Epson Projector Help (TW9000)
« on: April 15, 2017, 10:41:56 AM »
Hi all - my Epson PJ's lamp and temp lights are flashing when the unit is switched on - there is no picture - the PJ then switches off after a few minutes.
The manual indicates these flashing lights indicate a projector malfunction. The lamp has about 1800hrs on it so Im sure it hasnt run out of life...it was working fine the day before...

There was a lightening storm in the area last night which could be a factor but the rest of my equipment is working 100%

Does anyone know of a 'control alt delete' method to reset the PJ? Im hoping this isnt going to be a costly excercise...

thanks in advance for any help

Contact RS4
Normally the flashing indicates the lamp needs changing
But rather let the expert look at it

The lamp and assembly is around R2875, but look for less expensive alternatives.  They are very susceptible to surges since they operate at close to their physical limit
