I see that you have replied to someone technical request for help with an overheating projector, I have the same fault and have cleaned out all the dust but it still has the fault, warning overheating, You say that it my be the fan or the sensor, can you tell me where I can get replacements.
I'm going to start my parts search today. It is a shame that this model seems to have this issue--everyone reviewing it says how awesome of a projector it is except for this one fault.
In most of the reviews I'm reading, the people that run into this problem often run into it pretty much out of the box, so they get it repaired under warranty. This one that I'm dealing with only recently started doing it, far out of warranty. So I'm kind of up a creek.
I'm going to start disassembly and looking for part numbers today.

Being a projection device... Which most TV's aren't ...
You need to break the fault down into the Projection Section or the TV Section.
Or Power Supply Section
Projector bulb blown, overheating etc.
Power supply sensing overload or fault then automatically shutting down.
TV Section may be OK
small internal LCD screen is projected by lens.
Usually a projector overheats because it is not getting proper ventilation. Make sure that the projector has adequate air flow. Do not put the projector in a cabinet or small space during operation. Check all the filters and see if they need to be cleaned or replaced. Read the user manual for your projector and follow the instructions on how it should be cleaned.
Hi Connect your computer monitor out VGA connector to Computer input VGA connector of projector. Select source in projector (with remote) as computer/RGB/VGA as terminology used on the projector..
The projector will work as large screen projection monitor for the projector.
If you want to use monitor and projector both, you can use 1IN-2 OUT VGA distribution amplifier (Commonly called as "VGA Splitter"

It may be the lamp is out. Normally a projector will try & fire the lamp 3-5 times then shut down with a different color light like amber or red. If the lamp doesn't light then it could be the lamp or perhaps the lamp ballast that starts the lamp has failed. A stuck fan also causes similar symptoms. There's 2-4 fans in the projector if one is stuck or bad it will turn off within 5 seconds or so after the lamp lights.
Does your lamp light at all? Are the lights a different color after it shuts down? Answers to these questions help figure out what's wrong though it's impossible to say for sure without looking at it.
