Question about Canon LV-S4 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Smoking Canon Projector and Dim picture

I called Canon and they are very concerned about their projectors smoking. I have had it for only about 2 1\2 years and is still under warranty. It started smoking while watching a movie and it smelled bad. I checked all the screens that filter the air coming into the projector and they were still good. I checked the bulb and it appeared fine, but Im not an expert. They are going to have a customer relations person call me tomorrow, hopefully they will fix or replace at no cost.

Is there suppose to be a fan that blows while it is running? Most projectors have a blower otherwise the bulb overheats. If the fan runs do you have something like a book or something that is blocking it?

SOURCE: Projector does not turn ON

try removing the lamp, usually quite easy, you need to find the door for the lamp. lamps are customer replaceable, usually. If the lamp is bad you can usually see it damaged in the lamp. kind of like you might be able to see the broken filament in your normale house hold light bulb. good luck.

SOURCE: canon lv5210 projector

This link allows you to download the manual. if you need it; http://www.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/projector/lv7215_7210_5210_manual.pdf page 41 especially worth a look page 43 gives all details for lamp replacement if you still think is the problem. Almost certainly the problem is to do with overheating - which is either a bulb problem or a malfunctioning fan. See if the fan runs when you turn it on and check it is clear. Hope this helps :)

Sony Projector VPL-CW255 is showing yellowish tint on screen. I have put in new bulb, changed filter, new cord and still yellow? Any idea what else to do?


Wire ages no matter how many times it's used. You may want to check the amount of nicotine that may be on the lens if there is smoking allowed in the room too. It will add a yellow to orange tint as well.

Picture went dim, new bulb installed still dim.


before installation of a new lamp your projector need a service due to dust your LCDs and analysis block not pass on the light properly and now you get a multi color background and very dim image.
so you service your projector to a technical person
