    150hrs on my AE500 and I am getting a clacking sound from the fan, it is intermittant but driving me insane. Any ideas how to stiop it? Sounds like the fan needs oiling or is loose?

    Just read on google that some people found a clicking sound coming from a faulty thermal switch inside the projector. Maybe? could be?

    Maybe a wire has come loose and keeps hitting the fan blade?

    Is it still under warranty? if so then opening the pj may invalidate the warranty otherwise I would open it up and have a fiddle around inside. Just have to be careful not to allow dust into the optics, have a hoover on standby.
