Depending on the make and model, you should start by doing a hard reset. Power it down, unplug the pwr. cord and press the power button.
If this doesn't work. go into the menu on the remote and locate either reset all settings or reset to default settings.Even though your fan is running, it may have less hrs. on it then your bulb had. If neither of these work for you, I would have to say that it is probably the logic board on the projector.Good Luck!

SOURCE: Both Temp and Lamp lights blink red

All you should need to do is go to the menu on the projector, and find the Filter Timer. Hit the right arrow to select the filter time, and then hold the rest button on the projector until you are prompted to confirm the reset. Hit menu to confirm and it should now reset the filter timer. Now cut the projector off and back on and the lights should stop blinking. I hope this helps.

Status light is blinking red, power button orange nec vt700


Hello
Look at the number of blinks of the status light.
[1] If it blinks at one cycle (0.5seconds On and 2.5seconds OFF) : Lamp cover error or lamp housing error. Replace the lamp cover or lamp housing correctly.
[2] If it blinks 2 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Temperature error. The projector is overheated. Move the projector to a cooler position.
[3] if it blinks at 4 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Fan error. Fans sill not work correctly.
[4] If it bliks at 6 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Lamp fails to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on again.
[5] If it blinks continous (Red): Lamp has reached the end of its life. Lamp replacement messege will be displayed. Replace Lamp with same type and number. After replacement reset lamp hour. OK.

Replace the 2 bulbs. Unit powered up correctly and turned on like normal. Then Lamp1 and Lamp 2 indicator lights blinked (Indicating Start UP). After some period of time, it switched to Red 6 times blink...


1 red blink every 2.5 seconds indicates a cover error-- for this check the lamp cover
2 times red blinks very 2 seconds indicates temperature error. for this let the projector cool off check filters and fans that there is no blockage of air for proper cool down
3 red blinks every every 2 seconds Power error. incorrect voltage input or internal malfunction.
4 red blinks every 2 seconds indicates Fan Error check the fans make sure they are working and not blocked or need replacing.
i have nothing on 6 ligths go ahead reconect and check for proper count. hope this information helps.
Best of Luck.

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

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! :]
