I have attached the troubleshooting page. It says with the lamp indicator light blinking and the warning light on that it's either Lamp does not light up and the unit is unable to project, lamp is turned off during projection or lamp cover is removed. However, it doesn't say what to do or what could be causing it. I have unplugged it for several hours and when I plugged it back in, it says the same thing. I know the lamp and lamp cover are installed properly since it has been working fine for the last 400+ on the bulb. However, just to be safe, I tried two older bulbs as well as my two spare bulbs and I get the same error on the projector. The fan doesn't even kick on. Once you press the power button, it immediately kicks on the warning light and lamp light starts blinking.

Sounds like you have a choice to make. Send in for out of warranty repair or purchase a new projector.

Yeah, that's what it's looking like. Just terrible timing to make a purchase!

I wonder if you have a fan problem? It makes sense the lamp wouldn't light if the fan does not turn on.

My Home Theater is a work in progress.

Probably just need to pull it off the ceiling and open up the unit. Just a PITA to do that! LOL

I talked to my local Pioneer Elite service center and the owner was nice enough to tell me things to try from the service manual. It turns out it was the lamp door latch sensor was acting up. I used a screwdriver to depress it a few times then blew a very quick blast of compressed air on the sensor. Put the lamp door back on and fired up the projector. Came right back to life thankfully! Just wanted to let everyone know what to try if they ever encounter the same issue I had. Thanks again for everyone's help today!

Anyone point me to a specific post in this thread with a comprehensive settings list before I begin the journey through 144 pages of info? Had an unfortunate incident with my neice a few weekends ago and all my settings were "adjusted".

I'm in the process of retiring my loyal FPJ1 as I am getting a new PJ. I'm keeping the FPJ1 as a backup but cannot find the lens cover. Does anyone know what the part # is for one? JVC sells them on their web page:

http://store.jvc.com/catalog.php?cat_id=S103&page=1

Would the one for the HD1 fit the FPJ1?

Thank you for your help,

Just replaced my first bulb, and the resetting of bulb life didn't take. That really doesn't bother me though. The projector runs great, but I can't get a HDMI source to show up. Tried directly linking from ps3 to pj, but still nothing. It worked perfectly until then. Did I change something when I tried (multiple times) to reset the bulb life?

I'll have to buy another HDMI cord to see it that helps.

Update.

Unplugging the power has reset the projector, but it the lamp counter hasn't reset...

Oh well; at least I didn't have to upgrade.

I'm hoping someone can help out with this old projector here -

I recently got a JVC RS2 for next to nothing - I was replacing an old 720p DLP Mitsubishi projector so I was happy to take it. (this also shows i'm not overly picky on the PQ!)

I use my setup for Sports, Video games, TV, movies, in that order.

After getting this projector setup, I cannot, for the life of me, get the projector to focus properly. I can get to the focus menu on the test screen, and it goes from slightly blurry to very blurry, but I cannot get it nice and clear. I've left if at the best possible spot but words are clearly blurry and its still noticed during sports and movies/games etc.

I am not sure if there is much I could troubleshoot to try and fix this issue? Would it be a result of just needing to be cleaned, and if so, how do I go about that?

If the bulb was significantly old would that cause this? I would think the bulb would only get dim (it doesn't appear to be dim) or have poor colors if it were a cheap knockoff (colors look great)... is there anything I could try out to fix this before I dump it off?

Thanks!

Not sure I only mounted it and played with the settings a little - after some searching it appears there is some parts I should try to clean up - I've been trying to find a thread with some pictures to get an idea of how to do it (and what to use) but so far every thread i come across is in another language and the pics are gone.
