Question about Mitsubishi HC1500 DLP Projector

1 Answer

Hc1500 projector will not turn on

My HC1500 has started taken up to 10 tries before turning on for about a month now. Today I stupidly blew some compressed air in the vents right after it turned on to see if dust was causing the buzz saw sound that started after the lamp was replaced last year, but there was a PoP and a flame that blew out the side (lft side when mounted on ceiling) and a burnt smell after. Know I get a single solid red light, but will not turn on. Tried a lamp reset, but still nothing. I do not know if I blew the lamp or if something else happened. The lamp is not broken, but does have black dust inside by the screen on the side. I do not want to buy a new bulb if something else is broken. how do I check if it is the bulb??

Sounds like the lamp. The only way to really check it is to either put a new bulb in or put the old bulb in a different projector. Neither of which probably help you at this point. But, it does sound like the lamp is blown.

SOURCE: Hi, My hc1500 Is having a problem. When I turn it

The clicking sound is the high voltage power supply trying to
ignite the gas in the lamp. The lamp is not firing and coming on.
Check the bulb/ lamp life. Possible the lamp has exceeded its
useful life and may need to be replaced.

This sounds like an overheat issue and requires return under warrantee.

My projector won't turn on, only the power light shows red, the status light is blank. Tried the remote and manually turning it on.


Hello
If the power light is ON and status light is OFF; check if any objects are blocking the air inlet or outlet grill, and remove them if any, and carry out the following.
[1] Unplug the power cord from wall outlet.
[2] Make sure that the projector has cooled off.
[3] Plug the power cord into the wall socket.
[4] Press the power button.
Check whether the cooling fan has stopped. The problem is with overheating itself.
If these does not help you, your projector need service. OK.

It turns on but there is no light. Has the lamp burned? The lamp has not been used for over 2,000 hours...


If it has done over 1000 hours it has done well.
If the projector is ceiling mounted, the air is very hot up there and the lamp life will be greatly reduced. Is the lamp life indicator flashing?
Hope that helps.

Mitsubishi hc1500 banding


If you're using the VGA port, you'll see the banding because it's not really showing 720p, it's doing scaling (I'm not sure from what resolutions it's scaling). So, even though you're using VGA at 1280x720, the scaling is still going on and it's showing the banding.

You have to use HDMI to get true 720p.
