Runco Cl 610 keeps shutting down

    Our original bulb on our CL610 only lasted 800 hours. We replaced the bulb, then a few months later (4 months out of the 2 year warranty) the projector completely quit. It has been at Runco for the past 2 months and they want to charge us $1,250 to fix it. We have heard this is a common defect but Runco refuses to cover it. "Runco - the world's WORST home theater products." We paid $7,000 for this piece of ****, and it lasted 2 years and 4 months.

    I also have a shut down problem. It was a fan problem. Runco replaced under warranty 8 months ago, but the problem has now returned.

On the cl-610 it would shut down after about 5 minutes of running..as well as having to replace the customers bulb. so I took a look at the cooling system there are two fans which work fine, but there is a type of vent inside attached to the body of the projector it seems to have some back pressure if my words are right causing the fans to return the heated air back into the projector forcing the fast shutdown and lessening the life of the bulb. so as a test I removed the directional vent and I blew into it and most of the air came back rather that went out so I left it out and the projector has been running flawless for the last two days. might be time for a redesign on that directional vent cover. but check it for yourself first. if this has helpped please let me know.

The lamp does not attempt to turn on anymore on my Runco VX-1C projector. Power to the projector is good but lamp does not turn on.


I was about to chime in that you should reset the lamp hours after inserting the new bulb ... until I read that you couldn't see the menu because the bulb still doesn't turn on. Hmmm...

Have you checked all of the filters to ensure they're free of dust build-up? I'm wondering if it overheated which caused the fault.

Due to the fact that this model is out-of-production your options have become limited. I recommend at this point you give them a call:

Runco cl-610 projector


Likely the fan blades are dirty and out of balance. If this projector is in a dusty or smoky place you will need to clean them (or have them cleaned by a tech) often. If you are not good with electronics, I suggest taking it to a dealer. If you can get the covers off properly, you will need use a can of compressed air to carefully blow out the projector and fan blades.

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.

My Runco CL-410 projector runs for about 30-45 seconds, then the lamp turns off. The hour meter says it has 471 hours on it. Any ideas?


Look inside the lamp. If you look into it if you see any white build up at its base, replace it. Need help, let me know.

Projector problem


I have a great deal of experience with that projector in particular. 
The burning smell along with the circle on the screen can be one of two thing in the same general area. Both are not good.
The lamp assembly has its own dedicated cooling fans. these fans can sometimes **** in dust and insects. the lamp runs at a very high temperature and can burn those things quickly. I have often found old lamps with particles fused to the glass.
The other situation is that the lamp burned something and it got stuck to the glass somewhere in the light path. 
if I remember right the projector monitors the temprature of the bulb and will shutdown if it gets too hot.
Runco is based in california and has a great turn around time on projectors. Unfortunately with Runco you would be hard pressed to find a technician that wouldn't just send it to them for repairs anyways. The major down side with Runco is that customers cannot talk directly to engineers or service men. 
Locate a Runco authorized retailer in your area, check runcoes site. and give them a call to see if they cant send it to runco for you. if you cannot find one in your area call Roscor or Blair & Associates in Chicago.
