Troubleshooting Tips- Projector -Make sure you have power to the projector. You can tell because you will have a green light turn on when you turn on the projector and you will hear the Star Wars’ whann sound. -If you have two flashing yellow lights your lamp is blown and it is time to replace the lamp. -If you hear a pop sound and see dust come from the projector, this means the lamp has blown.
