Power light comes on but when you push to start nothing happens.

I get this and similar questions often. You turn on your light. It makes noise, you can see lights - perhaps even blinking lights - and assume that it must be running.

I have a Sony VPL-ES1. After I had moved my beamer from the first to the second floor it won't power on. It's connected to the power well. I've had this problem before but I would like to know...

ensure that the projector goes through the cool down cycle, for example the fans stop running, before you unplug it. Unplugging it will cause it to into power failure mode which will not allow the lamp to turn on until the bulb reaches ambient temperature. it will also extend the life of that very expensive bulb. take the extra time to let it shut down before you unplug it.

Hi my Sony VPL S600 won't turn on at all. It seems like it's not getting any power. I turned it off and a few days later i went to turn it on and nothing, no lights or sound or anything.. What is the...

I know this sounds silly, but check the switch on the back of the projector. There is normally a hardware switch, somewhere around where the power goes into the projector. Make sure this is on. Second, try taking out the bulb, WITHOUT TOUCHING ANY GLASS, and replace it. There is often a safety switch that prevents it from powering up without a bulb. Also, try using a different power cord, or try using a different outlet. If it works with a different power cord, your cord was bad. If it works with a different outlet, your outlet will need to be inspected by a qualified electrician, to make sure there are no shorts or other hazards. If none of this works, contact Sony about getting the projector in for repairs. Please do not try to open the projector your self, there are a lot of capacitors that store energy for long periods of time.
Thank you! Jordan

I have a projector (SONY VPL-ES1) and the bulb stopped working. Took the bulb out, and not sure if it's blown or not. I checked online, to see if anyone else had similar problems, and sure enough they...

usually the projector powers and cools down. if you restart it it will open the cover, not projecting anything and after 10 seconds it will close again. this happens if the lamp is shortly before the end of the measured lifetime (no fixed hours) to protect the projector. usually if you take it out once or twice it will work for 1 or 2 more times but the bulb is very likely to explode (not destroying the projector but not good anyways)

Hi Max

Is there any power on the unit at all ?

i.e. Does the LED's on the unit indicate that it is in stanby ?

If it isn't then it could just be a fuse that has gone on your Powersupply.

Hi there

Does this only happen once a signal is inserted ?

Does it happen on both PC & Video signals ?

Have you tried using a different cable yet ?
