Time Projector problem

For some reason my time projector only works part time. It worked fine for a few months but now is only on at random times. Is this a faulty unit? or is there a way to fix this?

The reason these projection displays have problems is usually caused by over expanded solder joints. This is caused by heating in the circuit,through prolonged use. This causes the metal in the solder joints to expand. This expansion will eventually cause the joint to loosen. The join because of the combination of expansion and vibration eventually loses contact with the circuit board connection.The problem is usually easily repaired by resoldering the cold solder joints. This type of problem occurs in all types of electronic devices. When this type of repair does not fix the problem, it is because during the process of becoming faulty it has taken it toll on other circuitry in the circuits of the leds. This is usually the power supply circuit for the leds. This will require the replacing the defective components, like transistors and ic's. This is usually best handled in the service centers. They will have all the service information and parts for the repairs. The customer support telephone number for Emerson is 1-800-898-9020 you can call them between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of you Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance.I hope this information has help you understand the reason for the problem with your Clock/Radio. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.

You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).

I just did it, I took the filter out and then I cleaned it. After that all I did was reset the lamp and filter times which were at 160 for me, and now it works just fine. if the bulb goes out then maybe its time for a new lamp =(

HC 1500 skewed image issue

Hi there

I've worked on a few Mitsubishi's in my lifetime and one of their most common problems is the DMD Board that goes faulty and this makes the image go all pear shaped.

If you've only had the unit for 3 months now it should still be under warranty and the warranty covers these kind of repairs.

Hope this helps you !
