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

Sony KP-51WS510 51 in. Rear Projection Keeps blinking 5 times. The red and green projectors are working fine, but the blue is not working. Sears service replaced the power supply, and the first board, then...

You may want to recheck your connections coming off the blue tube to the board. Also check the IC links/Pico fuses on the power board. I have a repair manual for this Tv if you need it.

BenQ 8700 Won't Power On

As far as the projector goes, the ac power supply is fused with probably no more than a 7 amp fuse, that would blow before your breaker would if the problem were in the projector. The only thing that could case the breaker to trip would be a defective AC outlet socket or your cord for the projector is bad. I have seen cases where cat's have chewed though the cord and shorted it out and triped a breaker, outside of that if the projector is bad now then your thought of sending to the manufacturer is the best one.

Pictures goes black while power light blinks green

I have a 40 but i was having the same problem. It turned out to be my lamp. I got a brand new lamp from Projector Lamp Services ( and my tv works fine now. Im pretty sure that the 40 and the 60 take the same lamp. You might want to give them a call.

Popping; sparking of Red Projector to metal frame

Sounds like the red CRT has an internal short. Sometimes happens that the picture tubes develop an internal short and cause arcing. I world CAREFULLY disconnect all of the wires to the CRT and see if the arcing goes away. VERY IMPORTANT!!! there is a high voltage wire attached to each pictur tube, usually a red wire that goes to the side of the tube. You can get a shock even if the TV is unplugged, as the tube will hold a charge for years after the power is disconnected. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, DON"T since the shock is powerful enough to stop your heart.

Projector problem

If replacing the lamp did not fix the problem, I would suggest to check the cables that bring the video from a computer or any other device that you are connecting to the projector.
Also try to hook up a DVD player using the video output from the DVD to the video input on your projector.
Good Luck.

51 magnavox projection tv-color mixing wrong

The are controls on the inside of the tv above the circuit boards for focus and to turn up intensity of the projector lamps (red, green, and blu). If you turn it up too far all three projector lamps kick off. If this happens, power off the set and turn down the lamp that you turned up. Power it back on and slowly turn the projector lamp up until the picture looks OK. You have to take off the panel on back of set to get to the controls.
