Projector shuts down when plugged in

I can't use the projector when it is connected to power cord. The image blinks and after about ten seconds the projector shuts itself off. It does work fine with battery only.

ALSO CHECK YOUR FAN. IF THE FAN OR A HEAT SINK IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY (I.E. THE FAN MAY JUST NEED TO BE CLEANED OR REPLACED, THERE SHOULD BE A SMALL HEAT SINK. IF CLOUDED W/DUST, IT WILL KEEP THE OPERATION SHORT). ALSO CHECK IF YOU HAVE SET ANY TEMPERATURE SHUTDOWN PARAMETERS. IF YOUR LAMP HEATS UP FOR SO LONG AND REACHES A TEMPERATURE THAT WILL AFFECT THE CIRCUITS, THIS OF COURSE WILL SHUT DOWN YOUR UNIT UNEXPECTEDLY. HOPE THIS HELPS...JGUAM

Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.

SOURCE: HD 70 DLP Projector problem

Hi, My name is Doug Stanko.
I had the same issue and fixed the problem.
All you have to do is take a few screws out..... and blow out the inside VERY well with pressurized air. I have a compressor... and I set the regulator to 50 psi. But the KEY IS TO have the covers off so you can get between the circuit cards and blow them out. They were incredibly dusty. Even after I blew through the side vents.
I agree with all of you that say it is overheating. You are right. There was so much dust on the fan blades them selves... I'm suprised they were still spinning at all.
And like most of you... first I bought the $300 dollar bulb... put it in and 10 minutes later it was doing the same thing flashing through the colors. So trust me.
There are 4 screws on the back. Take these out.
There are 2 small nuts on the back around the VGA input. Take these out.
There are about 5 screws on the underside (think one was on the bulb changeout portion). These have long copper colored bars that go all the way from top to bottom.
All these have to be removed. Then you can take it apart. AND I PROMISE YOU WILL SEE TONS OF DUST ALL OVER.
Make sure you blow out the parts between the circiut boards AND the fan unit.
Put it back together... and remember to make sure that little latch on the bulb change cover makes the click sound ( it is a switch that must close or the unit will not power back up )..... and it will work great again.
No need for a huge fan next to it. Although I will admit that is an excellent idea.
I did this 3 weeks ago and have been watching it with no issues.
If you do not feel comfortable taking the screws out yourself..... I would take it to your local TV repair store and just ask them to take the covers off and blow out all the dust... and give it back to you. No troubleshooting... no repairs... no replacements... just blow it out.
I was an electronic technician in the US Navy for 10 years... Now I work at a nuclear power plant in Illinois. BUT I PROMISE with a good phillips head screw driver and a small crescent wrench you can do this yourself.
Good luck and you are welcome. I know how frustrating this issue is. But this is the fix.
Doug

SOURCE: Optoma H56 - turns off just after start up.

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.

Shut down after 30 seconds


Many projectors shut down if they cannot find anything attached to them.
Make sure you have a computer attached and sending an image out to it before you hit the projector reset button again.
It's a bit like the chicken and the egg since some laptops won't send an image out the cable unless it senses a projector, and the projector shuts down if it does not detect an incoming signal fast enough.

I believe that's an overheat problem. Check the fan if it's cooling properly. Make sure the unit is in a cool temp room.

Dell 1209S Projector, tries to turn on, and the fan comes on for 30 seconds and then goes off again. It tries this several times and then the light bulb icon comes off and it doesn't do antything else


Lamp is burned out or makes a popping sound.
When the lamp reaches its end of life, it may burn out and may make a loud popping sound.
If this occurs, the projector does not turn back on. To replace the lamp, see on page 38.
LAMP light is solid amber If the LAMP light is solid amber, replace the lamp.
LAMP light is blinking amber If the LAMP light and the Power light are blinking amber, the lamp driver has failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
If the LAMP light is blinking amber and Power light is solid blue, the color wheel has

EIKI XB23 PROJECTOR WON'T GO ON


Do you hear the fan start up? or does the projector lamp come on (you start to see an image)?

If yes to either:

When the temperature inside the projector reaches a
certain level, the projector will be automatically shut down
to protect the inside of the projector. The POWER indicator
is blinking while the projector is being cooled down. When
the projector has cooled down sufficiently (to its normal
operating temperature), it can be turned on again by
pressing the POWER ON-OFF button.

Note:
After the temperature inside the projector returns to normal, the
WARNING indicator still continues to blink. When the projector is
turned on again, the WARNING indicator stops blinking.

Then check the matters below:
– Did you provide appropriate space for the projector to be
ventilated? Check the installing condition to see if
ventilation slots are not blocked.
– Is the projector not installed near the ventilation duct of
air-conditioning equipment which may be hot? Install the
projector away from the ventilation duct of airconditioning
equipment.
– Are the air filters clean? Clean the air filters periodically. Let me know if you need to know how to do this.

If no to either:

When the projector detects an abnormal condition, it is
automatically shut down to protect the inside and the
WARNING indicator will be red. In this case, disconnect the
AC power cord and reconnect it, and then turn the projector
on once again for check. If the projector cannot be turned
on and the WARNING indicator emits a red light, disconnect
the AC power cord and contact the service station for check
and repair.

Please let me know if this helped solve the problem. If not, is there anything else you observed - whether or not you believe it's relevant.

Infocus x1a projector shuts down after 30 seconds - dust problem ??


do you have the correct lamp? the x1a takes an sp-lamp-009, that has 2 white wires, and not the more common sp-lamp-018 which looks exactly the same except has one white and one red wire (and are in different plug positions). if it still doesn't light, there is another issue (possibly the colorwheel) along with the lamp timer reset.

Optoma EP716 turns on but no picture displays


Don't ever just unplug the power cord while it is on. The bulb needs to cool down with the fan still on.
Did you ever connect a source?
