I just purchased an old mitsubmish vl-2000 projector that seems in great shape. I'm unsure if the lamp is good, but when I turn the unit on there is no light. the standby and lamp light are red and the fan is going. Can you help explain?

Re: lamp won't turn on
Afraid there no way to field test this style of lamp It will show as a open on a test meater so the only way to see if it's the lamp without going and testing ballest voltages and scoping turn on pulses is to replace this spendy lamp Part # 499D046030 for about $350.00

Check your power supply. Take it apart and see if the compositors are all in good shape. If they are popped, puckered or oozing stuff out of them then you are going to have to replace your power supply. It also could be a bad inverter. Is there a buzzing noise before it shuts down? Has been doing it for a while and now won't come on at all now?
Those lamps can be pretty touchy and susceptible to temperature changes and finger prints. Also some discount lamp dealers can accidently sell you the wrong lamp.
Something simple and dull to try is to take that lamp out and put it back in, check that the connections are seated properly and the air pathway from the fans is clear. If the fans were dirty and you put in a new bulb that worked for a while it may have burned out prematurely.
Are you sure that you purchased the proper lamp? Quadruple check that you've connected it properly and that there are no shorts from unwanted contact between leads/traces. If you had to solder anything, then make sure your soldering job didn't short two traces together.
The warning light is sometimes in relation to too much power running through the set, and then it shuts itself off to protect the circuits from basically bursting into flames.

How many hours on the projector lamp? It is possible that it just reached the end of it's life. Most lamps have a life of somewhere between 4000 to 6000 hours of life. If your TV has PIP, try going to that mode. If you can see a picture in any of the PIP modes the lamp is OK. If that works, then it is probably a hardware issue on the video board. A service tech will have to diagnose your issue. Let us know the outcome and good luck.
I say if the part fits into place identically as the original lamp.Go ahead and use it. An extra 10w will not hurt the DLP light engine.You might need to turn the brightness down a little. Let me know - edcarson
