If you know your lamp is good, make sure the connection on the lamp housing and the connector on the lamp itself are actually connected. sometimes when the lamp is installed the connection on the lamp housing is pushed out and the connection is not actually made. you can also reset the lamp hours and see if that works.

ASK Proxima C420 shuts down after 30 seconds. No indication of overheating or lamp problem.


Might be a problem with the video input. Try a different cable. If HDMI, you will need a really good cable for HDTV or 3D, and they are very expensive. My 12 foot cable cost $180.

Proxima c180.I keep getting bulb striking error.


take the lamp door off and look to see if the socket that the lamp plugs into has been pushed out of place. Very common problem with this model. If this is the case, you will have to remove the top cover and push this back into place so the lamp can plug into it completely. If this is not the case, then your lamp or ballast could be bad.

ASK PROXIMA C180 no power at all


if you take the lamp door off, pay attention to the "peg" on the lamp door to see where it depresses the safety switch. if you look it is a silver metal lever that this peg pushes in. plug the unit in and find something no conductive to push and hold the lever in. while holding the lever in push the power button. if the unit powes up then that means the lamp door has distortion from the heat of the lamp. you can try to find another lamp door, or you can get creative and find a way to meld some more plastic to the length of the "peg".

My ask proxima c180 does not power up. I have confirmed the power cable is firmly inserted. When I press the power button nothing happens


take the lamp door off and manually hold in the safety switch.(if you look at the lamp door and see the post, the post is what pushes the switch in normally) while holding the switch in, push the power button. try the button on the projector and the remote. if the unit powers up it means your lamp door is miss-shapen from the heat from the lamp. if this didn't fix you problem, you need a power supply.

Replaced bulb for a proxima c160 bulb won't strike led power button flashes red what can I do


You may have purchased an aftermarket generic lamp. The chances that the lamp is defect is about 20% with the counterfeit products....Read here for a better explanation:

I also suggest buying the original lamp as recommended by the above link. You may find yourself troubleshooting further for no reason simply by buying an aftermarket replacement.

Proxima c180 has a rectangular yellow image in the center of the screen. You can see the displayed image through the yellow. The lamp has been replace and no improvement


the polarizer on the blue lcd panel is fried due to excessive dust and heat. you may need to replace the whole optical engine. send it in to an infocus service center for repair. try www.avsolutionsny.com. they're really good.
