Sony VLP-SC50 lamp shuts down and temp/fan light blinks

My sony VLP-SC50 projector has been in storage for almost 2 years. I wanted to use it for Superbowl today but seem to have a problem. The unit comes on and works just fine for approximately one minute, then the lamp automatically turns off and the fan cuts out intermittently about every 5 seconds. The TEMP/FAN light blinks orange and eventually the unit turns off completely. I purchased the unit used and have no manual. I have cleaned the fan filter located above the input area but problem still exists. Help PLEASE pre-game starts in less than 6 hours and I am desperate.

    Fan is not broken, tested unit. Lamp is in good shape as well. I am guessig there is a temp sensor somewhere that is the problem. Any help would be greately appreciated - I have about 8 more months B4 superbowl 2009.

Dell 1209S Projector, tries to turn on, and the fan comes on for 30 seconds and then goes off again. It tries this several times and then the light bulb icon comes off and it doesn't do antything else


Lamp is burned out or makes a popping sound.
When the lamp reaches its end of life, it may burn out and may make a loud popping sound.
If this occurs, the projector does not turn back on. To replace the lamp, see on page 38.
LAMP light is solid amber If the LAMP light is solid amber, replace the lamp.
LAMP light is blinking amber If the LAMP light and the Power light are blinking amber, the lamp driver has failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
If the LAMP light is blinking amber and Power light is solid blue, the color wheel has
failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
Unplug the power cord after 3minutes then turn the display on again. If this problem
persists, contact Dell™.
TEMP light is solid amber The projector has overheated. The display automatically shuts down. Turn the display on again after the projector cools down. If the problem persists, contact Dell™.

Both the LAMP/COVER and FAN/TEMP indicator lights come on, not blinking


with both lights solid. according to the manual all it says is (there is an electrical failure inside the unit, please take to an authorized servicer). if you are able to do this yourself you will need the schematics and a voltmeter to start testing your voltages. your lamp is fine so dont waste your money replacing that anymore. if you would like the service manual send me an email to fixya@markservicepro.com.

Lamp goes off and on.


This sounds more like a heat thing to me rather than a lamp problem. Is there any indication (blinking light?) when the unit shuts down? I would expect to see a temp light blinking or on.

Try cleaning the fan area and verify that the air filter is clean as well.

Update this with what you find.

Thanks,
Dan

Lamp will not come on. Press power button, fan


You might not be getting power from the ballast, it may be gone.The ballast is what gives the lamp it's major charge of high power.

BLINKING TEMP LIGHT ON HP VP6110 PROJECTOR


All projectors are cooled by the use of a fan. The light chamber has its owned fan to extract the excessive heat generated by lamp. Check to see if this fan, close to the fan is operating.
