My 3m MP8640 Multimedia Projector does not light up.
There is some clicking sound and bricking indicators of both Lamp and Temperature when a switch is pressed to light up the bulb but it doesn't light up and tries several times until the fun also goes off.

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.

We have a hitachi cpx260 projector. both the power light and the lamp light is red.


This usually means you need to replace the lamp.

1) To do this, power off the machine and disconnect the power cable.
2) Open the lamp compartment, and remove the lamp. You'll need a screwdriver for this. I recommend having both a flat-head and phillips-head as the screw on the compartment door and the screw holding the lamp in are not always the same type.
3) Replace with new lamp and fasten with screw.
4) Reattach lamp compartment door and fasten with screw.
5) Power on your projector and go into your menu.
6) Find the lamp timer setting and reset the timer to zero.

Hello :

Try to change the bulb .

Here is how :


1:Make sure that your power switch is off and that the power cord is unplugged from the electrical socket.
It is also wise to unplug any other cables and label them in order to restore them in the right way once the lamp is replaced.


2:In order to see the lamp, remove the access handle on the outside cover. You may need to use a screwdriver.

3:Pull out the used lamp and clean the relevant parts using micro fiber products and not paper.
Please note that in some projectors a small inside filter should also be replaced.


4:Insert the new lamp into the projector carefully avoiding touching the glass of the lamp itself.
Touching the lamp will deposit skin oil that will likely damage any new lamp during use.





5:Reassemble the access panel, replug the cables and power up the projector.

Things You'll Need:
new projector lamp
screwdriver
micro fiber duster
Warning:
avoid touching the bare projector lamp.

please rate !

Lamp will not come on. Press power button, fan


You might not be getting power from the ballast, it may be gone.The ballast is what gives the lamp it's major charge of high power.

The lamp indicator turns on


The clicking noise is the protection switch that keep shutting down the unit. This happens when an internal fault had been detected.

Do the following:

Unplug the unit from power for some time.
Remove the bulp and refit it in place.
Restart the unit.

If still in protect mode (clicking , lamp light and no start), then there is a fault.
When the problem is the lamp, the lamp light will come on, but usually protection does not click.
Before buying a new lamp that is expensive, have the projector checked, testing with particular attention the high voltage board that will supply power to the lamp. That may be the fault.
If you have a replacement lamp in storage replace the lamp first.

Indicator lights on, no function, no fan, no lamp


Press the MENU button to display the "MAIN MENU", and then select "OPTION".
Press the ENTER button to display the "OPTION" menu, and then select "LAMP RUNTIME".
Press and hold the ENTER button for approximately 3 seconds.
The "LAMP RUNTIME" will change to "TIME RESET [POWER OFF]".
Turn off the power and disconnect the power cord.
This will reset the cumulative usage time for the lamp unit to "0".

When the lamp exceeds 2100hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.
For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]

Toshiba TDP-S20 lamp problem


The lamp ballast which ignites the lamp has failed it sounds like. The red flashing lamp is the tell tale sign with a good lamp installed. Make sure the lamp door is closed too, there is a door switch that can also trigger the red lamp and no startup. There is a company in San Diego CA that can repair the unit called PROJECTOR DOCTOR
