Help With Casio XJ-H2600 Power Issue

Casio XJ-H2600 Power Issue
Hey everyone,

Not sure if this is the right place for help with diagnosing issues on my projector but hoping someone could at least point me in the right direction.

I have a Casio XJ-H2600 that is not functioning properly.


These are the light codes

Power/Standby: Amber Flashing to Red Steady

Lamp: -

Temp: Red Steady



The Casio manual has this explanation for it:

The projector was turned off automatically due to some problem that was probably caused by external digital noise or some other reason. Confirm that the POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit red (without flashing). After checking the POWER/STANDBY indicator, disconnect the power cord from the projector and wait for all of the projector’s indicators to go out. Next, reconnect the power cord and turn projector power back on.
If the error occurs again when you turn power back on, contact your retailer or nearest authorized CASIO Service Center.

Which of course solves nothing.

I've tried a bunch of different reset button solutions but nothing has worked so far.


Opening the top of the projector i don't see any blown capacitors, though i haven't fully disassembled it yet to check every one of them.

Thanks in advance!

This is one of those questions that appear on the forums all the time. Unfortunately, the answer often remains the same...
Call the manufacturer and ask how much it is for them to take a look at it.

Projectors really are quite custom built. While, they may use the same Texas Instruments DLP chips in them, the rest is all Casio, Panasonic, BenQ, etc. It's custom to that specific projector.

Without knowing projector repair, things get extremely tough. Most don't have the right diagnostic tools, and unlike PCs, which are built around some very standardized pieces of gear, projectors are custom.

So, it could be the power supply. It could be the light engine. It could be some bad fans. It could be the main board. It could be the inputs.

Unfortunately, without it being a super popular home theater model which has a history of one issue or another, there is never good information out there for those who want to try a DiY repair. You have to go back to the manufacturer and have them take care of the fix. These days that's often a serious investment that is more costly than the projector is worth. Or at least it will really make a person question getting a repair made.

If you are good with electronics, you can dig into it and check all fans, cabling, etc. and see if it all appears in good working order with tight connections. Sometimes it really is just a cable that has wiggled loose after years of use and moving it around.

Thank you for the clarification, and for taking the time to spell it out! I was afraid that was the case. I suppose i'll try to mess around with some of the internals. Certainly couldn't hurt.

I'll post an update if i end up fixing it.
