Quantum Apollo 16000 Portable Projector

My brand new overhead works great for 10 to 12 minutes and then the light goes off. The fan will continue to run and after about 8 minutes the light will come back on...frustrating when you have captivated bunch of middle school students and then the presentation is dead in the water. Any ideas? Jim

Re: Quantum Apollo 16000 Portable Projector

It sounds as though the unit is overheating. That would explain why the fan keeps running, and once it cools down enough it starts up again. What kind of environment are you running this in? Is there a way to put it in a cooler environment? Even having an external fan blowing on the unit could help. Honestly, unless you've got it in a very hot environment, it also sounds like a poor design for heat dissipation. Or possibly the heat sensor is bad, and shutting it down at a lower temperature than it should.

A couple of things...

If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.

Check the items above and let us know your progress.

My CP-RS55 Projector Doesn't Work??? No Light?

Hi there

If the unit is brand new , they should replace it under warranty.

This is most probably a faulty Powersupply / Fanboard !

Projector shuts down after only a few minutes.

I'm having the same problem. My Model is PB8253. Projector started, then afer a couple minutes it goes off with the red lamp led flashing.
Just replaced the lamp, but the problem persists. Tried to remove all connecting cables, except for the power, but still the same problem.
Anyone with similar problem or solution, please contact me at

Please clean the filters for the air and the air circulation path for cooling the lamp.

This will definitely work, pls also check that the condition of lamp is okay or not as sometimes lamp goes with the ballast unit of the lamp and that damages the new lamp.
