Dell 2300MP - no power

I can not get any indication of power when I press the 'on' button - on the unit or the remote. I have changed the power cord with no difference. Worked fine one day, the next time, nothing. Any ideas? Many thanks.

    My 2300MP Projector is not getting power. I tried a different outlet but the green light on the power button still does not come on.

It looks like you may have a loose contact somewhere around the AC input. Try pushing the AC cord or wiggle it gently, if power comes back on; you have a loose connection.

Replacing the lamp module requires special considerations:
  1. Turn off the projector.
  2. Wait 30 minutes for the projector to cool down and then unplug it.
  3. On the bottom of the projector, loosen the two screws on the lamp cover and then remove the cover.
  4. Loosen the two screws on the lamp module and pull out the module.
  5. Insert the new lamp module and tighten the two screws.
  6. Install the cover and tighten the two screws.
  7. Turn on the projector. If the lamp does not turn on after the warm-up period, try reinstalling the lamp again.
  8. Press enter on the projector or on the remote control to open the on-screen menu.
  9. Press the up (c00589410.gif ) or down (c00589411.gif ) arrow to select Setup and then press the right (c00589412.gif ) arrow.
  10. Press the up (c00589410.gif ) or down (c00589411.gif ) arrow to select Reset lamp hours and then press enter .

We have a dell monitor/tv and the remote control wouldn't work all of a sudden. when we tried to fix the problem, somehow we "locked the buttons" and cannot figure out how to unlock it.

Email Dell tech. support with your issue.
But first try removing the power cord and press and hold the power button on the front face of the unit for 30 seconds..
Remove the battery on the remote and press any key on the remote for a few seconds.
Replace the batterys on the remote and power cord on the Monitor.
Try to power up the unit and see if that works.
The Monitor/TV have a CMOS battery which retains all your setup information. By removing the power and holding the power button, you may be able to clear the memory and reset the unit.

A couple of things...

If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.

Check the items above and let us know your progress.

No power to my dell 2300mp

The fuse is a short round maroon colored part to the left of the power plug looking at the power supply module from the direction that you would connect the cord to. it is labeled F1 and it is a 4a 250v. This is not the problem with my power supply though. I suspect one of the components under the heatsink is bad.
as you all know don't bother calling dell.
