Unplug the projector for a minute of more to see if this allows the projector to operate. I believe the lamp will need to be replaced. Information for replacing the lamp and the LED indicators is in the manual for the projector. The owner's manual for this projector can be viewed, downloaded or printed by clicking here if needed.
