Question about Dell 2400MP DLP Projector

1 Answer

Dell MP2400. Was up and running, then the lamp

Dell 2400MP. Was up and running on my Mac. Have used this about 2 years with no problems; then the lamp light came on. Turned it off and then we took out the lamp to see if had broken filaments. It did not, so put it back into place and now the unit does not turn on at all. Advice please. Thank you!

    It's not any of the things you listed.

    The yellow "LAMP" warning light was displayed on the top of the projector, when the projection all went black.

    In reply to my comment last week came a standard list of things to check. We confimred all of those items and at that time, as a paying customer, we asked for more specific help related to the question above. I am in urgent need of help on this, please. Thank you.

    Your checklist was done and all was in order. Now what, please.



1 Answer

Just a quick check:

• Ensure that the lens cap is removed and the
projector is turned on.
• Ensure the external graphics port is enabled.
If you are using a Dell portable computer,
press (Fn+F8).
• Ensure that all the cables are securely
• Ensure that the pins of the connectors are
not bent or broken.
• Ensure that the lamp is securely installed

If the above doesn't help, can you confirm after checking the connections and reseating the lamp if any lights come on at all.

The bulbs are very costly and they have a short life as is. Stop replacing and get a new unit. The repair is not worth the cost and a new unit has a warranty for at least a year.

I have a question regarding the distance I can achieve with the Dell

The Dell 2400MP Projector is rated for 1-2 to 12 meters, or 3.9 feet to 39 feet.
However, the farther the distance to the screen, the dimmer the image will be.
A great resource for Dell Projectors is this link:

It leads to a little flash tool that allows you to use sliders to adjust throwing distance and then tells you how much light you can expect the wall. It also gives you a ton of other useful information about the projector.

hope this answers your question

Your lamp has failed
Make sure you have the manual..If not , go to Dell website and download one
Then check the web for YOUR lamp model before going to Dell for it

Mac driver need for dell projector

You shouldn't need a driver as long as the Mac video system resolution can be matched by the Dell projector. Considering you are using a Mac Pro I don't think this will be an issue. Have you tried it and it didn't work?
