Question about Epson PowerLite 3LCD Projector

1 Answer

It is giving off a burning smell when I turn it on, and though there is some light coming out out of the lense, it is not enough to project onto the screen. Neither the temperature or the lamp light are coming on. The bulb has about 50 hours of use

Take the lamp out and check if it looks ok. look inside the lamp cavity and check the first optical components that get the light, for any damage.
is the air filter clean.
Next steps will require you to unplug the unit, take off the cover and look at all the optical parts for overheating, and also if there is any obvious place where damage has occured to the electronics etc.

Y wd-73c9 tv trns on no picture just a clicking noise when turned on

The color wheel spins at 10,000 rpm so there's a good chance that the bearings will go out, the heat and burnt on dust that gathers on the lenses and the class panels will be enough to cause mayhem with your color wheel. All the parts inside the light box need to be cleaned at least 1 time a year to keep it working properly. Much care must be taken when doing this it's very easy to destroy the wheel if it falls to the ground it's done. I suggest cleaning it over a carpeted area and keeping it on the floor while working. Place a piece of newspaper down over the carpet to keep fibers out of the area. Anything that gets sealed inside the area after cleaning will be burned onto the lenses and the problems will not be cured.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze

If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

My picture went out on my Akai PT5492S, which had a burning smell. I opened the back and saw no burnt componets, but the timer light flashes when I turn the set on. Is the flashing timer light a error...

Chances are real good that coolant fluid has leaked onto the Main bd or the Power Supply/Deflection bd or both shorting them out. The coolant can leak from one to all three CRT's.

Samsung hdtv HLP5085wx no image. Smelled something burning and sparking, turned off the tv. Tried turning it back on = have sound, NO image!

OMG! Dude, your screen is just plain fried. You don't need a new screen though, You just need a new bulb for it. See, behind the screen is a light bulb (unless your T.V. is plasma screen), sometimes two or three, and that burning smell was the bulb blowing (like when you need to replace a light bulb in a lamp or something). I don't know where you can find a new bulb, but once you replace it everything should be fine.

Burning smell when ac is turn on

well as for the ford man sorry to here that. I am a holden man myself, but it is most likly that your fan switch is on its way out if you have a test light just pop the switch out and see if you have power to your high setting if not replace your switch. And for mgauthier I would suggest you just reroute your overflow pipe so it overflows onto the ground not onto hot metal parts. But you shouldn't have coolant coming out your overflow all the time. As for burning smell it was probably the switch burning out and failing.

Burning smell

.. any heat element like bulb must be installed exactly and that means its wattage, voltage and physical characteristics.. and also make sure that you have replaced Fan blowers and making it sure that it runs properly when the unit is on. as it was said also make sure that you do check the light that travels thru lenses and filters that is not block by dirt, cables or any other foreign materials.

I suggest you sit down for this one! Even a small amount of any liquid on set's internals can reak havoc. What you smelled were components shorting out and possibly burning. Depending on where the water spilled, you may have just one PC board fried, but many circuits are interconnected, which means possible cascade damage to others. Never place plants anything containing liquid on electronic equipment.

Sounds like somethings over heating if you smell something. The wise thing to do if you know nothing at all about the tv repair is to call someone unless you feel convident enough to open it and look around very carefully and see if you can describe whats over heating or burning as if you keep turning on the set and it keeps smelling it will burn something out thats not burned out now.
