Question about HP VP6121 Multimedia Projector
I went to power up my projector tonight. When I turned it on it made the typical sounds but the light didn't go on. No picture on the screen. The power button flashed and the bulb icon light lit up. I haven't had any warning that my bulb may be used up. I'm not sure of the hours nor can I power it up to check. I'd like to be sure it's the bulb before I drop 300 on a new one. Any suggestions? Thank you.
I'm not convinced the bulb is blown.
I have a working VP6121, but the bulb seems a bit dim. I read of some fault on a similar projector going into standby and not turning the bulb on, so I tried a little experiment.
I removed the bulb, and turned the projector on.
Nothing - except for a very feint slow clicking coming from within.
The projector did not turn on, nor did it go into standby.
The bulb assembly only contains 2 contacts, with NO interlock.
So, it would seem that turning the projector on from cold, with no bulb or with a blown bulb, the VP6121 does nothing.
Hope that helps.

Take out the lamp and check for any marks on the inside ( shaft ) of the lamp. If there is marks or discolouration on it then you can be 100% sure it is the lamp.
