Question about Sony VPL CX1 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

FAN/TEMP light is flashing

When the machine is powered up the green power light comes on and the fan can be heard about 5 seconds later the machine powers off and the FAN/TEMP light flashes. What does this mean and can I take it to an Electronics shop Like MAPLINS to be repaired or can I do some thing on my own. The projector has been stored in a room which has a temperature of 2deg celcius maybe this has something do do with it

When I plug my Sony projector up turn it on about 5 seconds later the temp fan light comes on what's wrong with it

Any one of the cooling fan inside the projector is not running. There can be two or three fans inside the projector.

I have an optima hd180 that will not power up. The projector was indicating a bad bulb, so I replaced that with a new one. Now it still will not power up and the fan does not come on either.

Problem w/ OEM bulb, it causes a lot of issues from my experience. Your ballast might have gone bad, hopefully it's just that. Check the voltage output of the ballast, make sure you're getting the proper amount.

I got a free sharp notevision PG-m20x. I plug it

if you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do hear it, the lamp may need replacing. if the lamp is new, there is a power supply problem.

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.

Lamp will not come on

try pressing and holding the enter button on the projector for about 30 seconds - this resets it. It worked for me!!
