Tip

Before buying a projector bulb


1. Always be aware of bulb usage hours: bulbs normally last ~ 2000 hours

2. If the bulb pops and goes out:
  • Follow the manufactures safety instructions for this condition.
  • Normally, the bulb will need replacing.
3. If the lamp just turns off:

a. If lamp hours were getting high and the picture was getting progressively dimmer, normally the bulb will need replacing.

b. If bulb hours were low or a few hundred hours from 2000:
  • Clean all filters and air ports.
  • Try the projector again checking overall projector ventilation.
  • There is a heat sensor in most projectors that will shut off the machine if it overheats, so air flow must be unobstructed.
c. If ventilation does not solve the problem:
  • Take out the lamp, following the manufactures instructions.
  • Inspect the lamp bulb visually through the lamp glass window.
  • Look for cracks or damage in the bulb and whether one or both of the lamp wire elements is detached from the top of the bulb.
  • In either case, the bulb is bad and should be replaced by purchase or possibly by warranty if the lamp hours are low.
  • Normally, bulb replacement is the solution, but other issues could also exist.
d. If the lamp looks undamaged and/or you are unsure of the status, the problem could be a lamp ballast, power supply, or main control board issue, and should be evalulated by a technician. Unfortunately, a bad bulb can also result from one of the above issues.

When I put in the new replacement, the tv won't turn on. All I get is a few short bursts of clicking and then it turns off. I think it is because the ballast is not seating properly, but am unsure...


Definitely lamp is not installed properly if TV was working fine before replacment.
Also check for wright part number on new lamp,or new one is defective.

I am told the light is very dim. Is this a sign the lamp is going bad?


From the first moment it is used, the lamp in a projector is losing lumens (a measure of light). Most projectors' lamps are good for 1500 to 2000 hours of use. Even at the halfway point, a significant dimming can be noticed.

If you do not have many hours on the lamp, you may have a defective lamp and should seek some sort of compensation from Mitsubishi or whatever retailer you purchased the projector.

Newer lamp not workering


I don't think that resetting the lamp is the problem if you have had it in there for a few months already. This lamp is rated for 2000 hours. That is abaout 1 year if you use it about 5 or 6 hours a day. If you don't use it that much you should get close to 2 years. There are a variety of factors that will reduce the life of your lamp. Do you let the fan continue to run after the projector is turned off? If not, you will see about half of the regular life. Are the filters clean? You can use a vacuum or rinse out foam filters to clean out the dirt and dust. The lamp needs good air circulation to cool evenly. Are the vents blocked or close to another componant? I'm pretty sure that you just need another lamp. If the lamp was purchased more then 4 months ago, you are probably out of warranty. You can save yourself some money if you buy the bare bulb and replace it in the old cartridge. It looks like the complete lamp module from Sharp runs around 295.00 but the usually have a bare bulb available. We supply a variety of brands fior each projector. You can contact me at 866-470-9877 or go to allprojectorlamps.com. Good luck!

The amber led labeled lamp lit up on my optoma ds303 and the picture disappeared. I replaced the original lamp with an after market lamp I purchased online. It worked for 2hours or so then the amber lamp...


the reason that it turns on without hitting the power button is that it thinks it's still in cooldown mode. while it's on, check the lamp hours through the menu. if it's close to 2000 hours (or the inside of the lamp is blackened or bulging), replace it. after market lamps never seem to last that long. if the fans stay on when the lamp goes off, it could also be the colorwheel. listen for chirping. if it chirps, it's the colorwheel.

PJ-TX100 Projector won´t start up out of Stand-By


Hi Mario

If there is no response on the Projector it normally means that the Mainboard is faulty.

Check if your machine is still under warranty because this quite expensive to replace.

As far as the schematics are concerned - I'm unfortunately not able to help you out with that.
