Whe the lamp exceeds 2100 hours (up to 3100 hours in ECO mode) of service, the projector cannot turn onand the menu is not displayed. If this happens, press the HELP button on the remote for 10 seconds to reset the lamp clock back to zero. When the lamp clock is reset to zero, the LAMP indicator goes out.

Will not turn on. power light is orange

Many projectors will not turn on, or will turn on and immediately shut down, when the lamp needs replacing. How long has the projector been in use? Most lamps say they're good for up to 2000 hours, but in my experience they're only good for 1400 to 1500 hours. Also, check that the electrical cord is attached tight.

Nec lt380 changed lamp for new one still doesnt work?

If the unit is powering up but the lamp is not igniting, most likely there is a problem with the ballast.(Ballast is the circuit that starts and then maintains lamp current) When starting the projector, it is sometimes possible to look directly into the lens and see small "lightning" flashes. This is the high voltage ignition current trying to start an electrical arc in the lamp. You can also hear a "clicking" sound--same thing. If the ballast is defective, the unit must be repaired at a facility--send it in directly--not through a store. If the unit is totally dead(no lights at all), there usually is a main fuse located near the power cord(inside the unit) that blows. If you've never had tech training, don't attempt to open the unit--it is very easy to accidentally damage components unless you know exactly how to remove the top cover.

Just replaced vt700 lamp. projector still indicating faulty lamp. i also reset the lamp hrs by pressing help on remote. can any one help thanks

Try the old lamp again and reset again and see if that works. When you originally replaced the lamp did it give you a warning that replacement was required or did it just stop? I haven't worked on that model before but you may require a new Ballast (power supply ) that runs the lamp (technician job usually)
