Question about Mitsubishi XL5U ColorView Multimedia Projector
I have changed the bulb in a XL5U and the power led is blinking red green. The status led is constant green. Manual says that I shoukld contact my dealer. Just wondered if there was a way of reseting it inside perhaps. The power supply fan does come on for a moment.

First check your lamp to make sure it is seated properly in the socket.
Then check all of your interlocks (see your manual for locations), these are usually located on any hatches or doors that allow access to the lamp and or fan area. Once you check your interlocks make sure the filter and fan area is clear of dust, (some projectors have air flow sensors), and the recheck the interlocks. Once this is done , If the interlocks are not broken, or the lamp fuse blown, the projector should be working. If not it is the lamp that needs changing.
I know this may be expensive, however these lamps do go bad, as much as we wish they would not.
If you still feel it is not the lamp, have a technician check the voltage levels to the lamp and the levels of the control board circuitry.
I hope this helps,

Both power light and status light a solid red with no response to any buttons indicates the bulb timer has expired. You need to reset the timer by pressing and holding the left arrow key, the right arrow key and the power button all at the same time for a few seconds.
If there are no problems, the projector will fire up, but you must replace the bulb as it will fail soon and perhaps explode when it does.

This means that an abnormal condition is present in the machine.
if it were just the red and green blinking on the power, then that is the lamp cover not on fully.
anyway check the lamp cover is fuuly in, and check the filter cover and filter
