I have confirmed the bulb is good, however unit will start and try to light the lamp. It goes through count down, gets to 4 and reads "retrying". It does this several times then show the "Lamp will not strike" message.
Fan is on, red light is flashing above power button.

hi, check the video inputs. if there is no video input then the projector will goes off after count down. also check that is the lamp replace light lights up or not. if its lights then you have to change the lamp and then reset the lamp hour. ok
If you replace the lamp but do not reset the lamp hours then the projector will not ignite the lamp to stop it blowing up the lamp and causing further problems. You can reset the hours without the image, on the x2 version you turned on for 1 minute then held down the volume up and down buttons for 10 seconds but all versions vary. The infocus website can usually tell you how though you may have to look for it a bit. Failing that try a firmware update available from the infocus website that should erase its brain so you can start again, hopefully you have kept the original leads it was shipped with to do this otherwise it will cost you another £20
It's most likely the lamp is bad or the part that starts the lamp called a ballast is bad. The LP540 model has an issue with the ballast burning out. The ballast is a part that starts or strikes the lamp. The only sure way to test is to try starting it with a known good lamp.
You can check for signs of a bad lamp. Think about how long you've had your projector & estimate the total hours on your lamp. If it's over 500 it very well could be the lamp as they fail at any time. Remove the lamp cover door & pull out the lamp to visually inspect it. Look in good light & use a magnifier if available too check for any cracks or chips in the small bulb & look to see if the round part of the small bulb is covered with a lot of white or if it's not round anymore. If it's very white it means it has a lot of hours on it. If there's any loose glass inside (check by turning the lamp cage in different directions) then the lamp is bad. If it's nice & clear or has only a small white spot it's probably a good lamp.
I repair almost all Infocus models if you need a quote.
Thanks & good luck,
ok then, it sounds like it is trying to strike the lamp on some of these Sony projections it will keep trying to strike the lamp even though the bulb is no good. The lamp error detection may not be working correctly, there is a detector loop around the ballast and if it is not positioned correctly it cannot correctly detect a bad lamp. Try removing the lamp and see if it is physically damaged, if not it still may be bad and is the most common cause for a no error condition and no light problem.
if mains is ok and fan running ok, could be a bulb service issue, all lcd projectors have an internal lamp life counter which counts down and once the lamp has reached the end of its life it will not fire up and a new bulb will be required.
OSRAM VS. PHILLIPS This is about buying replacement bulbs for the WD62327 TVs.I dont know about the other models but I purchased a PHILLIPS replacement bulb and it worked for about a week and then those dumb flashing lights and no TV. I did some research and others were saying that you had to replace some condensers. Shop would do it for 600 dollars..Well i sent the bulb back and bought an OSRAM replaement bulb. The TV is now working perfect.
