Question about Acer PD100 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Bulb replacement I have an Acer projector which I recently had to change the bulb in. The problem is that I am still getting the message that the bulb needs to be replaced. Do I need to reset something? And how do I do this? I have checked the manual that came with the projector and it does not explain this. All it says is that the projector senses when the bulb needs to be replaced. The old bulb was replaced by a new bulb.

My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)

The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

New bulb in a hp vp6220 projector

We have a number of these at the school I provide support at and just recently I've had to replace the lamps in six of these.

I've found the method HP details a bit hit and miss, i.e. you might have to try doing a few times before you get the message. First power off the projector and then remove all inputs to it, it won't work if you have anything still plugged in other than the power. Re-apply the power and then press and hold the up button. You should now get a message on the screen 'reset lamp hours for new lamp - press [auto sync] to reset', press the auto sync button as soon as you see this message as it soon goes off.

You can then check via the menu to make sure the lamp hours has been reset to zero.

Proector image is dim

I have changed the bulb on my LG projector recently. I found the rotating colour wheel to be full of dust. Upon opening the cavity where the light is redirected and reflected onto the imager, I saw all mirrors also had a layer of dust. I don't think it was so dirty that it affected the brightness of the image, but I cleaned it anyway using an earbud. I cleaned both sides of the color wheel as well. You need to be careful in working with the optics of the projector!
