I had the same problem with a "Sony VPL-ES3" projector. The lamp cover light would flash and the projector wouldn't turn on.
I think its a problem with a filter cover. This fixed the problem for me: 

  1. Plug out the projector
  2. Click off the filter at the bottom of the projector.
  3. Plug the projector back in. (the lamp cover light should flash)
  4. Plug the projector out again.
  5. Put the filter cover back on.
  6. Plug the projector in again and it should work fine.
This has worked for me every time I have had this problem.

I encountered the same problem and solved it following ranjum's solution: Tighten the screws inside the lamp cover at the project bottom.

Thanks podge for your solution. I had tried it before as suggested in VPL-ES3 reference book (trouble shooting section) but it has not worked for me. Instead I have foud that there is a lamp cover at the bottom of the projector for replacing fused lamp. This cover is tied to the bottom via a single screw. Just make sure that this screw is not loose. In my case, when I tightened it the indication has vanished.

My 202 doorbell does not "react" if the button is pushed AFTER my neighbor unlocks his car by using his remote key. Can I change the frequency range of the doorbell?


look for a cover that has small switches under it. You can change frequencies there. You must match the door button the same way .

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.
