ASK Proxima C420 shuts down after 30 seconds. No indication of overheating or lamp problem.

Might be a problem with the video input. Try a different cable. If HDMI, you will need a really good cable for HDTV or 3D, and they are very expensive. My 12 foot cable cost $180.

Replace a fan

I'm assuming you researched YouTube for dis-assembly.

But replacing the fan on a Proxima is very unforgiving. You'll have to remove the casing which means taking out a lot of screws. All I can recommend is;

- Obviously disconnect the projector and make sure you don't have any residue charged components, or work from a non-metal table.

- Chances are there's more than one fan, you'll have to make sure you're not removing fans unnecessarily.

- With a digital camera (or cell phone) take pictures of each phase of removing the casing. You'll refer to the pictures when putting it back together. Keep a pill box to hold each screw type.

- There may be plastic tabs around the casing that need to be pry-ed off with a flat-tip screwdriver. Use care removing the hood of the projector. You can damage delicate ribbon cables.

- If you find its more involved than expected, stop and re-assemble it. Then send it in for projector repair.

Good Luck,

Bernelli projector lamp goes off every 20 minute

you can have 3 possible problem 1) faulty lamp 2) colder joint in pwb 3) ballast faulty. However you must clean any contact with contact solvent spray before to do anything.and tight any connector, and reheat any colder joint. Seeif you FAN is working good or STOP, if do the problem is the FAN circuit

In Focus Ask Proxima M2+ has a squeaking noise and the image flickers. After about 30 minutes the unit goes to standby.

Bearing on the fan is probably shot, causing the unit to heat up and shut down. Repair would more than likely exceed the replacement value of the projector.

I get a temp warning on start up and then just shuts down only one fan seems to be working the one next to the lens dose the bottom fan only come on at certain temp. or are both fans supposed to run all...

first blow out any dust out of the projector with canned air. duat holds in heat. if the other fan is supposed to come on at first and doesn't, you would get a fan warning, not a temp warning.

Need to replace proxima x350 fans

there are no part number because there are no parts available. but if you are getting an overheating message, move the sensor for the front fan or remove it altogether (cut it off, jumper the wires, and tape them up well. and make sure they are away from the fan).

Proxima X350: Lamp Shut Down Intermittently > Upgraded Firmware > Fan Not Working

Hello fellows,
I have the same problem with my projector (Proxima UltraLight X350). I have the firmware v1.34.
On my projector, I found a workarround : if I press the 'top arrow' button on the projector at the message prompt, this one simply disapears and the projector works for hour. The drawback is the red led that don't stop blinking.
Can you cooperate and tell us if this solution worked on your projector ? Please also join the firmware version (found in the service menu, with the lamp life).

Error "Fan Stopped"

yes. it needs the third wire to sense the fan speed. without it, the projector assumes that the fan is not running.
