Good Day,

You are correct when you say it produces a brighter light for their size.

According to the training meetings, all manufactures, they will replace this type of lighting in the future. Samsung already has on their newer units with led/lcd type lamps.

DLP's/LCD Projection TV's need a very bright light to project the image.

Good question.

My Optoma TX780 projector is not working and all the indicators ie, Temp, Power and Lamp are on. I have changed the lamp though and it worked for a while then the lights came on and would not come on.


you need to reset the Bulb Hours in the on screen menu. it turns off because the bulb contains mercury and after a certain amount of hours the bulb will burst, spreading mercury every where. reset the bulb hours and it should stay on.

My Epson EMP-1815 Projector displays replace lamp. Should I replace only the lamp, or the lamp along with the housing module advised by my supplier, which is quite expensive. Does it require an expert in...


If you understand the requirement of specialist lighting and how to handle the lamp, the cheaper option will be fine.
Make certain you rebuild the light box exactly as you took it apart.
Use a camera to take photos.

Absolutely, they are designed to do so. You will need a svideo cable for video if your laptop doesn't have a parallel port for external monitor. Most projectors have svideo and parallel ports to use them as monitors. If using the external monitor option you select the alt/enter buttons to display on projector.

Lamp resistance and voltage


1. Projector lamps use customized ballasts that ignite the lamp by charging it with a higher voltage in the ignition phase and then dropping down to a lower running voltage once the circuit is created.

2. Projector lamps CANNOT be tested with an AMP or OHM meter. Projector lamps function by igniting ultra-high pressurized mercury vapor across an ARC tube. At the point where the mercury vapor resides there is no conductive electrical material and therefore testing a projector lamp with an AMP or OHM will not work.

Whatever button i press the status light flashes and nothing happens?


hi 1) Check that the power cable is plugged in and that the power button on the projector cabinet or the remote control is on. See pages E-16 and 17 in the manual http://www.fixya.com/user-guide/p155892,m5221,gm34/NEC-VT460-Multimedia-Projector.aspx 2) Ensure that the lamp cover or lamp housing is installed correctly. See page E-30. 3) Check to see if the projector has overheated or the lamp has reached the end of its usable life. If there is insufficient ventilation around the projector or if the room where you?re presenting is particularly warm, move the projector to a cooler location 4) You have pressed control panel key when Control Key Lock is enabled good luck
