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.

Projector was turned off wrong and now wont turn back on.


if the led flashes once in 2-second intervals and you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do, the ballast is bad. if it flashes 2 times, the lamp is past 3000 hours. 4 times, fan error. 5 times, temp too high and it needs to cool.

Projector turns off after 15 or so seconds of startup. The dell logo displays for those 15 or so seconds and roughly 1 second before it turns off, it projects a dialog box. It will shut off much faster if...


The problem you're describing is a classic symptom of a defective fan--some fans simply have + and - power connections. However, other fans have a third, yellow wire, for sending a pulse to the main board to tell it that the fan is indeed running. If the main board doesn't get the signal, it's internal programming instructions perform a shutdown in case of any error condition--protects the unit against excessive heat, current draw, etc. MAKE SURE THE DUST FILTER IS CLEAN! A dirty filter causes the fan to pull harder, increasing current draw, possibly triggering the symptom. The other possibility is a defective power supply causing an over-current condition. Again, the main board senses this and cues a shutdown. You'll need to send the unit out to a repair facility to confirm a diagnosis. Any reputable shop will give you a quote first with an explanation of the problem.

Lamp wont stay on. fan continues to work after lamp goes out. When power is turned on light comes on and fan starts working. with in a second or so the lamp turns off but fan continues to run.


Most likely you need to replace the lamp. It is possible the your lamp ballast is failing as it scales back to low-voltage DC drive, but more often than not this problem is traced to the lamp needing to be replaced.

My Benq PB6100 shut off after a few seconds


I had the same problem.
First thing to do is look up the owners manual, unless you happen to still have it, then verify the the sensor for the second (or rear something that sounds not like first) temp sensor is going off. If it is basically the fan that sends air into the lamps compartment may be clogged. I have had mine for several years and recently had the same problem. I almost went out to buy something new until I convinced myself that there was no harm in taking it apart and trying something. Good thing too, since all I had to do was clean the fan and reassemble. After that it stopped turning off by itself and I haven't seen any red lights.
Good luck to You!

Compaq MP2800 Lamp powers down after a few seconds


Hi Wayne

It is normal for the lamp's fan to start running , but should actually happen within 15 seconds of starting up. Try changing the lamp's fan and if the problem still persists then you will have to replace the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

Two red lights are illuminated on the unit and it won't play


Check the air filters. Sometimes if they are dirty, they will stop the airflow to the projector and it will not turn on because it keeps overheating.

Blub goes out during use.


Most fans have a sense line to detect the fan is working properly, Possible the sense circuit has failed. The unit should not start if it thinks the fans are not running. Possible thermal problem with the sense circuit, since your unit starts up then stops.
