Nec vt48 lamp won't light status blinks six times

Old lamp was getting dim so replaced with new lamp tries to start twice before power turns orange then status flashes red six times delay of five seconds then repeats. Tried my old lamp again fired up without problems so tried with second new lamp but had same problem as my first replacement lamp. Old one still works. I find it hard to believe both new lamps faulty any ideas?

SOURCE: Status light blinking red

If it is a lamp error try this:
When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.

For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]

SOURCE: Blinking status light

Replacing the lamp with an old one was helpful for me. Good news: the projector itself not faulty. Bad news: I have two projectors with the same issue at the same time (the lamps were replaced also at the same time) after only 400 hours of running.

Does a lamp error message (6 blinking red status lights) mean the lamp needs to be replaced? or could something else be wrong.


According to NEC technical support, if the status light flashes red six times, this could indicate a defective lamp. If a new lamp is installed and the project still won't turn on, the projector will need service.

MY new NEC NP215 just turn off and has the Status Indicator light red blinking 6 times. It is not the Lamp because the Projector is new.


unfortunately even if it's a new projector, the lamp can go bad. since you stated that it's new, i would get in contact with NEC support, and let me know what going on. it should be still covered under warranty.

I have a NEC VT470 Projector. The power light is steady orange and the status light blinks red 6 times.


steady orange means projector in standby mode
red light 6 times is a lamp error.
either the lamp is old and wont start up or the ballast power pcb is not working.
can you hear the sparking of the high voltage trying to strike the lamp.
if you can then the lamp may be dodgy.
can you borrow one to test it out

HELP! I changed the bulb already. My NEC VT 470 won't turn the bulb on. The green power light comes on, then the status light blinks green about 12 times, several rotations. Then the fan comes on, the...


Sounds like you lamp ballast has gone bad. I good way to verify this is, when you press power on the projector look inside the lens. If you see a small amount of light, then the ballast is good, and the lamp is bad. If there is no light then chances are the ballast is bad.
