Lamp/cover light I cannot seem to get the lamp to kick on. it was working fine and then all of a sudden the lamp/cover light came on. i've tried everything, taking it out, dusting it, tighting screws.. nothing. it still wont turn on. the lamp is new so its not that lamp. the cover is on fine so i dont know what the problem is. Any ideas?

    Yep, I have the same problem. First the bulb went out, blank, etc. thus the lamp light came on steady, pointing to replace bulb. So, I ordered a new one, put it in and did follow the instructions carefully. I did that lamp reset RESET, left arrow, right arrow, ENTER all one after another under 5 seconds. Still cannot get rid of the problem, new bulb will still not come on. I am at a loss and classes start next week.



    Please advise if you have figured it out.



    Thank you,

    Cary

SOURCE: Both the LAMP/COVER and FAN/TEMP indicator lights come on, not blinking

with both lights solid. according to the manual all it says is (there is an electrical failure inside the unit, please take to an authorized servicer). if you are able to do this yourself you will need the schematics and a voltmeter to start testing your voltages. your lamp is fine so dont waste your money replacing that anymore. if you would like the service manual send me an email to fixya@markservicepro.com.

SOURCE: Projector turns off after 30 seconds.

I had the same problem I replaced the motor/lense cover unit at the cost of $AU140.00 and that fixed it.

Hi Marsat!

Actually both the filter cover and lamp covers have a long straight plastic part which is inserted in small hole. At the end of the holes are micro switches. When you fit the filter cover this switch is pressed and projector knows that it is ok to turn on. Similarly if lamp cover is loose the micro switch is not fully pressed resulting in this message. Tightening it presses the micro swith and the indication vanishes. In your case if plastic parts are intact, lamp cover screw is fully tight, filter is clean and properly seated with a click sound, then may be some micro switch has malfunctioned and you have no option but to take the projector to some qualified repariman.

I have had the same problem with 3 Sony VPL-EX1s and Sony will not answer emails regarding the problem. Hence I wont be purchasing Sony projectors again.

Sounds like there is a sheet of paper jammed in it. Try taking off the roller access panel in the back (not the access panel by the cartridges). Make sure to only use clean sheets with proper humidity level to avoid jams. Also fan the sheets before feeding to disperse any static.

My MFC-7820n was printing perfectly and now, suddenly, all pages are very light and most toner doesn't seem to be fusing to the paper. The page 'sort of' prints but it's illegible. I have installed a new...


If the toner is not getting completely fused to the paper (i.e. you can rub it off with your fingers either completely or partially), then there is something wrong in the fuser section. The fuser is nothing more than two rolls pressed together with heat lamps inside (usually just one roll has a lamp). Perhaps a spring fell off? or the lamp is burned out.
