    Just to say when this unit is in standby it makes one heck of a whine, quite hi pitched...so im forced to turn it off as its too much,

    is this ok(well i mean usual) or is somthing up?

    Also get a clicking from the lense area for about the first 5mins its on, about every 15 seconds( bit like a car engine when its cooling, so i wonder if this is a heat expansion noise?)

    Any idears?

    Gandley,

    I would have a word with your dealer in the first instance.

    He should be able to check the unit for you if you have any issues.

    Gandley,

    The PSU does emit a whine when in standby, the power supply is fully energised whilst in this mode. This noise is normal and should not be too intrusive, although we always recommend the projection to be switched off when not in use.
