It’s important to let the projector use air to cool its components down.

  1. Do not cover or obstruct any of the air vents on the device
  2. Make sure the projector is not enclosed or right against a wall - it needs ventilation space all around
  3. Don’t place the projector on top of other electronic equipment, such as a DVD player; these also produce heat


Make nothing is obstructing the cooling fan. Listen to hear if it is working properly; get the device repaired as soon as possible if it isn’t.


Room temperature:

If possible, don’t mount your projector in a hot section of the room; i.e. above a radiator.

You may need an additional cooling system if the room temperature is consistently hot.


Using the projector:

  1. Using the projector on its brightest settings will make it hotter, shorten bulb life and use more electricity
  2. Do not move the projector when hot - this can cause the bulb to shatter
  3. Check the projectors user guide’s safety instructions to avoid problems regarding the mounting and placement of the projector.
