I downloaded the schematics and drawings for $US9.00 and found what I thought may have been a thermistor turned out to be a fuse. Obtained one from Sony spares and it is now OK. If it is possible would you guys know the value of the fuse [amp/milliamps??] If you are familar it is fuse 2P connected to C board, it looks like a small lump of plastic or diode block. The cost of the fuse is outragous from Sony. I hope I do not have to replace it again. However, if I do I would love the valua and I could see if I could get one from Radio shack or someplace similar. If I was not retired I would buy one and put it on a step tranny and watch the ampmeter for the blow current. But, thats life when you decide to retire. I believe the voltage value is 3volts??

Would appreciate any feed-back on the value of the fuse.

And I hope this may help others

Thanks and Good-day

Depending on the inputs on your projector and the outputs on the Macbook, you'll need to pickup one of a few adapters.

Data projector is not turning on. How can I check for broke fuses?


open up the top case. the fuse will be on the power supply board right next to where the power cord plugs in. you'll need a continuity tester to test it. if it is blown, replace it with the exact size and type. if it is not blown, replace the power supply.

Projector wont switch on.


if there are no leds lit on the top, then the power supply is bad (check the fuse on it first). if there are leds lit, which ones, what color, and are they flashing, and how many times? this will tell you the problem.

Projector turns off after 30 seconds.


I had the same problem I replaced the motor/lense cover unit at the cost of $AU140.00 and that fixed it.
