Hi Max

Is there any power on the unit at all ?

i.e. Does the LED's on the unit indicate that it is in stanby ?

If it isn't then it could just be a fuse that has gone on your Powersupply.

No thats not the solution, various vpl projectors have that problem, the red light eventually turns on after a maximum of 4-5 days... very annoying and noone understands what crazy semiconductor (thats the one causing the problem) sony put it their devices... it costs about $30 (22 €) but i have no clue where and how to replace it, didnt look closer at it so far...

Power light comes on but when you push to start nothing happens.


I get this and similar questions often. You turn on your light. It makes noise, you can see lights - perhaps even blinking lights - and assume that it must be running.

I have a Sony VPL-ES1. After I had moved my beamer from the first to the second floor it won't power on. It's connected to the power well. I've had this problem before but I would like to know...


ensure that the projector goes through the cool down cycle, for example the fans stop running, before you unplug it. Unplugging it will cause it to into power failure mode which will not allow the lamp to turn on until the bulb reaches ambient temperature. it will also extend the life of that very expensive bulb. take the extra time to let it shut down before you unplug it.

I have a projector (SONY VPL-ES1) and the bulb stopped working. Took the bulb out, and not sure if it's blown or not. I checked online, to see if anyone else had similar problems, and sure enough they...


usually the projector powers and cools down. if you restart it it will open the cover, not projecting anything and after 10 seconds it will close again. this happens if the lamp is shortly before the end of the measured lifetime (no fixed hours) to protect the projector. usually if you take it out once or twice it will work for 1 or 2 more times but the bulb is very likely to explode (not destroying the projector but not good anyways)

Hi there

Does this only happen once a signal is inserted ?

Does it happen on both PC & Video signals ?

Have you tried using a different cable yet ?

Blue tinting appearing on the right side of screen on vpl-es1 projector


A warning in the manual was given as to be carefull when using this projector with games as some parts of the screen will not move, just like if you watch Tv on it and there is a channel logo in one corner that doesn't move! It burns the display like it would on a pc monitor if no screen saver set. This is not a problem you can fix, that is perminant damage to the lcd in the projector!! S Platt
