Question about Dell 1800MP Projector

Open Question

Dell 1800mp projector doesn't power on (blue panel lights blink)

A friend and myself tore the projector apart and noticed a buldging capacitor (10v 3300uf), and what looked like electrolytic fluid on the power supply (a Liteon). I'm trying to find a new power supply now, so far, no dice.

Dell 1800mp projectors turns on for a few seconds then turns off and lamp light stays solid orange...what's the problem. New bulb?


Hello
If the Lamp light and power lights are blinking orange, the lamp driver has failed, and the projector will automatically shut down. Unplug the power cord from AC mains wall socket, wait for three minutes and replug and see whether it helos you. If not, contact Dell service center.
OK.

Where can I purchase a power supply for my Dell 1800MP projector? When I plug it in, I get no light on the power button (not blue or amber), so I assume it's the power supply.

Lamp and power flashing amber


The problem is the lamp driver, it can be repalced by dell for $250 plus parts. The specific problem is a capacitor on the driver board, if you know someone who can work on electronics have them replace the 3300u 10v capacitor on the lamp driver board. Usually the capacitor will be slightly bulged on the top (not flat) indicating it needs replacing. Otherwise look for a electronics repair shop in your area and set them in the right direction. Hope that helps.
