Proxima 5800 lcd projector problem

I have this older Proxima 5800 desktop projector, the lamp went poof in it years ago and i bought just the lamp and kept the reflector, dug out the old one from the ceramic that it was burried in. put a new one in along with the plaster, let it dry overnight and wired it back up to the lamp housing. powered it up and it lit up... for about 10 seconds goes out, makes like a buzzing sound, and lights up again, keeps repeating this process....   its been in the closet for years and i pulled it out again, maybe somebody could figure this out, drives me crazy, it would be nice to have it work again although i have a nice HD CRT projector for my home theater now. why does it do this? go off and on. is it the ballast?

Why is our Proxima Desktop Projector 8000 turning off after a period of time?


There is a THERMAL fuse that is used to prevent fires and electrical destruction of the unit. Lamps get very hot and unless the AIR flow is good, the temperature gets too hot and shuts down the system. The fan speed may be too low, the unit may need to be cooled down with an exterior fan? Try options.

Proxima DT 5800 works but picture is much brighter with the lights out ,what could cause to be not as bright with lights on?


The Proxima DP5800 projector is a small format low powered projector at only 650 lumens (brightness measurement). It simply doesn't have enough lumens to cut through ambient light and display a clean image. It is best used in a dark room.

Also bulb age will play a factor in overall brightness. The lamps for that projector are only rated for 700 hours, and as they near the life expectancy they can lose up to 50% of their lumens.

Dear Sir My projector Ultralight LS2 have Brightness and sharpness very weak after 10 years working. I have replaced lamp one year ago. Thanks


I would say it has done very well if it has never been cleaned or serviced.
The light engine could do with being cleaned professionally. That should restore the clarity.
Hope that helps.

Replaced bulb for a proxima c160 bulb won't strike led power button flashes red what can I do


You may have purchased an aftermarket generic lamp. The chances that the lamp is defect is about 20% with the counterfeit products....Read here for a better explanation:

I also suggest buying the original lamp as recommended by the above link. You may find yourself troubleshooting further for no reason simply by buying an aftermarket replacement.

Hi Jess

Is your PC's image splitt ?

Right click on your desktop and go to properties - then click on settings and then advanced settings.

You'll see a block with two screens on it. If only one is activated - activate the secondary screen as well.

If you are using a Notebook also try holding in the Fn ( Function ) button - just left of your spacebar and in your F-row buttons at the top there should be one with two screens on it - Differs from brand to brand of PC's.

Hope this helps you !
