Dell 3300MP Projector Lamp Problem Problem

I borrowed the projector from a friend. It came with a new bulb in a box. He said the lamp would light and then show that it was burned out. The new lamp did the same. He is right! That is what happened!

Is this a pay to play web site??

Others have noted a similar lamp behavior but the solution was not clear.

My presentation is on January 19, 2008. Whew!

The man is exactly right go into main menu and select restor to factory resets and you will have no more problems. I had the very same problem and it fixed it.

I don't know why Dell hasn't sent a notice out on this

Dell 3300 MP Projector


I think this is a lamp issue. Even though your lamp might have an advertised time of 3000 hrs from Dell, it can fail and dim a lot earlier than that. Often within 1000 hrs a projector lamp's brightness can be reduced by up to 40%. Projector lamps brightness and lamp life varies according to how you use your projector and the environment it is in. Our company sells projector lamps and has created a YouTube video to help people get the most out of their projector lamps. You can see the video below. If you decide to buy a new lamp we have the lamp you need in stock at Projector Lamp Experts.

Hope this helps..

How old is your unit and or how many hours are on the lamp?
As the lamps age they run hotter and it could need replacing.
If so, buy just the bulb instead of the lamp assy and install it yourself.

No lit / projected image even with a new bulb!

Let me add...

I had one 3300MP and removed/replaced the bulb to dust off as it was overheating. There is a small metal like switch that resets the bulb replacement (physical switch - take a good look) -- This helped to reset the first time I did this, but doesn't reset the hours on the chip.

However, since this bulb was problematic for me, I have done this a couple of times and since has stopped powering the bulb now. So, thinking it was the bulb, I replaced the bulb, -- No good... So, thinking it was the projector, I bought a new/refurbished one on ebay -- tested the NEW bulb - NO GOOD. now I have TWO PROJECTORS, THREE BULBS and NOTHING THAT WORKS...
