Question about Dell 2300MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Bad Lamp lights even with new bulb.

My projector, after 50-75 hours of use, quit working and the Bad Lamp light came on. I took the old bulb out but couldn't see anything wrong with it. After ordering a new bulb and installing it the Bad Lamp light still comes on and the projector doesn't work. Thanks for any suggestions, Dean

    Same problem, I replaced the Bulb and the projector works for about 10 seconds and then goes out with the Lamp Indictor line coming on.

    used the original bulb for a few years about 1500 hours.
    bought a new one have less than 10 hours on the lamp and the projector went out and the bad lamp light came on. What can be done?

    Same lamp light after a new bulb. Works fine for about 10-15mins, then orange lamp light and unit shuts off. Unplugging the power cord resets the unit, only to do it again.

    I just reset the lamp time under the on screen display(OSD) management, and that seemed to have fixed my prob...but time will tell.

    Yep, same issue. Worked fine during a test and then the orange light later. I also do not get a fan so I guess with the lamp out, the whole unit shuts down. Am concerned to hear that replacements are problematic. At $349 I'd like to think all would be well . . .
