Question about Dell 1100MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Wont start up

My church has only used this projector maybe 20 times but is having some issues :( When you turn it on the buttons light up like they should but then the temp and lamp light blink about 20 times and then it shuts off. I was thinking that it is the fan because it doesnt come on when you start it and if it was the lamp wouldnt the lamp light just stay lit brightly and be constant??

Re: wont start up


Pls clean the filters and check the lamp by opening the lamp cover. If lamp looks okay in all aspects then send the projector to any engineer to check the ballast unit of the lamp.

Projector works for about 20 seconds then starts flashing lamp/cover light

I am having the same problem. Have you ever put this projector in emergency mode by turning the the grey screw on the bottom of the projector? I am looking heavily into this, maybe we can help each other out along the way. (armyvet96 at hotmail dot com)

Projector is not turning on...and turns off when on

if the lamp is good, it could be a fan not working, which would be a bad fan or bad main board. IF the fans are working, then I would have to say that the power supply was bad or the fan laying flat against the bottom in the right rear corner is bad.

Remote won't turn on Eiki EIP-2500 projector

Try cleaning the IR port on the projector (and the remote itself). These can get enough of a dust layer build up that they can't "see" the infrared signal being sent.

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!

I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

Projector screen turns off after 10-20 seconds

Is the projector receiving a source signal? if not it will power itself down after whatever time you have it set to do so when no signal is present.
Just an idea?

My Power light Continuasly blinksand wont turn on?

Lots of times with projectors is when you pack them away for a long time the bulb may become loose or maybe you have a wiring issue. its highly possible that your bulb may have just come loose. this occurs alot when you move it around alot. If it suffered any physical damage like maybe someone decided to use it as a stress relief punching bag then maybe the carbon fiber in the bulb may have snapped or a wire may have come loose inside the projecter. Hope i cleared up some of your confusion, unfortunately i dont have any real solutions for you. sorry. ~~RJ~~

Input 1

We have a similar problem with our sharp projector at church where the remote is on a long cable up to the projector as it is too far for the infrared. Sometimes it quits listening to the remote and we've found that unpluging the remote cable and plugging it back in restores the operation. Apparently, the long cable introduces noise into the remote input and gives it illegal codes sometimes.
Does yours only do this with that one button?
Hope Ya Fix it! Grace and Peace to you....
