I have the same problem. I thought it was my bulb as well. I changed it out today and same problem persisted. I called Sony today and they told me about a class action case on this issue, but it ended in 08. I was told to contact an auth. dealer and call back with the breakdown of the problem. They said then I will be presented with some options? doesn't really sound good to me.

It sounds like it is not getting enough cooling. Clean the cooling paths. I am just taking a guess as I am not familiar with this unit.

Hc1500 projector will not turn on


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.

I've just replaced the lamp on my Panasonic PT-LM2E projector and it will switch on but no light comes out. The previous lamp blew in the projector after around 2000 hrs. The indicators are as...


I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.

Purple blotches


Ok, so I'm about to flip a lid with my TV. I am showing purple quater sized blotches all over my screen. I bought it for a discounted price because of this issue, in hopes i could fix it. I took the back panel off the TV. ( about a 6in * 6 in plate) removed the light bulb and cleaned the bulb and lens, where the light bulb faced. I used a dust cleaner and special cloth. NOTHING! I took the entire front screen off cleaned it and then cleaned the mirror and second lens.... NOTHING! Then i heard that dusk sometimes gathers behind the lens and that should be cleaned. Try this, Its 4 screws, just be careful and remember the way you took it out, because it has to be replaced the same way.

How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?


Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
