Question about Acer PD120D Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Acer PD120D Projector powering off after only 3mins.

My projector just shuts down after about three minutes. The cooling fan seems to be running fine when it's on. The brightness of the bulb doesn't appear to have changed or dimmed. It takes about an hour of sitting before I can power it up again. I have no idea how many hours may be on the lamp, but I can't imagine it is over 200.

There is a chance that it is fuse protected inside.
When a filament-equipped lamp fails, it can create a momentary surge; you've probably seen this when a standard tungsten bulb flashes very bright in the process of dying completely.

SOURCE: proector image is dim

I have changed the bulb on my LG projector recently. I found the rotating colour wheel to be full of dust. Upon opening the cavity where the light is redirected and reflected onto the imager, I saw all mirrors also had a layer of dust. I don't think it was so dirty that it affected the brightness of the image, but I cleaned it anyway using an earbud. I cleaned both sides of the color wheel as well. You need to be careful in working with the optics of the projector!

this is our chat session, please rate it inappropriate it will spoil my rating.

vsurg: thanks

cmptrlink: welcome
vsurg: I purchased the bulb through electrified.com. OEM replacement for $249. Is there a difference between bulbs?
Read more cmptrlink: yeah the lamp should be purchased after proper specifing the device model, or the recommended lamp specified by the vendor

cmptrlink: hang on i will tell you the correct lamp number
vsurg: Manual says LMP-H130.
cmptrlink: is that the same one you got?
vsurg: Yes
cmptrlink: why dont you consult to a authorized sony service center.
cmptrlink: the lamp no. LMP-H130. is correct. but there must be some problem with the lamp or projector! is the lamp was packed when you got it?
cmptrlink: the projector normaly comes with 3 year warrenty
cmptrlink: 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
cmptrlink: is not clear in manual). 2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER. 3) Timer should now read '0'.

A flashing red light came on my acer projector pd120d but it did not stay on it displayed the power, temp and lamp


Projector bulbs generate alot of heat. Make sure the vents are not blocked or dirty. Check the fan to make sure it is operating properly. Hope this helps.

Projector will not power off or display a picture


You have to double tap the power key to shut it down. The screen should go dark right away but the cooling fan will run for another 1-5 minutes.

Projector shuts down after a couple of minutes with lamp and temp lights flashin, is this a fan poblem and can i replace the fan?


This probably the fan is not cooling down the temperature of the high intensity bulb. Due to overheating the bulb will shutdown. Get a correct specification fan to replace the aging fan.

My projector will run for a time between 20 minutes and 2 hours and then it shuts down. It will start right back up (takes 3-5 minutes for it to cool and then restart) after that. What could be wrong?


It could be overheating. Can you hear a fan running? Does the projector feel hot to the touch?
Try putting a small house fan on it to cool it and see if that helps.

Infocus in26 fan runs continually


Hello,
The fan does run continuously on this projector however it should be running very very slow when the projector has completed it's lamp cool down routine.
The reason for this is that a portion of the switching power supply remains energized (running) when the projector is at rest. But as I mentioned it should run very slow in this state. If it remains running full blast then most likely the fan speed control chip is shorted which can cause fail 2 ways, either the fan 1. runs full
speed or 2. remains stalled (then the projector will go over-temp and shut itself down) I hope this answers you question.

Cheers

Projector shuts off after about 45 minutes


Just a long shot, but...

I have an epson 9000i that did the same thing. Turns out that unit has a small fan (I think 60mm) right next to the power supply to keep it cool, in addition to the large fan that exhausts past the lamp. The fan runs non-stop as long as the unit is powered-up for two reasons I can think of - keep the power supply a little cooler, and the lamp a little warmer so there's not such a temp difference when it powers-up. Long story short, that fan had died. I replaced it with an aftermarket 60mm fan and it's been working fine ever since. Hope this helps.
