SOURCE: the lamp indicator turns on

The clicking noise is the protection switch that keep shutting down the unit. This happens when an internal fault had been detected.

Do the following:

Unplug the unit from power for some time.
Remove the bulp and refit it in place.
Restart the unit.

If still in protect mode (clicking , lamp light and no start), then there is a fault.
When the problem is the lamp, the lamp light will come on, but usually protection does not click.
Before buying a new lamp that is expensive, have the projector checked, testing with particular attention the high voltage board that will supply power to the lamp. That may be the fault.
If you have a replacement lamp in storage replace the lamp first.

This could be almost any fault but .... usually points to memory OR a bad power supply.

First thing I would check is the power supply. After that, if there is more than 1 stick of memory, try removing all but one. You may have to swap that one remaining one a couple of times (depending on how many sticks there are) as there is a 1 in x chance the one you leave in is the defective one.

Let me know how you make out.

If the beeping is constant, check your keyboard for any keys that are stuck in the depressed position.

No picture, no sound?!?!


This could be a number of things. Your lamp could be bad or it needs to be reseated to the ballast. The lamp is trying to light and it will make the ballast flicker (that is the clicking sound) or your ballast is bad and it needs replaced (it will flicker and click too). Or your color wheel is broken and it will make a clicking sound when turning. If the color wheel is not spinning or broken it will not light the lamp. No lamp no picture.

PC beeping, monitor will not display


we have different sound we can hear in cases of hardware problem, once the video card has loose contact it also beep continously, a beep sound also occurs when the ram(memory card) loose contact, one beep sound when it boot clearly it proceeds as go signal going to operating system. if you are using an upgraded video card remove temporarily and use the on-board from your motherboard. in case that it won't boot and still you hear a beep, beep ,sound then, switch-off the power take out the memory card clean the contact points(bronze color) with pencil eraser, make sure that no remaining residues of eraser remained before you install to the slot. i hope that this solves your problem
