NEC LT30 - Lamp dosen't turn on.

When i turn on my NEC LT30, it trys to start op, but after 30 sec. it goes to standby mode and the status indicator is blinking red. According to the troubleshooting in the manual, the problem is: "Lamp Error" "Lamp fails to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on again".
But this dosen't seem to work at all no matter how many minutes i wait. I've also tryet to press the "Power ON" button in 10 sec. to reset the lamp. But with no luck. The lamp dosen't seem to be broken at all when i look at it.

Somebody who have a solution to my problem?

    My NEC LT30 is also giving the "Lamp Error" code. I've tried re-seating the lamp, unplugging and holding down the power button to clear the residual charges on the circuitry, and even a new lamp. All with the same results. There is no power switch or reset button on this model. Just a power/standby button. I was digging through the user manual to see if there is a button combo for a "hard reset" to the manufacturer's original settings, but I couldn't find one. I also looked for a service manual for this model, but I'm only finding the user manual. HELP!

    I'm having the same problem. After the machine attempts to start up, i get the blinking red status light (6 times). The manual says just to wait 1 minute and restart, doesn't work. It seems to work once if i take out and then replace the bulb, but only once, then i have to do it again.

    The solution below didn't help. First of all, the lamp must be on to get to the menu to reset the lamp hours. After doing that, it worked twice, but then blinky status light and no lamp again.

From the manual: To reset the lamp hold down the "HELP" button on the remote for 10 sec and the lamp indicator will turn off. Then start up the projector again.

It worked for me!

We have had this problem with two of these. The first one was repaired by replacing the ballast board (NEC P/N 03N-10-0763), but the second one must have other problems, as replacing this part did not help.

Does a lamp error message (6 blinking red status lights) mean the lamp needs to be replaced? or could something else be wrong.

According to NEC technical support, if the status light flashes red six times, this could indicate a defective lamp. If a new lamp is installed and the project still won't turn on, the projector will need service.

NEC VT 595 wont turn on. Just red blinking light

I had this same problem with 2 NEC VT595 projectors. My problem was that there was a broken "tab" on the lamp cover (the plastic cover that slides in place over the lamp) that is supposed to depress a switch which insures the lamp cover is in place before operating the projector. The tab was broken in half and not making the connection there for causing the blinking status light (.5 sec on, 2.5 sec off) indicating a lamp housing or cover error.

NEC MultiSync VT540 not turning on - Temperature error

if the status light is blinking red in 4 sec interval it means that there is something wrong with cooling system. you shold check if there is a thermostat failure or if there are any switches that are not turned on. i suggest you to open the device (using screwdriver) and check if there are any switches broken or damaged.

i had pretty much the same problem (one second interval). i took off the cover and there was a broken switch and i just short-circuit it and now it works

Sorry for my english
