New lamp died - won't light

Just replaced the lamp for the HT 1100 with an NEC lamp. It worked for a couple of weeks and now it won't light. Status light blinks 6 times indicating a restart needed. But even after that it doesn't light. The bulb seems fine and there are no other warnings. bad bulb? Something else?

Does a lamp error message (6 blinking red status lights) mean the lamp needs to be replaced? or could something else be wrong.

According to NEC technical support, if the status light flashes red six times, this could indicate a defective lamp. If a new lamp is installed and the project still won't turn on, the projector will need service.

I have solved that problems by replacing the plastic Lamp Cover. NEC says they wear out over the years due to the heat. If you have a spare VT700 about, swap covers and see if that works. or order one from NEC, thay cost 5 dollars.

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.

NEC LT240 has Power, Status & Lamp indicators lit & wont turn on!

If your bulb finally reaches it's end before you have the chance to replace it you unit will shut itself down and go into a permanent standby mode. Changing the bulb alone will not remedy the issue. The solution is quite simple but not posted in the manual or anywhere else that I could find for that matter! All that is required is to hold down the HELP button on your remote for 10 seconds while aiming at the infrared sensor on the unit. This will reset the units bulb timer and remove it from the standby mode.

Hi kmarie01

This is most probably a faulty Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) that will have to be replaced before the Projector will come on at all.

NEC VT47 lamp won't light

According to the manual, yes . . .probably gone past the recommended hours of lamp use. Press the OFF or the HELP button on the remote for 10 sec, this will reset the lamp hours value and allow the unit to come on. If it don't, NEC will tell you that it has to be sent to a repair center.
