You have a problem with your fan/s, it will not start so it has either got a fault with it or the sencor has been knocked.

Optoma hd20 fan shut down


I put this here because when I was experiencing the same issue I found there was very little info online for this topic. Optoma asked me $125 just to take a look at my out of warranty hd20 projector after I started getting the dreaded "fan failure" error message, I got this error mesage after replacing the bulb (its important to note that the bulb did explode in the unit so some of the debris may have lodged in the fan.) Optoma also kept saying stuff like motherboard issues and fan sensors on the phone. Everything I've read has said the repair price is so high on these issues that it is better to upgrade to a new projector so I resigned myself to doing that very thing. Then I ran up on this video and thought what the heck. So I took the plunge and popped the case off and sure enough the same little fan was stuck and covered with dust. I gently moved it with a screw driver and blew all the dust out of it. Plugged it back in and I'm experiencing glorious 135" hd once again.

I just replaced a power supply, it has one fan instead of 2. Works great but now I get an error message saying it can't find the fan (which I'm no longer using), how do I get rid of the message?


replace the fan. it needs all the fans the projector was designed with to properly cool it down. without all the fans, the lamp will overheat and cause premature lamp and projector failure. the fan has 3 wires- ground, power and sensor. if the fan spins too slow or not at all, the projector will shut down to prevent damage.

so, replace the fan.

We have an optoma ep739. when you turn the lamp on, a message 'fan failure' comes on. the fan is running at what appears to be a slow speed. the red temp light goes on and then the lamp turn off.


Hi there

Try cleaning out the fan by blowing it out with a compressor. Most of the time this is only caused by dust.

If the problem stil occurs , try spraying it on the inside with a lubricant.

If the problem stil occurs you will have to replace the faulty fan.

Very cheap to have replaced.
