I had same problem. The cause was a blown fuse (T5.0 Amp 250V). You have to open the case and then get below the print that is under the alloy cover. it is quite simple to fix. A fuse costs 60 cents.

Where exactly is the fuse located for Sony VPL DS 100?

Take out the screws on the bottom. Flip it over and take off the top plate. Pull (from the connectors) the wires going over what looks like a steel plate with several small holes. Take out the screws (6 total) holding that plate and the circuit board on. Pull off the steel plate and the plastic under it. Lift up on the circuit board under that: there are to connectors on the underside that have to be removed. Once you get it out, the fuse is near the end, about 3/4" long and ceramic white.
