Question about Sony Projector Lamp for VPL-HS51

1 Answer

Sony cineza vpl hs51 projector won't project

With less than 1000 hours on my lamp, it won't project with enough light to hit the screen. If I hold a card up right in front of the lens, I can see that an image is getting through, although to blurry to read anything. If the lamp needs replacing, would you be able to see anything? I'd rather not replace the lamp, if it's another problem. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

The lamp may not have been changed - just the timer reset - How many hours has the lamp really done - 1000, 3000, 5000?
If you know that the hours are genuine, then was the quartz bulb contaminated with a touch of oil from skin contact?
This will substantially shorten lamp life, due to the quartz going milky and opaque.
The easiest way to check, is to pull the lamp and have a look at the bulb.

If need be replace the lamp and reset the lamp timer.

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS51
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter

I replaced the lamp, it worked for 5 days, now when i power it on, i get no light


it could be due to an incompatible lamp which has blown once again or it could be due to a faulty ballast
open the lamp and see if all looks good!
if lamp looks ok, u need to check the ballast,
before that just do a quick check on the small switches which are under the filter cover.
if the cover locks have got damaged then the switches will not close and hence show a similar problem.
this is the most common problem with SONY projectors
