Question about Epson Multimedia Projectors

Epson LCD Usage

Please clarify: In the interest of extending the life of the bulb, is it best to turn the LCD projector off between a usage period of approx 20 minutes... or is it best to leave the machine on. I'm basing my query on the traditional thinking that the "surge effect" of turning the light on and off ( in a relatively short period) takes a greater toll on the bulb than leaving it on.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, in order for the extend the life of the bulb it is best to turn the projector off when not in use, it will save the 2000 approximate bulb life hours. Another thing instead of projecting in high-brightness use low brightness projecting. Low brightness has an approximate 3000 bulb life hours.

Epson PowerLite 410W projector (used for a smart board in a classroom) won't project anything or even turn on. Power button (maybe lamp indicator light? I don't really know anything about this...)...


It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.

The projector does not seem very bright it has done 1200 hours is it the bulb or something else


Most likely the bulb, although it could be the power supply or lamp ballast. Most regular bulbs are rated for between 1500 - 2000 hours. They tend get dimmer as they age, but some will stay bright until they blow. Using low intensity/Eco mode, being sure air flow/ventilation is clear and open, and allowing the machine to go through the cool down process before shutting it off will all extend the bulb life. If you put the machine in the high output mode and the intensity improves, the it's probably the bulb.

Lamp bulb indicator is red and unit will not light up


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Also, check and clean the air filters.

Hello,

If you are connecting it to a computer with a VGA cable, you may have to go into the options of the projector and set the port correctly.

Go into the menu, and select the "image" area. In here you should be able to select computer.
