Question about Mitsubishi HC900U Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Projector turns off after about 30 minutes. What's wrong?

Can someone give me any ideas as to what might be wrong? I can use the projector for about 30 minutes, then the lamp cuts off. The power light is red and the status light flashes green. Do I need a new lamp or what? Thanks.

Your projector status means the protection circuit is working or the lamp is in an abnormal condition.
--wait until status indicator goes out and press power button.
---if the above solution is not working change the lamp.

Sharp pgm20x switches off immeately after switching on

It turns out that i fixed this issue, I opened up my projector and took a look at the board to make sure that there is nothing wrong. It turns out that the projector needed a good cleaning. Just use caned air to clean out the projector make sure that all the vents are clear and not blocked. (note: do not spray the caned air while the bulb is hot, if you do this the bulb can cause the pressurized air to temporary flame up, Please make sure the projector has had at least 30 minutes to cool off) While the board is off press the power button and the projector should power up. Replace the covering, and this projector will work.

Check to be sure the safety switch at the filter is not being tripped when the case and or the filter surround gets hot and expands. Thats what mine did.
