Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite 1261W

My product power does not go on. What should I do?

  • Try the following:
    • Make sure the power cord is securely connected to the projector and to a working electrical outlet.
    • The projector's buttons may be locked for security. Unlock the buttons or use the remote control to turn on the projector.
    • The power cord may be defective. Disconnect the cord and contact Epson.
    • If the projector's lamp shuts off unexpectedly, it may have entered sleep mode after a period of inactivity. Begin a presentation to wake the projector.
    • If the projector's lamp shuts off and the power and Temp lights are red, the projector has overheated and shut off. Check the solutions for this light status.
    • If the power button on the remote control does not turn on the projector, check its batteries and make sure the Remote Receivers setting is turned on in the projector's menus.
