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

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.

I have an old Apollo Quantum 2521 Overhead Projector. The lamp is working, but it is creating a rainbow effect on the screen. Can you provide some help? Thankyou.

RBE or the RainBow Effect is a common phenomenon experienced by most projectors - generally worsens over time because of slower moving parts inside projector - by the sound of it the color wheel inside your projector could well be slowing down but this effect is quite common and in some people more than others...
