Red power, blinking red temp


if the Lamp error and Temperature error lights are flashing red this means that there are two separate errors.

  • A flashing lamp light means the lamp failed to ignite. It could be a lamp driver problem or lamp failure. Replace the lamp to resolve the issue. If the issue is not resolved, then service the projector.
  • A flashing Temperature light signals a fan error. Turn the projector off and allow it to cool down. If the light is still flashing after the projector is turned back on, service the projector.

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.

I have a NEC VT470 Projector. The power light is steady orange and the status light blinks red 6 times.

steady orange means projector in standby mode
red light 6 times is a lamp error.
either the lamp is old and wont start up or the ballast power pcb is not working.
can you hear the sparking of the high voltage trying to strike the lamp.
if you can then the lamp may be dodgy.
can you borrow one to test it out

Hi I am having trouble with an LT180 DLP I'm getting a series of error messages culminating in the power light steady orange and the status light flashing a series of 6 flashes red. Inside I found that...

both lights flashing green indicate the projector lost power while it was running (didn't get to go through shutdown procedure). if the status light blinks 6 times, the lamp is failing to strike (one time means the cover is open, 2 times is a temperature issue, and 4 times is the fan). if it comes on and shuts off a short time later (less than 15 seconds), the ballast is going bad and needs replacing. if it didn't come on at all, it'd be either the ballast or the colorwheel. if the lamp light was red, it would be the lamp that needs replacing. nec won't sell parts to anyone who is not an authorized nec service center, so you'd need to contact one to get the part (although they may not sell it to you). but good luck!
