after that its not getting started .even the standby LED bulb also not showing any sign of power ..
do this projector having any fuse ?? its under warranty and bought from dubai..can i get the warranty in india ???
I have an Optoma pj (an HD66) and have worked on several other models as well. I have no clue about your warranty being honored or not in india, but I can tell you this - more than 50% of the time when you hear a weird or loud noise from a pj - it's the cooling fan.
If the fan blades got blocked or shifted off their axis somehow, they can hit other components inside the pj, and that's the noise. The tolerances inside a pj are VERY close. A fan obstruction will shut the pj down almost immediately. If your handy with a screwdriver, and don't care about voiding the warranty(if it can't be honored in india anyway - what have you got to lose?) take off the top shell and see if the fan spins freely.
If your NOT handy with a screwdriver, or you DO care about voiding the warranty - call Optoma.
Thank you very much sir,, am planning to open up the cover and check as you adviced .am freindly with screw drivers anyway...soo the probable cause will be the fams fins got jammed and its cutting the power supply ...thank you once again...
