My Proxima Ultralight DX2 shuts down after 5~10 minutes

I have a Proxima Ultralight DX2. My unit also shuts down after 5 to 10 minutes - green LED lamp blinks slowly. The intake & exhaust fans continue to run for about 1 minute. Changed lamp but still the same problem. To restart, I must turn off main switch then back on & the same thing happen again

The filters probably need cleaning. Also check and make sure none of the vents are being blocked.

SOURCE: lamp didn't strike

Hi,

lamps are affected by strikes. each strike erodes a part of the anode. so in essence, the lamp wears out. However a Xenon has a much longer hour life as once it is running, it cares "relatively" little about how long. SO for commercial units, this is an advantage. there are also larger potential issues about colour stability over life.

with UHP, they care only minimally about strikes, it really is not even a strike, so while frequent on and off can kill it early, with normal usage, you are going to be fine. However with a UHP, if a lamp runs for longer times... then you have issues. THe way i had it explained to me was as such;
With a UHP, it gets up to proper operating temp in about 5 mins. once it is there... it SLOOWWWLLLLLYYYYY continues to heat up. After about 2-3 hours, it starts going outside the nominal operating range. once it does so, it starts to degrade the lamp. thereby lowering life expectancy. if you shut it off after about two hours or so and let it cool for ten mins then do it again for two hours... you are in a much better place. In a grand scheme, apparently if you run the proj for an average of 4-6 hours every time, then expected lamp life goes to about 50%. THis is very rough and in a general sense so just take it as general guidelines.

TIPS TO EXTEND PROJECTOR LAMP LIFE:

Lamp life for a projector will vary based on many factors including application, installation, intake of cool air and exhaust of hot air, usage, and proper maintenance. Heat buildup can reduce lamp life and even damage your projector. Here are some tips to help your projector lamps last longer.


Once you turn on your projector, wait at least five minutes before turning it off to allow the fan to properly cool the unit. After the fan has cooled your projector, you may unplug it and store it as desired.

Do not obstruct the air intake or exhaust vent. Paper should not be placed on top of a projector, or where vents are located.
.
Keep the exhaust vent at least two feet from any object.


If the projector is built into a compartment, wall, ceiling or shelf mount, the minimum distance requirement (usually at least two feet) stated in your owners manual must be maintained.

Clean the projector's air intake filter every three to six months -- or more frequently -- based on your operating environment.

Do not move your projector until the lamp has cooled (about five minutes).

Run your projector for two weeks and/or 20 hours shortly after your purchase. If the lamp is going to fail, it will usually occur within the first ten hours of operation. Lamp warranties typically last just 90-180 days from the date of purchase, rather than the first installation.

When you purchase a replacement lamp for your projector, remove the existing lamp and use the old lamp as your spare. If your projector is new, test the original lamp for the two weeks/20 hours before removing and storing as a spare.

I hope the info. which i have given you solves ur problem if not i am sad to say you have to get it repaired..

Goodluck,

Hi,
It sounds like you should check the lamp to see if it has too many hours on it. The bulb should look pretty clear & round without bulging & dark spots or fogging. If it has a lot of hours it needs to be replaced. It may also be a fan that is not turning on or is not turning fast enough. Use canned air & while unplugged spray the fans to make them spin fast. You can use a flashlight to try & locate the fans behind the vented areas arount the case. If a fan is not working properly it will cause the unit to shut down. Also check your indicator lights on top & compare with the troubleshooting portion of the user guide. You can get a user guide download from google search.
Good luck,
Jim

I have a proxima s540 ultra lite data


From what you describe, it sounds like a fan isn't working. When you turn on a projector, it will go through a quick self test--checking that everything is operating correctly. Some of the fans send out a signal to the main board telling it that they are running. If no signal is received, the board senses this and auto-shut down occurs to protect the unit from heat damage. The errant fan could be spinning but the computer pulse might not be being generated. It will require a tech to find this out.

reset the settings to factory default. if that doesn't work, the lamp may not have enough power to stay on. if the lamp doesn't have many hours on it, it's the ballast.
