    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

    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!!

How do l fix jvc rs33 super A stereo receiver overheating problem

If your JVC RS33 Super A projector is overheating, it could indicate a problem with the projector's internal cooling system or with its environmental conditions. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Clean the projector's air filter. Make sure the air filter is clean and not clogged with dust or debris. This can prevent proper airflow and cause the projector to overheat.
  2. Check the projector's ventilation. Make sure that the projector has proper ventilation and that the air intake and exhaust vents are not blocked.
  3. Check the projector's lamp. Make sure the lamp is not damaged and that it is working properly. A damaged or worn-out lamp can cause the projector to overheat.
  4. Check the projector's environment. Make sure that the projector is being used in a well-ventilated room and that the room temperature is not too high. High temperatures and poor ventilation can cause the projector to overheat.
  5. If the above steps don't solve the problem, it could indicate a more serious issue with the projector's internal cooling system or with its electronic components. It's recommended to contact the JVC customer service or a professional technician for further assistance.
It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines when performing any maintenance or repairs on the projector, to ensure the safety and proper functioning of the projector.
It's also important to check the projector's warranty status and the manufacturer's instructions to ensure that the repair or replacement will not void the warranty.
Keep in mind that troubleshooting and repairing electronic equipment can be dangerous if you are not familiar with the proper procedures. If you are not comfortable with performing the troubleshooting yourself, it's best to contact a professional technician for assistance.

Compaq MP2800 DLP Projector

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.

It stays on for 15 or 20 mins then light goes out but sound still plays with light out,then 4mins later it comes back on

Sounds likely that the projector is overheating. Try removing and carefully cleaning the filters over the air inlets. Carefully washing them in warm water and squeezing dry is usually satisfactory, but DO NOT replace in the projector and turn on until the filters have had at least 10 - 12 hours to thoroughly dry out.

your projector is detecting it is overheating, check that nothing is blocking the vents and that the fans are not clogged. If the vents and fans are dirty clean thema paintbrush and hoover. If they arent then the lamp maybe the culprit

My Epson EMP-TW20 projector has consistantly started cutting out 20 mins after being turned on, it then switches to stand by and I think the fans go on for about 5 mins. However, if I switch it straight...

clean it out with canned air. the dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. you may need to replace the temp sensor, as the constant heat may have weakened the sensor.

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.
