Question about Acer PD100 Multimedia Projector
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.
