Hi Marsat!

Actually both the filter cover and lamp covers have a long straight plastic part which is inserted in small hole. At the end of the holes are micro switches. When you fit the filter cover this switch is pressed and projector knows that it is ok to turn on. Similarly if lamp cover is loose the micro switch is not fully pressed resulting in this message. Tightening it presses the micro swith and the indication vanishes. In your case if plastic parts are intact, lamp cover screw is fully tight, filter is clean and properly seated with a click sound, then may be some micro switch has malfunctioned and you have no option but to take the projector to some qualified repariman.

Lamp/Cover Error


I had the same problem with a "Sony VPL-ES3" projector. The lamp cover light would flash and the projector wouldn't turn on.
I think its a problem with a filter cover. This fixed the problem for me: 
  1. Plug out the projector
  2. Click off the filter at the bottom of the projector.
  3. Plug the projector back in. (the lamp cover light should flash)
  4. Plug the projector out again.
  5. Put the filter cover back on.
  6. Plug the projector in again and it should work fine.
This has worked for me every time I have had this problem.
