I have just recieved this projector from ebay, it came with a new bulb because the old one was at it's life end. I tryed out the projector before replacing the bulb, just out of interest, and it worked fine. I have just replaced the bulb and it powers on OK and I have reset the bulb life, but it can't find a source now.

Ensure a video source is connected to the projector (VGA, DVD, etc)
Unplug the projector to make sure it has completely shut down (not just went into sleep mode)
Plug in power and power on the projector (make sure video source is on first)
The projector should turn on and switch to the video source (manually select if not)
Once you can see the video source, push menu and turn off auto-off.
Auto-off should only work when the projector detect a video source is no longer present on the selected input. So if you are turning on the projector with no video source connected, it will usually turn off shortly after being turned on.
Hi My name is Vortash .. may i suggest that for the price you would pay for a new card you could get a new projector off Ebay or Amazon that just needed a bulb at a fraction of the cost .. regards Vortash
I have found that vertical lines that suddenly appear from projectors are due to poorly connected cables. Sut off your projector and wait for the fan to go off. Then unplug the connectors from the computer to the projector and secure them again, making sure to go all the way. Hope this helps.
Actually you can turn the projector on and then tilt it in all directions and see if picture shadowing changes. I have experience with this issue on DLP TV'S. IT sounds like a light tunnel problem if you can see partial picture behind shadow. It is fixable but very tedious. But can be done. Do you have a picture of the problem that you could send over? Thanks Jay
