LP130 projector - no light from lamp

We were getting no light from the lamp in our lp130 projector, so we thought maybe it was the lamp, we have replaced the bulb and still we get nothing from the projector. It does power on and we get the green power light but nothing else.
Please advise?

    I have 2 LP-130's exhibiting the same issue as you describe.

    When I turn the switch on, the fan starts and the green power light up top comes on...but the lamp does not light.

    If anyone has a solution to this issue, please post it up.

    At first, I thought it was the power connection between the lamp and the projector...What confused me was the fact that at times, the lamp would turn on if I turned the projector over 90 degreees...very strange.

    Thanks in advance.

To operate, the LP130 needs all of the following conditions:

1. Both Front & Rear Fans Operating
2. Front Cover Switch Engaged
3. Color Wheel Spinning
4. Bulb trigger voltage and ballast working properly
5. Good bulb with less than 2,000 hours on lamp counter

If the maximum lamp time of 2,000 hours is exceeded, the lamp will not light. The lamp must be replaced and the lamp timer reset before the projector will operate.

To reset the lamp hour counter, press and
hold the reset button, then press the menu/select button (while
still holding down the reset button) for 10 seconds.

    Any idea if the front fan doesn't go on, but there is the lightest flicker of the bulb on startup what that means? Have tried Reset. Have several of these projectors with this same issue.

New Bulb in my In-Focus Lp130 wont light

the connection that the lamp plugs into backs out of place preventing the connection from being made. you will have to remove the top. with thetop off, install the lamp and look to see if the lamp connection is going into the connector on the lamp housing. if not, you can get a flathead and push the connector into place on the lamp housing and hold it there while pushing the lamp into place. to keep this from happening again I always used to melt the connector to the lamp housing with a soldering iron.

We have an LP130 and when powered on, there is no ...

this used to be my favorite easy repair. Reset the lamp hrs and you may have to upgrade the firmware. If that fails, try this and your old lamp may still be good. i'm not making any promises,but there could be a simple solution. remove the rear cover. then push the release in the slot on the front cover with a screwdriver (this is opposite the lens side.) remove the cable coming from the top cover to the main board. remove the top. Now, look at the lamp where it connects to the connection at the rear of the lamp housing. Now take the lamp out. Put it back in slowly and watch to see if the male part on the lamp actually makes the full connection to the lamp connection on the housing without pushing the connection backwards. If it does push back, then that's the problem. you can hold the connection on the housing in place while you seat the lamp all the way. I used to melt the connection to the housing with a soldering iron so when you put the lamp in it wouldn't back out again. However, if this doesn't fix it it could be the colorwheel not working. If the colorwheel doesn't spin, the lamp won't light either.

In-Focus LP-130 and it turns on but the lamp wont fire up, it sounds like the cooling fan goes on and then stops, its a brand new bulb also.. some one said its daughter board that controls the cooling lamp...

the ballast is bad. the fan turns on for the colorwheel, but when the lamp doesn't strike, the fan and colorwheel turn off until it tries again. unfortunately, there are no replacement parts for the lp130.

InFocus LP130 Projector has intermittent power off

go into the menu to find out the lamp hours. it could be the lamp, but if the projector shuts down and not just the lamp, there is either an overheating issue, or a power supply issue.
