Attend to the issues. Lamp cover may mean the cover is not fitted correctly or the switch is faulty like wise the fan issue may mean no rotation so it will not start.

Denis, by default laptops usually output only to their own lcd panel. There must be a key combination on your laptop wich rotates output in 3 steps: lcd panel only, lcd + TV (projector), TV only. The key combination uses a special Function key (FN) usually blue (found near left Ctrl key)with one of the numeric keys. So, first make sure your laptop output is correct and then try input key on your projector.

SOURCE: Reset Timer Lamp Sony VPL-HS60 projector

To reset the lamp timer:
1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual).
2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER.
3) Timer should now read '0'.

Hi David

I think you should replace the lamp.

Hi there

You should first check if there is any visible damage on your lamp. If not then it could be a faulty Ballast ( lamp powersupply )

Hi mick1907

Take out your lamp and check for any irregularity like marks or discolouration.

If there is no visible damage - put back the lamp and take of the top cover - start the Projector and check if all your fans are running - that is if the machine starts at all.

If the unit doesn't start up at all you will have to replace the Mainboard.

I have sony vpl ex7 and the power button keeps on blinking?


If it blinks with 2 flashes, it's overheated. Check the filter unit.
If it blinks with 4 flashes, a fan is not working properly. see if any fan is not turning on, and check why.
If it blinks with 6 flashes, it's a system internal failure.

I have a sony vpl-cs5 but is not turn in on, some body can help me, have a blinking led that say lap/cover.???


That could indicate the following-

1. The lamp cover or filter cover aren't properly closed. Try shutting the projector down> opening both covers> closing them> restart

2. The lamp is nearing the end of its life or is faulty and you'll need to replace it.

Hi there

Replacing the lamp won't make any difference at all.

If you have checked the fuse on the Powersupply Board and it tested ok , then the whole Board will need replacement.
