Question about Optoma MovieTime DV10 Multimedia Projector
Last night my projector started making a very loud sound in the middle of the movie. It sounds like the fan is malfunctioning or some type of motor is broken. Any ideas?
2nd update - Cuz came 'round, put humpty dumpty back together again and the sound is still there. Upon further research I found that the clear segment is missing on the colour wheel (someone else has this same problem) anyways removed the colour wheel and held it in my hand and found that it vibrates like my wifes favourite toy so somehow I'm gonna fashion a new segment out of sticky back plastic and a fairy liquid bottle like they used to on blue peter cos Optoma quoted me £150 for the repair! Wish me luck....

Update: I opened mine up and found a segment of the color wheel had snapped off. Maybe it was blocking something..I can't put the projector back together though so waiting till the weekend for my cuz to do it for me...I'm glad cos my lamp is only a month old.

I don't think it's your lamp. My lamp is only a month old and it did the same thing last night after I mopped my room with lots of water and let it dry naturally (I increased the water content in the air by a lot!). Anyways I tried my old lamp and the same noise is still there.... Anyone else?

Yeah the lamp is probably busted. The thing must not have been handled with care.

It's the lamp. The same exact thing happened to me, my projector started making a loud whinning noise and the picture quality got really dim. At first i thought it was the fan too but after alittle online research i found out that that when the lamp bulb shatters it does this, so i went a got a replacement and it fixed all the problems. :)
