Re: Error "Fan Stopped"

Yes. it needs the third wire to sense the fan speed. without it, the projector assumes that the fan is not running.

How to fix my fan fail error on my Acer X1161P projector? I have tested the fans and it seems like if it is a system problem, when it starts cooling down after the error they both start spinning...

Fans have 3 wires, power (red), ground (black) and third is RPM. If the fans internal RPM sensor isn't providing the speed reading to the electronics it thinks the fan stopped initiating an error shutdown process. You could possibly try an outboarded fan with the same wiring and voltage to see if that makes any change but if replacing the fan with an OEM fan doesn't fix it, then you have a board issue or wiring failure if the fan doesn't plug directly into the board.

Make sure you check every fan in the unit.

Projector screen displaying "Searching" message. Does not recognize computer. Worked with one of your associates (Guru?) and we tried a number of solutions but none worked. She asked that I come back to...

If you are connecting to a laptop then you may need to hold the function button down and press F1, F2, F3 etc. there should be a sign with the latop on there and a sign with an external device (monitor,PROJECOR)
hope this information was useful to you.

I just replaced a power supply, it has one fan instead of 2. Works great but now I get an error message saying it can't find the fan (which I'm no longer using), how do I get rid of the message?

replace the fan. it needs all the fans the projector was designed with to properly cool it down. without all the fans, the lamp will overheat and cause premature lamp and projector failure. the fan has 3 wires- ground, power and sensor. if the fan spins too slow or not at all, the projector will shut down to prevent damage.

so, replace the fan.

Fan stopped

Its internal circuitry might be telling it to not run--a remnant request during the last cool down. Hopefully it is the fan itself. Try the master reset command. If you do not get an image before its shuts off, look in your owner's manual, count the way you manipulate the menu buttons to get to the reset, and try it between the moment you first turn it on, and it shuts off. Unfortunately some units will not let you input commands untill it is 'up to speed'. My Eiki is like this--nothing untill it is fully bright. Depending on your 'exploration' desire, short of going to a repair place, or buying a new one, you might try seeing if your unit is dirty, see if you have power to the fan (voltage meter--maybe 5-7 volts), or something is jammed in there. Depending on its age, the fan just might be dead, Jon.

NEC VT47 Blink Sequence but not comming up.

If it is a lamp error try this:
When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.
For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]

Lamp will not strike error message

this can sometimes indicate either an overheating issue, a lamp service life problem, or that the cover to the lamp housing has not been secured properly.
