Question about Dell 4100MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

I can't tell positive from negative

The bulb in my dell 4100mp just burnt out, i tried to get a new one but all that i could get was the bare bulb itself. i still have all the screws and peices of the previous housing, but now i need to connect the wires to the new bulb, but i can't tell which wire is for the positive terminal and which one is for the negative terminal. the wires are not marked (yet).

i would really rather not leave it to the gods of chance.

if you could tell me relative to the connector that plugs into the projector that'd help a great deal, i have the plug facing me with the rounded sides up.... which is the wire is which?

Will not power on

when you plug it in does the stand by light come on?
or when you press the power button does it not start up.

what you can try to do is reseat the bulb and try again, sometimes if the bulb isn't inserted properly or is slightly off will not work.

and for Kensington locks are for security purposes when displaying an item.

i.e. attach one end to table and the other to laptop

The 4100mp dell projector will kick off about 5 minutes after bing turned on. I read somthing about a filter possiblly being cleaned.

Try to reset the lamp hour of your projector. For that do the following.
1. power on the projector.
2. Press the menu button
3. select lamp settings
4. Select lamp reset
5. Select yes to reset the lamp hour.

Dell 4100MP Image Not Centered Thru Lens

No to your question. The lens is fixed it cannot shift horizontally only although there are projectors that can do this. I am sure you have the front foot retracted? I have had to do the same as you are doing or find a lower table.
