Re: projector

It's likely you have a badly clogged air filter which will greatly shorten the life of the lamp and projector. It MUST be kept clean! Your instruction maunual will show you where it is located. If this does not resolve it, you likely need a new lamp.

We were watching a show and the projector shut off. Does not seem to power on at all. Seemed hot to the touch. Have tried other plugs.

sounds like the power fuse may have blown, or electronic failure, overtemperature switch/fuse may have gone open circuit.
Are the air vents free of blockages etc.
Is the cover on the lamp and filter tight

Fuse problem or power supply.
If it's the lamp, you'll still get a standby light.
Check also the ventilation, that might caused it to shutdown.

When we turn on the projector to watch tv there purple spots what to do Thanks Sue

if this is an lcd projector, you can try blowing the area out where the lcd come out of the engine, if it is only dust particles you should see results, you may have to repeat the process to get it perfect, and use de-ionized air if available, this cuts down on static. Next, if that didn't work, your polarizers are probably burnt due to repeatedly shutting the projector down incorrectly. The unit is pretty much shot at this point. the cost of repairs likely will exceed what you paid for it.

Projector turns on the power light flashing and lamp light solid

Here's the fix: Take off the top cover of the projector. Unplug the wire leading from the two fans in the back of the unit to one of the circuit boards in front of you. Just trace one wire from fan to board. Unplug at board. Turn unit on and it will again turn on, show HP splash screen and then shut down, like it should, because the fans are now disabled. After it completly shuts down, plug the fan wire back into the board. Turn the unit back on and, presto, its working again. It will not turn off.

Try it!

Viewsonic PJ556d shuts down after 30-60 seconds

My solution sounds dumb, I had the same issue. Took the lamp cover off the bottom. The screws were loose holding in the lamp. Maybe they heat and expand and eventually work their way out and the lamp doesn't make good contact. Just tightened mine up, the unit would power off after 45 minutes prior. Been on now for 5 hours, no trouble.

This model projector is very sensitive to internal heat. I f by some reason the projector was abruptly powered down without the use of its normal procedure, in other words, unpluging cord from wall while on or power outage in premises, then the heat remains trapped and the sensors overheat and subsequently shuts down the unit. Now, although, once the sensors cool down it should reinstate operation some sensors become permanently damaged due to the extreme heat. In this case without having more facts, i believe it is the cause. I recommend a free check up to your nearest shop, most shops will offer free check ups.

My Panny AE700U shut down & won't restart

HI there

This is a faulty Mainboard that will need either repair or replacement.

If a Projector starts playing on and off tricks I have found it to be 99% of the time a faulty Mainboard.

Remove the six screws from the bottom and 2 screws in the back that hold on the top cover. Once you have the top cover removed you will see a small round red button on the front of the unit. Press this button in; it should not pop back out. Put cover back on and plug it in.
