Epson used thermistors to measure the temperature because they are very cheap, and they do a good enough job. When I measured the resistance across the thermistor leads at the connection to the board, I had zero ohms at the intake sensor. We even watched a movie with it like this. Follow these steps to turn on the projector: 1. Looking back, I should have chose one more like 10,000ohms. To exit the slideshow, press , select Exit. I only used the first one I tried, only because it worked, not because it was the best fix.
If not, back to solution 1. I let it run for 5 minutes before I unplug the resistor to see if this is the fix, or its just a coincidence. To turn it off, you Lamp life will vary can press its Ppower button as described below, unplug it, or turn off depending upon mode selected, environmental a power switch that supplies power to the projector. Browse categories: Hide popular topics: is a place to share and discuss the latest developments, happenings and curiosities in the world of technology; a broad spectrum of conversation as to the innovations, aspirations, applications and machinations that define our age and shape our future. You could also check to see if you can specify which speakers are used in the projector and change it so that it actually sends something through the audio out connection. I justified bypassing the sensor because the intake air temperature is a little redundant compared to the exhaust air.
Unfortunately when you are seeing a yellow tint on the screen it is not the lamp. See page 63 for instructions. But failed temperature sensors seems to be a somewhat common problem on Epson projectors. Looks like we got it narrowed down! If you are connected to another image source, press the button on the remote control to go to the Slideshow program. People are throwing out much more expensive projectors than this one! Depending on your speakers, you may be able to use a standard audio cable with a stereo mini-jack connector on one end and pin jacks on the other end.
Follow these longer than 30 seconds, the tips for using the remote control: remote control stops operating to conserve battery Point the remote control at the front or back of the projector, or power. My original plan was to replace the broken thermistor with a working one from my collection of random electrical components. Electrical components are cheap, and this is a cheap fix. I think this one was 200 ohms, another shot in the dark. This may be reversed upon evidence of suitable behavior. I wrote this out of frustration with Epson. You could try a bigger or smaller resistor.
The projector goes into an overheat protection cycle, where after running for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, the bulb shuts off and all three fans ramp up to maximum speed. While these knock-off lamps appear to be a bargain, they will actually end up costing you more money in the long run since they a life than original lamps and are. Without the resistor, the projector would last maybe 5 seconds before shutting down and blasting the fans, so 5 minutes is impressive. Self-post cross-posts are not acceptable. Turns out I couldn't find a thermistor, and at this point I thought this was a long shot anyways, so instead of using a thermistor I took it one step simpler and just used a resistor.
I figured, the bulb still worked, and all three fans worked as well, so this must be a sensor problem. The fans stay on for about 2 minutes then the projector shuts down. The key here is the unit is not overheating, the bulb has been on for only moments, and the unit is cold. As soon as I pull it out, the bulb shuts off and all three fans go into high speed mode. I plugged the projector in and tested it before I put the case back on.
There is nothing as permanent as a temporary fix. A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance is dependent on temperature. Payment is expected to be made in full not more than 30 days after your order is processed. The message Replace the lamp also appears on the screen. This lets you carry a lightweight cable with you when you transport the projector see page 31.
Whereas if I connect my laptop via the other connection I can get sound out. It's possibly that the projector's analog outs don't work with anything but a simple stereo signal through the digital. If necessary, press the arrow buttons on the remote control to highlight the device you want to present from, then press the Enter button. However these are very difficult to find, and expensive. Presenting With the Remote Control. Then you can control your presentation as follows: Use the arrow buttons to move the cursor on the screen. Also it could be one of the other thermistors giving you grief.
If you want to play sound through the projector, see page 41 for instructions on connecting an audio cable. I cut the wire leads leading to the thermistor and soldered in resistor. Selecting the Color Mode The Color Mode adjusts the brightness, contrast, and color for various common viewing environments. Remove the projector lamp cover screws and place to one side. A Hello Lizzie, thank you for your question. Gently insert the new projector lamp.
Repeat offenders will be temporarily banned from one to seven days. You may also the image on screen gets darker or starts deteriorate altogether. When I test the exhaust fan it stays at a current 10. The intake starts at 10. Some users have plugged air filters, and when the filter is cleaned, the problem is corrected. You may need some trial and error. This is a failed thermistor sensor, which shuts down, and renders the whole projector useless.
