Hi there! i have this nec mt1030g+ projector and its video hv sumthing like a copy of image with is like shadow of the real image in blue colour! i wanna know if its lamp fault or sumthng elsa! thanks

It sounds like a polarising lens has failed, if so it will probably be cheaper to buy a new NEC NP115 which has probably got the same if not better specification.

Hopefully I was of help to you

Need to replace NEC Lamp Unit in VT75LPE. Unit is bolted to ceiling in library and unable to be detached easily. What is procedure for replacing lamp?

Hi. You are most likely going to have to remove the projector *and* the projector mounting plate in order to access the lamp door. Mark the orientation of the projector mount plate with a marker and set aside. Remove the lamp door with a proper screwdriver. The PROJECTOR MUST BE COOL TO PROCEED!! The lamp will be secured, usually with 2 screws. Loosen these screws--new screws should come with the new lamp--already held in position. Using the hinged metal handle, pull the old lamp straight up and out of the projector. ( you might have to wiggle it and work it out steadily--its a precision fit) Take your time and *don't force* it! Carefully slide the new lamp into position, taking care that the power connector on the lamp assembly is properly seated. MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU DO NOT TOUCH ANY LAMP GLASS WITH YOUR FINGERS!!! If you do get finger prints on any glass surfaces, carefully wipe them off completely with a dry, soft cloth--DO NOT USE CLEANER!! This is critical to the life of the new lamp--finger oil attracts heat and will cause the new lamp to fail pre-maturely. Re-attach the lamp door--make sure you don't over-tighten any screws on lamp or door--they need to be firmly tight but not "gorilla" tight! lol Clean any dust filters thoroughly before re-attaching the mounting plate--you'll be glad you did! After re-mounting the projector, power it up and go into the menu in order to reset the lamp timer.--Hope I helped you!---Rick

Just replaced vt700 lamp. projector still indicating faulty lamp. i also reset the lamp hrs by pressing help on remote. can any one help thanks

Try the old lamp again and reset again and see if that works. When you originally replaced the lamp did it give you a warning that replacement was required or did it just stop? I haven't worked on that model before but you may require a new Ballast (power supply ) that runs the lamp (technician job usually)

I have a NEC mt1055 and the unit just had new bulb put in here and it has the power and standby light come on and the fan doesn't turn on here and the standby light is yellow and status is red

The NEC’s work on a reducing time basis, they count the hours that they have been operational and refer to this as the life of the bulb – 1600 hours. When the 1600 hours has been reached the projector shuts itself down into standby mode never to be restarted even after changing the bulb / filters. This is because the unit needs to be reset, which needs to be done as follows (not included in any of the bulb replacement instructions):-
  • Plug Projector in so it is in standby mode – Orange light lit, Red status light lit (not flashing)
  • Using the remote control, hold down the power off button for 30-45 seconds
  • This will reset the status button, removing the red light
  • Power up the projector and select Menu
  • Select Projector Options
  • Select Set-up – a number of tabs will appear called pages
  • Arrow across the pages (MT850 is Page 5) until an option called “RESET LAMP HOURS” is shown
  • Move onto this option and press enter on the projector itself, confirm that you want to reset the counter
  • Projector is now back to life

This works for all NEC projectors, the page number may be different though where the “RESET LAMP HOURS” option resides.

NEC MT1050 Lamp Error

Does the status light stay on red? If it does then the lamp timer has exspired and will not let the projector turn back on until it is reset, at which time you should replace the lamp. To reset the timer you need the remote control, with the unit plugged in in standby mode hold down the power off button for 30 to 45 seconds until the status light goes off.
