Whats wrong with my projector?

Hi, i turned my projector on as normal today and usually when i press the power to my sky box on the image comes on straight away. now however i just get the blue screen with a no input message. then the projector power ight goes to red even though its still on. at this point no remote control functions work, and the only thing i can do is turn it off at source. could the bulb need replacing? im not sure as it still projects the blue screen. any ideas?

    i had a spare bulb so i thought i may as well try it. it turned out it was the problem after all, however it gave very confusing symptoms for a mere bulb failure! thanks marie for your suggestion, but im glad i didnt start messing around with it too much!!

Hi Trezza

No this is absolutely NOT a lamp issue.

Take of the top cover and switch on the machine - check that all the fans are working.

If they are all running , this might be a faulty Mainboard.

If you can't spot anything wrong yourself , rather take it to a repairer for a proper inspection.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

    Hi Trezza



    Yes the sympoms you gave does not match that of a faulty lamp at all , but I'm glad you resolved the problem yourself without having to spend a load of money on repairs.

Hi,
Usually the key combination is 'Fn' (function Key) + F4 (or which ever F key that displays the symbol of monitor on it). This key combination is used to toggle the display between monitors.

How do I make the picture fill the width of the screen. I see a 16/9 and 4/3 buttons but they only make the picture taller, I need to make it wider. I have a Vidikron Kronos One projector.


Hi,
Could you please give me more detail as to what you mean by make it wider. Is the picture currently using the width of the projected image? Have you used this projector before? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

When setting my dish for sky i have a great quality and signal but the ID number coming up on my sky box is 13e instead of 002


Hello John,
http://www.dishpointer.com/ is a good web site just incase your hitting the wrong satellite your wanting to line this upto 28.2e Astra.

If after doing this the ID does not work then it may be worth forcing a download onto the sky box.

If you not familiar in how to do this, then follow these steps. turn the power off to the sky box or unplug from the back of the box itself. Then what i want you to do is hold down the Backup button on the front of the box. then reinsert the power or turn back on. while you have the backup button pressed in.

Hold this button down until all the lights on the front of the box illuminate. You should now see on the the screen a warning message come up informing you not to disconnect the power or the sky cable.

This takes approx 10 minutes to do this. It takes longer if you watching this so make yourself a Cuppa.

Hope this helps you out.

Try pressing services

Then try switching scart control to on or off.

Connecting Sky TV to my projector


Which sky box do you have and which model projector. are you trying to use SCART or YUV or what.
Please describe the connector available on the sky box and the projector. if you dont know or they are not labeled nicely please refer to the chart in the link below and let me know what is on both boxes. I will do my best to reply with EXACTLY what cable you need and a good place to order it, US and UK. 
Also let me know what distance you need to run.

Projector does not turn ON


try removing the lamp, usually quite easy, you need to find the door for the lamp. lamps are customer replaceable, usually. If the lamp is bad you can usually see it damaged in the lamp. kind of like you might be able to see the broken filament in your normale house hold light bulb. good luck.
