When you turn it on, do you hear the Fan whirring at all?

This could be due to a burnt out component near the power supply, if that goes, well, the whole thing goes.

Check for anything that smells or looks burnt.

Please let us know of any questions or more information so we can help you better.

Projector wont switch on.

if there are no leds lit on the top, then the power supply is bad (check the fuse on it first). if there are leds lit, which ones, what color, and are they flashing, and how many times? this will tell you the problem.

Hi there

Does this only happen once a signal is inserted ?

Does it happen on both PC & Video signals ?

Have you tried using a different cable yet ?

Sony vpl cx5 no voltage to lamp

I downloaded the schematics and drawings for $US9.00 and found what I thought may have been a thermistor turned out to be a fuse. Obtained one from Sony spares and it is now OK. If it is possible would you guys know the value of the fuse [amp/milliamps??] If you are familar it is fuse 2P connected to C board, it looks like a small lump of plastic or diode block. The cost of the fuse is outragous from Sony. I hope I do not have to replace it again. However, if I do I would love the valua and I could see if I could get one from Radio shack or someplace similar. If I was not retired I would buy one and put it on a step tranny and watch the ampmeter for the blow current. But, thats life when you decide to retire. I believe the voltage value is 3volts??

Would appreciate any feed-back on the value of the fuse.

And I hope this may help others

Thanks and Good-day

Projector turns off after 30 seconds.

I had the same problem I replaced the motor/lense cover unit at the cost of $AU140.00 and that fixed it.
