    Good question. I'm having the exact same problem. I've owned mine for 3 years and the only time that would happen is when I had the door shut and the room was full of lots of people. Now I'm getting the message after every 15-25 minutes. I put a fan in the room and it seemed to have helped but then It gets really cold in the room and that's no way to watch movies.

    I'm in the same boat. Three years with it never occurring, and now it is a regular problem. Maybe it has something to do with the bulb or the internal fan. Possibly just some dust build up.

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.

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.

PJD 5111 Viewsonic projector shuts down after 10minutes?


Hi! I think it is the time to remove the cover and check for air filters blocked with dust.

When this happens, air doesn't flow freely through the projector and result in overheating, which leads to automatic shutdown.

When i first turn it on the message (projector over heated will automatically shut off lamp) comes up and then shuts off after 2 mins


You have an overheating problem.To solve it

1) Ensure that there are clear air pathways around the projector

2) Clean the air filters.

3) Ensure that the fans are running. If the fans don't run the projector won't fire it.

It is likely that cleaning the filters will solve your porblem.

The projector is starting up but after warming up it shuts itself off. It is not the a problem with the filter, lamp seating or an overheating issue.


Does the lamp actually light up and project? If not, it's probably a dead bulb. Are there any flashing lights that might be displaying an error code? How dow you know it's not overheating? Remove the filter and give it a good cleaning. Some projectors measure airflow and, even though the heat hasn't built up, the projector shuts down because it predicts overheating will occur due to insufficient airflow.

My Acer PH530 overheats and shuts down after 15 minutes.


Mine does the same. When it was still under warranty I kept sending it in to get it fixed, but Acer never fixed the problem (rather they caused more problems). I sent it in for repairs 4 or 5 times, but eventually the warranty expired (after they told me they would extend it from the dates of the repairs). I haven't found a solution. If you do please let me know. Anyway, I don't recommend this projector to anyone else. AND, I certainly don't recommend Acer's customer service. Their warranty is worthless.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).
