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.

Viewsonic PJ500 bulb does not come on


Hi.
Look at the base of the bulb at the filament in the center of the bulb, if buldging change he bulb first. If the porblem continues then have the units Ballast or Sometimes called the lamp driver check and replace if defective. The cheapest way is the check the voltage at the lamp connections in the housing for At least 280 volts, while turning on the unit you will need a voltage meter to do this.

Won't turn on.. Operation indicator is red, Lamp indicator is flashing red??


According to the E44W48LCD service manual, the temperature indicator red light states the projection TV shut down due to overheating. Red (flashing) states the projection TV shut down, check the cooling fan.
