Question about Acer PD523 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

PD523 lamp icon

I have an Icon that looks like the lamp in red with a circle with an X through it. No one is able to tell me what this is and it is not documented. Does it mean that the lamp life is near its end. I do not believe i am anywhere close to the 2000 hours of lamp life

Press MENU on the remote (with the projector running of course).
In the window that comes up on screen, there are a series of icons on the left side of the screen, and the currently selected one will be highlighted (yellow if memory serves me correctly) scroll down through the icons to the very last one - the Information icon.
The Lamp Timer (lamp hours) will now be showing on the screen, below technical info about the current signal feeding the projector. The 'Lamp Timer' information is at about the centre of the screen :o)

Can't get the lamp light to turn off on my sanyo xp57 projector. replaced the lamp and the lamp warning light won't shut off.

Go into the menu and look for the settings icon. Under the setting icon you should see a lamp counter reset button. Select that and the lamp replacement light will go out.

PD523 no picture, led blinks

Hy !

Seems to be the colorwheel. When a segment is broken, the unbalanced wheel causes vibrations. Costs approx. 100-150$. Take away back and top so you can see if wheel is not complete.

Good Luck!

---------->> My Infocus Screen Play 4805 -Popped*

Hello David,
The best way to find the best price is to do some hunting/research. Google "infocus 4805 lamp"
and wade through to find the best price.
You will find instructions on the lamp replacement procedure in the manual. If you dont have the user manual browse to and search infocus 4805 and on their spcifications page there is a "user manual" Acrobat PDF icon.
click on the icon to open the manual in pdf format

Take Care!

Unit turning off after displaying red pc chip icon

Hi whitiezn

If you say that this unit is very new , it should on all accounts still be under warranty.

Contact your local Toshiba Service Centre and have this problem sorted out on their account - the machine should still be under warranty.
