Fan HiI think my fan has stopped working on one side of the unit. Air is coming out of the other side but is hot with a light burnt stinch. I've never payed any attention before.After about 3 minutes of playing a dvd on my Optoma Movietime projector, the unit will turn off (overheated I guess).How and where do I find a fan replacement? What type of repair shops should I look for.ThanksGeorge

Why is our Proxima Desktop Projector 8000 turning off after a period of time?

There is a THERMAL fuse that is used to prevent fires and electrical destruction of the unit. Lamps get very hot and unless the AIR flow is good, the temperature gets too hot and shuts down the system. The fan speed may be too low, the unit may need to be cooled down with an exterior fan? Try options.

Hi, I have a Christie RoadRunner L6 Projector. When I turn it on the lamp light turns red and it does nothing. This unit does have dual lamps and a lamp replacement lamp light as well. I figured if it was...

I have a Christie RoadRunner L8 that fires up,lamps turn on and about 5 seconds after the lamps fire up it shuts down and both the warning temp. and ready lights flash at the same time. It seems to me it must be a sensor that tells it to shut down thinking that the machine is too hot-all the fans work and all of the filters are clean and it is moving serious air any clue and if so where do I start to look for such items? Thanks in advance Kirk

Boxlight CD-725C TEMP light comes on and unit shuts down afer 10 minutes. Unit has about 1200 hours on the bulb. Seconds before the unit stops, at least one of the fans slows down.

The reason why the temp comes on because the fan is start slow down, so the bulb produce a lot of heat. Once the maximum temp reach, the temperature sensor will become inactive. So boxlight shutdown. First you need to replace the fan, or check the supply dc voltage going to fan if it is stable.

The power button light flashing rapidly (white light NOT green)

OK - I had 100% the same problem, and after lots of trial and error, and asking for advice, here it is: The capacitor is "C16" - a small blue electrolytic - 100uf 16v. It is in the center of the power supply board partially hidden by a black heat sink and the large silver chunk of metal.

Swapped for a 25v 100uf I had lying around and she works like a charm now.

Color bleed and Fan

I had similar problems with my EP739 shutting down in the middle of a presentation. Optima told me to run the fan on the high altitude setting. But the real problem was I was setting the computer too close to the projector, and the hot air from the computer was being sucked into the projector. Once I learned to set the computer away from the vents on the projector, the problem went away.

Loud Fan Noise

Review Date
Monday, 12th of September, 2005 --> What's Hot
User-friendly, built-in DVD player, high-throw ratio lens, fast power/cool down What's Not
Fan operation is quite audible, native resolution of just 480p The Final Word
A perfect coffee table companion Notes
# This product is no longer available directly from the manufacturer. It may be available in retail and distribution channels, or second hand. The price displayed is the price at review time and the last available recommended retail price.

The DV10 has a futuristic-looking outer casing and two internal speakers located behind a silver grille mesh at the rear. Heat is removed through its side ventilation and the internal fan has a noise level of 27dB, which is comparable to a loud computer and quite distracting when watching movies at low volume. At 368 x 117 x 273mm, the unit is small enough to permanently and inconspicuously reside on a coffee table.

this is from a review .

it sounds like that the fan needs to be cleaned the sound you hear is normal but if it sounds like its racein the moder might be on its way out if you have a can of air used to clean a key bored i would try to clean it out with that if not take it to a repair place to see if they could look at the moder

A couple of things...

If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.

Check the items above and let us know your progress.

Projector shuts off after about 45 minutes

Just a long shot, but...

I have an epson 9000i that did the same thing. Turns out that unit has a small fan (I think 60mm) right next to the power supply to keep it cool, in addition to the large fan that exhausts past the lamp. The fan runs non-stop as long as the unit is powered-up for two reasons I can think of - keep the power supply a little cooler, and the lamp a little warmer so there's not such a temp difference when it powers-up. Long story short, that fan had died. I replaced it with an aftermarket 60mm fan and it's been working fine ever since. Hope this helps.
