    Oh, how old is the projector/bulb (if you know)?

    Yeah, the ballast is in the projector and is the bit that keeps the lamp arc from running away and melting down, if it has expired the lamp won't create an arc and therefore there will be no light. When you try to turn the projector on with a known good bulb, if you listen close to the case does it make either a series of ticking sounds and then silence, or a series of buzzing sounds and then silence or a tick then a buzz several times, or none of the above?

    when you turn it on it clicks twice then does nothing after that, there is a buzzing noise coming from the projector when it is on.

    I would suggest then that the problem is one of two things, either the High Tension part of the power supply, or the ballast. Either of those things would offer the symptoms you are experiencing, and either of those things are pretty terminal and probably not economically repairable.
