Re: Horizontal Green Lines!

Hi Tim

I've seen this many times. Only way to get rid of it is to replace the Mainboard.

This will get worse as time goes by.

What could be the issue if my projector turns itself off after only running for 1-2 minutes?

It maybe a problem with your lamp as they can run for a short while then shut down.
When it shuts down do you get the lamp or temp indicator coming on?

My Sony VPL CS1 projector was working on Monday and is not working on Wednesday. Smells hot but fan is running. Light was on but now it is not on and the Lamp/Cover light is on.

check the lamp cover is it open or not. there is switch for sensing, is the lamp cover is open or not. may be it became faulty. also check the lamp is it burned or not . if found burned replace it.

Projector SONY VPLCS!

I had the same problem with a Sony VPL CS1. It's not the mainboard, but the blue filter - cost to repair runs around $500 US.
Hope that helps.

You should first check if there is any visible damage on your lamp. If not then it could be a faulty Ballast ( lamp powersupply )
