The service manual states that a blinking lamp indicator means the lamp cover is not attached securely or the air filter is not inserted properly. You may try removing both and re-attaching to see if this clears up the problem.

The projector turns on but won't project any light through the lens.


If this is a NEC VT series projector, Change the lamp. When if it continues to blink amber and not project and image after installing a new lamp check the lamp cover to see if the micro switch tab on the lamp cover broke off. Some models have a built in lens cover. If the cover is not slid over to open completely the light may not turn on.

Projector keeps shutting off by itself


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Replace the 2 bulbs. Unit powered up correctly and turned on like normal. Then Lamp1 and Lamp 2 indicator lights blinked (Indicating Start UP). After some period of time, it switched to Red 6 times blink...


1 red blink every 2.5 seconds indicates a cover error-- for this check the lamp cover
2 times red blinks very 2 seconds indicates temperature error. for this let the projector cool off check filters and fans that there is no blockage of air for proper cool down
3 red blinks every every 2 seconds Power error. incorrect voltage input or internal malfunction.
4 red blinks every 2 seconds indicates Fan Error check the fans make sure they are working and not blocked or need replacing.
i have nothing on 6 ligths go ahead reconect and check for proper count. hope this information helps.
Best of Luck.

The power light is red, and the lamp light is blinking red. can you help me. thankyou


This indicates that the lamp cover is not properly closed. Disconnect the mains power and carefully open the lamp cover, reseat the lamp and close the lamp cover taking care not to force it.

A fault of this type would be common after a lamp has been replaced, or at least removed for inspection.

Indicator showing LAMP. Does this indicate the lamp needs replacing?


Yes. The lamp is timed and the replacement indicator signals when the lamp is near end of life. If the lamp fails catastrophically it makes a mess... best to replace before that happens.

Temperature indicator turns on in my Epson EMP-500


it appears that one of the cooling fans in ur projector is jammed or not spinning at the required speed!
ope the projector & observe the fans as u switch on!!!if the fans seem fine, then it could be a defective thermistor!

I have solved this problem. Seems the rotating stand on the front bottom needed to be pushed and turned so that it inserts well inside. If it not well pushed the projector keeps shutting down itself every 10-15seconds. Took me about an hour to open the projector and doing all kinds of experiments to finally try that. :)

Right , if the indicator light goes from Green to Orange when shutting down , it will be the Powersupply that is giving problems and not the Ballast.
