Customer Question

Good Afternoon:
I have a Sony Model VPL VW50 projector. I just changed the bulb about a month ago and it started acting a little funny. Now when you turn it on, it will not come on at all. The standby green light on the bottom flashes. My son said he saw a message about the projector cover. We just checked the filter and it was terribly dirty so we replaced it but it still is not working. Any thoughts?

Hi there,

Ensure the lamp cover and filter cover are securely fitted.

let me know if any of the other lights are flashing apart from the green standby light.

I have tried adjusting the filter and bulb screws several times. I am wondering if the aftermarket bulb that I bought is the problem?

Did you answer my question above? Now the green light is turning orange at times. ????
Expert:  Pete replied 4 months ago.

Some aftermarket bulbs can have an adverse affect.

What type was it? Did you return it to the supplier?

Expert:  Pete replied 4 months ago.

When the green power light turns orange it means the projector is in power saving mode.
