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.

JVC DLA-RS1U Projector turns off

I have a similar problem. JVC Project (DLA-RS1) shuts off after about 30 min to 1 hour of use. Everything turns off - bulb, fan, even the little light on the projector near the buttons. After 10-15 min the red light comes back on and you can start the projector.

I have seen this happen when I had installed a knock-off bulb. I believe the bulb runs a little hotter and the projector over heats. Now I am seeing it happen even with a JVC bulb.

I am in the process of taking the cover off the projector to see if anything is blocking the air flow (like a piece of broken bulb, which did break a while back). If a problem doesn't show up there I am going to check the fan to see if it is turning at full speed (maybe replace with a beefier fan?).

Does anyone have instruction on dis-assembly?

If this occurs, the projector does not turn back on. To replace the lamp, see on page 38.

Light of projector is not working

Try to turn off your projector and open it again after 10 minutes. The lamp may be malfunctioning due to overheat. This usually happens when your projector was not turned off properly. The fans inside the projector should slowly cool the lamp inside when turning it off properly causing the projector to be in a standby mode for a couple of minutes before you can completely unplug it.

My projector turned off in the middle of watching a movie. One of the indicator LEDs which gives coded blinking for different problems with the projector says there is a problem with the lamp temperature....

check the fan one more time . may be its speed is low. if it not rotate at the correct rpm, the lamp will get over heated. check the fan if available replace it and try again.

I stored my TV for 2 years and when I went to turn it on the green power light came on for 10 seconds then turned back off. That's all the TV does now. The screen is blank and the TV does not come on.

Try this:
1- Unplug power for 10 minutes.
2- Plug in and turn on again.
if it doesn't turn on then The power supply is bad. Usually the power supply unit can be replaced, but you have to open the case to see how it looks like before order the same one.
