SOURCE: Both the LAMP/COVER and FAN/TEMP indicator lights come on, not blinking

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].

SOURCE: Sony CS5 Wont turn on

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
stops flashing.
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.

SOURCE: Projector won't turn on, Lamp/Cover light on

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!

Power up

Hi mick1907

Take out your lamp and check for any irregularity like marks or discolouration.

If there is no visible damage - put back the lamp and take of the top cover - start the Projector and check if all your fans are running - that is if the machine starts at all.

If the unit doesn't start up at all you will have to replace the Mainboard.
