Question about Dell 2200MP Multimedia Projector
I have the Dell 2200mp projector, and it has started to make noise when running. It's a sort of squealing noise followed by buzzing - a louder buzz/hum than normal.
I think it has to do with the fan, but I can't figure out how to get inside and check it. All the screws holding it together don't seem to help me take it apart. Does anyone know where I can get instructions on how to take it apart? I don't have the warranty any longer.
Most of the screws are accessible from the bottom of the case. Put the projector on its back and use a thin Phillips. There may be one other screw hidden on the side that has a plastic cover on it. Once you have loosened all the screws you can find, turn it over and try to lift the top part of the case. If there are still screws in place, you will be able to find them by seeing at which part the case does not wiggle as you try to lift it. That helps you find where the two halves are still attached and where the remaining screws are.
I have a 2200, but it is in the shop because it turns on and right off, and nobody could help me fix it. When I get it back, I might be able to help you find all the screw points.
Your fan has probably dried up and needs a drop or two of oil on the shaft where it goes into the motor.
An option if you cannot open the case is try to find the point where the shaft goes into the fan motor, and spray a little WD-40 at that spot using the red hose that comes with the can. If you get it at the right spot, the noise should lessen or go away completely.
