Re: I need a cooling fan.

Hey ReeseB,

I was wondering are you still willing to sell your Dell 2300 MP for parts? If you are then I would be interested in buying your color wheel. This is the wheel that is attached in front of your lamp. It has a mirror with different colors on it that spin. If you still don't know what i'm talking about email me back and I'll be more specific. My email is

Re: I need a cooling fan.

Dell dont sell internal parts for any projectors they sale. I just talked to them this week and was very upset with them about this matter.

Optoma th1020 - heard loud "pop" and now projector vibrates violently. Shaking so much that it cant stay in focus

Sounds to me like a blade has come adrift from one of the cooling fans in the unit, throwing the fan out of balance (The pop you heard will have been from the pice of plastic being ejected from the fan). Unless you are experienced in electronic servicing, I would not advise opening the unit to identify which fan - you'll almost certainly have to take it to an authorised repairer anyway since these fans are usually highly customised units

Something is catching on the fan blades. Possibly a screw or piece of plastic has come loose and is connecting with the fan blades when you switch it on. When the projector has been cool for a few hours remove the lamp and gently shake the unit to dislodge whatever is catching on the fan.

Dear sir this product once on green indication within seconds going to red indication.

There are five fans in the projector.
2 for LCD cooling
2 for lamp cooling
1 for power supply and lamp drive unit
if any one is not moving, faulty, broken, than the problem occur.

Experience: many times a broken piece of plastic or self removed screw to stop the fan moving or jam to dust.

Solution: service your projector and fans

The cooling fan stop working on my Epson EMP 700 Multimedia Projector, can I get a replacement part and replace it myself?

The temperature indicator is red.
The projector is overheating, which turns the lamp off
automatically. Let the projector cool for a few minutes,
then turn it back on. Make sure nothing is blocking the
ventilation vents.
If the projector continues to overheat after you clean the air
filter, the problem may be caused by damage to the cooling
fan or internal circuits. Contact a qualified service person.
¨ Warning: Do not attempt to service this product yourself except
as specifically explained in this User's Guide.

Dropped projector

It may HAVE fractured the solder connections to the RGB connector OR worst case may have cracked the circuit board to the connector.

Resolder the connections AND if necessary, bridge jumpers around the board cracked circuit traces.

Hey my optoma hd65 bulb blew so i replaced it and when i powered it back up i received the fan lock error

the lamp probably blew because the fan stopped. if the lamp can't cool down, it blows. you'll have to find out which fan and replace it.

To open this projector, you need to undo six screws at the underside of the case. That means you have to turn the projector upsidedown.
Pls note that one of these scews is a little hidden under the carrying handle.
After removing the screws, return the projector to it's normal 'up-side' up, standing position.
Remove the bulb cover srews and remove the bulb cover.
Lift up the top cover carefully starting from the front then all together.
The cooling fan is mounted very near the bulb assembly.
Carefully check the fan blades for any obtacles, wires or even a broken fan blade, that could be causing the noise.

Two red lights are illuminated on the unit and it won't play

Check the air filters. Sometimes if they are dirty, they will stop the airflow to the projector and it will not turn on because it keeps overheating.
