The Projector lamp lights, but there is now Dell logo, just some random grey pixels. When I spoke to tech support, I reseated the bulb and it was fine, now however that doesn't work.
Did you ever get a solution to this?
I am having the same problem with my 3200MP
The machin will come up but only show a dim white box on the screen. I've purchased another bulb and that was not the problem.

Looks like there is power supply problem as well as the lamp.
1 Clean all filters 2 Check out power supply (usually a few capasitors need to be replaced) 3 Wuld be a good idea to check the lamp in wokring projector, but if the "Lamp" light is constantly on it is more likely a faulty lamp as well.

have almost the same problem. lamp light turned on-->replaced the bulb, now when you turn it on tryies to boot and then the lamp light is on again (but the bulb is brand new).... and no light at all coming out of thing... I guess dell just don't know how to built projectors right way.... and theirs tech support guys are.... they just don't know about projectors more then manual
If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.
Check the items above and let us know your progress.
I have this same projector and am pushing 4500hr on my current bulb. its starting to get a little dim being that the bulb is only rated for 2000hrs. There are brightness setting is the setup of the projector. There are also 4 display modes. game and PC being the brightest. You can change those with the remote. These are the only factors that should effect the brightness. I would say that you might have gotten a bad bulb. try putting the bulb from the "bright" projector into the "new" one and see if that makes a diffrence. also im looking for parts and bulbs for this model projector. If you would like to get rid of anything please let me know. Hope this helps and good luck.
