    i have same problem with my dell 3400m projector, and it will cut off every 15min, i just change the bulb and same problem still happen

  • polywog_95 Sep 19, 2008

    I have an InFocus projector that is abt 3yrs old, however, we do not use it that often. I too have started having that same problem. It will run a movie abt 30min. tops then just shut off. I don't think its the bulb because the bulb life is approx. 2000 hrs and I have only used abt 200hrs. I am lost as to why it is getting so hot and shutting off so quickly....any suggestions?

    Mine shuts off after less than a minute of run time and the projector says it only has 787 hours on it. Indeed turning it upside down takes care of the problem but I'd like to see if there is a better way of doing this.

I have a HP VP6111 projector that works fine on a table top but overheats ( overheating ) when turned upside down and hung from my ceiling. My solution...I went to Circuit City and bought two 80mm computer fans. I also purchased a 12V power supply from Radio Shack. I put one fan on front of my projector and the other on the back of the projector and wired them into the 12V power supply. I mounted both fans with velcro. The front fan pushes air and the rear fan pulls air. The projector now runs fine without shutting off. The fans are 12V and push 34 cubic feet per minute of air. I am very happy with this solution.

After lots of research on this, the problem appears to be with the bulb. Once the bulb gets 'tired' the filament becomes 'stranded' and the running temperature increases massively. The safety mechanism of the projector cuts in before serious damage occurs. Interestingly, using big external fans didn't solve the problem, but turning the projector upside down does (presumerly the heat sensor is at the top of the projector). Solution: Buy a new bulb, or for what bulbs cost, but a new projector!!

The compaq keeps shutting itself down... I turn it on... It turns itsel***. What should I do?


The device is either not receiving enough power or overheating. Overheating damage can be permenant.
Get one of those compressed air cans and blow all vent out with device turned off. Wait a while and try again. I honestly do not think this will fix it but it is what ails you.

If the projector is not getting a source it might go on standby maybe check where you plug it in.
Projectors require quite a bit of power and should be on a single loop/outlet not hooked up to a powerbar with more things on it.

Hope that helped.

I have an Compaq MP1400 projector not working


Hello :

1:Remove the lamp from the projector. Ensure that it has no cracks, discoloration or "smoky" appearance.

2:Try removing and reseating the lamp, or to try another lamp.

3:Reset your lamp timer. Most projectors have no way of knowing if you physically have replaced your lamp or moved it out . They rely on the user resetting the lamp timer

4:Pull the lamp back out of the unit, give is a brisk shake and reseat the lamp. Occasionally there is some buildup on the lamp contacts or filament during manufacturing.

5:Are the input and output vents blocked or obstructed in any way? That could cause overheating problem and what you see with your projector is one of it's symptoms .

6:Are the filters dirty or clogged? Most manufacturers will recommend filter cleaning on a monthly basis depending on usage .After cleaning the filter always remember to reset your projector .

7:Remove any extension cords, power strips and/or surge suppressors. Many current model projectors will not even try to ignite the lamp if they detect drops or fluctuation in voltage supplied to the unit. This is a safety feature to reduce stress on the lamp.

PLEASE RATE !

Why would my projector just shut off?


This is probably one of three causes: 1. The lamp has reached the end of its life. 2. The projector is overheating because of dust buildup/position/etc. 3. The projector has an actual problem with its internal components. The lamp on a projector is very special and most likely won't just blow out like a regular light bulb. When a projector lamp fails, it's more like it can't sustain a burn, but probably won't have a lot of trouble starting one. The projector will probably have an indicator or what have you to indicate end of lamp life. If your projector has an air filter, make sure it's clean. Make sure the projector has enough space around it for proper ventilation and that it's on a flat, smooth surface (no carpet). If you rule out lamp life and overheating, you'll probably want to leave the problem to the manufacturer or a professional electronics repair person.

Cinego is randomly shutting down


if it is overheating, blow out the projector with canned air. excessive dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. also, make sure all of the fans are working properly. if it's cleaned out and the fans are running, you may have a main board issue.

Infocus IN1 Gaming Projector


Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius. 

The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.

hi all... i have this projector and it boosts up flashes the blue screen and sometimes the projected image too. then goes to standby mode.

I have managed to keep it going enough to see the problem for myself. Here is what i did.. lye the projector on its left side while a cool blower blows through the left side of the lamp housing. fire it up and it will stay on. I went to the menu and did a factory reset as well as lamp hours reset. checked the lamp hours and it was at zero. so its never going to stay on for long for one reason.

As the lamps get older the emit more heat and therefore cause the unit to shutdown. so if you want it to work your going to have to order that lamp. The cheapest i found is from austrailia link off ebay below.

last link is for the manual found in this forum but not clear on how to get it.

Hope you get a good result bulb on order.
