This is a known problem with the Dell 1800MP projectors caused by a failed capacitor in the power supply. You can fix it yourself if you know how to use a soldering iron and have some experience with electronics. There are other FixYa posts that show or point you to the repair. If not, I will repair these projectors for you at a cost of $40 plus actual shipping from me to you. You would pay the shipping cost to me. Considering the effort it takes to repair one of these units, this is a fair price. Dell charges $250 for the repair plus parts. I have repaired numerous of these units with 100% success. My occupation is working as a power supply designer for one of the largest manufacturers of drivers for LED lighting. mooredesigns4u@att.net

    Hi, All. I am still doing these repairs for those that are interested. I have repaired 60+ to date. All the projectors sent to me have had this problem and have been repaired successfully. 01/14/2012

Dell 1800mp projector will not power up and an orange lamp light flashes. It is not the lamp. What is the problem?


have you checked fans??

make sure they are running and filters are clean and not blocked

also did you try to unplug projector for at least 5 minutes and try repowering to check

also make sure you are properly connected to a source that is hooked up and working - sometimes if you have no video to an input projector will not turn on

hope this helps

good luck!!

Dell 1800mp projectors turns on for a few seconds then turns off and lamp light stays solid orange...what's the problem. New bulb?


Hello
If the Lamp light and power lights are blinking orange, the lamp driver has failed, and the projector will automatically shut down. Unplug the power cord from AC mains wall socket, wait for three minutes and replug and see whether it helos you. If not, contact Dell service center.
OK.

Where can I purchase a power supply for my Dell 1800MP projector? When I plug it in, I get no light on the power button (not blue or amber), so I assume it's the power supply.
