This link allows you to download the manual. if you need it; page 41 especially worth a look page 43 gives all details for lamp replacement if you still think is the problem. Almost certainly the problem is to do with overheating - which is either a bulb problem or a malfunctioning fan. See if the fan runs when you turn it on and check it is clear. Hope this helps :)

Lamp will not stay on more that a minute or so. Why? All of the fans are working and none of the vents are clogged but it is like a thermal switch shuts the lamp off.

if the projector is overheating, it will shut down. blow out the projector with canned air. the dust keeps in the heat that the fans are trying to expell. if it has shut down from heat to often, you'll need to replace the thermosensor. if you are not sure it's temp related, check the lamp for bulges and black spots. replace lamp if necessary.

Hi Tara

This normally indicates that the lamp will need replacement.

The Ibook and this Projector are compatible as long as you run a Microsoft operating system i.e. Windows 98' and higher.

When replacing the lamp , you can just as well clean out the Projector - this is quite important as it prolongs the life of your lamp.

Green light flashing and then shuts down

Hi Gary

Have you resetted the lamp timer ? It must be done when a new lamp is inserted into the unit.

You can reset the lamp timer by holding the up arrow key on the Projector in until a online message appears. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.

If the problem persists , you will have to replace the Ballast wich is the lamp's power supply.
