I have had the same problem. When I unplugged the projector and plugged it back in about 5 secs. later, it seemed to work. Odd, but true.

SOURCE: dell 1200MP works with PC but not the DVD player,

Hi.

If you have a replacement cable test the DVD using a different cable, you never know.

Try the following:

  • Unplug both projector and DVD from power.
  • Keep units connected together by video cable.
  • Connect back and restart the DVD first.
  • Restart the projector only once that DVD is ON.


If it still does not work , then there may be a fault.

SOURCE: problem with my dell 1200mp projector

This is a very common problem with these projectors. The fans lock up and the units are out of warrenty. The fan you replace it with must be the exact same as the old one, even though it is the same as a 5$ computer fan. The processor will detect the non-dell fan and shutdown in the same way. I Havent been able to find any replacement fans that will work. I may be interested in buying your broken projector from you if you give up.

Email me at: nalexandrov251[A-T]gmail.com and we might be abe to work something out.

Dell 1209S Projector, tries to turn on, and the fan comes on for 30 seconds and then goes off again. It tries this several times and then the light bulb icon comes off and it doesn't do antything else


Lamp is burned out or makes a popping sound.
When the lamp reaches its end of life, it may burn out and may make a loud popping sound.
If this occurs, the projector does not turn back on. To replace the lamp, see on page 38.
LAMP light is solid amber If the LAMP light is solid amber, replace the lamp.
LAMP light is blinking amber If the LAMP light and the Power light are blinking amber, the lamp driver has failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
If the LAMP light is blinking amber and Power light is solid blue, the color wheel has
failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
Unplug the power cord after 3minutes then turn the display on again. If this problem
persists, contact Dell™.

Changed bulb on the 1200mp and when i turned it back on the bulb came on showed the dell logo and then the temp light came on after this the projector went into stand-by mode. when i restart it does the...


Just went through this issue with a 1200MP. The cause of the failure was a failing optical speed sensor on the color wheel assembly. It overheats and produces an invalid signal shortly after startup, causing the projector to shut down. The good news is that this is a $2 part. The bad news is that I wouldn't really call this a "DIY" repair unless you have the ability to unsolder and replace tiny surface-mount electronic components. You will also have to do extensive disassembly just to get at the part, which is buried inside the optical system. I am a professional electronics tech, and removing/replacing the part took me about 2 hours on a fully-equipped workbench. Troubleshooting the unit to FIND the failed part (without any service manual or schematic) took another couple hours, FWIW.

If you want to give it a try, the part you need is a GP2S27 "photointerrupter" manufactured by Sharp. These were discontinued a year or so ago, but some distributors still have stock (get them while you can). I got mine from DigiKey. This is a tiny little part about the size of a match head, with 4 terminals that need to be soldered onto a small circuit board, after removing the old part. You will need a steady hand, a fine-pointed soldering iron, and a magnifier with plenty of light.

Good luck!

Make sure the cooling fan is working and air is reaching the light source, you can hear it running (low whirling noise) when you turn it on, if not that is the problem.

Hi jezzwhizz

You'll see that at the back of your Projector there is 2 VGA ports 1 in (normally blue) and 1 out ( normally grey ).

You are most probably using the grey one , switch it to blue.
