Replacing the lamp module requires special considerations:

  1. Turn off the projector.
  2. Wait 30 minutes for the projector to cool down and then unplug it.
  3. On the bottom of the projector, loosen the two screws on the lamp cover and then remove the cover.
  4. Loosen the two screws on the lamp module and pull out the module.
  5. Insert the new lamp module and tighten the two screws.
  6. Install the cover and tighten the two screws.
  7. Turn on the projector. If the lamp does not turn on after the warm-up period, try reinstalling the lamp again.
  8. Press enter on the projector or on the remote control to open the on-screen menu.
  9. Press the up (dell 2300mp - c00589410.gif ) or down ( ) arrow to select Setup and then press the right (c00589412.gif ) arrow.
  10. Press the up (c00589410.gif ) or down (c00589411.gif ) arrow to select Reset lamp hours and then press enter .

Something is wrong in the projector you should have it inspected, theres not much I can suggest without haveing a look at it. I suppose you have had it unpluged for a while and tryed again.

Self-diagnostic for video

  • Dell 2300MP Projector provides self-diagnostic test of the projector video display (for Video, S-video, Component-i). Use this advanced feature for preliminary self-diagnostic on your projector when encountering a display problem for video.
  • After turning on the projector, press "+" and "-" buttons on the control panel simultaneously and release the buttons when screen goes blank.
  • Press "+" and "-" buttons again to exit the diagnostic mode.
  • While in Self-diagnostic mode, the screen will run a seven-color-cycle test as following: "Red--> Green--> Blue--> White--> Watchet Blue--> Dark Green--> Yellow." Ensure that the colors of the test pattern are correct. Contact Dell if the colors are not displayed correctly.

I have a Dell 2300MP DLP projector. It lights up for about a minute then the light goes out. Both the Temp and Lamp indicators are glowing after the light goes out. The fan is working. Will just replacing...


Looks like there is power supply problem as well as the lamp.

1 Clean all filters
2 Check out power supply (usually a few capasitors need to be replaced)
3 Wuld be a good idea to check the lamp in wokring projector, but if the "Lamp" light is constantly on it is more likely a faulty lamp as well.

Check that you replaced the lamp in the right way, and also that the unit is well reassembled, you may also need to reset lamp counter from menu on some model.

A couple of things...

If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.

Check the items above and let us know your progress.

Dell 2300MP - no power


It looks like you may have a loose contact somewhere around the AC input. Try pushing the AC cord or wiggle it gently, if power comes back on; you have a loose connection.

No power to my dell 2300mp


The fuse is a short round maroon colored part to the left of the power plug looking at the power supply module from the direction that you would connect the cord to. it is labeled F1 and it is a 4a 250v. This is not the problem with my power supply though. I suspect one of the components under the heatsink is bad.
as you all know don't bother calling dell.
