Question about NEC VT470 Multimedia Projector
This unit has worked fine for several years. Now when I turn it on, at first the green power light goes on, after a few minutes there is a beeping sound and the status light blinks red. The lamp does not go on. Could this been as simple as needing a new bulb?
I have 3 of these and all failed within weeks of each other with the same problem. The status light blinks 6 times telling me the lamp failed to ignite.
I fixed all 3 by opening them and shuffling motherboards around. I didnt order any new parts, call tech support or anything fancy. Just swapped boards.
Maybe they will keep working, maybe they wont. It might be worth a shot if you've run out of warranty though. It's not going to get any busted-er.

According to the manual, yes . . .probably gone past the recommended hours of lamp use. Press the OFF or the HELP button on the remote for 10 sec, this will reset the lamp hours value and allow the unit to come on. If it don't, NEC will tell you that it has to be sent to a repair center.
