Re: dell 2300mp projector repair

I copied this post from JAN 2006, I also read a bunch of other postings with same problems/solutions and the moderator even lists as an answer on the post above yours:

 

Mods, this should DEFINITELY be in the FAQ's. 
 
***This should probably only be done if your warranty is expired, i'm not sure if taking apart your projector will void it or not, so do at your own risk. (Personally I had nothing to lose, the projector wouldn't work and Dell wouldn't help me so I had a $1500 pile of plastic with no good use)
 
OKAY, if your projector is flickering, the picture is jumping up down left and right, then it shuts down and the lamp light comes on it is NOT THE LAMP!!! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Well,,, at least try this first.  For some reason dust on the main board causes this, sounds ridiculous but it's true.
 
I have a 3200mp and just did this 2 hours ago and the projector is as good as new. 
 
For a 3200mp:
 
There are four very small phillips screws on the bottom of the projector... remove those.
 
There is one very small phillips screw on the right hand side of the unit if you are looking at the projector from the front.... remove that.
 
Now flip the unit so it is right side up and remove the top piece of plastic (The bottom doesn't come off at all.  BE CAREFUL, THERE IS A RIBBON ATTACHED TO THE TOP PIECE SO LEAN IT AGAINST SOMETHING.
 
Now grab a vacuum and your air compressor (or can of duster) and go to town.  There will be huge plumes of dust come from under the lamp so keep your vacuum close. 
 
Next take the lamp out and clean off the glass lens (there is probably some dust on it)
 
Put it all back together and it should work like a charm

Re: dell 2300mp projector repair

I had a nice post to submit but found out that they don't allow me to have pictures in the post.
 
My presentation was how to remove all that is necessary on a DELL 2300MP so that one can clean out all the dust that accumulates and causes various problems.  This corrected a problem on my daughters unit that was causing the following symptoms on her unit. 
 
The symptoms on the 2300MP were that if you turned it on with no signal cables attached, the lamp would come on and progressively get brighter and brighter.  During this time the DELL logo would appear.  Just when you thought it should be done getting brighter, the "Temp" (Over temperature) and "Lamp" LEDS would glow orange and bulb shut off.  Earlier, my daughter said they had replaced the lamp because they thought it may be bad. ($349)
 
If you would like to get a copy of my pictures and presentation, send me an email and I will send it to you.

I would also like to get a copy of the disassembly instructions. I am trying to get dust out that shows up on the screen, affecting the picture quality.

Additional:  I just joined the forum as I found this in a search. I hesitate to post an Email address in an open forum as I do not want some bot to add it to a SPAM list. I sent a friend request. I am not sure if that will open up an option to send a private message.
