A common problem with NEC projectors (and others) is the filter door.

There is a tiny switch inside the door that holds the filter - if the door is broken or not properly shut, the projector will fail to start.



yeah well i tried makin sure the filter piece is in all the way but still no luck. anything else i can do or suggestions cuz its very agrivating to have this and not come on. thanks

This may seem a bit silly to ask, but are you holding the power button down for a few seconds (it takes a couple of seconds of being held down - this is to prevent accidental powerup).

Failing that, try removing and reinserting the lamp (there is an interlock switch inside the housing).
