Question about Optoma H56 Multimedia Projector
I have a Maxx Maverick projector which is a rebadged Optoma H56. The projector is turning off after start up. The projector starts up fine and runs for about 2min then shuts down.
I tried it a few more times and it shut downs after 30sec now.
The projector is roof mounted and has been in use for 3yrs.
thanks for the answers
It's not a short, the blub is near the end of it's life ~ the optoma is designed to detect when the blub is about to blow and shuts itself down. Turning the projector upside down or right side up usually only gives you a brief reprieve (some have reported a modest amount of extra time gained) on the blub ~ but in the end it's on it's way out and the projector will shut down again.

You have a blown bulb. I have the same projector and it had the same problem. The bulb is blown replace it and you should be fine.
If you are not sure of my solution you need to know that your projector will look like it is starting up and the bulb will partially light up but never come up to full brightness, then the projector will shut down. This will happen over and over until it just gets to the point it just turns on (the fan comes on and then about 30 - 60 seconds later the fan turns off.
Replace the bulb and you should be fine.
Been there done that!

I had this problem as well a year ago, but the solution was in reverse. I mounted it on the ceiling to "solve" the problem. But, no matter what I did, it would not run on desktop. Now I am experiencing the same problem from the ceiling mount position, and it still does not work on desktop. So it looks like I will have to take it to a repair shop to test for this mysterious short.

I had this problem too. I googled for similar problems and found a solution that worked for me. My projector is ceiling mounted upside down. When I turned the projector over so that it was right side up and started it, it worked fine. I ran it this way for about 1/2 hour then reinstalled it upside down. Problem solved. I suspect there is a short somewhere that only occurs when the projector is upside down. I had tried everything else first, i.e. reinstalling the bulb, cleaning with air etc.
