Question about Eiki LC-XG210 Projector Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

I was given a Eiki,LC-XG21 projector because the person said it didn't work (the light doesn't come on.) Thinking it might be just the bulb, I thought I'd look into possibly fixing it. Before sinking $ into the bulb is there any way to troubleshoot it? Here's what it does: There are four indicator lights on top (from left to right): Lamp Replace, Warning Temp, Ready, & Lamp. When plugged in the Ready light is solid green and the Lamp light is solid red. When I push the on/off button a low fan comes on. After 15 seconds the Ready light goes off and the fan kicks up to a higher speed. That runs for almost two minutes and then the fan shuts off and the two light return to solid on. Neither one of the other lights come on.

SOURCE: won't power up

Hi, The owners manual says that if the red light is flashing, it is an indicator that it is ready to be turned on (use remote or onboard on button); flashing red & green - too high temperature inside, the unit is overheated. Check and clean the air filters; If the red light is steady, abnormal condition and you have to call for service. A copy of your manual is available at http://www.eiki.com/resources/resourcedownload.ashx?filename=/ownersmanuals/om_xb25_20_sb20.pdf Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: consistent flickering; had the projector on for 2

Check your filter and make sure the projector is well ventilated ( all vents free of objects), all electronics have to cool. Some lamps start flickering when their about to die.

SOURCE: Eiki lc-nb3s projector... fan comes on but no lamp

Please check on of these solutions :

1:Remove the lamp from the projector. Ensure that it has no cracks, discoloration or "smoky" appearance.

2:Try removing and reseating the lamp, or to try another lamp.

3:Reset your lamp timer. Most projectors have no way of knowing if you physically have replaced your lamp. They rely on the user resetting the lamp timer

4:Pull the lamp back out of the unit, give is a brisk shake and reseat the lamp. Occasionally there is some buildup on the lamp contacts or filament during manufacturing.

5:Are the input and output vents blocked or obstructed in any way?

6:Are the filters dirty or clogged? Most manufacturers will recommend filter cleaning on a monthly basis depending on usage

7:Remove any extension cords, power strips and/or surge suppressors. Many current model projectors will not even try to ignite the lamp if they detect drops or fluctuation in voltage supplied to the unit. This is a safety feature to reduce stress on the lamp.

Bulb won't work


If you are sure that you installed the new bulb correctly , then I recommend that you reset your projector . Some projectors don't realize that you changed the bulb physically until you reset them .

EIKI LC-XNB1 BRIGHTNESS


Hi Will39

What you should keep in mind is that this Projector has only got 800 Ansi Lumens wich is not much and to make this worse it is a LCD Projector as well.

Ask your lamp supplier if they can insert a new lamp and check if it gives a better image at all.

If it doesn't , there is'nt really much you can do except buying a new unit with more Ansi Lumens and a better Contrast Ratio as this Eiki's Contrast Ratio is only 250:1 where the standard these days are 2000:1

This is 2000 Hours, 160 Watts, UHP lamp. dont keep it on always.Check the usage and then replace the lamp. It's better to turn off the projector after each class.

The lamp is around $400.00 for Eiki LC-SD15.

Its not the lc-sb20 but the lc-nb3e


Hi there

This sounds like a common Ballast ( lamp's power supply ) problem.

Only way to rectify this is by replacing the faulty Ballast.

EIKI LC 300


I use it for my xbox 360 for both streamed movies and those I buy on DVD and to be honest it beats any glass tube you can buy. I have been really impressed with my but I do not like how they justify a 300 dollar price tag for lamp replacements. Just can't seem to figure out why any light bulb would cost more than 20 bucks. But hey maybe I am old fashioned :) YES it's beautiful for movies, course it's the only projector I have watched them with.
