It’s important to let the projector use air to cool its components down. Air Flow is importing for cooling so make sure the intake and exhaust vents are free from obstruction.
- Do not cover or obstruct any of the air vents on the device
- Make sure the projector is not enclosed or right against a wall - it needs ventilation space all around
- Don’t place the projector on top of other electronic equipment, such as a DVD player; these also produce heat
Make nothing is obstructing the cooling fan. Listen to hear if it is working properly; get the device repaired as soon as possible if it isn’t.
If possible, don’t mount your projector in a hot section of the room; i.e. above a radiator.
You may need an additional cooling system if the room temperature is consistently hot.
If the projector is being used in a location of higher elevation you may need to turn the option for high altitude use on. This will cause the fan to operate at a higher speed which is needed for the thinner air that is found at higher elevation. You can consult the user guide for this information.
Using the projector:
- Using the projector on its brightest settings will make it hotter, shorten bulb life and use more electricity
- Do not move the projector when hot - this can cause the bulb to shatter
- Check the projectors user guide’s safety instructions to avoid problems regarding the mounting and placement of the projector.
