Question about NEC LT 240K Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

NEC LT240 has Power, Status & Lamp indicators lit & wont turn on!

Last week my projector shut itself off and went into a mode where it had the Power, Status & Lamp indicators lit and it wouldn't respond to being cut on from the remote or the actual unit. All that happens when you turn the power switch in the back of the unit to the on position is the 3 indicators light up. No fan activity, no lamp activity, no anything! My bulb warning had just recently appeared a few weeks prior, so I thought the bulb must have gone out and the unit went into some sort of standby mode because it needed replacing. I ordered the new bulb and installed it but the same problem remains. I have searched the manual and the net for a solution but can't find the 3 steady lights problem in any troubleshooting menu or forum. I am desperate and dying without my projector! If anyone has a suggestion please let me know! Thank you so much!

If your bulb finally reaches it's end before you have the chance to replace it you unit will shut itself down and go into a permanent standby mode. Changing the bulb alone will not remedy the issue. The solution is quite simple but not posted in the manual or anywhere else that I could find for that matter! All that is required is to hold down the HELP button on your remote for 10 seconds while aiming at the infrared sensor on the unit. This will reset the units bulb timer and remove it from the standby mode.

SOURCE: I have a NEC VT470

steady orange means projector in standby mode
red light 6 times is a lamp error.
either the lamp is old and wont start up or the ballast power pcb is not working.
can you hear the sparking of the high voltage trying to strike the lamp.
if you can then the lamp may be dodgy.
can you borrow one to test it out

SOURCE: NEC VT595 Projector - Status light blinks red constantly

Hi Craig,

If you get no lamp light at all coming from the main projection lens then odds are the lamp ballast or power supply has failed. These can usually be repaired & is a common fault among the VT series projectors. If one of the fans are stuck the unit normally still lights up for a few seconds up to 20 seconds or more until the extra heat trips the safety shutoff & shuts down the projector.

REPAIRS:

SOURCE: Steady red status light on NEC VT45 projector.

the power supply on that model seem to go bad after a while. the caps aren't properly reted it's power needs. they dry up. if you are good at soldering, replace c1 on the board (big cap) with a cap that has a slightly higher voltage rating. or replace the whole power supply. you might not be able to get one from nec, but you can try www.projectordoctor.com

I have a NEC mt1055 and the unit just had new bulb put in here and it has the power and standby light come on and the fan doesn't turn on here and the standby light is yellow and status is red


The NEC’s work on a reducing time basis, they count the hours that they have been operational and refer to this as the life of the bulb – 1600 hours. When the 1600 hours has been reached the projector shuts itself down into standby mode never to be restarted even after changing the bulb / filters. This is because the unit needs to be reset, which needs to be done as follows (not included in any of the bulb replacement instructions):-
  • Plug Projector in so it is in standby mode – Orange light lit, Red status light lit (not flashing)
  • Using the remote control, hold down the power off button for 30-45 seconds
  • This will reset the status button, removing the red light
  • Power up the projector and select Menu
  • Select Projector Options
  • Select Set-up – a number of tabs will appear called pages
  • Arrow across the pages (MT850 is Page 5) until an option called “RESET LAMP HOURS” is shown
  • Move onto this option and press enter on the projector itself, confirm that you want to reset the counter
  • Projector is now back to life

This works for all NEC projectors, the page number may be different though where the “RESET LAMP HOURS” option resides.

NEC VT 595 wont turn on. Just red blinking light


I had this same problem with 2 NEC VT595 projectors. My problem was that there was a broken "tab" on the lamp cover (the plastic cover that slides in place over the lamp) that is supposed to depress a switch which insures the lamp cover is in place before operating the projector. The tab was broken in half and not making the connection there for causing the blinking status light (.5 sec on, 2.5 sec off) indicating a lamp housing or cover error.

Nec projector vt440 wont turn on


Hello. First check the lamp! From your description, it sounds like the projector is telling you that the lamp needs to be replaced. In "eco mode", when the power is green and the status is steady orange, that is the error message. In "high brightness mode" the status will be steady red. Hope I helped you.

NEC MT1050 Lamp Error


Does the status light stay on red? If it does then the lamp timer has exspired and will not let the projector turn back on until it is reset, at which time you should replace the lamp. To reset the timer you need the remote control, with the unit plugged in in standby mode hold down the power off button for 30 to 45 seconds until the status light goes off.

Unlock keypad on lt240 projector


If you do not know the password, then NEC can unlock the keypad after you show proof of ownership by providing the purchase receipt. Other than that it only be resolved by taking the projector to an authorized service repair center with the purchase receipt. This is the safety feature NEC employs to ensure they are providing service for the owner and to deter theft. It is a frustrating and expensive process but well worth knowing that if a projector is ever stolen, the projector basically is locked from use. Expect to pay over $200 to unlock the keypad if you take it to a repair center.

NEC projector LT220 - replaced bulb, works for 1.5 hrs then switches itself off


Hi Matt

There might be a couple of reasons for this problem.

Best is to start with the lamp - return the lamp to whoever you bought it from and insist on a another new one.

If the problem still occurs you should rather take the unit to a repairer - because it could be the Mainboard or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) that is faulty and will need replacement or repair.

Check if your unit is under warranty - because the replacement of a Mainboard is quite expensive.
