Customer Question

I have a JVC DLA-RS50-U projector. It's about 4 years old. Blinking lamp light and red warning light on steady. I have replaced the lamp with an original part from JVC. I used the remote to reset the hours. The projector will not work. I did get the red light and orange light to go off the the green light was on but nothing happened and after a few minutes the red warning light and stanly light came back on and the orange light is blinking. Help!

Hi there,

If replacing the lamp did not help, then the power supply to the lamp is suspect and will need to be tested using a voltmeter.

The ballast board that supplies the power commonly fails in these projectors after a few years, and if confirmed as faulty it will need to be replaced.
