Question about Radio Shack Cinego D-1000 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Flashing red light

Sometimes when I start up the Cinego, the projector's power button immediately or within a few seconds starts flashing red. Other times it will interrupt itself while projecting, switch off the lamp, and flash the red light. The button flashes red for a few minutes and then the projector turns itself off.

This only happens sometimes; the projector can play for hours in a completely normal manner.

    I figured out how to fix the problem. After reading a lot of related Q and A, I decided that it might be an overheating problem. Somewhere there had to be an obstruction of the circulation of air. I blew into every heating vent on the unit, thoroughly, and haven't had a problem since. No red flashing light. No automatic shutdowns. It is clear that the ventilation path can be obstructed by dust or whatever. If there is a filter that could be cleaned I don't know how to access that, and the instructions steer the user away from trying to do anything except replace the bulb when necessary.

A Flashing Red ON/STANDBY LED means one of the following
2 Flashes - The internal temprature is high. Check the air holes are unobstructed.
4 Flashes - The fan is broken
6 Flashes - The internal electrical system has failed.
There is no entry in the manual for 12 red flashes.

Power light flashin orange, status light flashing red on WT610 NEC


if the status light is flashing .5 seconds on and 2.5 seconds off - you need to replace the lamp cover correctly.
if the status light is flashing .5 seconds on and .5 seconds off in 2 - 6 cycles the error is: 2 cycles - the projector is overheated. Move the projector to a cooler location, or/and remove dust in the light path. 3 cycles - the power unit is not working correctly. 4 cycles - the fans are not working correctly 5 cycles - lamp fails to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on again.

My cinego shuts down


There are two fans on the right side. If one stops working, the Cinego will have the symptoms you have described. You need to send it in for repair. A local Radio Shack will tell you where to send it.

Cinego D-1000 red light flashing


Looking at it from the front of the projector so it would be the left side. I went according the the projector's fan air intake and then blowing it out to keep cool. It worked fine. Good luck.
