Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

When I turn on my projector it almost works then shuts off.

When I turn on my projector, the fan comes on and the lamp comes on a little bit (if you but your hand close, you can see some light coming onto it). The blue light around the power button flashes like it powering up for about 10 seconds. Then the entire bank of lights around the buttons both red and blue flashes once and it shuts down. The fan keeps going for about 10-15 seconds and then it shuts down completely. We have replaced the lamp and tried different outlets.

SOURCE: No light come on from the projector

Thats the projector telling you that you need to replace the lamp. Lamps usually lasts for about 2000 hours so if you had it for a while you may need to replace it.

www.froogle.com and enter your make and model or go to www.projectorcentral.com and find a few retailers in the US that sells lamps.

good luck

SOURCE: Lamp

red light indicates lamp is expired. even though you get temporary light, the lamp is shot. Try BULBMAN.COM for a new lamp.

Check the cooling fans. If they are not rotating the Projector will not start.
Did the lamp explode? If it did a bit of glass has lodged in the cooling fan and stopped it from working.
Hope this helps.

NEC VT595 Projector - Status light blinks red constantly


We had this same problem. In our case it turned out that a little bit of plastic broke off of a tab on the inside of the plastic lamp cover. Without that piece it was not pressing against the sensor that tells the projector that the lamp cover is closed. Without that, it doesn't start. We got it working again by drilling a little hole and sticking a screw through that spot to replace the missing plastic, but I'd rather replace the cover if I could. Really dumb that a little piece of plastic can mess up thousands of dollars worth of equipment (Smartboard 2000i).

Optoma EP716 turns on but no picture displays


Don't ever just unplug the power cord while it is on. The bulb needs to cool down with the fan still on.
Did you ever connect a source?

check to see if the fans are moving. if not, replace the fans. if the fans don't come up, the projector shuts down to protect the circuitry and the lamp. if the fans are fine, most likely the power supply/ballast is not producing enough power to keep the lamp lit and shuts down.

A couple of things...

If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.

Check the items above and let us know your progress.

Projector shuts off after about 45 minutes


Just a long shot, but...

I have an epson 9000i that did the same thing. Turns out that unit has a small fan (I think 60mm) right next to the power supply to keep it cool, in addition to the large fan that exhausts past the lamp. The fan runs non-stop as long as the unit is powered-up for two reasons I can think of - keep the power supply a little cooler, and the lamp a little warmer so there's not such a temp difference when it powers-up. Long story short, that fan had died. I replaced it with an aftermarket 60mm fan and it's been working fine ever since. Hope this helps.
