Hi, I presume you have tried using "1234" as the administrator password and this is not working? If that is the case and you have tried the universal password then I am afraid you will have to contact Acer as there are no means of resetting the password without thier help.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(

Thank you for using FixYa

My Acer projector P5260E started gaining tiny white spots that multiplied over time and now has almost completely covered 40% of my screen. I've installed a new lamp and still have the white spots. Not as...

I have the same problem. All of a sudden there are plenty white dots all around the screen. As if 1/3 of the pixels are burnt. It cannot be the lamp because it is still as bright as before. It must be the internal screen or whatever. The "Troubleshooting" section of the user manual does not mention such thing.

Acer projector P3150 locked with passwd

Read some Acer manual and it says:

Administrator Password

The "Administrator Password" can be used in both the "Enter
Administrator Password" and "Enter Password" dialog boxes.
• Press "Play" to change the "Administrator Password".
• The factory default of "Administrator Password" is "1234".
If you forgot your administrator password, do the following to
retrieve the administrator password:
• An unique 6-digit "Universal Password" which is printed on
the Security Card (please check accessory in the box). This
unique password is the number which will be accepted by
projector anytime no matter what the Administrator
Password is.
• If losing this security card and number, please contact with an
Acer service center.

Acer P3250 will not acccept password...

I found a solution that worked for me:

1. Turn on the projector

2. Press "Power > Left > Left > MENU" (Opens the system menu)

3. Choose "RD Menu"

4. Choose " EEPROM Restore" (the projector turn off and the power lamp blink red for about 1 minut. Then it stops)

5. Turn on the projector again and it should work again
