Have you checked fans??

make sure they are running and filters are clean and not blocked

also did you try to unplug projector for at least 5 minutes and try repowering to check

also make sure you are properly connected to a source that is hooked up and working - sometimes if you have no video to an input projector will not turn on

hope this helps

good luck!!

    i saw where it was a power supply capacitor issue. It is apparently a common issue unfortunately i didnt know that until AFTER I replaced the bulb. :(

Hi, This may be telling you that the lamp needs replacing. Have a look at the specifications of your projector and note the operating hours of the led lamp. Work out how many hours you have used it for providing it is a Dell part. equivalent parts may have a shorter life. If the led is flashing orange there is a stock fault of a 3300 micro farad capacitor fault in the power supply. Search other reports for this same error.
Do not buy another lamps until you know it is faulty or past its useful life.
These cost about 99 each. Tim

Why is Dell 1800MP orange light?


If you mean an LED light that's orange, it could be an indicator that something's overheated. If you mean, on the screen, then you might check the physical connections of all cables to the projector. They may be loose or damaged.

Dell 1800mp projectors turns on for a few seconds then turns off and lamp light stays solid orange...what's the problem. New bulb?


Hello
If the Lamp light and power lights are blinking orange, the lamp driver has failed, and the projector will automatically shut down. Unplug the power cord from AC mains wall socket, wait for three minutes and replug and see whether it helos you. If not, contact Dell service center.
OK.

I have a Dell 1800 MP that will not power on. When plugged in the power button, lamp light, and temp light all flash amber. I have read my manual and it shows nothing for when all three lights flash. Can...


The projector can fail to start and the power and temp lights will blink orange. This is a known problem with the Dell 1800MP projectors caused by a failed capacitor in the power supply. You can fix it yourself if you know how to use a soldering iron and have some experience with electronics. There are other posts on the Internet that show or point you to the repair. Search on Dell 1800MP power supply failure. If not willing to attempt the repair, I will repair these projectors for you at a cost of $40 plus actual shipping from me to you. You would pay the shipping cost to me. Considering the effort it takes to repair one of these units, this is a fair price. Dell charges $250 for the repair plus parts. I have repaired numerous of these units with 100% success. My occupation is working as a power supply designer for one of the largest manufacturers of drivers for LED lighting. mooredesigns4u@att.net

My dell projector 1800mp is not powering up. No light comes up at all after plugging to outlet


The first possibility is the projection lamp itself. Since you have not mentioned about the hours used on the projector I ccannot comment otherwise but if you have used more than 250 hours then there is a possibility that the lamp is fused out. If you have any friends having the same model you can swap the projection lamp and confirm. The next possibility can be that the filters are choked, the power supply used in the projector - the smps- could be a possibility. Only if you have experience in electronics should you probe into the smps unit/ control board or seek help. lets Hope the fault could be the lamp itself. Good day
