Dell 2200pm making noise

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.

Re: Dell 2200pm making noise

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.

I have a dell 2200mp the color wheel motor seems to be making noise, noise disapears when lamp is shut off can I purchase part or what is cost to have replaced?

Not experienced on dells ( I have only repaired sharp projectors) probably about AU$200-250 for the part and about $AU200 to get it fitted. It can be a tricky replacement particularly for the compact projectors
Good Luck

How do i connect cable tv to my dell 2200mp projector

You can connect it directly with a composite cable. There would be a RCA(yellow) video output on the back of your cable TV. This is then connected to Video input(yellow) f you projector.

If your cable TV has Component output (threr RCA cable Green, Red, Blue), then these thre RCA could be connected to the similar one available on your Projector.

You could connect your sound als o thru the RCA out of Cable TV and input of Projector. But if you have a good AV Receiver or a sound system then it best suited for it, since the projector speaker is mono and only 2Watt output.
Let me know if there are any specific inputs required
The Dell 2200 mp projector has the following compatibility
:HDTV: 1080i, 720p
EDTV/480p: Yes SDTV/480i: Yes Component Video: Yes Video: Yes Digital Input: No Computers: Yes

Check that lamp cover microswitch closes (clicks). This microswitch disables the power supply when open. I had to bend the lever a bit to make it reliable.

Unit shuts itself down

Sounds like you have an overheating problem. Maybe a bad fan? Also you may have a bad connection to the "bulb".
