Question about Acer PD100 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

ACER PD125 multimedia projector

My Acer PD125 projector was working perfectly but has been out of use for 6 months. When I connect it now, I get:- 1. "ACER - Empowering People" screen, then 2. After a short delay the message "The Lamp is approaching the end of its useful life at full power ........." is displayed for a short time, then 3. The initial screen returns, together with a "No Signal" message. After this warm up none of the controls on the actual machine nor the the remote controller, except for the power button, will do anything. What can I do about this?

None of the controls on the device or remote work, except for power on and off. even tried letting it cool off then cutting power (unplugging) and see if that might get itt going, no luck.

    saying the lamp has reach the end of it life, If the lamp is under one year old you can go into the main meno and reset the timing devise, just as if you replaced the lamp. It will stop giving you that notice.



    If it is over 600 hours old you might need to replace the lamp first.



    Make sure if you tilt the projector that you let it sit horizonal at least a couple of hours before you turn it on. There is a safety equilibrium built into the unit.

SOURCE: New lamp, still says "Lamp Approaching End of Life" message

Did you reset the lamp hours in the menu? I believe it checks lamp life by how many hours it has been used.

SOURCE: Controls not working

This is apparently a common fault and the unit must be returned to a service centre. Theyll put in a new motherboard for it and unless its under warranty this might actually be more expensive than buying a new unit.

No LCD connectivity


Hello, I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did: 1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer. 2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device. I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector. I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.
