Question about Dell 3300MP Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Dell 3300MP I have the Dell 3300MP. It recently gets hot and shuts off. I noticed that when the window is open it doesn't do it. It now is sitting on top of my DVR. Could the fan that helps circulates  the air be blocked?

Re: Dell 3300MP

I have the same projector and to fix any problem with over heating i run in eco mode with the high altitude option, which makes the fan run faster - end result is more air flow and less heat

How old is your unit and or how many hours are on the lamp?
As the lamps age they run hotter and it could need replacing.
If so, buy just the bulb instead of the lamp assy and install it yourself.

I have dell 3300mp,when I turn the power on it makes a very loud noise. It does not make the sound in standby or cool down. It does work and display a signal okay, but it is very loud. Sound like a fan?,...

The main fan that cools the lamp is mostly high speed when the unit is running. when it shuts down it slows the fan down, until it stops in standby. So the noise is only really loud when it is showing a picture.

try setting the fan to eco mode (slower running) and see if the noise is acceptable. If it is still too loud then you will have to replace it. Have a look at the fan and see if any of the plastic blades are missing.

I am trying to find out how to get into the service mode on a Dell 3300mp projector. I had a color wheel go bad and I found a replacement. The colors are now off so I believe I need to make an adjustment...

there is a sensor on the wheel which sets the timing of the wheel to match the dmd. make sure you got the right colorwheel. or you might have to send it in to dell.

Using a Dell 3300MP Multimedia Projector trying to connect to a mac via usb...says "cannot find signal", nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

you cannot pass a signal through a usb input. USB inputs on a computer are usually used from firmware upgrades or mouse control depending on projector.
