Question about Optoma MovieTime DV10 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Loud Fan Noise

I have a Optoma MovieTime DV10. Last night it was playing for about 3.5 hours. I got up to go to the kitchen for 5 minutes. When I returned, I noticed a loud noise coming from the unit and a small pillow near the exhaust vent. I turned it off immediately. The unit usually gets hot, but this time it was overheated. Since then, the unit works fine with the exception of a loud fan/motor-like noise coming from it. what should I do. the unit is over a year old and I bought it from it's previous owner. I don't think it is cover by a warranty.

User-friendly, built-in DVD player, high-throw ratio lens, fast power/cool down What's Not
Fan operation is quite audible, native resolution of just 480p The Final Word
A perfect coffee table companion Notes
# This product is no longer available directly from the manufacturer. It may be available in retail and distribution channels, or second hand. The price displayed is the price at review time and the last available recommended retail price.

The DV10 has a futuristic-looking outer casing and two internal speakers located behind a silver grille mesh at the rear. Heat is removed through its side ventilation and the internal fan has a noise level of 27dB, which is comparable to a loud computer and quite distracting when watching movies at low volume. At 368 x 117 x 273mm, the unit is small enough to permanently and inconspicuously reside on a coffee table.

this is from a review .

it sounds like that the fan needs to be cleaned the sound you hear is normal but if it sounds like its racein the moder might be on its way out if you have a can of air used to clean a key bored i would try to clean it out with that if not take it to a repair place to see if they could look at the moder

Why won't my Optoma DV10 projector won't turn on?


On an Optoma DV10 if its not the lamp timer, then it might be a cooling fan that needs replacing. Take out the old one, and look-up its part number online. If you don't feel confident taking it apart, have a qualified person do this.

My Optoma DV10 works fine for 20 sometimes 45 minutes then freezes up. Bulb and fan stays on but movie just stops playing.


Hi,

All gadgets have limits and have a tendency to malfunction if over used most of the time.
You have to give sometime for it to rest too, machines and gadgets are like humans too, needing time to rest and recharge after a hardwork. If this is not your case however, it's best if you visit your provider and have it checked if it's stops without you overusing it then this should be covered by warranty.

When bulb turns on it gets a loud humming noise


It's likely the fan or the color wheel as both of these spin. I've given a suggestion for another user which in part may be applicable to you. It can be found here by using the search phrase- Blue tint on projector or by clicking my name and the appropriate topic.

Fan making noise


Are you sure its a fan, dust out the fans.
If its not the fans you may have a power supply going out and causing some induction hum in the unit. Sometimes, but rarely, through the built in speaker.
