Projector Tip: Getting a "Projector Overheating" Message?

After returning from the Christmas break I have received several calls regarding "Projector Overheating" messages from teachers. In some cases, this might be the result of a lamp about to go out.  For most, it is due to heat build-up.

Here is why: During the winter heat rises to the ceiling and causes the projectors to overheat.  Consider switching your ceiling fans to winter mode and allow heat to distribute to help resolve the overheating messages.  I am in the process of blowing out the dust one wing at a time. If your projector has the replace lamp on and you have already unplugged it and plugged it back in to reset, and then let me know when it starts shutting off on its own and I will schedule a time to replace lamp.
