NEC VT595 Projector - Status light blinks red constantly
We had this same problem. In our case it turned out that a little bit of plastic broke off of a tab on the inside of the plastic lamp cover. Without that piece it was not pressing against the sensor that tells the projector that the lamp cover is closed. Without that, it doesn't start. We got it working again by drilling a little hole and sticking a screw through that spot to replace the missing plastic, but I'd rather replace the cover if I could. Really dumb that a little piece of plastic can mess up thousands of dollars worth of equipment (Smartboard 2000i).
NEC VT 595 wont turn on. Just red blinking light
I had this same problem with 2 NEC VT595 projectors. My problem was that there was a broken "tab" on the lamp cover (the plastic cover that slides in place over the lamp) that is supposed to depress a switch which insures the lamp cover is in place before operating the projector. The tab was broken in half and not making the connection there for causing the blinking status light (.5 sec on, 2.5 sec off) indicating a lamp housing or cover error.
Having a problem getting past the red blinking
I have had the same problem with my NEC VT695, however, while trying to repair it, I actually broke off two pieces, first the arm that is attached to the lamp cover that depresses the button, and then the actual button itself. Does anyone know any way to bypass this need to have the lamp cover seated 'properly'?
Replaced the bulb in my
You'll need the remote control of the projector. On the remote, press the HELP button and hold down for 10 seconds.
My NEC vt 595 was
if Power is flashing orange - then it's cooling down
if Status is flashing red - then there are 4 flash combinations.
1 cycle (0.5sec On, 2.5sec Off) lamp cover or housing error
2 cycle (0.5sec On, 0.5sec Off) temperature error
4 cycle (0.5sec On, 0.5sec Off) fan(s) error
6 cycle (0.5sec On, 0.5sec Off) lamp error

Check your owners manual for diagnostics. You can find all documentation for your VT595/695 projector on the NEC support site

VT595 LCD Won't come on. Power light orange
If the lamp life has exceded its safe working limit, it will probably go into a permanent standby mode, I used to have an NEC MT830, I had to hold down the off button for 20 seconds to reset the lamp life, maybe it will be something similar. If you have your manual, it may give instructions, if not there will be a downloadable manual on the NEC website.
