    Switched on after 6 mths, burning smell, lamp ok but no set-up possible. Found that a small device labelled E106 was blown, behind wher the small cooling fan is located. There seems to be a lot of these devices on this double sided mother-board. Suspect they are capacitors, they are al labelled E106 ? Need a diagram.

did the projector make a popping sound if so that lamp has shattered. the smell would be mercury and the projector will not switch on until the lamp has been reset.
depending if the projector was hot the hot glass may of stuck to the lcd screen so it may not work again.

Bulb of LG LP XG2 Multimedia Projector is too dark. We need one with at least 2500 Lumin to work together with a newer beamer

This projector is only capable of handling a 150w lamp and it only is rated at 1500ansi lumens. There is no way you can do what you are asking. other than buying a 2500ansi lumen projector

Saying no signal even when connected to laptop. but can watch dvds via dvd player. pls help thanks

Make sure that your secondary display is enabled on your laptop. If you have an ATI gpu, use the catalyst control center to detect the new display. Most laptops have a function button to enable the second display. It looks like two boxes with a slash between them. On my laptop it is the F5 key. You will have to hold the Fn button and press the key, it might take a little while to change over. Don't panic if you can't see the screen on the laptop, there are three modes: Laptop only, external only, and both. Press the key again to move to the next mode.

Good luck!

Panasonic pt-l780u projector lamp warning light comes on and lamp goes out. smell somthing burning. this is with three lamps. i am sure it's not the lamp.

the burning could be the dust on the inside burning off. blow the dust out with canned air. then check to see if the fans are spinning. after that, it's the ballast/power supply.

Dark horizontal bands appear on projection

Your matrix is failing. If the unit is under warranty, send it back.

The matrix is the bit that allows light to come through of each colour. If its failing one colour won't get through. If the circuitry is failing, more than one colour wont get through.

unfortunately, lg won't tell anyone outside of their service center how to do this. they even recommend that you send it to them. it's their way of ensuring return business. sorry.

Spares not available

FOr most service centers, the only available parts are the modules themselves. There are very few of us left that actually perform component level repairs. In the case of this type of unit, there are no component level parts available as the only "parts" supplied by LG are modules. Dep[ending upon the servicer's experience and the nature of the problem, it is possible that the module could be repaired. This would not be an "authorized" repair, but it is possible. What is the nature of the problem that warrants the requirement of the motherboard?
