Question about Sony VPL-VW100 (Ruby) Multimedia Projector

4 Answers

Sony Projector OK here is how it goes there is a repeating pattern of flashes: everytime the green (standby) light flashes 9 or 10 times the orange (Lamp cover) flashes one time. 4 green flashes after the orange flashes once, there will be 4 to 5 clicks inside the unit. If and when the lamp comes on it will be as a result of those 4 to 5 clicks inside the unit. Last night, after several atempts (I also do the reset routine [reset,<,>,enter] which does not seem to have any effect) we were able to watch TV all night no problem. Thanks for your effort Hubert

Ok we're back to the flashing lamp cover LED. The green flashes you are seeing is the TV trying to start up. After it tries for awhile, it will eventually shut down and display an error code, in this case, the lamp cover LED flashing which means either the lamp cover, filter cover or main cabinet sensing switches are not closed, are intermittent or have some kind of wiring issue. A solid lamp cover light (no flashing) would point to the lamp and lamp drive, but the flashing light points to the switches. Give me an email address and I'll send you the training and troubleshooting manual so you can see for yourself. Any ther help needed, please don't hesitate to ask.

My Sony VPL-VW100 has a problem turning on, that's only worsened throughout this year. It will give a series of 4 audible clicks, the green and orange lights will intermittently flash -- and will repeat this pattern about a half dozen times before it gives up. If I'm persistent and go thru this cycle several times, it almost always comes on -- except when the media room is hot [usually in excess of 85 deg F].

Is this something I can fix myself, or does it require send in / tear down. When functioning properly, the Ruby gives no indications that the lamp or filter are reaching their end of life. I've cleaned the filter, that did not work.

Thanks in advance for your help, I can be best reached at fitchbuck@qwest.net and 253-891-2855.

On/Standby light flashes red four times


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

What does it mean when that blinking green light turns to orange one in lp 350?


Hi
This would be "Standby"
When you press standby, the display and audio turn off and a blank screen is displayed for 15 minutes.
You can change the amount of time the projector stays in standby mode; see “Standby Time” on page 27 for details.
The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.
• If you press standby again within 15 minutes, the projector returns to normal operations immediately. The LED changes from orange to green.
• If you press standby again after 15 minutes, there is about a 60 second delay before the lamp turns back on. The LED flashes green while the lamp is re-lighting.
• If you don’t press standby again, the lamp turns off after 15 minutes. The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.

OK It SOUNDS like you have problems on one of the two power boards (designated GA and GB). There are a couple of things I need you to do the next time it acts up.
1) if any lights flash, count the number of flashes. It should be a repeating cylce of so many flashes.
2) If it won't come on, unplug it for 3 or 4 minutes (to let the power supplies discharge) and then plug it back it but don't try to power it on. Count the number of clicks you hear right after you plug it in. This is very important and it tells me if one section of the supply is not coming on.
I hope this helps. Feel free to rate this solution and to award the premium solution to whomever you please.

Right , if the indicator light goes from Green to Orange when shutting down , it will be the Powersupply that is giving problems and not the Ballast.
