Epson ELP 5500 projectors

My school district has a number of these ELP 5500s and they seem to be delelvoping the same problem. They will run normally for a few miinutes, ranging from 2 to 30 and then will shut off completely. No fans, no lights, nothing at all. The power must be cycled with the main switch and then it will start up again immediately and do the same thing in about the same time.
I teach electronics and they have asked my class to look into these. They will throw them out if we can't fix them. The first one had a fan making horrible noises so we tore it apart and yanked the fans to find replacements. Before we could find new ones they brought us another doing the exact same thing, but the fans all seem to be working fine.

Any help here would be greatly appraciated, you can write to me at, or Dave henderson at 586-825-2800 xt 17117.

Thanks, Dave

The filter screens could be completly covered in dust, one teacher at my school uses one of our epson 83c's a lot and he called me down because it kept shutting off completley after a while.  I took a can of air and cleaned out the screen and put it back in and now it works fine again.  By the way, if they are throwing out any projectors out, let me know, I'd love to mess around with them to see if I can get them running again.  Thanks, hope this helps!

We have an Epson Powelite projector mounted in a classroom and just recently it is projecting everything with a purple tint to it. Before that the colors were not as vivid as when we first installed it. ...

An image is produced in these projectors by passing color through three different LCD panels. One is a Red, one a blue, and the last one a purple. It sounds like the green panel is damaged. The only way to tell is to take it to an Epson authorized service center.

ELP 3300 lamp problem?

probably. try to check the number of light hours( you can check the manual on how to view it) usually 10000 hours could mean that you need to replace the bulb. also check the physical appearance of the bulb, if it has cracks on the ceramic at the back, then you need to replace it.

Video adjustment on LCD projector

convergence on lcd is a tough issue... you can if you are really good and know what you are doing adjust the panels to correct some convergence issues. but depending on how many hours the unit has, the LCD panels may have warped due to the heat inside the projector, then corrections is pretty impossible.

Epson ELP 5500 projectors

Hi technoteach

Will try and get my hands on a Service Manual for this model - in which you would find the circuit diagrams. This is a faulty Mainboard that is causing the problem.

Projector vertical running lines

Hi there

This is definatelly a interference from a power cable. If any of your signal cables in the ceiling is closer that 5cm to one of those , you will get interference.

The Company that did the installation should know this and I would suggest you call them and tell them that they should sort it out. They should either move the cables or insulate them by means of conduit.
