Sim2 HTLink 300 -> Bulb going off

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am having a couple problems with my Sim2 HT 300 Link (early version, not E).

The first one has been going on pretty much since new, although quite a lot more frequent now. I can turn it on, via remote control, and it may start up OK; it may come on upside down with a green cast; or it may start, but not stay on long enough to show a picture, and shut off. Light on the processor remains green as if it thinks it is still working OK. Turn off/back on at processor, and it usually comes on OK. Its getting to where I have to do that a copule times.

But the more pressing problem is that now, it will just turn off the bulb after watching for a while. Fan going in unit, but goes off. Again, to get it going, turn off/back on at the processor.

Anyone have any ideas about what might be wrong?

On the first one...does the lamp have any light coming out (even if you look in the lens)?

On the first one: When I first turn it on, and watch the bulb:
Success if in about 5 seconds after turning on, the bulb turns a quite red color. The screen often comes on upside down, then inverts

Failure if it does not turn red. It comes on for 10-15 seconds then completely goes out. The controller has flashing blue and solid green light.

Sounds like it is not the lamp, but the main board honestly. It can be fixed, but, realistically it is not going to be worth it. Last I checked that was a ~$1500 fix or so.

Thanks. I had decided to not bother trying to fix.

Friday, I purchased an Epson 5910e, and am enjoying it now.

Thanks for the input.

You are welcome. Probably a better bet in the long run.
