Typically a lamp will not make much noise other than a slight buzz. I would check the fan to be sure that the fan turns freely and that the venting for it is clear. If that is not the problem, please try to describe what kind of noise you are hearing. That should help to narrow down further the possible problem areas.

Yes, that can solve the problem because there's also a possibility that the lamp is the one that is causing the noise..

Hope that helps........

The projector lamps always burning out. I think, the cooling system does not work?How does the projector work?


Make sure not to shut down the projector after use. Wait until the fan stops. The fan is to cool down the bulb during and after use. Once the fan stops, then you can shut it down.

Infocus projector makes a whistling sound then shuts off


The whistling is nothing but noise. You need to open the projector to confirm the source of noise. It can either be mechanical or electronic. Possibility of mechanical noise sources are colour wheel (a 4 colour wheel near the lamp), blower fans & exhaust fans. All these are rotating things. If any one of them is jammed, then so as to try to rotate at full speed creates noise. To reduce mechanical noise it is necessary to service them. Dust is one of the main reason. For electronic noise check SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply) & lamp ballast (electronic choke).The electronic noise is a high frequency noise generated by such devices. Are you using the projector in dusty envionment?

Dear Sir, I have a NEC LT 260 K Lcd projector. The lamp of the lcd was busted.I replaced it with a new lamp. After replacing the lamp the lamp is not lighting when projector is put ON, I think the...


the clicking sound hopefully is the high voltage trying to start the lamp, but for some reason there may be a connection problem between the lamp and the projector power supply.
take the lamp out.

look at the lamp and check that the 2 connecting plugs are ok.
then look inside the projector at the power sockets that connect to the lamp (when it's installed).
check that the pins are not damaged or pushed down too far to prevent the lamp plugs making a proper connection with the power sockets in the unit.

My projector will go off after 5-10 minutes, started with longer periods like 30mins or more... Sometimes it worked without any problems. It has a new lamp on it and Im not sure what can be the problem?...


hi,
First of all check the lamp hour of your projector. Just reset it and try again. for resetting the lamp hour do the following.
1.Switch on the projector
2.select menu and the select lamp setting
3. In the lamp setting menu select lamp Reset and execute the same

After doing this if the problem remains then you have to check two things. first you have to check the lamp cooling fan of your projector. If the lamp cooling fan of your projector is faulty or it runs in a low speed this problem can occur. Another possibility is the faulty temperature sensor. you have to check the temperature sensor near the lamp. normally a senor with two wire fitted on the lamp Cage.
if fan is suspected then remove the fan and try to oil the fan and the re fix it and try again. for oiling the fan watch the following video.
The video is for oiling a pc fan you can follow the same to oil the lamp cooling fan
ok

Lamp burn out 3 time in 16months


clean out your projector. if there is a lot of dust and/or no air flow, the lamp will overheat and die. it needs to cool. use canned air and blow out any and all dust from inside the projector. make sure the fans work. also, don't buy lamps from "bob's lamps". get it from a reputable benq dealer.

Make sure the air intake filter has been removed, dissassembled and cleaned. Reset the lamp timer after replacing the lamp. Confirm allo fans are operational, and don't forget to allow for the cool down time after the unit is turned off. AC must remain connected for the unit to cool down the lamp after the unit is turned off.

Fan noise loud, bulb burst. Replaced with new bulb. Noise even louder! Unit shuts itself off.


the bulb may have burst from overheating from a fan not working to cool it down. and it can be replaced. it does take, however, a while to replace it because you have to take half of it apart. but make sure it's the fan first. take the lamp door off and remove the lamp. use something small and thin to push in the switch that the lamp door usually activates. turn the projector on and see if the lamp fan and the colorwheel (the multicolor glass disk) are spinning. if the fan spins, the noise may be from the colorwheel motor going bad. the fan can be purchased through an infocus authorized service center. check the website for the closest one. but the colorwheel for the x1 cannot be purchased seperately from the optical engine, and that costs a fortune. but here is the part number for the 80mm fan- 526-0152-00.

NEC LT260 PROJECTOR NOISE


To open this projector, you need to undo six screws at the underside of the case. That means you have to turn the projector upsidedown.
Pls note that one of these scews is a little hidden under the carrying handle.
After removing the screws, return the projector to it's normal 'up-side' up, standing position.
Remove the bulb cover srews and remove the bulb cover.
Lift up the top cover carefully starting from the front then all together.
The cooling fan is mounted very near the bulb assembly.
Carefully check the fan blades for any obtacles, wires or even a broken fan blade, that could be causing the noise.
