Question about Dell 3300MP Multimedia Projector

Open Question

There is a fan problem and temperature light turns on

When powering on the projector, a warning (system fan failure) appears in the digital display. This is followed by the projector shutting down and the temperature light turning red. I am then unable to turn the power back on. Are there any common problems with the fan in the 3300MP? If not, is there an easy fix to replace the current fan in it?

Red power, blinking red temp


if the Lamp error and Temperature error lights are flashing red this means that there are two separate errors.

  • A flashing lamp light means the lamp failed to ignite. It could be a lamp driver problem or lamp failure. Replace the lamp to resolve the issue. If the issue is not resolved, then service the projector.
  • A flashing Temperature light signals a fan error. Turn the projector off and allow it to cool down. If the light is still flashing after the projector is turned back on, service the projector.

Power indicator /red/ and warning led/red/ are lighting after ea 15 sec. a lamp never start and fans goes in OFF mode. I checked power supply lines S5V,S-5V,S16V on the Main Board . I checked unit lamp...

If power indicator light red and warning indicator red flashing than according to user manual :-
The projector has been cooled down enough and the temperature returns to normal. When turning ON the projector the WARNING indicator stops flashing. CHECK AND CLEAN THE AIR FILTER.
Experience:- 1. if the temperature is very low than temperature sensor maybe misbehave.
2. If anyone fan not working
so please you check fans.
(If lamp or lamp ballast unit faulty than after a time period the lamp indicator light ON not a warning indicator. I experience many times if any fan in projector are broken or jamed the temperature light if present otherwise warning light ON or flashing)

If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself

My Infocus 4805 is just showing the INFOCUS logo and not showing the picture from the TV. all connections are correct but no

Powering On
  • If your InFocus 4805 projector is having a hard time powering on or doesn't power on at all, it could be one of two things. Due to the extreme temperature of the lamp that causes the temperature of the projector to rise, every InFocus 4805 projector has a cooling system. Check your projector's cooling solution, as it may need to be replaced. Also check the projector's fan---if the fan doesn't spin, the unit will not turn on. If the problem is the fan, you'll have to get it replaced. You can do this at the same place you bought your projector.
  • The Lamp
  • If your InFocus 4805 Projector powers on but does not project any light, the lamp will need to be replaced. All projector lamps must be replaced at some point---how often usually depends on how much use the device gets. Simply order a replacement lamp, unscrew the old one and screw the new one in. The projector will then work like new.
  • Color Wheel
  • If your InFocus 4805 projector powers on and is displaying images but the colors on the images appear warped or are not in the proper places, your "color wheel" will need to be replaced. The color wheel is a small device that essentially acts like a prism. Light is projected through it and it displays the appropriate colors on screen the way they appear in the original video source. Order a replacement color wheel that fits your model and use your instruction manual as a guide as you swap the old one out and put the new one in.

    Dell 3200MP projector. Lamp warning light comes on after approx 30 minutes of use and the lamp turns off. Bulb is new. I am not sure what the warning light is indicating.

    The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
    Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
    get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
    extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
    high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

    Do you hear the fan start up? or does the projector lamp come on (you start to see an image)?

    If yes to either:

    When the temperature inside the projector reaches a
    certain level, the projector will be automatically shut down
    to protect the inside of the projector. The POWER indicator
    is blinking while the projector is being cooled down. When
    the projector has cooled down sufficiently (to its normal
    operating temperature), it can be turned on again by
    pressing the POWER ON-OFF button.

    After the temperature inside the projector returns to normal, the
    WARNING indicator still continues to blink. When the projector is
    turned on again, the WARNING indicator stops blinking.

    Then check the matters below:
    – Did you provide appropriate space for the projector to be
    ventilated? Check the installing condition to see if
    ventilation slots are not blocked.
    – Is the projector not installed near the ventilation duct of
    air-conditioning equipment which may be hot? Install the
    projector away from the ventilation duct of airconditioning
    – Are the air filters clean? Clean the air filters periodically. Let me know if you need to know how to do this.

    If no to either:

    When the projector detects an abnormal condition, it is
    automatically shut down to protect the inside and the
    WARNING indicator will be red. In this case, disconnect the
    AC power cord and reconnect it, and then turn the projector
    on once again for check. If the projector cannot be turned
    on and the WARNING indicator emits a red light, disconnect
    the AC power cord and contact the service station for check
    and repair.

    Please let me know if this helped solve the problem. If not, is there anything else you observed - whether or not you believe it's relevant.
