Looks to me a Lamp failure or a fault inthe Power section.
these two sections are a bit tricky and so it might require a swap to confirm . The lamp can take in more current and shut off the circuit in the process as it happens.
so also the power supply can shut off if there is heavy drain detected which can be the lamp or the failure of the power supply to deliver as required.
Do not buy out the lamp unless you have a spare one with you.
So also check the power supply section for any dry solder or connector links to be loose.make sure the filter are clean and safety switches of doors are closed.
If not get help to swap and test to confirm.

Proxima c180.I keep getting bulb striking error.

take the lamp door off and look to see if the socket that the lamp plugs into has been pushed out of place. Very common problem with this model. If this is the case, you will have to remove the top cover and push this back into place so the lamp can plug into it completely. If this is not the case, then your lamp or ballast could be bad.

ASK PROXIMA C180 no power at all

if you take the lamp door off, pay attention to the "peg" on the lamp door to see where it depresses the safety switch. if you look it is a silver metal lever that this peg pushes in. plug the unit in and find something no conductive to push and hold the lever in. while holding the lever in push the power button. if the unit powes up then that means the lamp door has distortion from the heat of the lamp. you can try to find another lamp door, or you can get creative and find a way to meld some more plastic to the length of the "peg".

My ask proxima c180 does not power up. I have confirmed the power cable is firmly inserted. When I press the power button nothing happens

take the lamp door off and manually hold in the safety switch.(if you look at the lamp door and see the post, the post is what pushes the switch in normally) while holding the switch in, push the power button. try the button on the projector and the remote. if the unit powers up it means your lamp door is miss-shapen from the heat from the lamp. if this didn't fix you problem, you need a power supply.

ASK Proxima C180 Message saying :Lamp Didn't Strike"," Retrying" What can I do to fix this problem

if you know your lamp is good, make sure the connection on the lamp housing and the connector on the lamp itself are actually connected. sometimes when the lamp is installed the connection on the lamp housing is pushed out and the connection is not actually made. you can also reset the lamp hours and see if that works.
