problem.

I have a LT60LPLK lamp and I wanted to know how I could test it, outside of the projector, to see if it works.

Don't even think about because lamp is supplied with high voltage and You can get snapped realy badly as well You can blow ballast if you short something

Bad idea!!!

I have replaced bulbs in 3 different types of NEC projectors: a silver, older model thta uses a VT60LP bulb, model VT595 and VT470. The lamp will still not work - the power and status light just continue...

I had the same issue, what I figured out was that I never removed the lamp door correctly, causing a small plastic piece to break off. To see if this is also your problem, inspect the back of the lamp door, top right corner, if it seems a rectangular plastic piece is missing, thats the problem. It presses in a small button nearby the lamp to let the projector know it's safe to power on.

Samsung hln4365w no powerup flashing lamp & temp. can i repair myself & where do i get parts?????

There should be a lamp code sticker on the left side of the tv.bp96-00224c or bp96-oo224a are the part #'s for the 2 lamps used on this set,but you need the right one or it will blow prematurely because of 2 different ballasts used.

NEC VT47 Blink Sequence but not comming up.

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! :]
