The church We are associated with inherited this projector when we bought the church, The people showed the projector working and about a month later when it was tried to be used, there was no video. The lamp seemed okay, the flashing lamp indicator indicated that the lamp needed to be replaced. The inside of the unit was extremely dirty and dusty. Cleaned that out, I checked the continuity of the old lamp and it showed open so then ordered a new lamp and still the unit will not work.
I am a former tv technician from years back and did not get much of a chance to work on these. I see something about a ballast? Where and what are the part numbers of these ballasts, where to order and how much do they cost? How do I check to keep the costs from going up higher much further...

If it's an LCD base projector, then you'll need to clean out the dust particles that have accumulated on the LCDs that will require you to open up the projector, which I wouldn't recommend if you're not too familiar as there are many components inside.
You do so by doing the following: 1).Start the projector. 2).Press keypad <Source> and <Auto> keys simultaneously, enter " Lamp Hour info" layer 3). Press <Source> and <Auto> keys simultaneously again, then enter factor menu. Do not change anything till you reach Lamp Layer where lamp hour and usage hour is given. If you reset, then all data revert to default - factory reset. you may chage here or under (2). Let me know if this solves your problem.
- Press exit for 3 seconds - The Menu to reset the Hours rises up - Folow the manual on your screen

the lamp is not at problem, but the dlp engine is at fault, u may have to replace it.since u bought it 2nd hand,it is not worth changing the same as it will cost u more than ur buying price.when u plan to buy ur next projector, make sure u buy a new one as it will come with a fresh lamp & manufaturers warranty on the unit & at 4000 / 5000 hours of projector usage is guaranteed!
It is possible that the lenses are dirty.(Someone might have touched the lenses with wet hand) Also check if the illuminating bulb is working fine. Like how old is it and does it need a replacement. This should just work fine
depending on the age of your computer, some of the older video cards in XP only will allow you to show video in 600x800 resolution. When you want to show video go ahead and change both of your display properties (both the primary and the secondary) to 600x800. See if that works.
If that is not what you are refering to go right click on your desktop and look for the properties or settings of your graphics card. it may say graphics properties . In that area there will be tons of options like (when showing video only show it on the secondary monitor) play around with the different settings on your graphics card.
We have a similar problem with our sharp projector at church where the
remote is on a long cable up to the projector as it is too far for the
infrared. Sometimes it quits listening to the remote and we've
found that unpluging the remote cable and plugging it back in restores
the operation. Apparently, the long cable introduces noise into
the remote input and gives it illegal codes sometimes.
Does yours only do this with that one button?
Hope Ya Fix it! Grace and Peace to you....
To be able to provide you with an appropriate solution, pls post back with additional information on: 1. to what will the 2nd projector be connected to; 2. what is the brand/model of the 1st projector; 3. what is the brand/model of the video source (laptop, DVD, others); and 4. will you also be using the audio in/out.
