Question about Philips LC 4500 projector lamp Projector Lamp

1 Answer

Cant see anything

I bought a used Philips Lc 4246 projector. They informed me that the bulb was almost out on it. I waited untill the last possible second to change it. The philips logo started getting blurry but after awhile it would warm up, then the philips logo would look fine on the wall and we could play the movies. I used it untill it wouldnt work even after leaving it on a long time. I bought a new bulb but it the picture is still blurry and it takes a long time to warm up and finally work.

Sony Projector VPL-CW255 is showing yellowish tint on screen. I have put in new bulb, changed filter, new cord and still yellow? Any idea what else to do?

Wire ages no matter how many times it's used. You may want to check the amount of nicotine that may be on the lens if there is smoking allowed in the room too. It will add a yellow to orange tint as well.

Bulb burned out in 1 month

Your lucky it lasted 1 month. The population thinks they are receiving inexpensive items from China. Instead they are cheap useless rubbish. You will find that anything from Asia costs half as much and only lasts 1 tenth of the time. DO THE MATHS PEOPLE WE ARE BEING RIPPED OFF. While Asia is getting rich.

My Eiki lc-x1100 is not displaying very bright. I bought is used from a university and it only has about 900 hrs. on the present bulb. Is there something else that would make it dim? Don't want to...

i would check the physicality of the lamp. once you've removed it, look around the filament of the lamp, and if you notice any dark corrosion build around it, then that's what's causing the dim image. if it looks clean and clear, it might be one of the mirrors within the projector's optical engine.

LC-XG200 bulbs where can I get one in the UK? At the moment my image looks blurred is that caused by the lamp or is some other issue?

In the first instance:

Adjust focus of the projector.

Make sure a projection screen is at least 4.1' (1.2m) from the projector.

Check Projection Lens to see if it needs cleaning.

NOTE : Moving a projector from a cool temperature location to a warm temperature location

may result in moisture condensation on Projection Lens. In such an event, leave a
projector OFF and wait until condensation disappears.

Bulb won't work

If you are sure that you installed the new bulb correctly , then I recommend that you reset your projector . Some projectors don't realize that you changed the bulb physically until you reset them .

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!

I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

This is 2000 Hours, 160 Watts, UHP lamp. dont keep it on always.Check the usage and then replace the lamp. It's better to turn off the projector after each class.

The lamp is around $400.00 for Eiki LC-SD15.
