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.

Hi,
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.

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

Replaced the lamp in my Dell 3200mp projector when the lamp indicator came on. After replacing the lamp indicator is off , but the lamp will not even attempt to light. Anything else I can check?

Dell 3200MP projector. Lamp warning light comes on after approx 30 minutes of use and the lamp turns off. Bulb is new. I am not sure what the warning light is indicating.

Hi Tara

This normally indicates that the lamp will need replacement.

The Ibook and this Projector are compatible as long as you run a Microsoft operating system i.e. Windows 98' and higher.

When replacing the lamp , you can just as well clean out the Projector - this is quite important as it prolongs the life of your lamp.

Hi Lagnitta

Take out the lamp and check for any irregularities like discolouration and marks.

This is unfortunately dammage to the lamp and the lamp will need replacement.

Thanks for using Fixya.
