    I tried all the 3 things listed, or at least the first two. No luck. I couldn't get to the menu, since the bulb won't light. I put the new and old bulb in and when I plug it in, the "light" or green "Light" indicator blinks. Then when I engerize it with the switch, the "Light" and the"Temp" indicator light up green, blink a couple of time and it shuts down.

I turn on my Viewsonic PJD6251 but the lamp does not come on, and after a few seconds I get 2 red lights TEMP and LAMP. It is new, only 2 weeks I barely used. Good care.


sounds like a bad bulb

projectors get a resistance reading from the bulb and if it doesnt get right value it will give you the double red lights

only other thing it could be is if the fans in projector are not turning on

call viewsonic and tell them issue and make them resolve issue

or

if unit is only 2 weeks old bring it back to store and get replacement or call viewsonic and get them to send you replacement unit - it is too new to mess with it yourself and take chance on voiding warranty

After changing the bulb image will not come on and solid orange light appears


Other then POWER BUTTON light there are three lights more
1. lamp indicator
2. temperature indicator
3. computer input
witch one light is flashing RED or illuminated RED with POWER BUTTON orange light.
If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself

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...

Viewsonic PJ550 lamp


Problem 1) The projector should put out a burst of 7000-15000 volts to start the lamp, and then immediately drop down to 60-100 vlts to keep the lamp lit. It sounds like the bulb blowing took out your ballast, or the ballast going out took the bulb (uncontrolled current = overheated bulb = boom)

Problem 2) Thats not a problem at all. HID lighting uses an arc to create light, just like welding creates light. Since it uses an arc, and not the heating of metal, there is no filament to test the resistance of. All the bulb is, is a special mixture of gasses and two very durable electrodes, with a gap in between.
