Dell 1800mp will not turn on

I have a Dell 1800mp that will not turn on. When I hit the power button it lights up like it is coming on then turns back off. About 1 time out of 20-30 it will come on and work fine and stay on until I turn it off.

    This is a known problem with the Dell 1800MP projectors caused by a failed capacitor in the power supply. You can fix it yourself if you know how to use a soldering iron and have some experience with electronics. There are other FixYa posts that show or point you to the repair. If not, I will repair these projectors for you at a cost of $40 plus actual shipping from me to you. You would pay the shipping cost to me. Considering the effort it takes to repair one of these units, this is a fair price. Dell charges $250 for the repair plus parts. I have repaired numerous of these units with 100% success.

    I found this website looking for a solution to the same problem with my Dell 1800MP. The projector would not power on at all, not even blinking lights. I emailed mooredesigns and asked if he could help me. He responded quickly and repaired my projector at the cost quoted above. I have my projector back and it works just like it's supposed to. Very responsive and courteous.

    Just a note to anyone out there with Dell 1800MP projectors. I sent three of these to David for power issues. They were all repaired and returned as promised. All are back in service with 100% satisfaction on my part. I have many more of these in service and will send them straight to David if I have issues. Great service, timely and easy to work with. Thanks David. Don McCarter 7/24/2014

Dell 1800mp projector will not power up and an orange lamp light flashes. It is not the lamp. What is the problem?


have you checked fans??

make sure they are running and filters are clean and not blocked

also did you try to unplug projector for at least 5 minutes and try repowering to check

also make sure you are properly connected to a source that is hooked up and working - sometimes if you have no video to an input projector will not turn on

hope this helps

good luck!!

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.

Turns on and both the lamp and temp button light up but no bulb will turn on. Internet soruces say a bad capacitor.


Hello
Check the bulb first. If it is found OK, the inverter card has the fault. You have to contact Dell Authorised Service center to get this card. OK

Where can I purchase a power supply for my Dell 1800MP projector? When I plug it in, I get no light on the power button (not blue or amber), so I assume it's the power supply.
