Question about Dell 2200MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Bulb Exploded As I was using my projector, the bulb exploded. There was loud sound of glass breaking and then a strong burning smell. After the unit cooled, I opened the bulb compartment and it was shattered. Does anyone know why this would happen? I was told that when the bulb goes it doesn't explode it gets dimmer.

Did you have the fan on? usually it explodes because of excessive heat, make sure the fan works when you replace the bulb

INFOCUS LP350 WILL NOT POWER ON, SMELLS LIKE A CAP EXPLODED.


did the projector make a popping sound if so that lamp has shattered. the smell would be mercury and the projector will not switch on until the lamp has been reset.
depending if the projector was hot the hot glass may of stuck to the lcd screen so it may not work again.

The ballast unit has most likely failed. Replace the ballast unit, unless the lamp exploded and in which case, there may be glass fragments stopping a fan from turning.

Replaced bulb, shuts off after about 15 to 30 seconds, any ideas?


from experience that when a projector shuts down that quick, a fan was the culprit. If you had a lamp exploded recently, there is a chance a piece of glass get stuck in a fan.

I have the same problem. This is the second bulb in 6 months. The first one lasted 13 months. The bulb explodes inside and makes a loud snap noise, like an arc. The repair guy said it was the ballast along with the bulb. Good luck

Lamp light blinks


The blinking lamp light indicates that there is a problem with the bulb. Mine did this when I had used the bulb past it's life and the bulb was burned out. Use the owner's manual instructions to remove the bulb and visually inspect it. Mine looked burned out - it was black with clouds on the glass. If this is the case with yours, replace the bulb, or replace the whole unit. (Bulbs can be costly.)

check to make sure your lamp is completely in and connected properly, and the lamp door is closed completely, if still no light, pull the lamp out and make sure it is not broken from transporting it or handeling it.

Making sure you do not touch and glass portion of the lamp or surroundings. only touch plastic or "metal using clean dry paper towel for metal contact" as skin oil can destroy a lamp.
