Jvc x30 lamp light flashing

Recommended Posts

My jvc x30 just stopped working. Standby and warning lights are solid red and the lamp light flashes orange twice at a time. Is it just a lamp replacement or is it something worse. Worried it might be something worse as I don't have my spare jvc hd550 anymore as a replacement :(

Did you hear a pop or did the lamp just go out?  

These are not like DLP where if the lamp explodes it can take out the colour wheel.

No pop, it just suddenly went dark. I do have to mention I hadn't used it for like 2 years and then started to use it again when I had set up my room and that was only like 2 months ago. Also since I had started using it again I did notice a couple of times while watching it that it would go blank or for a second or so then the picture would come back. Does that sound like the lamp was going? I hope it's just the lamp and not anything else.

Not sure why you would see a blank or black flash.  Could be a sign, I've never seen that though.  Normally lamps at end of life get yellowish around the edges of the screen.  Most noticeable on full white fields.  

If it didn't pop, then you should be OK to plug-n-play a new lamp.  I'd still change the air filter and give any vents a vacuum to rid any built up dust.

I am thinking the black flashes may have been hdcp or hdmi issues. So may not be connected. 

So I can use a vacuum on the external air vents? Is it safe?

Is it easy to just get the lamp and change it in the housing module? I don't really want to do soldering etc. can you just click it on or something or does it require some wiring and things?

Couldnt decide where to order myprojectorlamps, justprojectorlamps or ozlamps. In the end Ozlamps seemed the cheapest. They all seem to have the option of original lamp in a generic housing which is the option i went with. I noticed that justprojectorlamps seem the only ones that have original lamps and housing straght from JVC? but they are pricey in comparison.

 

Hopefully ozlamps is reliable and good :). I got too scared of getting just the lamp and using my own housing as the ozlamps guy seemed to think its not recommended unless you are a tech and the warranty they provide if you use your own housing is only 90 days instead of 180 days if i buy the lamp and housing from them.

Just open the suction valve on the hose if your cleaner has that or don't make a seal and let the air just take away any dirt, fluff etc.  If you have one of those clip on brushes, use that.  It will prevent you from making a full seal and it also helps reduce scratching the shiny plastic case.

the issue is the dust is actually like inside the vented area on another vent or something. Like its an inch or 2 inside from where i can get at it. I can only see it through the vents on the corners of the projector. Hard to explain, I dont think the vents open so i cant reach through the vents and the vacuum isnt strong enough to suck it with a gap of an inch or 2. I could maybe try poking through a small brush if i can get one to fit through the holes but not sure thats safe and that might distribute the dust internally..

Yes the dust tends to build up and pack in tight.  A small brush might be what you need.  However, you will want to have the vacuum cleaner going so it can suck out this dirt rather than let it fall inside somewhere.

Suck out what you can.  If you can reduce the built up dirt, then that has to be an improvement on air flow over you had.

I just replaced the lamp with the new one I bought and no go. Still the same problem. No noise besides the led going from green to the warning lights after 10-15 seconds. Sucks. So now I have to figure out where to take it for repairs

      Now this is *really* different, so before I get back to the newer and much costlier headphones, consider that this $13 USD headphone may sound better (equalized) than many so-called flagships that are played "as is".

      Reason for selling: Got a new amp
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
      Extra Info:
      Selling my old amp as I got a new one. This is a very powerful entry level amp. It plays very loud. Supports 2 pairs of speakers, no know issues during the time that I have it, about 2 months. I paid 250 for it on my local record store
      Pretty sure it will be good enough for somebody who wants to get into vinyl, other devices can be connected as well, I used to connect my phone for streaming Groove music and it was really nice.
       
      The amp is old and have several marks that can be seen in the pictures.
      Thanks for looking, as is very heavy pickup is recommended

      Hi all, 
       
      Due to an upcoming move, I have decided to put my Emotiva XPR-5 amplifier up for sale. The amplifier has been stored on a Quadraspire Sunoko-Vent T Bamboo Hi-Fi Rack in a dedicated media room (smoke free environment). The amp has effortlessly powered everything I've hooked up to it, from B&W 600 series speakers, bookshelf speakers, and B&W Diamond series speakers. 
       
      The amp was purchased from Emotiva USA. Given the sheer weight of this beast (42.63kg), and to save my back, pick up is preferable. 
       
      I am happy to arrange a demo for genuine buyers.
