Question about Dell 3200MP Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Dell 3200mp Hi, How do i reset the lamp hour`s? I replaced the lamp. It was flickering, loosing color and would shut off in 10 to 15 minutes. I go to the onscreen menu and go to management. The hour`s say 0 hour`s. I try to reset the hour`s and it wont change it. I still have the same problem with the new lamp, flickering and shutting off. Is the lamp the problem? Will changing he hours fix the problem? Thank`s for your help.

Suggest your remove your case (screws on the bottom, except foot, and one side screw). Blow out your projector paying special attention to your color wheel assembly, this part gets dusty and causes your described problem.

Im not sure sounds like its something internal thats not related to the lamp reset (board or component failure). I have a totally different problem. I have a bad dlp chip and need a donor unit to replace if you dont get this fixed and want to sell it email me @ussmillerco@yahoo.com and let me know. Good luck thx sean

    The picture shake is caused by the DLP chip loosing sync with the color wheel, caused by dust on the sync sensor that is reading the color wheel.
    I had the identical problem with a new lamp until I blew out the system, even though visually it looked clean. No issues since cleaning, just need to be careful where the dust is blown.

Dell 3200mp lamp


are both of the lamps the same? have you installed it correctly in the socket. you might need to do a cold start for your projector. unlpugg it and try to wait for 5 minutes before plugging it again and turning it on. one your projector detected that a new lamp is intalled, it should work fine now. but if its still not working, you might want to try and replace the new lamp again. sometimes this happens.

hope this helps.

You need a replacement color wheel (that is the name of the broken plastic disc, likely glass). I have been unable to source one. Recommend you buy a used projector with a bad lamp, usually less than $100 on eBay and just put your good lamp into it. Keep your old one for parts.

Lamp will not stay on more than 1 hour and during that time it flickers and the color fades in and out


Your lamp is nearing the end of it's life. Contact Dell about a replacement lamp.

Replaced the lamp in my Dell 3200mp projector when the lamp indicator came on. After replacing the lamp indicator is off , but the lamp will not even attempt to light. Anything else I can check?


Hi,
did the old lamp fail? Or did the lamp light just come on?
Firstly I would disconnect the mains and carefully put the old lamp back in. Test the projector. Then put the new one back in and test.
There can be problems with lamps not being seated correctly, and/or the lamp cover not being fully closed.
Post back for more help if required.

Dell 3200MP projector. Lamp warning light comes on after approx 30 minutes of use and the lamp turns off. Bulb is new. I am not sure what the warning light is indicating.


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Hi Tara

This normally indicates that the lamp will need replacement.

The Ibook and this Projector are compatible as long as you run a Microsoft operating system i.e. Windows 98' and higher.

When replacing the lamp , you can just as well clean out the Projector - this is quite important as it prolongs the life of your lamp.

Hi Lagnitta

Take out the lamp and check for any irregularities like discolouration and marks.

This is unfortunately dammage to the lamp and the lamp will need replacement.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dell 3200 Projector color yellow is grey


Hi tweezers

NO , it will definitelly not solve the problem at all.

Usually if there is a discoloration it is either the colourwheel ( turn the Projector upside down and back again - if you hear anything loose falling around on the inside - then your clourwheel is broken) But the unit will switch off almost 98% of the time if the clourwheel was faulty.

Otherwise it is gonna be your Mainboard that needs repair or replacement. Must warn you it is a expensive part to have replaced.
