Question about Acer PD120D Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Won't power up at all

My church has an Acer pd120d projector with at most, 500 hours on the bulb. It won't power on at all, no lights, no fan activity, nothing. Acts like it isn't even plugged in. If the bulb is shot would it act this way or would there at least be some indicator lights operating?

There is a chance that it is fuse protected inside.
When a filament-equipped lamp fails, it can create a momentary surge; you've probably seen this when a standard tungsten bulb flashes very bright in the process of dying completely.

It may contain information about any fuse it uses.

A flashing red light came on my acer projector pd120d but it did not stay on it displayed the power, temp and lamp


Projector bulbs generate alot of heat. Make sure the vents are not blocked or dirty. Check the fan to make sure it is operating properly. Hope this helps.

It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.

After bulb burns out during church service and fan is running when power is turned off and bulb is replaced. Projector will not power back up.


Hi, I would suggest that you give it more time to cool down in the future, that is why bulb burned.
There could be more heat damage to projector. Check for reset botton and push carefully. listen for click. Look at main switch with more detail (worn out) Bring to be repaired. Good luck.

If your church recently purchased it, it would be better to refund your money or get a replacement. Its somewhat difficult to find parts for projectors, and when you do, its usually cheaper to replace the whole unit.

Fan Failure Error


the temp sensor probably wore out when the fan did. just replace the sensor. usually located on the lamp housing or near the fans. looks like a transistor.

PROJECTOR POWERS DOWN


This would appear to be a bulb that has reached end of life -- or the projector thinks that it is because of hours. Usually most bulbs are 1000 or 2000 hours. Depending on your projector there are different ways of checking bulb life hours -- if you Google your projector model number and "bulb life" you will usually get a post on how to check these hours. Also, if it is a new bulb and you haven't reset the hours counter, it may need to be reset (however you also don't want to wait too long before changing a bulb that has reached EOL since they can and do explode sometimes taking out the projector with it).

Shrinking Screen Display


It can be a problem with teh bulb...you may want to make sure that the fan is not shutting down when you power off the projector becsue that may shorten the life of the bulb,...the fan should remain on for a while to continue cooling off the bulb....it probably won't hurt to have use another fan pointing to the projector while in use...
