Question about NEC VT47 Multimedia Projector

NEC VT47 Blink Sequence but not comming up.

Hi,
My NEC VT47 Projector stopped working and I now get a blink sequence at power up. I thought the bulb might have gone bad but it was not the bulb. Can you help me to troubleshoot this problem or direct me.

The Blink sequence after power on is:
1 Unit blinks normal
2 Fan Stops
3 Power goes off
4 Beeps 3x
5 Power and Status blinks 6x
6 Power blinks 2x
7 Steps (5&6) happen 4x

Thanks for your help,
Karl

    The status light is blinking red every .5 second at .5 second intervals for 6 cycles. The power light is solid orange. Per NEC manual, it says to wait a minute and restart. It just continues the same error condition. I replaced the lamp, same problem occurs. I tried a known good lamp from another projector, same problem occurs. Any ideas?

    I tried your solution of: For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out.

    Same blinking status light. I replaced the bulb and tried again, same blinking status light. I checked the filter, etc. This projector has not run for 2100 hours, so the bulb should be okay. Please help!

If it is a lamp error try this:
When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.
For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]

Sounds like you lamp ballast has gone bad. I good way to verify this is, when you press power on the projector look inside the lens. If you see a small amount of light, then the ballast is good, and the lamp is bad. If there is no light then chances are the ballast is bad.

Blinking status light


Replacing the lamp with an old one was helpful for me. Good news: the projector itself not faulty. Bad news: I have two projectors with the same issue at the same time (the lamps were replaced also at the same time) after only 400 hours of running.
