Question about Dell 3200MP Multimedia Projector
Dell 3200MP Lamp went out so got new lamp. Still won't light. Turn on on switch illuminates. I hear a tick about 3 times and then the lamp and temp lights come on, the fans run, but the bulb doesn't light.
SOURCE: Dell 3200mp lamp
are both of the lamps the same? have you installed it correctly in the socket. you might need to do a cold start for your projector. unlpugg it and try to wait for 5 minutes before plugging it again and turning it on. one your projector detected that a new lamp is intalled, it should work fine now. but if its still not working, you might want to try and replace the new lamp again. sometimes this happens.
hope this helps.

check out this link with the solution:
i'll also copy and paste it below:
Mods, this should DEFINITELY be in the FAQ's. ***This should probably only be done if your warranty is expired, i'm not sure if taking apart your projector will void it or not, so do at your own risk. (Personally I had nothing to lose, the projector wouldn't work and Dell wouldn't help me so I had a $1500 pile of plastic with no good use) OKAY, if your projector is flickering, the picture is jumping up down left and right, then it shuts down and the lamp light comes on it is NOT THE LAMP!!! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Well,,, at least try this first. For some reason dust on the main board causes this, sounds ridiculous but it's true. I have a 3200mp and just did this 2 hours ago and the projector is as good as new. For a 3200mp: There are four very small phillips screws on the bottom of the projector... remove those. There is one very small phillips screw on the right hand side of the unit if you are looking at the projector from the front.... remove that. Now flip the unit so it is right side up and remove the top piece of plastic (The bottom doesn't come off at all. BE CAREFUL, THERE IS A RIBBON ATTACHED TO THE TOP PIECE SO LEAN IT AGAINST SOMETHING. Now grab a vacuum and your air compressor (or can of duster) and go to town. There will be huge plumes of dust come from under the lamp so keep your vacuum close. Next take the lamp out and clean off the glass lens (there is probably some dust on it) Put it all back together and it should work like a charm!

The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

SOURCE: replaced the lamp in my
did the old lamp fail? Or did the lamp light just come on?
Firstly I would disconnect the mains and carefully put the old lamp back in. Test the projector. Then put the new one back in and test.
There can be problems with lamps not being seated correctly, and/or the lamp cover not being fully closed.
Post back for more help if required.
