So after a hiatus I decided to attack my Marquee 8000 projector and get it running again. When last working, it had run for a while, then it would shut down and suddenly come back on again. I didn't want to continue operating it in this condition, so I pulled the plug and its been down for a little while.
Anyway, I spoke to Tim in PHX who was nice enough to let me burn a few minutes of his time, and he thought I might have a problem with a fan failure. Based on our conversation, I was planning to concentrate on the LVPS fans first, and then move on to the belly fans.
I attempted to power up today and see if I could observe the operation of my LVPS fans. I got nothing. No "whoosh", no lights, nothing.
I pulled the LVPS and thought while I had it out I'd clean it up. I then opened it for a visual inspection and fuse F5 was blown. So, my question is what might cause this fuse to blow and what should I do next? Do I replace the fuse or is the fact that it blew an indication that my LVPS is shot and should be replaced? Any help would be appreciated.
