In my setup I have a JVC RS2 plugged into a UPS (uninterrupted Power Supply)
then plugged in the power socket installed inside my roof.
Last night I had a power cut. One of those annoying ones, just a second.
Now my player, AVR, Power Amp and conditioner turned off and then back on.
No worries there. All okay.
On my projector. The UPS was suppose to turn to battery backup so that if the
power was permanently off I could power it down properly. Saving the lamp.
What happened in reality was the UPS just turned itself completely off.
No power or battery power. Useless.
It took me 25 minutes to get up in the roof turn it back On. Find out
the battery was fully charged and could have given me power.
So it was a complete waste of time. Actually it was more of a problem.
If it wasn't there I could have just turned the projector back On and it
would only have missed out on a few seconds of fan.
I got a few questions for you guys.
Is a UPS necessary?
Could I just use a decent power conditioner? I have a spare one.
I figured if it is a small power cut. I can just turn the projector back
On immediately. That shouldn't effect the lamp in such a small time.
If I had a long power cut. Couldn't I just open the Lamp housing and use
a hand held fan to cool it down for a couple of minutes?
It is basically what the projector does when it shuts down anyway.
What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance.
