Question about Dell M210X DLP Projector

1 Answer

Black and white pixels in picture

My picture has multiple black and white dots that are increasing in number. The projector also shuts down very often and the fan kicks in. I suspect overheating. It is well ventilated and away from heat sources.

The DLP chip is failing. The only way to fix the "dots" is to replace the DMD (digital mirror device) chip. Overheating causes this starfield effect to occur. See youtube video for explaination.

Is there any possible way to repair a DMD chip with tiny white dots?


Anything is usually fixable. What you have to determine with Dell's assistance is if it is cost effective to do so.

When turning on the projector it shows the Optoma logo but will not boot to the home screen. Is there a way to reload the home screen software?


Depends on the model. If you saw a little fan, then there is a fan problem. There might be 3 fans. 2 square ones and one blower fan. Look for plugs with 3 wires(red/white/black or red/yellow/black). Those will lead to the fans from the mainboard. Occasionally the fan will spin but the tachometer lead will stop reporting the fan status and the projector shuts down. To being with I would clean out the projector fans and ducts thoroughly. That may clear up the issue. Otherwise there is a button press sequence to enable the service menu, but you cannot upload new firmware without special optoma software that isnt available. Another possibility is you have failing filter capacitors in the power supply. Be careful poking around under the hood. There is lethal high voltage possibly stored even when unplugged.

The DMD chip is failing on your projection device. The only way to fix it is to replace the chip. The dots are usually caused by excessive heat build up.

I am getting small white dots on the screen and they are increasing in number


sounds like pixel failure. The DMD chip needs replacing. Get a quote from the infocus agent to make the repair before you decide if it's worth it.

How do you clean the dust out of the projector, there are particles that look like small white stars on the black areas and black stars on the white areas. Is this dust?


If you focus the image on a screen up close to the projector and notice small rectangular black and white spots, then you have pixel failures.

My projector is showing multiple white dots, looks like lots of small stars all over the screen when projected to screens. is this mean I need to replace the lamp? TDP-XP1 model.


The link to the article explains the the cause of the white syndrome none of the previous internet experts have a correct solution.
