A terrible sound

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?

    The fan started a loud noise as soon as I started up the projector. Does anyone know how to open and see the fan inside? Is it possible? Any other ideas on how to repair this?

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. :)

Optoma movie time projector has a vibrating sound


Normally this sound noise is the small FAN inside. Dirty or faulty. You must open the proyector, or go to some shop repair.

My projector is making loud buzzing noises that arent normal.. I just ceiling mounted my projector its an InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 and the bulb has 1500 hours on it. The buzz started after it was on for 30...


If this sound you are describing is NOT constant and is intermittent in nature it is certainly not a color wheel problem. This sound is usually caused by failure of the Lamp cooling fan (the large one)'s Mos-Fet driver chip. Located on the bottom of the main board. These surface mount "chips" do fail and it's a fairly common problem however this is usually (but not always) accompanied by the projector shutting itself down after a few minuets or so as the high temp switch trips off. A color wheel common failure presents in two ways, either all the glass color filters fly off (there are six) and the image is monochrome (black and white) or just one or more of the segments has come off and the result is an imbalance of the color wheel which spins VERY fast resulting in a vibration
that is constant and can easily be felt by placing your hand on the projector. And all of these problems are very easy to repair.

Good Luck!

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

Vibration noise on optima Projectro/DVD unit


Hi mstadisasta

This is a faulty colourwheel that will have to be replaced as a colourwheel cannot be repaired.

It is quite easy to replace and I would suggest you to do it yourself if this unit is no longer under warranty.
All you'll have to do is get your hands on the new colourwheel from your local or nearest retailer.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Infocus x1 projector


Indeed, the problem you describe is the Color Wheel. Very common issue in the X1,2 projectors. Unfortunately the only fix is to replace this wheel. The cost of the part generally runs around $175 but the labor to replace is about the same. You will need to find an authorized service center where you live or send it to a repair facility. Parts for any of the InFocus units are generally not available to the public, alas the Service Centers. Maybe for the same cost you could look at a new projector, like I did.

NEC LT260 PROJECTOR NOISE


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.
