Question about Dell 3200MP Multimedia Projector
I replaced the lamp in my Dell 3200mp projector when the lamp indicator came on. After replacing the lamp with a new one the same problem exists. The lamp indicator is on and the lamp will not even attempt to light. Anything else I can check?
Check out this link with the solution:
i'll also copy and paste it below:
Mods, this should DEFINITELY be in the FAQ's. ***This should probably only be done if your warranty is expired, i'm not sure if taking apart your projector will void it or not, so do at your own risk. (Personally I had nothing to lose, the projector wouldn't work and Dell wouldn't help me so I had a $1500 pile of plastic with no good use) OKAY, if your projector is flickering, the picture is jumping up down left and right, then it shuts down and the lamp light comes on it is NOT THE LAMP!!! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Well,,, at least try this first. For some reason dust on the main board causes this, sounds ridiculous but it's true. I have a 3200mp and just did this 2 hours ago and the projector is as good as new. For a 3200mp: There are four very small phillips screws on the bottom of the projector... remove those. There is one very small phillips screw on the right hand side of the unit if you are looking at the projector from the front.... remove that. Now flip the unit so it is right side up and remove the top piece of plastic (The bottom doesn't come off at all. BE CAREFUL, THERE IS A RIBBON ATTACHED TO THE TOP PIECE SO LEAN IT AGAINST SOMETHING. Now grab a vacuum and your air compressor (or can of duster) and go to town. There will be huge plumes of dust come from under the lamp so keep your vacuum close. Next take the lamp out and clean off the glass lens (there is probably some dust on it) Put it all back together and it should work like a charm!
