Question about Sony VPL-ES3 Multimedia Projector
My VPL ES3 proj . power supply fuse is blown mosphet short and SCR 056 open.
Replaced all these components and when I tested it again the same parts failed. I gave it for repair but the guy says one pcb mount IC is short and there is only code on the IC he needs the complete IC number.
Can you help me out .

SOURCE: sony vpl cx5 no voltage to lamp
I downloaded the schematics and drawings for $US9.00 and found what I thought may have been a thermistor turned out to be a fuse. Obtained one from Sony spares and it is now OK. If it is possible would you guys know the value of the fuse [amp/milliamps??] If you are familar it is fuse 2P connected to C board, it looks like a small lump of plastic or diode block. The cost of the fuse is outragous from Sony. I hope I do not have to replace it again. However, if I do I would love the valua and I could see if I could get one from Radio shack or someplace similar. If I was not retired I would buy one and put it on a step tranny and watch the ampmeter for the blow current. But, thats life when you decide to retire. I believe the voltage value is 3volts??
Would appreciate any feed-back on the value of the fuse.
And I hope this may help others
Thanks and Good-day

does the "lamp/cover"-led light up? i had the same thing happening, the lamp either broke or is about to break and the projektor won't turn it on again to protect itself. if its very urgent, open the projector pull the lamp out and put it in again, it might work for 1 or 2 more times, but it is very likely to explode (usually not breaking the projector but for sure not good for it).
