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.

SOURCE: Lamp will not turn on.

If the ventilation fan is not spinning you will really have this problem, because if the fan is not working overheating problem will arise and will lead to this problen, so you will need first to replace the ventilation fan and that should fix this problem....

Hope that helps........

Double check which menu item you are expecting to find the orientation. It might even be under 'image', 'settings', or its own button not in the menu, Jon.

SOURCE: viewsonic pj551 projector lamp will not light

Without more info, I'll tell you some things to check...Make sure the power cord is still plugged in firmly. With the unit unplugged, check the lamp for damage, looseness, etc. Was the unit hot when you moved it? If it was, the lamp was more prone to damage due to the heat. Always be VERY gentle if you have to move a hot projector for any reason. Did the unit sustain any hard impact while moving? Impacts crack boards, loosen connectors, and damage lamps. Make sure the lamp door is closed completely--there is a switch on the door to prevent the projector from coming on if the door is open. Make sure you didn't press any buttons on the unit too hard while holding it during moving.

SOURCE: 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.

This always happens on hitachi projectors aswell,It is just meaning that you need to clean the air vent and reset the timer and then it should be alright.

Yellow Image


Hi there

You could if you can get your hands on the LCD's.

BUT if you have never done this before , don't try it at all. It is not as simple as all the other parts in the unit to replace !
