Changing a light bulb?


The red light by "lamp" is on. We don't get a light. Do I need to replace the bulb? I opened it up but have no idea how to change the bulb. Do they really cost $250?

Yes the bulb will need to be replaced. You can do a google search and find the bulbs from different vendors at cheaper rates.
As far as knowing how to change it, Dell has excellent tech support.

I've just replaced the lamp on my Panasonic PT-LM2E projector and it will switch on but no light comes out. The previous lamp blew in the projector after around 2000 hrs. The indicators are as...

I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.

I have a BenQ PB 6210. After switching it on, it first displays that the lamp has run 2001 hours and should be replaced. After this window disappears, it takes maybe 2 seconds and the projector shuts...

Hi cholthusen,

Please be informed that the average lifespan of a projector's lamp is around 2000 hours. The light bulb is almost certainly the problem. The best solution would be to change the bulb. The easiest way to do that is to change the lamp assembly (fresh bulb is in the new assembly). You may also try resetting the unit. Turn the unit off, then physically remove the power cord. wait for about 10-15 seconds then start it back again. If this did not work, please replace the lamp.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Replaced both bulbs with brand-new bulbs. Now all

Verify that the lamp doors are securely closed. The blinking red lights indicate a lamp problem. In this case, both appear to be defective. I doubt that the lamps are the problem. double chack all connections and doors for proper seating. Update this if the problem remains.

Sounds like you lamp ballast has gone bad. I good way to verify this is, when you press power on the projector look inside the lens. If you see a small amount of light, then the ballast is good, and the lamp is bad. If there is no light then chances are the ballast is bad.

No display from projector

try resetting the lamp timer. if that doesn't work: listen for a high pitched whir when you power it on. if you don't hear it, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do hear it and it doesn't light, the ballast is bad and needs replacing.

Infocus 4805 Lamp will not ignite after new bulb and reset.

it there is no high-pitched squeal when it starts up, the colorwheel needs replacing. the lamp won't light without it. the part is under $50, but installation is quite involved.
