Can anybody help me with bypasing the ballast?

Thanks.

I read this and kinda frown. Did you follow the steps exactly as posted?

Look for the ballast. Theres 2 sets of wires. Main Power 360V and the control wires. Unplug them from the ballast and find the correct wire to ground.

Please everyone give me feedback if my instructions are not clear maybe I will make a video on how this is done.

I've just done this successfully. However I'm a bit worried about the ballast still being intact.

On my projector (NEC VT440) the ballast is buried deep inside and really inaccessible. I didn't want to completely dismantle the projector so I measured all the voltages with projector intact, found one that was +3.33V without the lamp and 0.03V with the lamp. I then cut just that wire and attached it to the steel housing of the power supply to ground it (as it was the easiest option) and it works perfectly.

I'm worried about burning out my mainboard long term due to having cut just one wire, leaving everything else intact and connected. Is that a problem or will it be fine if I leave everything intact? Do I HAVE to disconnect the ballast??

Thanks

i think you should disconnect the power wire from the power supply to the ballast if it still connected

If you are replacing the bulb why bypass the ballast? Am I missing something or is this to see if the ballast is bad and if it is then can you run the PJ without buying a new bulb?
