    I have a genuine UK HS10 but can't for the life of me remember where I bought it from, only that the price was very good due a web based purchase.

    I am now having a problem which I cannot figure out and am not sure if it is a warranty claim or not.

    It doesn't seem to want to turn on.

    I have checked the power cables and there is nothing untoward, it simply will not respond to the remote or pressing of the power buttons on the unit itself. Its as if it isnt even plugged in. no noises no leds no nothing.

    Is this a common fault? do i need to go through my dealer in order to get it repaired by Sony UK?

    Hello,

    Have you checked the fuse in the plug?

    People have reported an issure where the lamp cover light will flash and the projector won't fire. Have a search for setails on that.

    I would say that your dealer are the first port of call. If you can't remember who, then contact Sony, and maybe they will be able to trace them with the serial number.

    Hope you get something sorted, let us know how you get on.

    Cheers

    Rob

    Thanks rob,

    have checked the fuse and its fine.

    its not a case of it not firing, there are no lights on at all, thermal cutouts or not.

    Could understad if it was thermal cutout but the prohector had been off all day, and on returning home and trying to switch it on, nothing has happened.

    Until now, unplugged it for 10 minutes, plugged it in again and it works.

    This is ok until the time I have people round and want to watch a film only to start waiting unknowingly for it to work again.

    That happened once with my HS10. Dead as a doornail until I unplugged/replugged.

    Gave me quite a scare at the time :)
