Question about Sony LMP-C121 Projector Lamp for VPL-CS3, CX-2, CX

3 Answers

SONY VPL-CS3 Thr LCD projector was powered down after use, the light was off and the fan was still working. Somebody accidentally pulled the power cord and the unit was disconnected from power - and died. I assume the shock could damage the lamp but .. now no any LEDs are on, including the one that indicates Lamp/cover problem. Connection of the power cord makes a typical capacitor charge ("static" noise) sound , all internal fuses are fine but the power supply does not turn on, it seems like the PS died but it hard to believe it did not survive the power surge. Do you thing replacing lamp can make any sense? Did anyone met similar problem?

    i have the same problem as well and was wondering were i could get the replacement board for it? I have a vpl--cs3 sony

    I have the same problem but this was not caused by cutting the power while the fan was running. Everytime I disconnected and reconnected the power in the last few months, the standby light would not come back on for a few hours. Now it seems to be completely dead except for the static hiss from the capacitors.

    I guess the ps needs replacement. Any idea where this can be sourced?

    I have this problem, although I have taken it apart, and the first board (the one the power plug goes into) seems ok, I wired up a lightbulb to the other end so power is getting through that board ok. there seems to be another power supply for the light and other related bits. Its hard to know which board to replace, although I can see you can buy replacement boards from sonys website.

Hi there

Replacing the lamp won't make any difference at all.

If you have checked the fuse on the Powersupply Board and it tested ok , then the whole Board will need replacement.

1 Answer

I have a Sony lcd data projector- VPL-SC50.. There is a big black blob in the middle, with other lines near the edges. And the blob is growing larger now. But it does not look like a burn out, it looks...


Normally a "blob" on an LCD is a delamination of one or more of the LCD panels. But, they are usually not black. You may have a poor ribbon cable connection from the main board to the LCD panels....there is a ribbon connection to each of the Red, Green and Blue panels. It's either that or a main board failure, but certainly soemthing you want the factory or other authorized service center to check out.

Good luck.

Sony cineza vpl hs51 projector won't project


Something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

The lamp may not have been changed - just the timer reset - How many hours has the lamp really done - 1000, 3000, 5000?
If you know that the hours are genuine, then was the quartz bulb contaminated with a touch of oil from skin contact?
This will substantially shorten lamp life, due to the quartz going milky and opaque.
The easiest way to check, is to pull the lamp and have a look at the bulb.

If need be replace the lamp and reset the lamp timer.

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS51
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter
