NEC VT595 Projector - Status light blinks red constantly

The bulb is good. The bulb cover is undamaged and is properly seated. All was fine, then not. Red status light blinks on-off endlessly in a very steady rythmn.

We had this same problem. In our case it turned out that a little bit of plastic broke off of a tab on the inside of the plastic lamp cover. Without that piece it was not pressing against the sensor that tells the projector that the lamp cover is closed. Without that, it doesn't start. We got it working again by drilling a little hole and sticking a screw through that spot to replace the missing plastic, but I'd rather replace the cover if I could. Really dumb that a little piece of plastic can mess up thousands of dollars worth of equipment (Smartboard 2000i).

Hi Craig,

If you get no lamp light at all coming from the main projection lens then odds are the lamp ballast or power supply has failed. These can usually be repaired & is a common fault among the VT series projectors. If one of the fans are stuck the unit normally still lights up for a few seconds up to 20 seconds or more until the extra heat trips the safety shutoff & shuts down the projector.

    I'm wondering the same thing. It's crazy that so many of us are having this issue.

    its just a little switch on the inside panel. if you look through the little holes on the side you will see the little black switch. just take a small piece of plastic and super glue a new tab on the door and it will work again

VT595 LCD Won't come on. Power light orange Status red Blincks Once every sec or so.


If the lamp life has exceded its safe working limit, it will probably go into a permanent standby mode, I used to have an NEC MT830, I had to hold down the off button for 20 seconds to reset the lamp life, maybe it will be something similar. If you have your manual, it may give instructions, if not there will be a downloadable manual on the NEC website.

Good luck

Having a problem getting past the red blinking status and orange blinking when trying to start up a NEC VT595 projector. This is after installing a new bulb.


I have had the same problem with my NEC VT695, however, while trying to repair it, I actually broke off two pieces, first the arm that is attached to the lamp cover that depresses the button, and then the actual button itself. Does anyone know any way to bypass this need to have the lamp cover seated 'properly'?

My NEC vt 595 was working fine last night and today i went to turn it on the status and power light started flashing red and orange and there is no picture


if Power is flashing orange - then it's cooling down

if Status is flashing red - then there are 4 flash combinations.
1 cycle (0.5sec On, 2.5sec Off) lamp cover or housing error
2 cycle (0.5sec On, 0.5sec Off) temperature error
4 cycle (0.5sec On, 0.5sec Off) fan(s) error
6 cycle (0.5sec On, 0.5sec Off) lamp error

Thank you kindly in advance for any suggestions on the following issue with the NEC VT595. It will stay on for about 20 minutes and then cut out/off. Then I get the six interval flashing Power and Status...


Hi,
There is a good chance that the problem may due to overheating. The status light would be blinking when it turns off.
Remember to disconnect the mains supply before working on the projector..
You should ensure that there is adequate ventilation and air flow around the projector, and that it is not in a very hot or humid room. Clean the air filters, using a vacuum cleaner. You should not need to remove the filter to clean it. Do not wash the internal sponge filter. It's better to replace it with a new one. The air filters are located on the side of the projector nearest the lens, one at the front and one at the rear.

My nec vt595 wont start up the status light is flashing orange


The only time the "status" light will be orange is when you accidently press the cabinet button and the cabinet is locked.

However, if the "power" light is blinking orange it means that the projector is cooling down and you need to wait a few minutes.

I have replaced bulbs in 3 different types of NEC projectors: a silver, older model thta uses a VT60LP bulb, model VT595 and VT470. The lamp will still not work - the power and status light just continue...


I had the same issue, what I figured out was that I never removed the lamp door correctly, causing a small plastic piece to break off. To see if this is also your problem, inspect the back of the lamp door, top right corner, if it seems a rectangular plastic piece is missing, thats the problem. It presses in a small button nearby the lamp to let the projector know it's safe to power on.

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.

Hi there

I'm shocked that NEC can't answer this guys.

The NEC's & Acer's make use of teh status lights and beeps to warn you that your lamp needs replacement.
