New bulb installed and it takes 10 plus minutes to start

I installed a new bulb 2 uses/8 hours ago and the system takes 10 plus minutes to start up. I have had to turn the unit on and off a few times this last startup in order for the bulb to work.

I have reset the factory settings and reset the bulb hours....what else can I do?

Exchange the lamp under warranty...
You've tried almost everything else.
It's not that uncommon to experience "infancy failure" with a brand new lamp.

If the problem persists with the replacements replacement then I would suspect the Lamp power supply (Ballast) is failing.

MY sanyo plc wl 2500 trurns off after a 1 minute working and i cant start it before. I take out powercable and put it back. 2 days ago lamp has changed but same problem stays. What shoul i try next?


1st try cleaning all vents and make sure nothing is blocking any sides of projector. Also, most projectors monitor lamp hours. Make sure the lamp hours have been reset to zero for the new bulb. Instructions to do this are in the manual.

Dark spot


These bulbs are very sensitive to contamination. When installing a bulb, do not touch it with your fingers, as this will leave your natural oils on it and that will become a hot spot and burn out the lamp.
Use a clean piece of toilet tissue when installing the new lamp to eliminate the above.
Good luck!

Turns on and runs for 2minutes and shuts off


Hi, Did you buy it new? How many hours does it have on it. I have a Sharp projector for which I bought a used bulb which started for 1 - 2 mins then shut off. Restarted a minute later then shut off again. I bought a new bulb and that solved the problem. It could also be a weak ballast if the bulb has low hours or if the filters are dirty, it could overheat and shut off. Make sure the filters are clean and the cooling fans are running and the unit has good ventilation.

Hope this helps,

I have a VPL-CX70 that has a new lamp (less than 50 hours) and the hours were reset to 0 when the new one was installed. However, today, the lamp cover LED started blinking and the projector shut itself...


The bulb is not lighting correctly.
Take out the bulb and check the connectors are not dirty and reinsert.
See if you can see the bulb looks ok, you may be unlucky that the bulb has prematurely failed (hope not)
Try again to start it.

Lamp and temp lights come on after power up and stay on. Lamp only has 330 hours on it.


OK, that explains it. The bulb you have installed in the projector might be the original bulb that came with the projecoter when it was new. Just becuase it states 334 hours does not mean it is new. In fact, you could have a original bulb with 3000 hrs and reset the hour timer on the projector, which means your 3000 hour bulb might have 3334 hours on it because the person who owned it before you, reset the hour timer.. Best bet, buy a new bulb and reset the hour meter and see what happens. If you have the same problem, then your ballest might needs to be replace which is rare...

Use the warranty! since you anly had it for 8 weeks, and the waaranty last for one year, go back with it and get it repaired or get a new bulb. A buld last at least 2500 hours, in eco mode it last for over 3000 hours.

Good luck to you

Can you tell me why the optoma HD72I lamp will turn off after just a few minutes of running, the lamp is still fine


I have the same problem. I got a new bulb and it worked for about 1000 hours, then the new bulb started having the same problem. So, I was about to buy another bulb, and I figured why not try the original bulb. IT WORKED! For a couple weeks... Then it started doing it again. Obviously there was nothing wrong with the original bulb, and there is nothing wrong with the new bulb, but I have 2 bulbs that do it now. So, is there any way to just tell the projector run the bulb till it actually dies and not turn it off because it thinks it is about to die.

My picture brightness is uneven - there is a persistant bright field on my screen.


I have the exact same problem with my AE700. It a started about the same time, around 2500 hours for me. I lived with it untill I could afford a new bulb which arrived yesterday. The old bulb was still working at a 3603 hours when I installed the new one. But the new bulb didn't fix the problem for me either. I may try to take it apart this weekend and give it a good cleaning. Andy
