Projector Pop

Post#1 » Tue Sep 24, 2019 1:24 pm

Hi All

Wondering if someone can point me in the right direction.
I haven't used my v1.2 for 6 or 8 months.
I switched the power on tonight, the projector powered up for approx 2 or 3 seconds, it went pop and then dead.
I didn't get as far as turning the lamp on or anything like that.
I haven't opened it up yet to have a look but any ideas welcome, anyone had similar happen? PSU?

Thanks in advance

Julian

Just a little up date, should I be more worried or not?
The RCD tripped out on the consumer unit for the sockets in the workshop. I only just noticed.
The projector powers up and stays powered, I will do a test tomorrow and see what happens.
I would still like to understand what happened before I leave it running unattended.
Thanks
Julian

I suspect when the lamp blew it also tripped your RCD. If concerned unplug the projector.
