Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Projector keeps switching itself OFF

I bought my projector new, 8 years ago. It is only used for home viewing occasionally (For general programmes the normal TV is used).
When switched ON it comes on showing a good Picture for about 40 seconds then just shuts down. On switching it on again the same thing happens, and goes OFF again.The small window at the back displays (Error F8).
My supplier (Not a Runco Specialist) tell me that it needs to go to GIBRALTAR for repairs (I live in the UK) He also tells me that as it cant be upgraded to receive Hi Def Pictures (something I would have liked) because of its age. Therefore its not worth repairing.
It's dissapointing that Runco dont seem to have a sympathetic After Sales Service.I paid £20,000+ for something that technically is obsolete after 8 years of selective use

    Thanks for your reply.
    The model is a DTV 950 Super HDTV
    with 3 C.R.T Lenses.
    The fan sounds O.K as it can be heard winding itself up on initial switch on and
    picking up more speed as the unit gets started,which it always has done.There is no change in the fan's sound or motor speed (as if a belt had broken)

    Well depend on which parts are broken, Runco Projector Lamps, fans and other parts can still be found on the market.
    Runco website is not working, I do not know if they are still operative.
    You can try requesting any other replacement to:
    Runco International

    1195 NW Compton Drive

    Beaverton, OR 97006

    Phone: 1.800.237.8626
    I suggest giving them a call in US to know if there is anu authorized repair centre that can deal replacements in UK.

    Regards

    Here is service manual for 940/950
    Runco does not make public, the information related to error codes, therefore there is no way to find out what problem is from error code. This was probably the main problem your technician encountered, as parts are normally shipped worldwide.
    The fact that the fans are running and making usual noise does not necessarily means that it cannot be an overheating problem, the fan ball bearing may be defective and not pumping enough air, or the temperature sensor may be faulty.
    To find out if it is overheating the technician should leave it on with case opened, and eventually with an additional fan pointed toward the board, and see if this makes any difference in shutdown time.
    The only way the technician has to spot a problem ( possibly he already did this), is testing ICs, capacitors etc inside the projector.
    My suggestion is contacting Runco and finding out an authorized tech in your area. Or asking your technician to obtain a service manual from Runco, as they do not distribute service manuals to private users.

    Regards

Hi,

It sounds like the projector itself has a fault. Sadly it's often uneconomic to repair budget projectors which are out of warranty when the cost of repair is compared to that of replacement. You should speak to Optoma support and see who their local agent is, and then ask for a quote.

UK support can be found here

They will usually charge a fee to have a look and then they'll offer an estimate for repair.

sounds like the colorwheel. the bearings are starting to go on it due to excessive dust and heat. since it's a motor, it's bound to wear out eventually. it will need to be replaced. you could buy the part and do it yourself or send it in for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good and they're an infocus service center. www.avsolutionsny.com.
the lamps should be good for 2000 hours. if you use it that much per year, three lamps is normal. but it's best to keep the projector clean and free of dust to extend the life of the lamps. dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. heat will kill the lamp and possibly overheat other circuits and components. use canned air to blow it out.

Broken lamp on Sharp XV Z9000 and projector not switching on


if the lamp blew during use, the projector was not able to complete the shut down mode. it will turn on by itself until it does. replace the lamp, let it warm up, and press power to initiate the shut down. after it powers down, reset the lamp timer and turn it on. all should be well.

Projector stays on for 3 minutes then turns itself off


Hi Chipped Rice

The loud buzzing noise you heard was the colourwheel that gave in.

Now what happens is , the machine will turn on and go through the whole cycle and as soon as the colourwheel is supposed to start doing it's stuff the Projector will switch off because there is no response from the coulourwheel itself.

You will have to replace the colourwheel unfortunately as it cannot be fixed.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Projector Lamp


Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.
