Question about ViewSonic Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

The first lamp "burned out" after only half a year of use and we only used it once a week. We bought a replacemente lamp and it burned out after three weeks... Someone plugged in the projector, the lamp lit up and then went out. Now the projector tries to light up when turned on, but nothing happens and it shuts itself off after about three minutes.

The early lamp failures are due to poor air flow or longer hours of use.
So take care to clean the filters, see that the lamp brigtness is not put too high and reduce the hours of continuous use.

I installed a single pole rotary dimmer in my dinning room about a year ago. It controls a fan and a dimmer 4 bulb lamp. I used this fixture maybe once or twice a week, and only occasional times we used...


Rotary dimmers are not normally suitable for fan control plus not all types of lamps are dimmable , so used wrongly a dimmer could catch fire.

if lights are haligen lights, you may be adding to the problem, never touch them after you have removed the lamps, do not use your hands to install them, oils from hands cause them to burn out quicker, use a cloth to install them do not touch lights

Kdf- e60a20


I may be late with this but it souonds once again ike dust in and on the bulb cage. These TV's will turn off by themselves if they over heat. The extra dust(not much) can/will cause the TV to heat up and shutdown for a few seconds to a minute. Depending on the time of year and location of the TV can vary.

Try removing the bulb and cleaning it with compressed air and a micr fiber towel. Of course don't touch the blub itself as the skin oils will cause it to break.

Hi, My 60 inch Sony projection model # KDF-E60A20. Purchased March of '06. About 1 year and a half ago she started giving me problems. Every 30 secs or so tv would go "black" and no sound for about 30 secs...


This could be caused by dust on the bulb. Dust can cause the unit to over heat and will shutdown for a few seconds to a minute and then come back on when it has cooled down. This time can vary depending on the location of the unit and the temputure in the house. The dust becomes hot and so the Thermal unit shutsdown for a short while and then comes back on.

Clean the bulb by removing the cage and using compressed air and a micro fiber towel and install back intot he unit. Make sure you follow the Sony Maunal. Also make sure not to touch the bulb as the oils from your skin will cause it to burn out quickly.

Burning out lamps on my 65inch dlp


I have 65" Mits. lamp lasted about 2+ years and burned out. bought new on internet, that lasted about 5 months and went. Got free replacement and that lasted about 4 months. No more free replacements ...

Bought new from different source and it burned out in a week.

Note: These were ALL OSRAM original lamps from reputable suppliers.

They sent a new one but also cautioned about cleaning the "filter" on the lamp housing. NOT the large screens on either side, but the small rectangular one (about 3/4" x 2"). I did this with a shop vac pulling and pushing from every angle and it was really clogged almost solid. No way air was going across the bulb to cool it.

THIS IS CRUCIAL and I feel is the keys to the kingdom! I did this and voila - no more "plastic smell" when installing the new lamp and everything's great!

I feel that Mits should be held accountable for this for not recommending the lamp housing be cleaned periodically (maybe yearly). I really feel if this were done with my original one it would have last a lot longer.
