Question about Compaq Microportable 2810 Multimedia Projector
Quick Question oh mighty one, 2810 Compaq projector, manufactured 12/5/01. Overheating and turning off itself. Cant find a person to fix it in Ireland, surprised....not me!!!. Any quik solutions to the problem please.
I have a HP VP6111 projector that works fine on a table top but overheats ( overheating ) when turned upside down and hung from my ceiling. My solution...I went to Circuit City and bought two 80mm computer fans. I also purchased a 12V power supply from Radio Shack. I put one fan on front of my projector and the other on the back of the projector and wired them into the 12V power supply. I mounted both fans with velcro. The front fan pushes air and the rear fan pulls air. The projector now runs fine without shutting off. The fans are 12V and push 34 cubic feet per minute of air. I am very happy with this solution.

After lots of research on this, the problem appears to be with the bulb. Once the bulb gets 'tired' the filament becomes 'stranded' and the running temperature increases massively. The safety mechanism of the projector cuts in before serious damage occurs. Interestingly, using big external fans didn't solve the problem, but turning the projector upside down does (presumerly the heat sensor is at the top of the projector). Solution: Buy a new bulb, or for what bulbs cost, but a new projector!!
