Problem with the ViewSonic PJ503D Projector Lamp Projector wont work project from laptop media playerAds by GoogleProjector Bulbs on Sale Projector Bulbs In Stock, Your Bulb Will Ship Today By ninjayogi on Jul 07, 2009 PLEASE help me! I am not sure what I did because everything worked perfectly forever then one day my projector stopped projecting the media content playing on my laptop. Does that make sense? I can project my laptop screen on the wall fine, but the projection of the files I am watching doesn't show up. I can see the player projected on the wall but not what is playing, the screen is black. Mostly these are avi files, I use a vlc player. I uninstalled and reinstalled my player (thinking maybe I accidentally messed with the settings); Didn't work. I used a different laptop and the files played fine. So I guess I did something to my laptop setting?. I have tried other players as well, GOM, Quicktime, windows player,etc....all have the same effect. Plays fine on my laptop screen but the image in the player stays black when projected on the wall. Audio is fine. My projector is a Mitsubishi HC1500.

HI There, I have just bought a viewsonic pj559d from ebay. Refurbished working with no lamp. I bought a 'JP-UK Genuine Alternative Viewsonic RLC-036-JP Projector Lamp for PJ559D Projector ' and...

A 'genuine ALTERNATIVE', is not a genuine Viewsonic part, but that is unlikely to be the problem. Two choices, take it for professional repair, or send it back to the seller as not working as advertised.

Installation of lamp unsuccessfull. Lamp light continues to come on after new lamp intalled.

Projectors have a Lamp Life Clock that needs to be reset when bulbs are changed for your projector you need to:

1) Turn your projector on
2) Go to the option menu
3) Choose "Lamp Time"
4) Hold the "reset" button for at least 3 seconds on the remote, or the > arrow on the projector.
5) Confirm the dialogue that pops up...

That should be it.

How do i reset the lamp hours? i just bought a new bulb and put it in

Press and hold the UP button on the projector for 5 seconds, this will display the Total Used Lamp Time. Press AUTO on the projector to reset the timer to 0. Wait for roughly 5 seconds for the On Screen Display to disappear.

How do i reset the lamp hours on viewsonic pj503d i cant afford another bulb right now and i know theres a way to reset it just trying to buy some time untill i can afford one thanks alot

Though you can reset timer in the info menu it is unwise to do so as the bulbs can explode if they go past there usage time and can cause damage to projector.
Have a look on ebay there are a lot of bulbs on there maybe you can find a cheap one.
