Question about ViewSonic PJ500 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

The lamp continues to flash red lights for power and lamp

I have a ViewSonic PJ500 and I thought the bulb had blown even though it wasn't that old.  I bought a new bulb and put it in and still keeps going from green to flashing red power and lamp lights.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem as posted about power starting green then going to flashing red. I called support and the recommended re seating the bulb or getting a new one. Any other suggestions?

I have the same problem as posted too, ordered 3 new lamps and they all still do the same thing. I`m starting to think its the projector that has a problem. Anyone got a solution other then keep buying new lamps and try getting it to work... I mean, after 3, how bad lucky can you be that they are all bad lamps...

When i put a new bulb in my projector panasonic ptae1000 its shows green how do i fix this


A new bulb may just be showing up a problem that wasn't apparent with the lower brightness coming from an old bulb.
Try putting the old bulb back in and look very carefully and see if the problem is still there.
If the green is uniform over the whole screen then it may be fixed by setting a colour level change in the menu.
If it varies over the screen then it is probably a polarizer affected by age and heating.

I turn on my Viewsonic PJD6251 but the lamp does not come on, and after a few seconds I get 2 red lights TEMP and LAMP. It is new, only 2 weeks I barely used. Good care.


sounds like a bad bulb

projectors get a resistance reading from the bulb and if it doesnt get right value it will give you the double red lights

only other thing it could be is if the fans in projector are not turning on

call viewsonic and tell them issue and make them resolve issue

or

if unit is only 2 weeks old bring it back to store and get replacement or call viewsonic and get them to send you replacement unit - it is too new to mess with it yourself and take chance on voiding warranty

If the LAMP INDICATOR flashing red then.
Problem: Lamp circuit failure
Sulution: your two lamps are ok you need to repair the lamp drive circuit this is repairable and if you don't want to repair you buy a new one lamp circuit and install it.

My Viewsonic PJ 500 projecter light is not turning on. "lamp" light is blinking.


That means that the bulb is bad and beeds to be replace, This usually happens after 1000 hours of use.

My Viewsonic PJ500 , The white bottom meets yellowish, and the edges that are black, they meet blue. Thanks!


Hello,

if this is a DLP projector then the light tunnel needs to be adjusted or replaced or the colorwheel index needs to be adjusted if what you are describing is ghosting of sorts.
If this is an LCD projector your green lcd panel could be burnt, or you could have true ghosting that needs to be adjusted with the options in the hidden menu and should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing.

Good luck

Can't get my Viewsonic projector to project an image AND show image on my laptop screen


Hold the FN+CRT/LCD or (it could be an icon/image of a screen) simultanesouly and then keep press the CRT/LCD key it should eventually get around to displaying an image on just the projector or projector and laptop screen
