Projector indicates overheating and shut down

After about one minute of operation it detects overheating and shuts down. The main cooling fan immediately comes on to cool it down. All filters are clean

    Startup process is all normal. Countdown then the image is on the screen. In less than 60 seconds the green led goes out leaving only the Red lit. Cooling fans crank up to cool it down and then it starts back over. I am NOT getting an overheat indicator lamp coming on. All fans appear to be working.

Why is my sanyo plv wf20 projector shutting down after I turn it on.


The fan may be out that keeps the bulb cool. The shutdown is to protect the lamp from overheating. Do you have any flashing indicator lights on the projector after turning it on?

Unit is shutting down after ten min


My unit never got to the point of actually shutting down due to overheating, but your problem may be related to what I experienced: A bent lamp heat shield.

My Optoma EP739 started exhibiting color-banding and strong color shift after years of great service. After trying other suggestions that didn't work, here is the FIX for my unit. I have not seen this posted anywhere else.


Problem: After 10-20 minutes of use, color-banding and then a strong shift to purple/green with almost no red. If the unit is turned off for 5-10 minutes to cool and then powered-up again the problem goes away, only to come back in another 10-20 minutes. Enabling the "High Altitude" setting in the Setup Menu helped for a while (a week or two) since it forces the main cooling fan run at high speed always, but then the problem re-appeared.

Reason: Overheating. The electronics are overheating. Like several people have suggested: First step: Open the unit up and blow-out/vacuum all of the accumulated dust. Assure BOTH fans (there is a small drum blower directly cooling the lamp and a larger regular fan that circulates air through the entire unit) are operating and clear of debris.

Once you have done that, then look for the REAL issue. With the front panel (i.e.the panel with the hole for the lens) removed and looking into the projector from the front examine the metal heat shield on the right side above the lamp. In my unit, because of years of service and heat, the aluminum lamp housing had deformed slightly, tilting this sheet metal heat shield directly INTO the air stream from the fan. This restricts the airflow enough to reduce cooling capacity. This metal shield should be high enough above the lamp to be TOUCHING the plastic case. If it is bent down and is halfway into the air stream then it restricting the exhaust airflow, causing the overheating.

Fix: Bend the heat shield back up so that it is not in the exhaust airflow. It must be ABOVE the airflow, protecting the plastic case from the heat of the lamp. This simple remedy fixed the issue for me. My projector has been running 2-3 hours a day for 10 days now with no banding issues at all. That's it. Simple fix.

3M SCP712 projector shuts down after an hour--can't turn back till it cools


Hello
the problem is with overheating. Look whether the cooling fan doesn't work or air filter is cloggy with dust. OK.

Projector shuts down after a couple of minutes with lamp and temp lights flashin, is this a fan poblem and can i replace the fan?


This probably the fan is not cooling down the temperature of the high intensity bulb. Due to overheating the bulb will shutdown. Get a correct specification fan to replace the aging fan.

Our PJ-TX10 projector is turning itself off


First, to rule out true overheating, clean any dust filters and air-access areas. There might be enough dust on the filter to cause a gradual build-up of heat which could trip one of the temperature sensors in the unit. I clean my projector once a week--There might be a cooling fan going bad--after a while, heat causes the fan motor to start to drag and slows down the air flow. Also, there might be a temp sensor that is shutting down the unit prematurely.--Rick

My projector will run for a time between 20 minutes and 2 hours and then it shuts down. It will start right back up (takes 3-5 minutes for it to cool and then restart) after that. What could be wrong?


It could be overheating. Can you hear a fan running? Does the projector feel hot to the touch?
Try putting a small house fan on it to cool it and see if that helps.
