Question about NEC VT470 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Lamp won't light / status indicator blinking red

When I switch on the projector, the status light first blinks green a few times, then a beep beep beep is heard and the status indicator starts blinking red, 5 cycle: the manual says lamp failure, "wait a full minute and restart" , I tried it several times but it keeps doing the same. It always goes on standby while the status indicator keeps blinking red. I tried pressing for more than 10 seconds the POWER and EXIT buttons on the remote as well, still no result. The lamp indicator is off, it's only the status indicator which is blinking red. I have not used the projector for more than 1000 hours. Somebody suggested that it might be a ballast problem. What can I do? Please help! Thanks!

Does a lamp error message (6 blinking red status lights) mean the lamp needs to be replaced? or could something else be wrong.


According to NEC technical support, if the status light flashes red six times, this could indicate a defective lamp. If a new lamp is installed and the project still won't turn on, the projector will need service.

Replaced bulb yesterday worked fine. Today light will not turn on. projector turns on both lights green for 10 seconds, then power goes red and status blinks green for about 5 seconds, then status light...


green green is power on, normal
then it tries to light the lamp, but it can't so the protection circuit comes activated.
you get red and green blinking

Then it goes to standby, red and off.

so something has happened to the lamp, or lamp ballast power supply.
Take the lamp out and check if all is OK with the 2 terminals in the connector, and the leads to the lamp are intact.

Failing that, I would suspect the ballast lamp power unit

It sounds like your lamp may need replacing. Before you go that route try all of these:
-Make sure the lamp cover on the bottom is fully attached. -If you unplug the power cord while the fan is rotating, the lamp may not turn on about 1 minute when you plug the power cord next time. After the status indicator stops blinking press the power button to turn it back on. May have to press it multiple times. -If your Power Light continues to blink red/green then you should contact your dealer.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Powers on for only a few seconds


if the power light blinks and the status light is off, check the lamp door. if the power light blinks and the status light is steady red or blinking green, you have a power supply/ballast issue. you may have to send it in for repair. try www.avsolutionsny.com.
