Question about Mitsubishi XD70U Multimedia Projector

Open Question

I have a portable projector Mitsubishi XD70U and doesn't show up

I replaced the lamp. but it still has the two red lights Standby and Auto. If I turn it off and turn it on again with the standby botton pressed, the fan works for a second and stops, and comes again, when I release the standby botton, the two lights are flashing in red again, and the fan doesn't work. The lamp never turns on.

If your comfortable w/surface mount troubleshooting and soldering, download the service manual from elsewhere online. Part of the troubleshooting tree for this type of problem is to check the surface mount fuses on the underside on the Main PWB (schematic page 1/8). On mine, the 12V surface mount fuse, F3004 (2.3A) was open (quadrant C1 on the schematic). Replaced it, reassembled the projector (3 interlocks don't 'cha know) and it came up just fine.

SOURCE: Lamp turns off

The solution is a weird one. I had the same problem with my Sony Cienza VPL-HS1. Run for about 5 minutes and then the lamp would go out. The warning would show that Lamp/Cover was an issue. I assumed the lamp had reached its lifespan.
Wrong.
All it was, was the filter sitting in the filter box has a small trigger switch that turns off the lamp as a safety when someone inadvertently opens the cover for the filter.
Well, strangely enough, the box and the cover are sized in a way to expand when they heat up. (which they do aggressively) When they heat up they expand, and ever so slightly move the filter away from the switch far enough to trigger it to the off position (only about 1/64th of an inch).
Thats why when some of you tip your projector on its side it runs ok (gravity pushing the filter back in place).
The solution is to put a tiny strip of duct tape along the far edge (the edge opposite of the switch) of the filter on its plastic surround. This will snug-up the filter harder against the switch. Even when it tries to shift under expansion and contraction, it will not allow the switch to poke out far enough to turn off.
So, a penny of tape does the job!

Hi there

Have you replaced the lamp ?

If you haven't - take out the lamp and chech for any irregularity on it - i.e. - discolouration , vein like looking marks ( black or white ) and also if the shape of the shaft is off.

If there is no visible damage it might be a faulty Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) - especially if you cannot get it out of stanby once it has shut down.

Ok, so forgive me, I'm going by memory. Take the top cover off (4 screws on the side). Take the top silver shield off, look at the screws and only take off the ones you need. It's ok if you take more off, but its just more screws to track. You will need to take off the back outer cover. You will need to unscrew the hexagonal screws that the vga-out port uses to screw the connector to, as these are holding the back plate on. Once you get in, the board you need to look at is on the bottom back. Look for a capacitor that has a rounded top, not flat like the others. You will need to replace this with the same voltage and capacitance. Try an electronics site on the internet to get the right replacement if you cannot find it locally. Sorry for the poor instructions, but its just been too long. As a practice, take pictures as you go (during removal of parts) and you can use them to reinstall. Hope this helps as mine is still working.

Hello toma_leonard,

First check your lamp to make sure it is seated properly in the socket.
Then check all of your interlocks (see your manual for locations), these are usually located on any hatches or doors that allow access to the lamp and or fan area. Once you check your interlocks make sure the filter and fan area is clear of dust, (some projectors have air flow sensors), and the recheck the interlocks. Once this is done , If the interlocks are not broken, or the lamp fuse blown, the projector should be working. If not it is the lamp that needs changing.

I know this may be expensive, however these lamps do go bad, as much as we wish they would not.

If you still feel it is not the lamp, have a technician check the voltage levels to the lamp and the levels of the control board circuitry.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

SOURCE: Flashing standby,power on,lamp lights with no fan

Most problems with the lamps are covered in the manuels for these projectors , however none user technical difficulties are not .. ie where it is needed to open the unit not recomended to the untrained as a screwdiver in the wrong place can cause irepairable harm let alone death ?
To check if it is your bulb simply take the unit to an engineer for an estimate usually free at least you will know whats wrong and can go from there .. and if you do have a working bulb an ebay replacement is probably the cheaper conclusion to your problem ... regards Vortash

Why does my Mitsubishi XD221U projector click and blink red/green on the power light when turned on?


All projectors run a self diagnosis when you press the power button. This does a kind of "pre flight check". If some component isn't working right then the projector won't fire up.

There's no mystery to these status lights. The answer to what they show is written in the manual. Sorry to be blunt, but if you had bothered to read your manual then you would know that red green flashing power light means that the lamp housing cover isn't closed properly. If it is the status light, then it means that the lamp has gone past its due time for replacement. I only know this because I read the bit in the manual just now about the Status Lights.

Replaced bulb yesterday worked fine. Today light will not turn on. projector turns on both lights green for 10 seconds, then power goes red and status blinks green for about 5 seconds, then status light...


green green is power on, normal
then it tries to light the lamp, but it can't so the protection circuit comes activated.
you get red and green blinking

Then it goes to standby, red and off.

so something has happened to the lamp, or lamp ballast power supply.
Take the lamp out and check if all is OK with the 2 terminals in the connector, and the leads to the lamp are intact.

Failing that, I would suspect the ballast lamp power unit

I just replaced the lamp, but the projector won't power up. It has 2 solid red lights


To resolve the issue, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the master power switch, disconnect the power cord, and then wait a short time.
2. Reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the master power switch. 3. If the previous steps don’t resolve the issue, the lamp might be at the end of its life. (double check that you get a good one lamp, and that are installed correctly)
4. If your projector still doesn’t turn on, turn off the master power switch, disconnect the power cord, and then contact your local repair shop for Fix the Board on the prjector

Try the menu feature, then installation, image reverse until it gets to the correct position. Note, the Image Reverse rotates in quarters. You can also access the Menu feature from the projector. It just happened to me and as I was looking for answers and playing around with it, I fixed it!
Good Luck!
