Re: Input 1

We have a similar problem with our sharp projector at church where the remote is on a long cable up to the projector as it is too far for the infrared. Sometimes it quits listening to the remote and we've found that unpluging the remote cable and plugging it back in restores the operation. Apparently, the long cable introduces noise into the remote input and gives it illegal codes sometimes.
Does yours only do this with that one button?
Hope Ya Fix it! Grace and Peace to you....

Projector only in stanby mode does not switch on

This projector provides two different remote control codes; the factory-set, initial code (Code 1) and the secondary code (Code 2). This switching function prevents remote control interference when several projectors or video equipment are operated at the same time.
When the projector is operated in "Code 2," both the projector and the remote control must be switched to "Code 2." To change the code for the projector:
Select either "Code 1" or "Code 2" in this Setting Menu.
To change the code for the remote control:
Press and hold both the MENU and IMAGE buttons together for more than 5 seconds. After changing the code, make sure the remote control operates properly.
Remote control
Press and hold MENU and IMAGE buttons for more than 5 seconds.
You can change the brightness of the screen.
High ...... Brighter than the Normal mode
Auto ...... Brightness according with the input signal
Normal ... Normal brightness
On start
•When different codes are set on the projector and on the remote control, any operation cannot be made. In that case, switch the code on the remote control to fit the code on the projector.
•If the batteries are removed from the remote control for a long period of time, the remote control code will be reset.

I just replace a lamp on Sony vpl-cs20 and lamp timer is still high

You should turn on the VP-CS20 with the button on projector, NOT THE REMOTE or the instructions wont work.

Using the remote commander while the unit is powered up, press "ENTER", "ENTER", "LEFT"

and "ENTER" in sequence. A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to enter the factory mode.

Press the "UP" key on the remote and the unit is now in service mode. This sequence will add two new groups

to the customer setup menu. Press the "MENU" button to view.

Whenever the lamp is replaced, the lamp timer should be reset. With the unit in the "factory" mode, press

"RESET", "LEFT", "RIGHT" and "ENTER" on the remote commander. Verify the lamp hours have been reset to zero in the service menu.

Hope it helps,

Cannot turn the projector on with the remote control

Hello :

read the following paragraphs please :

1:Are the input and output vents blocked or obstructed in any way? That could cause overheating problem and what you see with your projector is one of it's symptoms .

2:Are the filters dirty or clogged? Most manufacturers will recommend filter cleaning on a monthly basis depending on usage .After cleaning the filter always remember to reset your projector .

3:Remove any extension cords, power strips and/or surge suppressors. Many current model projectors will not even try to ignite the lamp if they detect drops or fluctuation in voltage supplied to the unit. This is a safety feature to reduce stress on the lamp.

4:Pull the lamp back out of the unit, give is a brisk shake and reseat the lamp. Occasionally there is some buildup on the lamp contacts or filament during manufacturing.

5:Try removing and reseating the lamp, or to try another lamp.

6:Remove the lamp from the projector. Ensure that it has no cracks, discoloration or "smoky" appearance.

Unable to switch off projector with remote (Infocus SP4805)

A bit unusual for the projector to stop responding to the remote. Usually it follows when someone has opened the projector, they forgot to reconnect the controls from the case top which also includes the IR receiver. If it isn't that, it could be a broken IR pc board or bad connection. I've seen that.

The worst case is that the IR controller on the main board has failed and if that's the case, you'll have to live with it as the cost of a new board is very high.

Remote control

First, make sure your batteries are good.

For moving the slides ahead, there is a button that says next page. When you push that, it will advance.

O, another things is that you must connect your computer to the projector with a USB cable. I assume that you are trying to run it from a computer.

Perhaps you could explain more about what you are using.

NEC VT47 Blink Sequence but not comming up.

If it is a lamp error try this:
When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.
For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]

Reset Lamp Hours Timer

This works on a couple different Toshiba models -- might work on yours...

Make sure the main power switch is OFF. Hold the "ON", "MENU", and "INPUT" buttons at the same time and turn the main power switch on. Keep them held until the yellow power standby light comes on, then let go. It is done.
