Hi.

It sounds to me like the new bulb that you've purchased is just as bad as the old one that you took out.

If this was a regular flat screen tv, instead of a projector, then I would say that it was a cpapcitor problem.

But you said that the problem didn't come around UNTIL you replaced the bulb.

I wonder, does the bulb have a special way that it needs to be seated in it's plug?

It could be that it can only go in one direction in order for the contacts to work properly.

Now, it could be that, in removing the old bulb and replacing it, you might have damaged the solder for the socket, preventing the plug from getting a good connection.

Also, sometimes when replacing bulbs, other parts such as resistors can fail.

This can be to voltage instability, electrostatic discharge, power failures, and so on.

I would take the new bulb out, and take it and the old one to Fry's, or to BestBuy.

They both seem to have a rather well stocked supply area for bulbs, it could be that even though your bulbs might LOOK the same, they may be quite different as to the way they are made on the insides.

I hope this helps you out some, and good luck!

You only want to reset if the projector doesn't turn on because it is a safety feature so the lamp does not explode. They get really hot and need to be replaced when due.
There is a reset button on the inside of the
RGB connection bay(look deep) for a reset button, hold it down until the lamp light turns blue.
If flipped over on it's back, you would see it straight down beyond the connectors. Of course this will reset to factory settings. let me hear how it goes good luck!

The lamp does not attempt to turn on anymore on my Runco VX-1C projector. Power to the projector is good but lamp does not turn on.


I was about to chime in that you should reset the lamp hours after inserting the new bulb ... until I read that you couldn't see the menu because the bulb still doesn't turn on. Hmmm...

Have you checked all of the filters to ensure they're free of dust build-up? I'm wondering if it overheated which caused the fault.

Due to the fact that this model is out-of-production your options have become limited. I recommend at this point you give them a call:

New lamp worked for 2 weeks, last night would not turn in so removed lamp thinking it was burnt to send back under warranty. Lamp appeared fine so reinserted and tv surprisinly turned on. this morning...


Edwin, sounds like you might be having a problem with your Ballast. The Ballast is what fires up lamp. Typically if this is an older unit, when you replace the bulb, you will have to replace your ballast as well. It is harder to fire up a new bulb, then it is to fire up an old bulb. That's why you wouldn't notice the problem until you changed your bulb.

Put new bulb in hitachi ultravision dlp tv and lamp light flashes and tv will not turn on. Have reinstalled old build and works fine. Is there any type of reset that needs to be set. New bulb no tv, old...


hey there it sounds like the problem is coming from your ballast board, the ballast board is the power source to the lamp. with time this part starts to wear out and get weak your old lamp is already burning out there for it does not need that much voltage to turn on but the new lamp has not been worn out or used there for it needs the ballast to be working at 100%

hope this solution helps

Replaced old bulb with new bulb (same model), and the TV doesn't turn on. The bulb cage is in, and the back vents are on. For what ever reason the circuit must not be completing because it's not turning...


if the old lamp is still working, try it on just to make sure the new lamp is working, which more than likely it is GOOD. If you hear a clicking, buzzing. you may have a ballast problem. Meaning that this small board is responsible for providing your lamp w/ the correct voltage, and it might not be able to light up your lamp.

Reset lamp timer runco vx-5000


Using the remote control for your projector, turn the unit on, then select 'menu' on the remote. On the menu that pops up in the screen, select 'SERVICE', then 'DISPLAY DEVICE', then 'INSTALLATION'... once you select that, scroll over to the "RESET" under the lamp hours... this should reset it.

Here is a link to the owners manual for your unit.

Service menu passcode for runco vx-1000d


Hello,

I understand you have a VX-1000d.

You only want to reset if the projector doesn't turn on because it is a safety feature so the lamp does not explode. They get really hot and need to be replaced when due. You can buy one from the supplier or online.
There is a reset button on the inside of the
RGB connection bay(look deep) for a reset button, hold it down until the lamp light turns blue.
If flipped over on it's back, you would see it straight down beyond the connectors. Of course this will reset to factory settings.

Do you have the processor?

Projector problem


I have a great deal of experience with that projector in particular. 
The burning smell along with the circle on the screen can be one of two thing in the same general area. Both are not good.
The lamp assembly has its own dedicated cooling fans. these fans can sometimes **** in dust and insects. the lamp runs at a very high temperature and can burn those things quickly. I have often found old lamps with particles fused to the glass.
The other situation is that the lamp burned something and it got stuck to the glass somewhere in the light path. 
if I remember right the projector monitors the temprature of the bulb and will shutdown if it gets too hot.
Runco is based in california and has a great turn around time on projectors. Unfortunately with Runco you would be hard pressed to find a technician that wouldn't just send it to them for repairs anyways. The major down side with Runco is that customers cannot talk directly to engineers or service men. 
Locate a Runco authorized retailer in your area, check runcoes site. and give them a call to see if they cant send it to runco for you. if you cannot find one in your area call Roscor or Blair & Associates in Chicago.
