Runco LS-5 projector, 4 years old. Starts fine, then picture disappears and power light on unit blinks red. Potential problem? Lamp? Something worse?

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Flashing red is an over temperature state.

That usually is just the result of dust buildup or obstructed vents.

Unplug power, gently vacuum all of the vent grills, and blow out as best you can with compressed/canned air.

Replug, and try to power on again.
