Question about Acer PD100 Multimedia Projector
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.

get a bottle of canned air. blow out unit. take bulb out and clean everywhere every time you change bulb. let it sit for a while so it warms back up prior to plugging back in.the air gets cold

sounds like it, unplug the projector remove the lamp put the covers back afterwards and plug it in and switch on. If the electric in the building goes off without the lamp then your projector has a electrical fault that needs sorting. If the electric stays on then the lamp has blown causing a dead short causing fault conditions which will trip the main fuse if it is rcd or rcbo.

This probably the fan is not cooling down the temperature of the high intensity bulb. Due to overheating the bulb will shutdown. Get a correct specification fan to replace the aging fan.
