Dv 10 Lamp trouble

I went to turn on my Dv 10 today, only to find the lamp light glowing bright red.... does this mean the lamp blew?   I am the original owner and really only had about 400 hours on the lamp..... not that much use.....   I thought they were to last to about 2000 hours. It is still under 2 year warranty, but I have a feeling the lamp is not covered.........
Am I screwed?   The lamp seem to run $350-ouch!! Any thoughts.........

    OK- thanks for the help. I pulled the lamp out and really did not see anything that struck me as a fault. No crack, no clear blackened area...... can you be more specific as to what I might be looking for?  




    Thanks


    Also- if I have to replace the lamp- is there any alternative to the $350 optoma charges for a replacemnt bulb?

Hc1500 projector will not turn on


Sounds like the lamp. The only way to really check it is to either put a new bulb in or put the old bulb in a different projector. Neither of which probably help you at this point. But, it does sound like the lamp is blown.

Red power, blinking red temp


Hi,

if the Lamp error and Temperature error lights are flashing red this means that there are two separate errors.

  • A flashing lamp light means the lamp failed to ignite. It could be a lamp driver problem or lamp failure. Replace the lamp to resolve the issue. If the issue is not resolved, then service the projector.
  • A flashing Temperature light signals a fan error. Turn the projector off and allow it to cool down. If the light is still flashing after the projector is turned back on, service the projector.
Goodluck..

I've just replaced the lamp on my Panasonic PT-LM2E projector and it will switch on but no light comes out. The previous lamp blew in the projector after around 2000 hrs. The indicators are as...


I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.

Replaced bulb yesterday worked fine. Today light will not turn on. projector turns on both lights green for 10 seconds, then power goes red and status blinks green for about 5 seconds, then status light...


green green is power on, normal
then it tries to light the lamp, but it can't so the protection circuit comes activated.
you get red and green blinking

Then it goes to standby, red and off.

so something has happened to the lamp, or lamp ballast power supply.
Take the lamp out and check if all is OK with the 2 terminals in the connector, and the leads to the lamp are intact.

Failing that, I would suspect the ballast lamp power unit

Sanyo plv-z1 wont turn on


Hi

This is normally a clear indication that the lamp is in need of replacement.

Take out the lamp and check for any damage like discolouration or bubbles just to make sure before you invest in a new lamp.
