So I was on a walk with some friends an i stumble upon a projector in the trash. When I plugged it in it ran but the fan in the back was broken. I then opened up the case a hot wired in a new 40mm fan. When i put it back together, though, there were discolored bars on the sides so I opened it up again to see if i could fix it. I fiddled with it for a wile ad blew the dust out but to no avail. I was not able to fix my protector.

I am interning this in the Full Spectrum Laser Contest so please vote for me. I am looking to make more videos like this but i can not afford a Laser cuter or a 3D printer. Thanks for reading, favorite follow and vote for me.

<p>I have a lot of projector bulbs that doesn't fit into our new projectors. How can I make use of them? can I modify one old projector and use these bulbs instead?</p><p>PLEASE HELP.</p>
<p>Looks like a convergence issue.</p>
<p>selling these for past 6 years I can tell you if the fan is broken it's probably also got a burned lamp. Does it do anything when you power it up? Flashing power light can sometimes indicate what's wrong with it</p>
<p>No it starts up fine. IF you see the vidio i show the lamp a little</p>
<p>My apologies, I didn't see the one was a video. The bars could be indication of the organic panels breaking down. The LCD panels are an organic material and do break down over time. I think that series is probably 5 or so years old which may be why it looks like that.</p>
<p>Thanks for the tip. do you know how to fix it?</p>
<p>Honestly, I'm not sure they are replaceable by mere mortals. We usually have to send them in for repair and even still I am not sure those panels are replaceable.</p>
<p>Quick update my acount was haked a few hours ago so there were some fake coments so please ignore them. i have fix the breach.</p>
<p>I know i just really want a 3d printer or lazer cuter</p>
<p>You don't need a laser cutter or 3D Printer to win a contest...a good step-by-step with nice pictures and good descriptions of how you made it is a good start though...!</p>
