The Service Default Mode (SDM) is a technical aid that can be used to display the your TV error code.
Follow these instrutions exactly to place your set in SDM Mode.
For sets that still have video do the following.
  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. You should now see the letters "SDM" in the far right hand corner.
  5. If not do step "3' again.
  6. To display the error code hit the "Status" button on your remote.
  7. The TV can store up to "7" past errors.

For sets that have no video do the following.
  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. Wait a few seconds. The red power light should begin to blink.
  5. The blinking sequence will determine the error code.
  6. You will have one long 5 second red blink followed by the error code.
Note: On some sets the TV will automaticaly blink the error code when its powered up without having to go into the SDM menu. If you power light blinks after the set is powered up jot down the sequence.
Example Error Codes from the power light.
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 3
Example #2
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 12

Status light is blinking red, power button orange nec vt700


Hello
Look at the number of blinks of the status light.
[1] If it blinks at one cycle (0.5seconds On and 2.5seconds OFF) : Lamp cover error or lamp housing error. Replace the lamp cover or lamp housing correctly.
[2] If it blinks 2 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Temperature error. The projector is overheated. Move the projector to a cooler position.
[3] if it blinks at 4 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Fan error. Fans sill not work correctly.
[4] If it bliks at 6 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Lamp fails to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on again.
[5] If it blinks continous (Red): Lamp has reached the end of its life. Lamp replacement messege will be displayed. Replace Lamp with same type and number. After replacement reset lamp hour. OK.

I plugged in my xd490u [mitsubishi] data projector...and then power turned red, status turned green for few some seconds. later power blinked [red + green] and did not work. can anyone tell me what the...


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.

Steady red status light on NEC VT45 projector. Would not POWER ON. LAMP was replaced with a new one


the power supply on that model seem to go bad after a while. the caps aren't properly reted it's power needs. they dry up. if you are good at soldering, replace c1 on the board (big cap) with a cap that has a slightly higher voltage rating. or replace the whole power supply. you might not be able to get one from nec, but you can try www.projectordoctor.com

Blinking Light on Mitsubishi SL4SU Projector


To jmatthews

Both power light and status light a solid red with no response to any buttons indicates the bulb timer has expired. You need to reset the timer by pressing and holding the left arrow key, the right arrow key and the power button all at the same time for a few seconds.

If there are no problems, the projector will fire up, but you must replace the bulb as it will fail soon and perhaps explode when it does.

Take care

Blinking status light


Replacing the lamp with an old one was helpful for me. Good news: the projector itself not faulty. Bad news: I have two projectors with the same issue at the same time (the lamps were replaced also at the same time) after only 400 hours of running.

NEC VT47 Blink Sequence but not comming up.


If it is a lamp error try this:
When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.
For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]
