Question about Dwin TransVision 3 Plus Multimedia Projector
Dwin 3 plus plays for couple minutes or hours, then goes black, volume continues. sent in box and projector, they work for the service people. wonder if the dvi cable is fried.
I had a similar problem... mine would work for a few minutes and then it would make a noise like the colorwheel was warped or something. I took the unit apart and discovered that one of the cooling fans wasn't firing up with the unit.. it had a loose wire. I reconnected the wire and now it works fine. Hard to find help with these units.

SOURCE: Dwin lamp turns off
I design and implement switching power supplies for the commercial lighting industry. I also own a DWiN Transvision and have opened it and worked on it several times. I believe I can answer this question.
The DWIN projectors use a proprietary switching power supply to strike the lamp and keep it burning. The power supply is extremely sophisticated and maintains tight voltage and current tolerances. This is important because the halides in the lamp are damaged by power supply fluctuations. The halides can often be seen in an unfired lamp, they appear as small specks of dirt or tiny beads inside the lamp envelope. When a metal halide lamp is struck, the halides (which are rare earth elements) vaporize and cling to the inner wall of the lamp envelope. The mixture of halide gas in the lamp is what determines the color temperature of the lamp, as well as the accuracy of the lamp across the entire color spectrum.
One of the ways that DWIN is able to deliver such great color is because they use a lamp which delivers this great color across the spectrum, but, as I pointed out earlier, can be damaged by fluctuations.
The power supply contains three switching sections and five references for such things as input and output voltage for each psu section, as well as overcurrent demands from the lamp.
From my experience, your lamp(s) are all exhibiting issues that require replacement.

It is fairly simple. Take the unit down as you need to get to the underside. There you will see the retaining screws that hold the cover on. Remove these and open the unit. Inside you will see the bulb and mounting bracket. Off hand I don't remember exactly how it is held in place but there are a number of screws and a lead to disconnect to remove it.
