    I work in a school and have the same problem with one of our classroom projectors. Worked great before lunch...came back - no lamp? It has not been used 3000 hours by any means! (Maybe a couple of hundred?)

I have a Benq w710st DLP projector and when i turn the power on after a minute it turns off. The power button turns off and both the lamp and temp lights turn red. How do I fix this and can I do it my


New bulb is probalbly needed. You need to find out what zero means on that projector. The real problem is finding out why the cooling fan is not turning on. This is probably the reason that the temp light is coming on.

I have a infocus IN35 that at 100 hours burnt out a bulb. Thinking that it was just a bulb problem I bought a new bulb and it lasted 20 minutes. a t.v.repair shop said its probably the ballast that is the...


It is not a common problem. Ballasts rarely need repairs. Have you reset the lamp hours to zero after installing new bulb? If, yes to confirm about ballast please ask the TV repair shop man whether previously he had repaired any DLP projector. There is lot of difference in technology of DLP projector & TV (except DLP Projection TV). The problem could be in the projector main board. The lamp lights after getting Lamp ON signal from the projector main board. As the lamp ignites the ballast sends the signal of Lamp Lit. If the projector board senses that any blower/exhaust fan or colour wheel is not running then it will send a signal to Switch OFF the lamp. If you are tech-savvy then do as follows to check about lamp & ballast. Remove 5 pin connector from the projector. Connect projector to mains supply. Get a 5V DC power supply. Connect +ve to pin 3 & -ve to pin 4 of the ballast connector from this supply. The lamp should light. If it does not light then there is problem in the ballast (if the lamp is new). To give a chance you can check it for your lamp which lasted 20 minutes. Generally ballasts are made by OSRAM. You can get the ballast from OSRAM dealer. You will need the part number for that. Take out the ballast, it is there on it.

Hello
if replacement lamp has done, was the lamp timer reset after replacement? and if the lamp is original, there is either a bad lamp or a cooling problem.
Good luck

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

How would this device behave when the lamp is broken, while the projector is otherwise ok?


it would depend on the projector. most will have the fans come on, the colorwheel spin (on dlp projectors only), then the lamp will light; if it doesn't strike, it'll try 2-4 more times. if no light after that, some projectors will have the fans shut off and one or more leds will flash and/or become red. others will have the fans stay on and have the leds blink and/or become red. check the lamp itself for bulges, black spots, or fogging. if it has any of those, replace it. if it doesn't light after that, you have another problem. for lcd projectors, it'll be the ballast or a fan. if it's a dlp projector, it's the colorwheel, ballast or fan. if you don't have the fans working either, the power supply is bad.

Check that you replaced the lamp in the right way, and also that the unit is well reassembled, you may also need to reset lamp counter from menu on some model.

Lp335 in focus projector lamp not turning on; spark switch gap is sparking


It could be the lamp. I have seen this many times on DLP'S. If the ballast is firing it which is usually around 600 volts or so, then i would say it is fine, and only needs a lamp. Let me know if that helped you. Later Jay

Projector Lamps for the Toshiba TDP-MT8 DLP


Have you contacted Toshiba? They will sell you a new fan. It is possible the power supply has a problem. Bulbs usually have a 90 day warranty. Contact where you bought the bulb. Prices are dropping rapidly for new projectors. Yoiu can buy a new oen for under 500.00.
