Why is my projected image not displaying at all?
When the projector is on, the projector runs like it is displaying an image, but no image displays onto the projector screen.
Is this a good question?
Last answer looked good but just to be a little more concise:
1) Verify all power cables and video connections are good with no bent pins.
2) Try replacing the bulb, but before installing the new bulb verify it is the correct wattage
3) Try replacing the Lamp

Really need more information but it sounds like a lamp issues. These should be a little yellow light on top of this projector. Check if that is on or flashing then you just need to order and replace lamp.
If so follow directions below.

Step 1: Be ready with the right lamp
There is nothing more frustrating that having your projector shut down just before a major presentation or when you are about to watch something special on your home theater. Have your replacement projector lamp ready and waiting.
Your Canon LV-5210 projector uses the Canon LV-LP19-9269A001 projector lamp.

In order for your Canon LV5210 projector to continue working at its optimum levels you need to install an OEM, authentic replacement projector lamp.

Step 2: Recognize end of life signs
When the Canon LV-LP19-9269A001 projector lamp has reached its end of life the LAMP REPLACE on the projector will light yellow. Replace the lamp immediately when you see this. Other warning signs may be a dim picture, color that appears washed and a image that is fading.
Step 3; Installing the replacement projectorlamp
Before changing the projector lamp follow these important safety procedures:
Give the Canon LV-5210 at least one hour to cool down before opening the projector to change the projector lamp. The Canon LV-5210 operates at an extremely high temperature and trying to change the lamp when the projector is still hot can result in a serious burn.
Always unplug the electrical cord on the Canon LV-5210 so there is no chance the projector could get turned on during the installation.
Loosen the two screws holding the Canon LV-5210 projector lamp cover in place. Place the cover aside.
Loosen the two screws on the projector lamp and slowly pull out the Canon LV-LP19 projector lamp assembly by using the built in handle.
NOTE: The used Canon LV-LP19 projector lamp contains mercury and should be properly recycled. Don’t throw it into regular garbage.
Pulling too quickly can cause the bulb to shatter. Learn how to clean up a broken lamp.
Replace the lamp assembly with a new Canon LV-LP19. Be careful not to touch the actual bulb as oil from your fingers can leave black marks on the lamp.
Tighten the two screws on the lamp.
Put back the lamp cover and tighten its two screws.
Connect the AC power cord to the Canon LV-LP19 and turn on the projector to reset the lamp timer.
Resetting the lamp timer counter
After replacing the Canon LV-LP19-9269A001 projector lamp, you’ll need to turn off the LAMP REPLACE indicator by resetting the LAMP REPLACE COUNTER in the Canon LV-5210.

Not resetting it after may stop your projector from turning back on.

The On-Screen menu will be displayed on the left.
Using the arrow buttons, mover the red frame pointer to the SETTING menu icon.
Press the up/docwn buttons, move to the LAMP COUNTER option.
Press OK to open up as the RESET LAMP COUNTER box.
Click on the SET option to open a confirmation window.
The message “Lamp replace counter reset?” is displayed.
Click on YES.
The lamp hours will be reset to zero.
