Question about Acer PD100 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Our projection screen turns off after 10 minutes. even if we turn it off and on again it will turn off again. the fan comes on only when we turn off the tv when it powers down. They said it was repaired at the acer factory. They replaced something on the board. It still did it. Then they replaced the fan. Now the fan doesn't come on at all or we can't here it like before. Also the turn off button doesn't work now to power down the unit and cool the lamp. We had to unplug it. Is it possible we can fix this ourselves? i have spent over $400 dollars and it is worse.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5050 won't power on

If anyone is still having symptoms, I have the reason behind the problem. Acer uses a power input jack made of mostly plastic with a sheath of aluminum around it. This sheath has 2 main functions first is to solder it in place on the board, the second is to provide grounding. This very delicate little box made of mostly plastic has a little center node that is broken off if the laptop is drop hard enough, usually 2 feet or more. This center node provides one side of the polarity of electricity in order to power on the laptop. Upon breakage it slips back into the laptop never to interface with the powercord again, thus no charging. I would suggest everyone to look in the hole of their power input jack and you will probably see yellow plastic surrounding a silver post that is dangling in a weird fashion.

SOURCE: Acer PD100 overheating

I have an acer PD100, and i am having the same problem. But what I discovered is that the projector only overheats when you connect a video source to it. It will run for an hour, but as soon as i connect a source, within less then 2min the unit will display the overheating warning and then shutdown. The crazy thing is this is my second PD100 to do this. the first one i had did this after owning it for only about 3 months. Acer replaced it finally after sending it in to be repaired 3 times. Now the new has started doing the same thing about 4 months after i got it. (Has less the 150 hours on it) This really disapoints me in Acer, because I have been using Acer Aspire products for years. If anyone has any idea how to repair please post a comment. It is really disapointing paying $860.00 for a projector that doesn't work.

Sony rear projection kp-577hw40, screen turns red after being on for 10 minutes

This model and some others had bad picture tubes that are no longer available---there is an option here.

If screen gets bright red, green, or blue set will shut down as it detects too much current being drawn.

Seen over 100 with this issue--what can be tried and usually will help is a physical adjustment inside the set.

No parts to replace and takes about 15 minutes to do.

I can tell you how if you want to know.

The lamp may be starting to go, the symptoms you describe are classic warning signs. You could unplug tv let it cool down and check lamp most likely the glass will not look clear maybe a little milky or smoky in areas..dead give away.

According to Sharp it is a software problem. Engineer came, installed software update ,10 minute job.....TV worked fine for 1/2 day unfortunately: Then images turned black and white in all channels TV turned itself off, and stanby and OPC buttons started flashing. When TV came back on its own 10 mins later , screen had 2 large square staines superimposed in image (as if it was a burnt screen)...Engineer will be back next week...all quite sad really for a new TV.....will keep u posted

Toshiba 46In HD Rear projection TV Vertical lines on screen

We also have vertical lines with our JVC 62"... turning it off and letting it cool down is the only solution. For us, we know it's a problem with heat. We simply are wits end on fixing it. added two additional fans, a exterior fan to blow heat away from the back of the tv, pulled everything else away, etc.... Anyway, goodluck.
