Solving a projector problem

The model is a Mitsubishi HC3000. It will not turn on and power up when I press the power button. But, the red light is on signifying that it is connected to a power source. It will simply not power up and show me the green light which shows that it is on. Please email for a solution unless I can contact you by chat or cell phone. Please let me know. Thank you guys!

Why does my Mitsubishi XD221U projector click and blink red/green on the power light when turned on?

All projectors run a self diagnosis when you press the power button. This does a kind of "pre flight check". If some component isn't working right then the projector won't fire up.

There's no mystery to these status lights. The answer to what they show is written in the manual. Sorry to be blunt, but if you had bothered to read your manual then you would know that red green flashing power light means that the lamp housing cover isn't closed properly. If it is the status light, then it means that the lamp has gone past its due time for replacement. I only know this because I read the bit in the manual just now about the Status Lights.

Mitsu hc3000 problem "red-green status light blinking and no input"

Heres what the manual says about REd / green lights

Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and contact your dealer

And also this:

Check that the lens cap is removed.
It may take about one minute for the lamp to light up.
The lamp fails to light up on rare occasions. In such a case, wait for a few minutes
and then try again.
If the projector was turned off before the lamp was cooled down suf? ciently last time,
the fan may start rotating and the POWER button may not work after the power cord
is plugged. After the fan stops rotating, press the POWER button to turn back on the
POWER indicator.
Check that the intake vent is clean.
Set SCART INPUT in the FEATURE menu to OFF. (See page 25.)
Check that the lamp cover is closed. (See page 33.)
Check that the cables connected to the external devices are not broken.
When an extension cable is being used, replace it with the supplied cable for check. When
images are displayed correctly, add an RGB signal ampli? er to the extension cable.
Check the operation manual of the video device for its connection.

My projector won't turn on, only the power light shows red, the status light is blank. Tried the remote and manually turning it on.

If the power light is ON and status light is OFF; check if any objects are blocking the air inlet or outlet grill, and remove them if any, and carry out the following.
[1] Unplug the power cord from wall outlet.
[2] Make sure that the projector has cooled off.
[3] Plug the power cord into the wall socket.
[4] Press the power button.
Check whether the cooling fan has stopped. The problem is with overheating itself.
If these does not help you, your projector need service. OK.

It sounds like your lamp may need replacing. Before you go that route try all of these:
-Make sure the lamp cover on the bottom is fully attached. -If you unplug the power cord while the fan is rotating, the lamp may not turn on about 1 minute when you plug the power cord next time. After the status indicator stops blinking press the power button to turn it back on. May have to press it multiple times. -If your Power Light continues to blink red/green then you should contact your dealer.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Blinking Light on Mitsubishi SL4SU Projector

To jmatthews

Both power light and status light a solid red with no response to any buttons indicates the bulb timer has expired. You need to reset the timer by pressing and holding the left arrow key, the right arrow key and the power button all at the same time for a few seconds.

If there are no problems, the projector will fire up, but you must replace the bulb as it will fail soon and perhaps explode when it does.

Take care
