Re: random dots and no picture

Okay, I had the same problem exactly.

You can't fix it yourself. I took it to the NEC lab and they changed a card. luckily it was covered by the warranty.

Acer projector blue light blinks and fan blows and no picture

As far as I can tell this looks like a lamp problem. Unless some of the fans are not able to cycle up tehn it would shut down before it overheats

My Hitachi CP-X275 Multimedia Projector will run then shutdown by itself and not show a picture.

Normally when a unit like this shuts down, there are indicators that will show why. Are any of the lights on or blinking when this happens? The most common cause is overheating. Is the lamp indicator RED or the temp indicator? A little more detail would be helpful here. Can you also indicate how long the unit runs before shutting down?

My Sharp XR-11XC Projector died not long ago with very few hours of use. The unit will not power up nor does it show any signs of trying to. No LED lights, no fans - nada. I tested the fuse and it's...

I opened mine up hit the red reset in the front and now all good. If ur red light is blinking make sure ur lamp compartment is shut properly, if not the red light will blink and unit won't turn on.

LAMP not switching on NEC HT410

I had the exact same problem and solved it. After calling NEC tech and getting no help, my son and I decided to:

  • Remove, clean and reset lamp.
  • Completely clean (with compressed air) system.

And it worked. Here's what we did.

  • Removed lamp and cleaned with compressed air (in cans).
  • Used two cans of air to completely remove all internal dust. In our case long over due.
  • Reinstalled lamp and reset meter. (To reset: Turn on machine, wait 2 minutes or so, then hold down the "Help" button right next to the infrared sensor on the front of the machine).

Works fine now! Dont know if it was technical solution but solved it for us! Good Luck!

Infocus LP820 - Turns on for 30sec then shuts down

This could be one of two problems I have seen with another model Infocus projector (they are very good projectors though)

The first is the video input. Make sure it is attached correctly at both ends of the cable.
The second, remove the dust covers and blow them out. The problem can arrise if the temperature sensor detects the air inside the unit is getting too hot. If you can see the sensor when the dust covers are off (it will look like a little lump of goo on the end of a wire) then just give it a wipe as well. If dust settles on those it can cause incorrect temps to be reported.

Hope that solves your poblem =)

Compaq MP2800 Lamp powers down after a few seconds

Hi Wayne

It is normal for the lamp's fan to start running , but should actually happen within 15 seconds of starting up. Try changing the lamp's fan and if the problem still persists then you will have to replace the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )
