Hi tkaetzel

Have you had a look at the settings in the menu if it has a sleep timer?

    If the LAMP light and the Power light are
    blinking orange, the lamp driver has failed and
    the projector will automatically shut down.
    Unplug the power cord after 3 minutes then
    turn the display on again. If this problem
    persists, contact Dell.

    Hope this helps... and it is the solution, i think you need a new lamp driver

Dell 1209S Projector, tries to turn on, and the fan comes on for 30 seconds and then goes off again. It tries this several times and then the light bulb icon comes off and it doesn't do antything else


Lamp is burned out or makes a popping sound.
When the lamp reaches its end of life, it may burn out and may make a loud popping sound.
If this occurs, the projector does not turn back on. To replace the lamp, see on page 38.
LAMP light is solid amber If the LAMP light is solid amber, replace the lamp.
LAMP light is blinking amber If the LAMP light and the Power light are blinking amber, the lamp driver has failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
If the LAMP light is blinking amber and Power light is solid blue, the color wheel has
failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
Unplug the power cord after 3minutes then turn the display on again. If this problem
persists, contact Dell™.

Dell 1800mp projectors turns on for a few seconds then turns off and lamp light stays solid orange...what's the problem. New bulb?


Hello
If the Lamp light and power lights are blinking orange, the lamp driver has failed, and the projector will automatically shut down. Unplug the power cord from AC mains wall socket, wait for three minutes and replug and see whether it helos you. If not, contact Dell service center.
OK.

Your lamp has failed
Make sure you have the manual..If not , go to Dell website and download one
Then check the web for YOUR lamp model before going to Dell for it
Many places are a rip-off when it comes to lamps

We have two Dell 2400mp DLP projectors that will shut down randomly. The time that the projector is never the same.


I just got done talking with Dell, they told me to unplug everything from the projector, power source and all. Then Press and hold the power button down for 45 seconds. This will disapate the electricity from the capacitors. Plug everything back in, and test. Seem to wook for me!! Good Luck

Projector screen displaying "Searching" message. Does not recognize computer. Worked with one of your associates (Guru?) and we tried a number of solutions but none worked. She asked that I come back to...


If you are connecting to a laptop then you may need to hold the function button down and press F1, F2, F3 etc. there should be a sign with the latop on there and a sign with an external device (monitor,PROJECOR)
hope this information was useful to you.

Right , if the indicator light goes from Green to Orange when shutting down , it will be the Powersupply that is giving problems and not the Ballast.

Projector shuts down after only a few minutes.


I'm having the same problem. My Model is PB8253. Projector started, then afer a couple minutes it goes off with the red lamp led flashing.
Just replaced the lamp, but the problem persists. Tried to remove all connecting cables, except for the power, but still the same problem.
Anyone with similar problem or solution, please contact me at dartveiga@gmail.com
