Davis Cincevision projector help!!!

We have a Davis CineVision projector. Recently, the bulb burned out and once we replaced it we couldn't get the projector to work again. Friends suggested that there is a code to reset the projector. We do not have a manual, or remote, just the projector itself, and are desperately seeking help. Does anyone know where we can obtain an owner's manual or perhaps know what the possible problem is? Help...this $6000 projector is now useless without some help from you! (Davis is out of business now.)

Can't help you there, but the projector was also manufactured as a viewsonic litebird PJL1005, if that helps.

I have 2 epson EX31 projectors in our sanctuary that run the same image from the MAC. (song lyrics, slides, etc) Recently I replaced a bulb in one...and since then...the "White" levels in the projecto

If uniformity of the images is important, I would reccommend replacing the second bulb on the other projector with the same bulb, from the same vendor as you did the first. It may be too difficult to match them up otherwise (assuming the first bulb you bought isn't defective).

I hope this helps,

My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)

The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

I've had my projector for years now and worked perfectly. But now, there's a shadow on the right side of the screen. I cleaned the lenses and there's still a shadow. With my observations, it looks like...

Remove the bulb, look for any obstructions or damage. If you see none. Replace the bulb, usually replacing the bulb also replaces the lens, the frame around the bulb, and other components all at once making it an easy one stop fix for most visual display problems.

Replacement bulbs burn out within a month

If you did not purchase the OEM Sony manufactured bulb (model LMP-H200) then you likely acquired a poor quality "after market" lamp. I recently purchased a replacement lamp for my VW60. The list price is $369, I paid $269 from a reputable brick and mortal / on-line retailer.

If you paid substantially less than $269 or bought from an unknown on-line seller, your lamp is likely the problem. Note I have seen some shady on-line sellers (with "electric" in their name) sell knock of bulbs for the same price as the OEM.

Hope this helps.

Infocus x2, the bulb melts the small square lens even w/ fan on

either the ballast is bad and is sending too much current to the lamp, the lamps are a cheap knockoff, the thermal fuse is altered, and/or one of the fans aren't working.
