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™.

Hello, good day. My problem is relationship my sony xga vpl - ex7 not turn on. Only lighting the lamp/cover.

Either lamp is dead/ broken in projector or lamp cover is not fixed properly (its located at bottom side)
Please check lamp and replace it if its broken and make sure lamp cover is fixed back on its location securely after lamp replacement/ checking.

Sony VPL-DS100

I have solved this problem. Seems the rotating stand on the front bottom needed to be pushed and turned so that it inserts well inside. If it not well pushed the projector keeps shutting down itself every 10-15seconds. Took me about an hour to open the projector and doing all kinds of experiments to finally try that. :)

Lamp/Cover Error

I had the same problem with a "Sony VPL-ES3" projector. The lamp cover light would flash and the projector wouldn't turn on.
I think its a problem with a filter cover. This fixed the problem for me: 
  1. Plug out the projector
  2. Click off the filter at the bottom of the projector.
  3. Plug the projector back in. (the lamp cover light should flash)
  4. Plug the projector out again.
  5. Put the filter cover back on.
  6. Plug the projector in again and it should work fine.
This has worked for me every time I have had this problem.
