Question about Sony VPL HS10 Multimedia Projector

Sony HS10 error lights

I have a Sony HS10 projector. When I turn the projector on the lamp turns on with the warmup white screen with green LED on the projector on.
After about 5-10 seconds the Lamp tuns off, the status LED flaches green and the 'Lamp/Cover' led also turns on solid orange. The projector then powers down immediately.
Is this something I can fix or do I need to take the projector in for a service?

You could try a new lamp, some lamps fire, but do not stay on

It appears your bulb has reached its end, replace the bulb.

I had the same problem I replaced the motor/lense cover unit at the cost of $AU140.00 and that fixed it.

Lamp LED should be lit when the projector is in Standby. However, the problem you are describing sounds like one of two issues. Either the lamp is bad and needs replaced, or there is a power supply fault. If you have tried replacing the lamp already, make sure you reset the lamp counter or the projector may still not function properly.

does the temp warning light come on when the projector shuts off? if so you may also try cleaning the air vent filters and ensure there is proper air flow around the projector. if that checks out then have the projector serviced as the power supply is likely suspect.

Optoma Projector power LED is blinking green,funs are not working, lamp not function, how can i solve this problem

i'd say power supply issue, but the led is blinking green. this means that it thinks it's in warmup/standby mode. but if nothing's running, the main board might be bad and needs to be replaced.

I replaces my bulb in the sony vpl-hs10 and it still will not turn on after I reset it what do I do now? the lamp light is still lite it turns on but the lamp does not project anything

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS3.
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter

This is required, to reset the lamp timer.

Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

When I power up the projector the center of the image is GreenThe projector has a new lamp. Is it the power supply?

This problem is more likely to be the Green LCD gone. The green LCD's job is to filter out the green on the picture where it isn't necessary so If the green LCD starts to fail, it will let through too much green light. I think its more in the middle because of the heat from the bulb over time.

What does it mean when that blinking green light turns to orange one in lp 350?

This would be "Standby"
When you press standby, the display and audio turn off and a blank screen is displayed for 15 minutes.
You can change the amount of time the projector stays in standby mode; see “Standby Time” on page 27 for details.
The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.
• If you press standby again within 15 minutes, the projector returns to normal operations immediately. The LED changes from orange to green.
• If you press standby again after 15 minutes, there is about a 60 second delay before the lamp turns back on. The LED flashes green while the lamp is re-lighting.
• If you don’t press standby again, the lamp turns off after 15 minutes. The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.
The full manual can be found here:

I hope these help
