HI All,

 

Anyone know any tips or tricks for this projector's exciter lamp?  Despite a fresh known-good exciter lamp, no light from said lamp.  I'm 99.9% sure I'm operating this machine correctly.  So, I'm looking for anyone who might know any known issues with these units before I go tearing mine apart.

 

Thanks!

 

Dave

Have you measured the socket with a multimeter? On some projectors, the exciter lamp is turned on when the volume knob is turned up. Bell and Howell is infamous for that issue.

Yeah. Sadly no apparent voltage even when the volume is turned up. :(

Is it solid state or does it have tubes? I have an old B&H projector that's tubes and I had to jiggle them to get the lamp to come on, it took a while as well.

I'm assuming it must have a tube of some kind being from the 30s. I'll crack it open and take a look.

Careful with asbestos in those old projectors.
