Question about Sony VPL-HS51A / VPL-HS60 Multimedia Projector
I am expieriencing a problem with my projector. when i turn it on i get two solid lights on the machine temp/light and fan cover light and the power/standby button is red instead of green. any suggestions? no picture or light appears from the bulb. i tried unplugging and replugging the unit . thank you.
with both lights solid. according to the manual all it says is (there is an electrical failure inside the unit, please take to an authorized servicer). if you are able to do this yourself you will need the schematics and a voltmeter to start testing your voltages. your lamp is fine so dont waste your money replacing that anymore. if you would like the service manual send me an email to [email protected].

the cover switch is probably not fully made.
Ensure that the cover tangs are pushing the pin
on the miniswitches.
Try putting slight pressure on the fan or lamp cover to see if the lamp/cover light
you will need to do a restart on the PJ to check this out

open the lamp cover if the power indication comes and check the connectors of cover sensors. also check and service the complete unit by disassembling all the cards & connectors. Lamp life also has to check.

This is a known fault with some early HS10s. There is a sony tech bulletin (30-2003-123) details the fault. an earlier bulletin (30-2003-032) claims this affected all models but gave no solution, other than wait for unit to cool down! :-/
30-2003-123 notes that models 10,001-16,708 were affected. I worked around the problem by setting high altitude mode which improves the cooling enough not to fault. No problems during regular use since I did this 6 years ago. Official fix is to replace the lamp cover assembly unit (X-4041-024-1) with unit (X-4041-024-2)
The fault is caused by deformation of the cover assembly due to increased temperature which causes a microswitch to indicate the cover is not installed correctly. I read about someone solving this by placing a matchstick between the cover and switch!

Tips for a great answer:
? When the "LAMP" indicator lights solid red, the projector
will automatically shut itself down.
? When the "TEMP" indicator lights solid red for about 60
seconds, it indicates the projector has been overheated. The
projector will automatically shut itself down.
Under normal conditions, the projector can be switched on
again after it has cooled down. If the problem persists, you
should contact your local dealer or our service center.
? When the "TEMP" indicator lights solid red, it indicates the
fan failed. Please contact your local dealer or our service
