Question about Sony VPL-VW100 (Ruby) Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Sony PRojector VPL-VW100 runs for a minute, shuts off with blinking yellow light, manual says this is due to fan failure

Sony says to ship it 500 miles away and they will give me a repair quote. I would rather get the fan and replace myself. PN Airflex SFF21C PY51C. I can't figure out how to remove these fans.

    The problem with you replacing the fan is that you must get an original Sony fan, because the fans that Sony uses have rotation sensors that detect if the fan is spinning or not. If you just put a regular fan in there, the TV will not come on.

To reset the lamp timer:
1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual).
2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER.
3) Timer should now read '0'.

I have sony vpl ex7 and the power button keeps on blinking?


If it blinks with 2 flashes, it's overheated. Check the filter unit.
If it blinks with 4 flashes, a fan is not working properly. see if any fan is not turning on, and check why.
If it blinks with 6 flashes, it's a system internal failure.
