Projector Fan Repair

By Projector Repair
Projector fans ensures that the machines keeps working at peak performance throughout its life span.  Beside ensuring a source of clean power, the second most important thing is ensuring clean and cool air flow. Projectors bulbs produce intense heat. Keeping it cool requires constant air flow
There are generally 3 different types of fan in a standard DLP, LCD or LCOS projector. A set cools the ballast,  an air intake fan for the chassis as well as an exhaust fan, and another for cooling the lamp. The chassis fan helps in sucking out hot air generated by the lamp. Some DLP and LCOS projectors also have fans near the lenses assembly to cool the DLP chip.
If any of these fans are defective, a projector may not power up at all. Where they are clogged with dust and soot, the projector will start to overheat. Overheating can result in unexpected shutdown, burnt lamp, and total failure of the projector.

Colour Wheel Replacement

By Projector Repair

When the color wheel is broken, the projector will be noisy. An outright malfunctioning color wheel will actually prevent the projector from booting since the boot sequence requires a spinning color wheel before the lamp gets energized.

White Dots on Projector Image Repair

By Projector Repair

Projectors equipped with digital micro-mirror device will fail after a period of use. The length of time depends on the environment where the projector is being used. The hotter the environment, the earlier the projector will fail. When it starts to fail, you may notice snowy dots or stars on projected images. Once this anomaly starts, it is irreversible. Images will gradually degrade until the whole screen gets covered with dots.

We can now repair this fault and give your projector a new life again. All repairs are with standard 3 months warranty but once repaired, the machine is guaranteed to work as new for up to 3 to 4 years, depending on the environment
This is a complex job, not for a DIY enthusiast.

Advantages and Disadvantages to DLP Projectors

DLP projectors require less maintenance than LCD projectors because they have a filter-free and sealed chip design, which means dust can’t settle on the chip and cause an image spot. They are effectively immune to color decay. Furthermore, they are not subject to the misalignment that can occur in LCD projectors with a three-panel design, which require each panel to be in perfect position to combine the image at the proper angle.
DLP projectors are not readily compatible with zoom lenses or lens shift functions, This result in poor viewing range. As such they are best suited to smaller environments.
