    Right. I've got it mounted on a high shelf on the back wall. The shelf is about 8 inches from the ceiling. The projector is upside down and I have the lamp on low power and the fan on standard.

    When watching movies. Sometimes the projector light just shuts down and the pj enters into a cooling cycle. I don't get any warnings etc... and it's getting annoying.


    Has anyone else experienced this. Do I have a duff unit.

    I can't say I've experienced this, but the manual shows what all the different LED patterns mean. (eg overheating)

    I've noticed that the buttons aren't recessed on the projector and that there are two vents on top - I assume you've got it raised up off the shelf a bit?

    I have but maybe not enough. Time to go to the garage and sort me out some longer stand offs.

    I had this happen once, but I put it down to a stupid person (me) hitting the wrong button on the wonderful remote that comes with the unit.

    Mine is on a shelf just above head height when you are seated the right way up so no chance of any buttons being pressed.

    Other than this and I am still not completely sure if I did press a button everything has been fine.

    Okay. It happened again last night.

    The led's are:-

    Lamp, temp, fan on green.
    On is red lite which means 'power went out during normal use - internal problem with the projector'.

    Looks like I'll have to request a RMA.
