I have a problem with the Sony VPL-CS3 Projector, in which it doesn't light up and the Lamp/Cover light is blinking orange while the On/Standby light is blinking red, and I don't have the remote as...

The lamp cover has a safety interlock device so the unit will not come on if the cover is missing, maybe the safety interlock is faulty or the part of the cover that engages the safety has come away. Other than that I'm not sure what the poblem would be. That is were I would start.

Good luck

After changing the bulb image will not come on and solid orange light appears

Other then POWER BUTTON light there are three lights more
1. lamp indicator
2. temperature indicator
3. computer input
witch one light is flashing RED or illuminated RED with POWER BUTTON orange light.
If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself

Hi Vinod

I would suggest you to take out the lamp and check for any damage or discolouration to it.

I'm sure that you'll find this to be the problem , in which case you will have to replace the lamp.
