Not powering up: Sony VPL sc24

I cannot get the projector to power up.

The projector has been working fine. We did not use it for a week and wanted to move it. So we unplugged the lead from the projector, whilst it was plugged in to a socket (but not turned on). There was some 'sparking' (from the plug to the projector socket) when we pulled the plug lead out and put in back in. Could this have caused the problem?

Its like it has gone into 'protect' standby mode as a result of a power surge, but I am guessing!! Any ideas welcome

Hi there

Replacing the lamp won't make any difference at all.

If you have checked the fuse on the Powersupply Board and it tested ok , then the whole Board will need replacement.
