Yamaha LPX 500 home cinema projector isn't lighting up

My yamaha LPX 500 projector is turning on (green light comes on) then after a short time the system switches to red and turns off. I replaced the lamp about a year and 1/2 ago. I also cleaned the filter. What else should I do before calling a repairman?

The reason for a red light is replacement of lamp or it is running too hot. Have you checked for proper venting, and cleaned them recently. The bulb usually lasts 2000 hours, so you may need another.

Morning, it flashes red light six times

From the manual:

Press the (ON/STANDBY) switch to turn on the projector. If
the power is not turned on, disconnect the AC power cord, then
confirm the ON/STANDBY lamp is turned off. After about 10
seconds, reconnect the AC power cord and turn on the power
again. If the indicators still light up, the electrical system has a
problem. Consult with qualified Sony personnel.

Yamaha LPX-510 projector: There's a large blue circle around the entire image. Bad bulb, lcd panel, needs cleaning...?? Help!

Chances are the lamp was reinstalled and didn't get put in the right position. There could also be a problem with the concentrator/heat shield lens or light pipe (if it has one). Sounds like either someone replaced the lamp and didn't get it back together or the unit has been dropped.

My YAMAHA LPX-500 projectors start up logo remains faintly visible constantly during operation-any answers?

Hello sounds like you have the logo screen burned into one of your LCD panels. This will be a very expensive repair, seen as the LPX-500 is only an 800 lumen projector, it would be a good time to look for a replacement. I would not recommend spending any money on this unit.
Hope this helps

Yamaha LPX 510

Welcome to the disapointing world of LCD projection. Your blue device is dying and thus allowing the green to come through instead of combining for white. I suggest buying a dlp product they are immune to this color decay problem. Good luck

Does not display the color blue?


lamp replacement will not solve your problem. The problem is with the main board or RGB Panels.
