Projector doesn't show image.

Projectors sometimes give error codes to help you figure out what might be wrong with it. Read the user manual for your projector if you have it, or look for the manual online. See if it has a "troubleshooting" or "maintenance" section. Projectors often give error codes in the form of blinking lights. The color of the lights and their blinking pattern help you to diagnose the problem. Without knowing the make/model of your printer, that's my best suggestion.

There is no image or light coming from my projector

Hi Sane,

Multimedia Projectors uses a high power lamp to project the image onto a screen. These lamps have a typical life of 2000-3000 hours. It is quite possible that it may have blown.

  1. Confirm that the unit itself switches on. You should have some sort of visual feedback from the projector that the unit is switched on, ie. the power light comes on, if it doesn't, check your power chord.
  2. If there is power on the unit, but no image/light, check the unit for a fault indicator/light. Cross reference this with your user manual.
  3. If you are unable to verify or do not have a user manual, "google search" your make, model and fault-code, else
  4. approach a sales consultant at your nearest Audio & Visual retailer for advise.
My take is that the lamp has blown and needs replacement. These can be obtained from a Audio & Visual Retailer and can be self-installed with a little technical knowledge.

ASK Proxima C420 shuts down after 30 seconds. No indication of overheating or lamp problem.

Might be a problem with the video input. Try a different cable. If HDMI, you will need a really good cable for HDTV or 3D, and they are very expensive. My 12 foot cable cost $180.

The projector comes on, shows an image, then shuts off

power supply problem. the capacitors are probably drying out. it takes a boost of power to strike the lamp, and if the power supply can't handle it, it shuts down. replace the power supply.

Can't get computer images to project

Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.
