Replacement bulb not working on HP vp6121


The ballast board controls the bulb. It is the board with the wires going to the bulb socket. Replace that and you'll have a working projector.

Hi,
It sounds like you should check the lamp to see if it has too many hours on it. The bulb should look pretty clear & round without bulging & dark spots or fogging. If it has a lot of hours it needs to be replaced. It may also be a fan that is not turning on or is not turning fast enough. Use canned air & while unplugged spray the fans to make them spin fast. You can use a flashlight to try & locate the fans behind the vented areas arount the case. If a fan is not working properly it will cause the unit to shut down. Also check your indicator lights on top & compare with the troubleshooting portion of the user guide. You can get a user guide download from google search.
Good luck,
Jim

My EP 758 is 4 years old and has 1500 hours on its second bulb. I use it for home use with a satellite input (dish network). It just started flickering a couple days ago. The main picture is still there...


Hi,

It sounds like the projector itself has a fault. Sadly it's often uneconomic to repair budget projectors which are out of warranty when the cost of repair is compared to that of replacement. You should speak to Optoma support and see who their local agent is, and then ask for a quote.

UK support can be found here

They will usually charge a fee to have a look and then they'll offer an estimate for repair.

Lamp


Hi Striker 53

Yes , a flickering image and dimming is a very clear indication that the lamp is going.

To make 100% sure and to give you some peace of mind - take out the lamp and you will either see vein like looking marks on the lamp or discolouration or even that there is a bubble at the end of the lamp's shaft.

Do keep in mind that a lamp normally gets a rating of say 2000-3000 hours , but that is only a estimate from the manufacturers factory. I've had lamps that had less than 300 hours on them , that needed replacement.

Once you replaced the lamp , remember to reset the lamp timer.

Hp VP121 needs new bulb?


Hi there

Take out the lamp and check for any marks on the inside ( shaft ) of the lamp. If there is marks or discolouration on it then you can be 100% sure it is the lamp.

Image flickers and colors off


I have the same problem as philvo. I was watching, the projector was operating normally, I heard a snap, there was a flash of light behind me I believe, and my Mitsubishi XD300U projector went to a black and white picture. That is all it will show now. All lights show normal operation. I would like to know if it is worth getting repaired. Does anyone have any ideas?
