Question about Sony VPL-CS7 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Lamp Cover will not close fully

The lamp cover is half open and half closed. I switch the projector on and the lamp indicator light flashes - the projector works for about 10 seconds and displays the output image on the wall but then the on/off button flashes green constantly and it stops projecting.

Is this easily fixed?

Re: Lamp Cover will not close fully

Hi there

Your lamp is not properly inserted.

The lamp door should close easily if your lamp is in correct.

If teh lamp door is not closed properly then the mashine will keep on shutting down.

How do I fix Lamp/Cover flashing light?

There is a switch or a button that gets depressed when you close the lid of the lamp compartment. See if the plastic of the lid is broken or not hitting it right. Not screwed down right or the lamp is not seated all the way down.

The power light is red, and the lamp light is blinking red. can you help me. thankyou

This indicates that the lamp cover is not properly closed. Disconnect the mains power and carefully open the lamp cover, reseat the lamp and close the lamp cover taking care not to force it.

A fault of this type would be common after a lamp has been replaced, or at least removed for inspection.

Replaced the lamp in my Dell 3200mp projector when the lamp indicator came on. After replacing the lamp indicator is off , but the lamp will not even attempt to light. Anything else I can check?

did the old lamp fail? Or did the lamp light just come on?
Firstly I would disconnect the mains and carefully put the old lamp back in. Test the projector. Then put the new one back in and test.
There can be problems with lamps not being seated correctly, and/or the lamp cover not being fully closed.
Post back for more help if required.

Sony CS5 Wont turn on

the cover switch is probably not fully made.
Ensure that the cover tangs are pushing the pin
on the miniswitches.
Try putting slight pressure on the fan or lamp cover to see if the lamp/cover light
stops flashing.
you will need to do a restart on the PJ to check this out
