Is there any lights lit or blinking on the front of the set please?if so which they should be labelled on the set
no just a blue power light
There is a process the set follows BEFORE the lamp fires so the first thing is the fans which you can hear, the next thing that happens is the color wheel spins up to 9000 rpm you may be able to pick that whirr out if you listen carefully then the ballast fires the lamp the lamp comes on so if there is any break the lamp wont come on and the set should shut down usually to blinking lights on the front of the set so you are sure the lamp is not lighting because if that blue ON light stays ON the set is not shutting down?
i am sorry the blue light is blinking 4 times
Yes you have a color wheel or ballast issue one of those will need to be replaced is this something you think you can do yourself?
There is little info on this model please take a photo of the inside of the set and upload using the paperclip on your toolbar the color wheel and ballast are available , where did you get the lamp from please?
i got the lamp from shop jimmy
