Sony vpl cs7 lamp cover problem

I saw the following question from you back in 2007. I just want to know if you manage to fix it, and if, how,  since we now have the same problem.
thanks MF

The lamp cover is half open and half closed. I switch the projector on and the lamp indicator light flashes - the projector works for about 10 seconds and displays the output image on the wall but then the on/off button flashes green constantly and it stops projecting. 

Is this easily fixed?

thanks

To reset the lamp timer:
1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual).
2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER.
3) Timer should now read '0'.

Hi there

Your lamp is not properly inserted.

The lamp door should close easily if your lamp is in correct.

If teh lamp door is not closed properly then the mashine will keep on shutting down.

Can only view image in a very dark room.


If you need it you can get the user manual on this link; http://esupport.sony.com/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=VPLCS7 check page 29 - brightness setting adjustment just to be sure this is not the problem. check page 36 - lamp mode - try high if not already set on it. Check page 42 - cleaning the filter - this can stop the projector functioning properly, but i don't think it's the problem in this case If the image is being projected exactly as normal, apart from the brightness, then the problem is most likely a failing bulb, despite the low hour count. Just possibly (but unlikely)there is a power supply problem that is not feeding enough voltage to the lamp, only way to tell for sure would be to either get a meter on the lamp terminals, which looks practically impossible with the lamp in place, (possibly will give a reading without the lamp, but the terminals may be disconnected from the power when the lamp is removed), or replace the lamp. Are there any flashing lights or error messages at all, does the projector seem hotter than usual, is the fan running as normal? could you actually see any error messages on the projected image if they were there? try really hard to read them if you think there could be something there. Try a different input source, unlikely problem but possible. Especially in smoky environments the lens can get quite a thick layer of grime on the outside - easily cleaned off gently with some vinegar and soft paper towel/soft cloth. This made enough difference on a similar one in a bar near me to give them 3 months more with the same bulb. Worth a try. If you need to source a bulb you need Sony LMP-E180 there appear to be no cheaper substitutes, you can get one direct from sony uk on this link; http://www.sony.co.uk/view/ShowArticle.action?articlesection=1&article=1158155174490&site=odw_en_GB These lamps are often cheaper from the US even with postage, if you can find a dealer who will send you one, check this link for some ideas; http://www1.epinions.com/t-sony-lmpe180 I got a lamp for a similar sony projector sent to spain a few months ago, saving about $280!!! - I'll keep trying to find the details of the company I used, no luck at the minute. Hope this helps, post back if you have any more info :)

Hello, good day. My problem is relationship my sony xga vpl - ex7 not turn on. Only lighting the lamp/cover.


Hi,
Either lamp is dead/ broken in projector or lamp cover is not fixed properly (its located at bottom side)
Please check lamp and replace it if its broken and make sure lamp cover is fixed back on its location securely after lamp replacement/ checking.
Thanks.

Lamp/Cover Error


I had the same problem with a "Sony VPL-ES3" projector. The lamp cover light would flash and the projector wouldn't turn on.
I think its a problem with a filter cover. This fixed the problem for me: 
  1. Plug out the projector
  2. Click off the filter at the bottom of the projector.
  3. Plug the projector back in. (the lamp cover light should flash)
  4. Plug the projector out again.
  5. Put the filter cover back on.
  6. Plug the projector in again and it should work fine.
This has worked for me every time I have had this problem.
