    I had noticed that and that is not the issue. even with the lampdoor completely closed we were still not getting any power. Thanks for trying though.

Hi there

Make 100% sure that your lampdoor is closed properly because there is a little swith on the lamp door that supplies the power to the mashine ( only when pushed in ) You'll see on the lamp door there is a pin that stands out - that pin pushed in the switch when the lampdoor is closed thus supplying power to rest of the components.

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.

hi,
Did you rest the lamp hour after replacing the lamp. It is recommended the you have to reset the lamp hour after replacing the lamp. For resetting the lamp hour do the following.
1. Power ON the projector
2. Press the Menu button
3. Select OPTIONS
4. In OPTION menu select Lamp Reset and press the enter button.
(If the lamp hour counter is at the heights level then the projector will turn OFF after some time.)
ok

firdt off, did you reset the lamp counter? did you clean the dust out of the projector? it may be overheating as well. if the lamp looks ok, you may have just blown the ballast. try projector doctor online.

New bulb in a hp vp6220 projector


We have a number of these at the school I provide support at and just recently I've had to replace the lamps in six of these.

I've found the method HP details a bit hit and miss, i.e. you might have to try doing a few times before you get the message. First power off the projector and then remove all inputs to it, it won't work if you have anything still plugged in other than the power. Re-apply the power and then press and hold the up button. You should now get a message on the screen 'reset lamp hours for new lamp - press [auto sync] to reset', press the auto sync button as soon as you see this message as it soon goes off.

You can then check via the menu to make sure the lamp hours has been reset to zero.

Sharp XR 10X lamp replacement issues


I sent mine in. They changed the bulb and cleaned the unit. The one thing they did suggest that seemed helpful was to upgrade the firmware. They did this as part of the service. That may be your problem, but I don't know that the firmware is upgradable. Yes indeed, they do charge an outrageous price!! I went through Sharp because they would guarantee the work, and I didn't want to buy two bulbs.
