SOURCE: hitachi cp-s235 projector- red lights and projector turns off

There is a small tab on the lamp cover that should press into an "L" shaped slot on the lamp housing. This tab may break off, and not press into slot far enough to make the lamp dectection switch click. When the lamp heats up, the plastics expand and the detection switch opens. The projector quits as if no lamp is installed. The fix is to make an extension for the tab. I cut a small piece of sheet metal and crazy-glued it to what was left of the plasic tab.

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.

Cant clear lamp usage hours warning after replacing bulb on model NEC LT 157


Try holding the off button down for 20 seconds, it may be the on button. I had an NEC MT830 which had a standby function once it had reached and exceeded the lamp life safe limit. Once this had happened it wouldn't come out of stanby uinless the lamplife was reset. Your user manual should have the correct method of reset

Good luck, hope I was of assistance

Screen display reads LAMP LIFE OVER on LST 5100P High Definition TV


Welcome to FixYa!

Your lamp has a warranty typically. No matter what, don't expect any more than 1,000 hours out of a projector lamp, and budget accordingly. I had my first lamp go, in low power, when rated for 5,000 hours - at 1,200 hours

This is the way projectors work, and is unfortunate, but ignore the owners manual, because if the lamp was really going to last 2,000 hours they would WARRANTY it for 2,000 hours. The fact that they don't clearly show that how much it lasts for.

Now how can you prolong the lamp life.

i believe most home use projector's lamp's life can over 2K hours at lab.
but the environment should be as:

1. no use it over 3 hours each time.
2. keep the room degree at 20-25C
3. keep your room very clean.
4. adjust projector's fan speed to fast

this might help you . do comment if it helps you

I have a Sanyo PLC-EX20 projector which shuts down after five minutes, what could cause this?


There are 2 possible causes.

The first may be due to overheating. Most projectors have a "air filter" that can be removed and cleaned. If it gets clogged with dust over time, the projector can't breathe and shuts down.

The second cause may be your lamps life hour clock. Most projectors keep track of the amount of time that their bulbs have been active. Once a preset # of hours has passed the projector will limit functionality until a new bulb has been installed AND the lamp life clock reset. Most projectors do not automatically reset the lamp life clock after a new bulb is inserted.

There should be instructions on how to reset the lamp clock in your users manual, and info on cleaning the air filter. Unfortunately I went to the Sanyo website and was unsuccessful in locating a PDF of the user manual for you.

My projector wont turn on anymore, what do you think the problem is ? power supply or the lamp?


Some projectors will not start if you have seriously exceeded the normal life hours of the lamp. If you do not replace your lamp when notified by your projector, the lamp will continue to get so weak that the starting amperage of the ballast will eventually make the lamp explode in the projector. manufacturers don't want you to have to vacuum out bits of glass and mercury from the projector, so they just stop the projector from working until a new lamp is installed.Do you hear a ticking sound of the ballast trying to start the lamp?

Hi, My hc1500 Is having a problem. When I turn it on it makes a clicking sound. Then the Lamp fails to light. The Light is green and the status is green, but soon after the projector shuts off the power...


The clicking sound is the high voltage power supply trying to
ignite the gas in the lamp. The lamp is not firing and coming on.
Check the bulb/ lamp life. Possible the lamp has exceeded its
useful life and may need to be replaced.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).

Panasonic PT-AE900u no image


may i know now what is the age of your projector. have you done replacing the lamp of the unit before.

Lamp life varies by manufacturer and projector type. Lamp life also depends on the projector's environment: air flow, clean air, and also on the level of usage. Check the user's manual or specification pages for your projector to determine the exact lamp life.
