Kind of late response but it sounds like the belt has broken or stretched and slipped off. They are hard to find but there are some around.

if it's a very old model, the grease in the fan shaft cap and on the shaft itself, as well as inside the fan centre, may have hardened up. Remove the bottom cover, carefully remove the fan cover/fan cap/c-clip under the cap, spring (note the direction of the top of the spring)/triangular plastic bushing. if the bushing is cracked or cracks when you handle it, it will still work if you reassemble all pieces.

Now clean all greased surfaces and and put a thin but even coat of SUPER LUBE-TEFLON GREASE . It may be sold under different names-it comes in a 3 oz tube, silver grey, and the grease is whitish-clear. Fill the fan cap with it when reassembling. Also put a large dab on the end of the fan that sits (when the projector is upside down) on the "bottom" of the projector. You can usually find Super-lube at any industrial supply store.

Besure to make sure there are no pinched wires when you reassemble the projector.

    You definately have either a bad motor pulley, or slipping or broken belt. Do not run for more than a few seconds in that condition, or you will blow a thermal fuse! Belts can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com. Specify the brand and model when you contact them! Good Luck! Jim

Runco cl-610 projector


Likely the fan blades are dirty and out of balance. If this projector is in a dusty or smoky place you will need to clean them (or have them cleaned by a tech) often. If you are not good with electronics, I suggest taking it to a dealer. If you can get the covers off properly, you will need use a can of compressed air to carefully blow out the projector and fan blades.

After replacing the lamp and reseting the lamp settings, the projector automatically turns off after approximately 5 minutes.


has the projector been cleaned? You can blow it out with air but don't spin the fans too fast or they will break. If it has a filter has it been cleaned? Don't use canned air on it when it is on though.

New bulb worked for a short trail run now wont light up. flashing green led colour wheel is turning on start up


when you changed the lamp, did you blow the dust out of the projector? if the screen on the side of the lamp is blocked (i.e. with dust), the lamp will blow quickly. if the projector were to overheat, by the fans not running or blocked vents, everything would shut down and the led would blink red.

A power cut whilst the projector being used, caused power light to blink red, now the projector doesn't turn on


it could be the fan, colorwheel or high temp. remove the lamp and turn it on. do the fans spin? if not, replace the fans. does the colorwheel (colored glass wheel near the lamp) spin? you should be able to see it and hear a high-pitched whir. if not, replace the colorwheel. if the lamp was still hot when it was turned off, you need to let the fans run and cool. then unplug it, plug it back in and try again.

Our PJ-TX10 projector is turning itself off


First, to rule out true overheating, clean any dust filters and air-access areas. There might be enough dust on the filter to cause a gradual build-up of heat which could trip one of the temperature sensors in the unit. I clean my projector once a week--There might be a cooling fan going bad--after a while, heat causes the fan motor to start to drag and slows down the air flow. Also, there might be a temp sensor that is shutting down the unit prematurely.--Rick

InFocus LP725 light goes out after 10 minutes


The Projector will turn off after so many hours of running the same bulb module. The counter will turn on a replace bulb LED. Installing the new bulb module should reset the counter and turn off the LED.

Check the projector’s lamp to ensure that it is securely connected
in the lamp module. Make sure by removing it and reinserting it.

Check the cables for problems.

When testing, power up in this order. Projector, Computer monitor, Computer.

A minor power surge may cause the lamp to shut off. Turn the
projector off, wait at least 30 seconds, then turn it back on.

I hope these suggestions help
