Question about ViewSonic PJ558D DLP Projector

Viewsonic PJ558D shuts off after a few seconds

Hello, I have a Viewsonic PJ558D projector that the color wheel shattered. I replaced the color wheel, but now the projector turns on for a few seconds, the lamp does not go on, and then it shuts off. I have taken it apart many times and I checked that all connections were secure. I still cannot get it to go on. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the ballast board for the lamp stopped working.

Our ViewSonic PJ558 is emitting yellow light. The whole display is in yellow already. Please help.

If the yellow is perfectly uniform across the whole screen, then a processor problem may be present.
If the lamp is very old then this could be a problem.
Otherwise an optical part has deteriated due to overheating

Projector does not detect computer. Tried two computer and nothing. They both work great with the same video cable to the LCD.

Since it is working on a separate LCD monitor, the problem is with the input settings on the projector. Make sure you have the correct RGB/VGA input selected on the projector. Also make sure you are not sending a resolution that is higher than what the projector can handle.

Are LED conversions coming for the older Projectors? I have a Viewsonic pj5558D. I need a new bulb, but would love to see if an LED version exists...

Not for a while yet. You'll need to use the "standard" lamp. Do not forget to reset the lamp timer when you change the lamp.

Shattered color wheel

The color wheels for these projectors can run anywhere from $50-$150 plus installation. With projectors now in the 3-400 range it may actually cost less to replace instead of repair.
