This is a safety feature because the lamps can get extremely hot and cause a fire. Look behind the set and make sure that the grill that covers the fan is clear. Vacuum the fan area and with the set unplugged, move the fan with your fingers to make sure that it spins freely. If it does not, it is time to replace it. There are sensors that will detect air movement as well as the fan spinning. If either sensor detects a problem, the set will be prevented from starting.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Dell 3200mp lamp


are both of the lamps the same? have you installed it correctly in the socket. you might need to do a cold start for your projector. unlpugg it and try to wait for 5 minutes before plugging it again and turning it on. one your projector detected that a new lamp is intalled, it should work fine now. but if its still not working, you might want to try and replace the new lamp again. sometimes this happens.

hope this helps.

Dell 3200MP projector. Lamp warning light comes on after approx 30 minutes of use and the lamp turns off. Bulb is new. I am not sure what the warning light is indicating.


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.

Becomes very hot within minutes of turning on.


There is a 400 watt mercury vapour lamp. Provided the fan is running it should get fairly warm to the point of almost too hot to hold your hand on. If you can smell burning plastic smell you should refer the unit to local service department for testing.

Overheats and shuts down after about 20 minutes


Usually when a CPU overheats it shuts down and after it cools down you can re-boot it again.
Continual overheating will eventually cause the CPU to fail.

The overheating is usually caused by blocked vents and or dust build up on the heatsink and/or fan. Remove this dust from the heatsink and fan and this should fix your overheating problem, unless you have a faulty fan, in this case you will need to replace the fan.

Dell 1100mp "Temp" Light


I had the same problem and fixed it today. The fan is 70 x 70 x 20mm. I could not find the exact one, but 70 x 70 x 15 works just fine and I was able to find that fan at a Micro Center store for $8.99. The fans should be blowing air out from the front of the machine, not blowing in on the lamp.
