Question about Mitsubishi SL2U Multimedia Projector
I'm about to buy a second hand Mitsubishi SL2U projector and would like to know how much time is left for the bulb before I buy. Is there any way of checking? I've had a look at the manual and it doesn't offer anything.
Bulbs do not really have a certain lamp life they only have a lamp timer. You will want to be sure you can get a replacement lamp they can go anytime between 0 and 6000 hours.

First check your lamp to make sure it is seated properly in the socket.
Then check all of your interlocks (see your manual for locations), these are usually located on any hatches or doors that allow access to the lamp and or fan area. Once you check your interlocks make sure the filter and fan area is clear of dust, (some projectors have air flow sensors), and the recheck the interlocks. Once this is done , If the interlocks are not broken, or the lamp fuse blown, the projector should be working. If not it is the lamp that needs changing.
I know this may be expensive, however these lamps do go bad, as much as we wish they would not.
If you still feel it is not the lamp, have a technician check the voltage levels to the lamp and the levels of the control board circuitry.
I hope this helps,

power supply problem. the capacitors are probably drying out. it takes a boost of power to strike the lamp, and if the power supply can't handle it, it shuts down. replace the power supply.

I suspect the lamp cooling fan. Check the fan for debris or damage. If it were the sensor, it would be showing fault mode and not even start up. Hope that helps.
