When I turn on my Sony VPH-1020Q1 projector it flickers. Not the image but the brightness or light level or something. It does this for 30-45 min and then goes away. Anybody know what this might be? Thanks to all for the help.
At that age, small cracks develop in solder connections, and also capacitors dry out. The usual would be to take the projector apart, clean connections, resolder any suspect connections in particular the power supply, and check and replace a few capacitors here and there.
Fortunately the 1020 is small, and pretty simple. Not too hard to go through if you have electronics skills. Maybe a little contact cleaner in all the pots as well to clean them up. I had one of those, nice quiet little PJ, too bad it's video only. But still a nice little unit. Very reliable.
