Re: Change the lamp/ didnt help, lamp indicator is on

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 )

Replace the 2 bulbs. Unit powered up correctly and turned on like normal. Then Lamp1 and Lamp 2 indicator lights blinked (Indicating Start UP). After some period of time, it switched to Red 6 times blink...

1 red blink every 2.5 seconds indicates a cover error-- for this check the lamp cover
2 times red blinks very 2 seconds indicates temperature error. for this let the projector cool off check filters and fans that there is no blockage of air for proper cool down
3 red blinks every every 2 seconds Power error. incorrect voltage input or internal malfunction.
4 red blinks every 2 seconds indicates Fan Error check the fans make sure they are working and not blocked or need replacing.
i have nothing on 6 ligths go ahead reconect and check for proper count. hope this information helps.
Best of Luck.

The bulb is not bad, the bulb replacement light is not lit and the bulb appears fine- the green light goes on then off right after you start the projector ---no heat off the back of the unit when starting...

If you have the replaced lamp with you it will be good to place it back again to see the indication to change off.
If so then the bulb must be good but if the same situation comes on then it might be the lamp.
please cross check the power supply for any errors to switch on or low power to the lamp

Lamp will not strike error message

this can sometimes indicate either an overheating issue, a lamp service life problem, or that the cover to the lamp housing has not been secured properly.
