Viewsonic pj 800 projector

The power light (red) comes on but the projector does not power up. Could this be the lamp? Does a bad lamp prevent the projector from powering up?

    No display from the unit, fan came on at power up, power lamp flashes at first then stays on, Temp/Lamp light flashed blue for a while then briefly changed to red, then went out. No display from the projector.

    The lamp indicator on my projector is off and the unit is not powering on. The power indicator is on and is amber in color.

I got a viewsonic pjd5111 projector used . it power on for aleaast 30 sec and shut down immediately temp light red and lamp light green . i hv tried everything .help

Check if there is a cooling fan. Is it rotating?
It is also possible that the filter is dusty and needs to be cleaned/replaced.
(all projectors have a cooling fan and a filter to prevent dust from reaching the lamp. A faulty fan or a reduced air flow may cause an overheat problem)

I turn on my Viewsonic PJD6251 but the lamp does not come on, and after a few seconds I get 2 red lights TEMP and LAMP. It is new, only 2 weeks I barely used. Good care.

sounds like a bad bulb

projectors get a resistance reading from the bulb and if it doesnt get right value it will give you the double red lights

only other thing it could be is if the fans in projector are not turning on

call viewsonic and tell them issue and make them resolve issue


if unit is only 2 weeks old bring it back to store and get replacement or call viewsonic and get them to send you replacement unit - it is too new to mess with it yourself and take chance on voiding warranty

My Viewsonic PJ 500 projecter light is not turning on. "lamp" light is blinking.

That means that the bulb is bad and beeds to be replace, This usually happens after 1000 hours of use.

Hi George86969

Try checking if all the fans are working when you swich on the unit. Normally a static red temp. light is a faulty fan that will have to be replaced.
