SOURCE: the lamp indicator turns on

The clicking noise is the protection switch that keep shutting down the unit. This happens when an internal fault had been detected.

Do the following:

Unplug the unit from power for some time.
Remove the bulp and refit it in place.
Restart the unit.

If still in protect mode (clicking , lamp light and no start), then there is a fault.
When the problem is the lamp, the lamp light will come on, but usually protection does not click.
Before buying a new lamp that is expensive, have the projector checked, testing with particular attention the high voltage board that will supply power to the lamp. That may be the fault.
If you have a replacement lamp in storage replace the lamp first.

I plugged in my xd490u [mitsubishi] data projector...and then power turned red, status turned green for few some seconds. later power blinked [red + green] and did not work. can anyone tell me what the...


It sounds like your lamp may need replacing. Before you go that route try all of these:
-Make sure the lamp cover on the bottom is fully attached. -If you unplug the power cord while the fan is rotating, the lamp may not turn on about 1 minute when you plug the power cord next time. After the status indicator stops blinking press the power button to turn it back on. May have to press it multiple times. -If your Power Light continues to blink red/green then you should contact your dealer.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

When power button is turned on it has a orange light and the lamp button is red. It is not the bulb because it worked in another projector of the same kind.


The bulb is not lighting.
Make sure the covers are going on correctly if I remember this one has an inner cover as well.
There is a little micro switch that needs to be operated by cover going on correctly.
also check the plugs / connectors are ok.

How do you change the bulb?


Hello :

1:Make sure that your power switch is off and that the power cord is unplugged from the electrical socket.
It is also wise to unplug any other cables and label them in order to restore them in the right way once the lamp is replaced.


2:In order to see the lamp, remove the access handle on the outside cover. You may need to use a screwdriver.

3:Pull out the used lamp and clean the relevant parts using micro fiber products and not paper.
Please note that in some projectors a small inside filter should also be replaced.


4:Insert the new lamp into the projector carefully avoiding touching the glass of the lamp itself.
Touching the lamp will deposit skin oil that will likely damage any new lamp during use.





5:Reassemble the access panel, replug the cables and power up the projector.

Things You'll Need:
new projector lamp
screwdriver
micro fiber duster


Warning:
avoid touching the bare projector lamp

..................................................................


Here are the steps that explained in the manual :

Lamp Replacement Procedure:
1. Switch off the power to the projector by pressing the Power/Standby button.
2. Allow the projector to cool down for at least 30 minutes.
3. Disconnect the power cord.
4. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws from the cover.
5. Push up and remove the cover.
6. Remove the 2 screws from the lamp module.
7. Pull out the lamp module.

I just replaced my bulb on the toshiba tdp t45u projector and the red lamp light is still on and the projector still wont come on? how do i fix?


Check out the Power supply to the lamp . It must not be high . . Check if the voltages are correct to the lamp's unit and it's PCB [printed circuit board]. I recommend using a service manual .

I have a screenplay 5700 which stop displaying a picture. I replaced the bulb but the projector keeps starting up and then makes a clicking sound but never displays anything


Does the clicking sound happen right when you plug in the power cable? If yes then you have an issue with the power supply. I repair these power supplies. If your interested you can check out my reviews here, or on Ebay. My ID is gtitubro

Optoma EP719 Projector Won't Power Back On


When you first replaced the bulb it went back on and then later it did not. Most projectors have a safety switch that it is activated upon the bulbs cover placed. Once the cover is removed it activates the switch and shuts down power to bulb. It sounds based on your remarks, that this switch may have intermitten problems. I would suggest, locate this switch and verify its operation. Or, make sure the bulb cover is placed and/or secured properly.
