Loud Bang and Projector no londger works

I turned on the power on to theProjector and there was a very loud bang and now the projector is no longer accepting power. no standby light. I checked the plug that fine, so i think something has blown in the unit. The bulb looks ok. I didn't get as far as trying to power up the bulb before it blew.

I'm wondering whether it would be cheaper to get it repaired or just to buy a new unit

If the internal fuse has blown, if you connect the power lead loosely and move it about, you should not be able to hear any crackling sound of electricity. If you do then it is more likely something else other that the internal fuse. Generally, a loud bang is either the fuse or lamp.

Good luck and fill free to contact me for aditional help.

Hi there

Theloud bang you heard was probably just a fuse that blew and the fuse will probably cost you in the order of 50 cents.

This can be found at any TV repair shop or hardware shop and is located on the Main Powersupply Board ( the one that takes in the AC socket )

Before opening up the whole Projector to replace the fuse , just double check and take out the lamp and check for any damage. If you heard a bang the lamp would be shattered.

OUr Tv will not turn on. It also makes a loud bang when tring to turn it on.


DO NOT TURN ON THIS SET.
Take it to a qualified television technician or have a house call made to repair the problem.
The only things which can cause a loud bang from electronics are things you DO NOT want to mess with.
It is most likely a problem with the power supply.

Loud bang, unit stopped working


I have seen the caps in the power supply vent, which means they get hot and the top pops up and splits open, resulting in the "bang" sound. If you have experience in electronics then remove the back of the set and examine the power supply, looking for any caps whose tops are bowed upward, and replace.
