SOURCE: Sony VPL-CX6 Projector turns itself off. No image projected.

does the "lamp/cover"-led light up? i had the same thing happening, the lamp either broke or is about to break and the projektor won't turn it on again to protect itself. if its very urgent, open the projector pull the lamp out and put it in again, it might work for 1 or 2 more times, but it is very likely to explode (usually not breaking the projector but for sure not good for it).

good luck!

The vent fan is not working but micro is. Replaced charcoal filter & reset still not working.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Exhaust fan motorIf your exhaust fan motor is not running, there are a couple of things that you can check involving the motor to locate the problem. After removing the fan motor, you can manually attempt to turn the fan blades with your hand. If the fan motor is working properly, the blades should spin effortlessly. If this does not occur and the blades are taught, the motor will need to be replaced. Secondly, the fan motor itself can burn out due to time and usage. Using an ohm meter, the exhaust fan motor should read open for continuity. If it does not, then the fan motor has expired and will need to be replaced.
  2. ThermostatAnother part that could cause the microwave exhaust fan to not work is a faulty thermostat. A thermostat gauges the air temperature, which activates the exhaust fan when required. If this part becomes flawed, the exhaust fan will not energize and the thermostat will need to be replaced.
  3. Main control boardIf your exhaust fan is still not working and the microwave fan motor, wiring, and thermostat are operating accurately, the root cause could be with the main control board. Replace the main control board.

I have a neff fan built in oven everything is working except the fan is it a matter of just replacing a new fan?

Make sure there is a supply to the fan before attempting to replace it, if there is and the fan does not work, then replace it.
If the fan element is getting hot, but the fan is not working, then you need to replace the fan motor assy.
It is a fairly straightforward repair, but remember that the fan blade assy is secured by a left hand thread, so unscrew the nut clockwise as though you were tightening it, holding the fan blades as you do it.

The fan on my Vaio vgn cr220e is not working.. what is the cost effective repair that i can do?

You can try to blow compressed air on it first. Dust might have accumulated that's why its not working. If that fails, you may want to contact your computer manufacturer for repair/depot service. Depending on your unit, it may be possible just to replace only the fan.

My car is overheating.and fan wont kick in.backfiring underhood

OK, if the fan won't work one may have to have the fans replaced,the relays, and the relay contacts depending on the severity of the problem.

I just spent $724 on repairs to my 1997 Cadillac Deville where the technician replaced the fan motors, the relays, and replaced the relay contacts at the harness due to burnt contacts there.

I was experiencing a passenger side (larger) fan that was working intermittently.

The technician discovered that the fans would work intermittently when the fan relays (3 of them) were shook.

I guess the heat got to them over the years.

Good luck on this repair.

When booting up get Fan Error. If I hit Esc then computer will then boot up, although very slowly.

The fan needs to be replaced but if you can get away with just pressing escape that may work for a while. it is probably not slow because of the fan. Try to reduce programs that run and startup and (use autoruns utility) and run virus scans. Fan replacement is a difficult repair but it can be done, if you look for free repair guides online you will find something. I work for company that does Laptop repairs in NYC and we do this repair frequently.

SP4805 Fan Issue

the fans in these models do not have a speed sensor wire to let the main board know to turn off the lamp to not risk overheating. so if the fan goes, the lamp remains on. however, if the lamp exploded, check the vents for dust. there is a temp sensor that will shut down the projector if it gets too hot. if the vents are clogged, blow the dust out of the projector with canned air. the dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. easiest way to repair the fan w/o buying a part: splice the fan wires together. they can share voltage. if the 80mm fan does not work at all after that, replace the fan (pn: 526-0192-xx).
