Question about Runco CL-510LT Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Projector problem Hi! My name is Kym Ergas. I have installed Runco projector for our home theatre 7 years ago and this is the first time I am having a problem .  What happenned was that  one night My family was watching a movie together and noticing  a burning smell going on. We thought that may have been the smell of  our cooking  for dinner that has stored inside the theatre room as it covered everywhere in the house. So We didn't really worry about it that much then and two nights later, I turned on the projector for our indoor movie night, the projector turned on with showing a litle circle on the screen for just only a few seconds and went dead all by itself. I tried several times but without successful. It just wouldn't turn on at all.  So what would be the problem there? Please assist me if you can. Thank you very much!

I have a bit of knowledge that might help. First of all is there any light or sound coming from the projector? If not, your projector is not getting power so change the remote batteries(if good then power supply is dead.) If it does make a sound like a fan, or clicking, then check the lamp. The lamp will have a frost on it or the center conductor in the lamp will be separated, then it's dead. If you know the lamp hours are around 700hrs.(check the manual how) or so it might be covered under warranty from the lamp manufacturer. If the lamp is fine and gets power but no picture then it probably will require repair.

I have a great deal of experience with that projector in particular. 
The burning smell along with the circle on the screen can be one of two thing in the same general area. Both are not good.
The lamp assembly has its own dedicated cooling fans. these fans can sometimes **** in dust and insects. the lamp runs at a very high temperature and can burn those things quickly. I have often found old lamps with particles fused to the glass.
The other situation is that the lamp burned something and it got stuck to the glass somewhere in the light path. 
if I remember right the projector monitors the temprature of the bulb and will shutdown if it gets too hot.
Runco is based in california and has a great turn around time on projectors. Unfortunately with Runco you would be hard pressed to find a technician that wouldn't just send it to them for repairs anyways. The major down side with Runco is that customers cannot talk directly to engineers or service men. 
Locate a Runco authorized retailer in your area, check runcoes site. and give them a call to see if they cant send it to runco for you. if you cannot find one in your area call Roscor or Blair & Associates in Chicago.

Runco CL710 projector. Had power outage and projector won't turn on. Project was plugged into surge protector. Surge protector is working, green light is on. Checked all electrical breakers, they are...


The capacitors on the power supply need to be replaced. When you take apart the projector, and then remove the power supply (it's the section that the power cord goes to) and open it up. Look for the little can capacitors and see if any of them are bulging on top. That is the sign that they've blown. Replace the big ones (about 5) for about $5 in parts. Reassemble and test by turning it on. Search for YouTube video for this.

Reset lamp timer runco vx-5000


Using the remote control for your projector, turn the unit on, then select 'menu' on the remote. On the menu that pops up in the screen, select 'SERVICE', then 'DISPLAY DEVICE', then 'INSTALLATION'... once you select that, scroll over to the "RESET" under the lamp hours... this should reset it.

Here is a link to the owners manual for your unit.

Hi there

Have you tried using another input like the Component instead of the DVI. See if it makes any difference.

If not it could be the DMD or your Mainboard.

Most of the time it is the Mainboard - Home Theatre Projectors come out with awesome DMD's , so I doubt it to be the problem.

Hope this is usefull !
