Hello all, just to give you some background information on what we are dealing with, I recently bought a philips bsure xg1 projector from a flea market out in medina, MN. It was in perfect working condition up until three weeks ago. That is when I had a very frustrating incident. I was working on various things when I accidentally unplugged my projector while it was on. After waiting a few minutes, I attempted to turn it back on, but to no avail, not only did the projector fail to respond at all, the projector's power LED wouldn't light up either. confused by this, I waited 24 hours to see if it was simply a capacitor overload. but that wasn't the case either. My next guess was that the internal fuse may have blown. So I opened it up and checked the fuse on the Power Supply Unit. I couldn't see inside it, so I simply used my stereo to see if the fuse would complete the circuit to a speaker, and it did. So now I am left confused as to what damages unplugging the projector could have been done. I am desperate to know what I can do to repair this problem. Please give an input you can.

Thanks everyone

Not sure but I know that projector manufacturers advise not to unplug their units until they have completed a cool down cycle. When I shut my projector off, the fan goes into hi mode to cool off the unit. Presumably, pulling the ac out by accident may have caused somkething to overheat. But I am not sure......... Just a thought. Maybe the bulb went.

Depending on how many hours the unit had on the lamp it is possible that the lamp blew but this shouldn't effect all power aspects. But unplugging a projector before it has time to go through the cooling cycle can cause serious damage due to the heat from the lamp that is still there as it is cooling after the power was prematurely disconnected from it. At that point there were no fans to pull the hot air and push it out of the unit. One thing I suggest doing is get into the lamp housing. It is very simple in most cases to do this. Locate the lamp cover door (probably on the bottum) and open it. Unscrew the lamp and pull it out. With the lamp out plug the projector in and see if you get any indicator lights or any sign of power. Check the lmap for any burns or marks first, Then put the lamp back in and screw it back together. Some times reseating the lamp can fix strange issue like these, but I think more than likely the intense heat the lamp gave out with no fans must have damaged something. It could also be another fuse inside or even a circuit breaker in the unit. The short version? If these simple tasks do not work, your going to need to get it serviced. And frankley it would not be cheap, and the unit is not all that great anyway. So if simple things don't work you can always attempt to take it apart and check for anything strange your self but I would recommend it, you likely might never get it put back together again. But not to worry. You can buy a projector that would blow that unit away for as little as $600 brand new.

Hi all,

Just bought a second hand BSure XG1 projector but the projector is shut down by SecurityMax (no PIN or anything is requested). Surfing the net I'm not able to find anywhere the MaxSecurity manual for the BSure XG1, this manual is contained on the support CD that didn't come with the projector. If anybody could provide me these manual or tell me how to unlock the projector once is shut down I´ll be really grateful.

Thanks to all!
Cheers.

Hi Merlz,
Did you ever find a solution for that securityMax issue? I'm having the exact same problem...

Thank you
