As we all know that the projector's body is smaller than that of a TV or a computer, so is there a need for heat dissipation? It is no doubt that there is a need for heat dissipation, so the correct solution to the projector's heat dissipation issue has become the key to effectively enhancing the performance and lifespan of the projector. Today ZEEMR takes you to understand how to solve the projector's heat dissipation problem to help more friends maintain their projectors.
Before We Start...
You should know that no matter what the usage, the heat dissipation of the home projector is very big, because the projector works continuously for a long time in a small space, the lamp will send out a huge amount of heat, at the same time, the built-in projector voltage regulator will also send out a lot of heat. If it is not dissipated in time, the projector will generate a very high temperature inside, which will not only reduce the efficiency of the projector but also shorten its life. So how to solve the projector's heat dissipation problem?
1. Pay attention to the placement of the projector.
In the manuals of many projectors, it is often suggested to put them in a ventilated and dry place. And do not place any sundries around the body, especially near its vents. Transferring heat through the projector's large body area is one of the effective ways to ensure the smooth cooling of the projector.
2. Clean the vents of the projector frequently.
Every projector is equipped with ventilation. And over time, a lot of pollutants and dust may accumulate in the vents. If the ventilator is not cleaned in time, dust adhering to the ventilator will prevent the smooth flow of air inside the projector. The ventilation device is also to prevent some core components of the projector from being melted or burned by the internal high temperature. The projector manufacturer has designed some holes in the projector casing to ensure that the projector can be ventilated effectively. This is also a method to ensure the smooth cooling of the projector.
3. Pay attention to controlling the working hours of the projector.
Generally speaking, the working time of the projector should be limited to about 4 hours at a time. If you do need the projector to work for a long time, it is best to let it rest for at least 20 minutes every 4 hours. The most proximate cause of a projector generating a lot of heat is that the projector has been operating for too long. Only by controlling the working hours can the projector be well cooled.
4. Minimize the ambient temperature around the projector
During the working process of the projector, its internal working temperature is usually very high. If possible, place the projector in an air-conditioned room, or in a well-ventilated place. If the projector is placed in an environment with a lower overall temperature, it will dissipate heat more efficiently.
5. Understand the working principle of the cooling fan
The cooling fan is a built-in cooling device inside the projector. When the projector is connected to the power supply, the cooling fan will also start to work at the same time to help the projector dissipate heat. But what many people don't know is that when we turn off the projector, the cooling fan will continue to work for a while to take away all the residual heat of the projector.
