Take the top off and check to see that all of the fans are plugged in to the main board. There should be a wide plug for the main double fan and a smaller plug for the fan at the rear of the optical engine. If they are plugged in, leave the top off and turn the projector on using the remote. Check to see if all fans are on. If all of the fans are on, look thru the little **** in the top of the main board to see if the colorwheel is spinning. If all are working, shut the projector down and check the wiring from the double fans to make sure they are routed thru the notch cut into the top of the fan housing. The 2 wires should be side by side passing thru the notch. If they are on top of each other then this could be causing downward pressure on the fan housing when the top cover is in place causing the fans not to spin. Also the 2 fins inside the top cover that look like tail fins on a plane can be snapped off and discarded because they have always just gotten in the way when putting the top back on and really serve no purpose. Now, if the small fan in the back works and the double fans do not, I would try and replace with new fans because that would be cheapest. The same goes for the small fan in the rear. It is always cheapest to see if the fans themselves are bad first. If you know the fans are good for sure then unfortunately the main board has to be replaced. Also, if the clorwheel does not spin freely that will cause the projector to shutdown as well. Usually when the colorwheel doesn't spin it is because there is a screw or plastic debris from a broken part of the top or bottom case lodged underneath it. This also could be a problem for fans not spinning too. If the foot of your projector is broken a piece of the shaft could have become stuck between a fan blade and the fan housing or any plastics on the projector that have broken for that matter could become lodged. A good way to tell if there is something loose inside is to shake the unit before you take the top off. Read this again and again to make sure you understand how easy this could be to fix if the wires are not routed the right way or if a piece of plastic is stuck somewhere. It could be that simple. Good luck.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi eclipse and my radiator fans run from startup a few minutes after shut off.It affects heat until higher rpms.i need better heat and quicker.

Here are a couple of thoughts on this problem:

1. Just for fun and giggles, it might be a good idea to have the thermostat checked one more time. I know it is a new thermostat but you never known if a thermostat may have failed even right out of the box. It is possible that thermostat could be shot, even thought it was new. I know it is a long-shot, but it never hurts to give it a try.
2. Check the fan sensors. The Eclipse has used an electric, rather than mechanical, fan for some time. It is possible over time that the start and stop sensors can go out of tune and that they can raise your fan's run rate on starting, cruising and idling. In this case, the mechanic is right in that the higher speed is causing the coolant to be cooled off more quickly than it should and the result is that your vehicle's cooling system is causing problems for your Eclipse's heater sensors. If the sensors don't get information that the coolant flowing through their portion of the cooling system isn't the right temperature then the heater won't kick off and all that will happen is that the heater will wait until it senses the coolant is the right temperature.

My MacBook Pro 13" Overheated, should I change fans?

Any more fans and it might become a drone :-)
I think your problem is the battery. And yes, the components are suffering by the heat as are your legs.

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude

Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

Dell PE1800 psu wont swith off...Computer powers down but psu fan continues to run. Have to pull the power plug to shut it down.

Sounds like the PSU is overheating. Some PSU's are designed to keep the fan running to cool it down even after system shut down. I would let the fan run after shutdown to see how long it takes to shut itself off. If there are no environmental issues tat are causing overheating you might want to consider replacing the PSU.

Hi, I had the same problem on my Samsung.

I removed the rear cover and cleaned the cooling fans, there were (2), it has worked fine ever since.

Be careful of course working with electrical boards.
