    Ours eats it about 30-40 minutes into a movie. Ruins Friday nights regularly. Hate it. When we turn it back on, it lasts about 10-12 minutes. Very infuriating.

It stays on for 15 or 20 mins then light goes out but sound still plays with light out,then 4mins later it comes back on


Sounds likely that the projector is overheating. Try removing and carefully cleaning the filters over the air inlets. Carefully washing them in warm water and squeezing dry is usually satisfactory, but DO NOT replace in the projector and turn on until the filters have had at least 10 - 12 hours to thoroughly dry out.

Pt-ax200u projector turns off after 1 min of operation. the light turns red then green. After that, the power button does not respond and i have to cycle off the project. If I turn it on, it does the same...


your projector is detecting it is overheating, check that nothing is blocking the vents and that the fans are not clogged. If the vents and fans are dirty clean thema paintbrush and hoover. If they arent then the lamp maybe the culprit

When i first turn it on the message (projector over heated will automatically shut off lamp) comes up and then shuts off after 2 mins


You have an overheating problem.To solve it

1) Ensure that there are clear air pathways around the projector

2) Clean the air filters.

3) Ensure that the fans are running. If the fans don't run the projector won't fire it.

It is likely that cleaning the filters will solve your porblem.

New bulb, fan working, after 10 mins of operation get posterized image; suspect overheating; dust has been cleaned out; has not been taken apart


Hi!
Is the projector placed in a box or an area where it could generate overheating? Is this projector still within warranty?
Please feel free to update me. Cheers!

My Epson EMP-TW20 projector has consistantly started cutting out 20 mins after being turned on, it then switches to stand by and I think the fans go on for about 5 mins. However, if I switch it straight...


clean it out with canned air. the dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. you may need to replace the temp sensor, as the constant heat may have weakened the sensor.

Infocus IN1 Gaming Projector


Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius. 

The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.

Projector overheating and turns off after 20 mins


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.
