Re: Lamp goes off, LED steady red

I would call Epson support. Sounds like you have an internal fan problem.

Power indicator /red/ and warning led/red/ are lighting after ea 15 sec. a lamp never start and fans goes in OFF mode. I checked power supply lines S5V,S-5V,S16V on the Main Board . I checked unit lamp...

If power indicator light red and warning indicator red flashing than according to user manual :-
The projector has been cooled down enough and the temperature returns to normal. When turning ON the projector the WARNING indicator stops flashing. CHECK AND CLEAN THE AIR FILTER.
Experience:- 1. if the temperature is very low than temperature sensor maybe misbehave.
2. If anyone fan not working
so please you check fans.
(If lamp or lamp ballast unit faulty than after a time period the lamp indicator light ON not a warning indicator. I experience many times if any fan in projector are broken or jamed the temperature light if present otherwise warning light ON or flashing)

Power on, fan runs, get a red led at the "lamp" indicator then the projector goes to standby and shuts off. Projector is a benq MP515

Check the lamp physically if looks ok then problem suspect with Lamp ballast or lamp

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.

red light indicates lamp is expired. even though you get temporary light, the lamp is shot. Try BULBMAN.COM for a new lamp.
