Question about Sharp Notevision PG-M20X Multimedia Projector
Hi, my projector does this funny thing where it will run for several minutes without issue, but then after being on for roughly 7-10 minutes it shuts itself off and makes a strange clicking sound. during this the fans are still running and it almost sounds like the unit is losing power or perhaps power cycling. Any ideas?
Possibly it is overheating and saftey mode is starting automatically (Phillips/Panasonic)which will turn the overheated components off and leaving the fans on trying to cool the device whilst resetting the overload switch mechanisim (hence the clicking) Or possibly the power supply may be on its way out (this will happen between 3-7 Yrs dependant on use)and it is constantly trying to switch on the power supply until the power supply activates correctly. I would take this device to a quality repairer and request a bench test with a written diagnosis or report under the guise of wanting too know the condition of the device as u have just purchased it. If/when under bench test conditions the fault replicates itself your repairer will advise you of the problem parts and repair costs within the write up for the bench test or verbally at the time of pickup.
