Sorry, the projector just died on you: the blinks signal the fact that the mainboard can't start the bulb so either the bulb or the ballast board (the board that powers it) have failed. Since this has happened almost immediately after you have started using it it means that it's a manufacturing defect - they have used faulty parts.
Do not attempt to open it, there's nothing you should do to fix it, it's their problem.
The only thing you must do is to return it immediately.

Vivtek d510 projector has black and white spots covering 1/3 of projected image

The DLP Chip is failing .The DLP or Digital Light Projection Chip contains up to 8 million tiny microscopic mirrors that tilt to project a digital image onto the screen. These mirrors are failing causing light and dark spots to appear.Unfortunately fixing this projector is probably going to cost more than buying a new one. Hope this helps.

My vivatek h1080fd after running for a while starts to flicker, loose resolution then shuts down

I have temporarily fixed this issue by directing a fan at the intake vent on the side of the projector. it's gotta be the intake vent and not the exhaust.

My vivitek d510 projector lamp is not turn on.

You need to check the power supply feed to the lamp circuit and if this is workingg fine check if there is lamp reset- hours used. Also if the filter is blocked remove and clean, check the fan and also the connections/connectors in the mother board.
If not there can be errors in the motherboard.
