Question about Dell 3400MP Multimedia Projector
Projector bulb went out and was replaced. Started it back up and it shut off after 15 minutes with the "TEMP" light blinking orange. According to the Dell manual, this is attributed to a defective fan. Fan was replaced. Now, it will turn on for a short period of time in which the bulb lights up and the fan spins, but the temp light still blinks and it will turn itself off after a minute or so. Any ideas?

If both lights are flashing orange, that means that the bulb needs to be replaced and the filter needs to be cleaned. Make sure you reset the counters for both after you replace them.

This is what your projector's user manual says about a flashing "TEMP" light :
"The cooling fan is not operating. Turn the power OFF and wait approximately 20 minutes. After the main unit has cooled down, please make confirmation that no foreign matter has become caught in the fan, etc. After performing any needed maintenance, turn the power ON again; if the same display is displayed, then please contact a sales store or a service company."

I had the same problem and fixed it today. The fan is 70 x 70 x 20mm. I could not find the exact one, but 70 x 70 x 15 works just fine and I was able to find that fan at a Micro Center store for $8.99. The fans should be blowing air out from the front of the machine, not blowing in on the lamp.

overheated. clean it out with canned air. try again. if it still has an issue, you may have a main board problem.

clean out the projector with canned air. dust keeps in the heat the projector is trying to expell. once it's blown out, check the fans to make sure they are spinning.

This is a very common problem with these projectors. The fans lock up and the units are out of warrenty. The fan you replace it with must be the exact same as the old one, even though it is the same as a 5$ computer fan. The processor will detect the non-dell fan and shutdown in the same way.I Havent been able to find any replacement fans that will work. I may be interested in buying your broken projector from you if you give up.
