    My old bulb blew so i replaced it with a new one. I turned the projector on and it works during the ten second startup screen during the startup screen the overheating light started to flash and 2 seconds after the startup screen goes away and the blue screen shows up the projector shuts down. I have tried all kinds of stuff and im clueless on what to do.

I actually fixed this myself!!!! Same thing, new bulb, fans work, turn on for first 20 seconds or so, see HP splash screen and then it shuts down. Try below....It worked for me.

Here's the fix: Take off the top cover of the projector. Unplug the wire leading from the two fans in the back of the unit to one of the circuit boards in front of you. Just trace one wire from fan to board. Unplug at board. Turn unit on and it will again turn on, show HP splash screen and then shut down, like it should, because the fans are now disabled. After it completly shuts down, plug the fan wire back into the board. Turn the unit back on and, presto, its working again. It will not turn off.

Try it!

Hi there

Did you reset the lamp timer ?

If you have and the problem still occurs , you should replace the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

My left side tail light doesn't work after changing the lamp. Jeep 2007 - Commander

it worked before the change out?
there are 3 things that are first. on advance electronics, cars. like this. 2007 is 1st year, of wild complexity.
  1. check fuses first. MIP fuse #8,9,10 (8 is left) check that?
  2. check action of park relay
  3. check for trailer wiring hacks (do you have factory hitch option?)
  4. and scan the PCM , do you see any park fail DTCs'
DTCs are system errors.
that is first.
next if not solved, we look in the FSM for that chapter, and the schematics, to see how its is structured. (varies by year, car)

FSM JEEP XK 2007 (book)
factory service manual.

left side rear tail (park) (tail is old name , car has many park lamps now , not just 1 or 2 tails like in the old days.
so it park and the relay of same name.
there are front parking lights too... do those all work>?

my guess, is you didnt check fuses first.
am i right?
fuse 8 is blown?
but that takes out front left park
and left side marker (park ) lamps too.
so did you look at all left park lights first>?

i bet not, if im wrong then you do have wiring errors.
or the new lamp from china is shorted inside, (common)
try one more lamp , like from GE or Philips.

I have a 2002 pontiac aztek. My rear right signal/brake lamp does not work. When i signal left, the front and rear left lights flash normally. When i signal right, the front right light flashes normally...

as for the faster flashing thats as simple as a blown bulb, replace the bulb and see if that fixes the problem, it may fix the lot because the other symptoms you mention are a bad connection, if bulb is fine check the connection isnt loose or corroded over. if it is simply file it back to establish better connectivity,

What does the third light from the left indicate? I have no manual and can't print one to find out. The blinking just started and now printer will not print at all in any mode.

From the left - Light 1 is ink cartridge, (color indicates which ink) Light 2 is Print head, light 3 is configuration, 4 is cancel, 5 is resume , 6 is power.
Probably it's out of yellow ink.

Here's the HP page for your printer :
