    I got this projector in used condition about 4 months ago. It supposedly had a new bulb installed. When I got it, I checked it out, and it seemed fine. Now after sitting for several months, it turns off shortly after I try to turn on, and reports an over temperature fault. This suggests a problem with the cooling fan. The fan seems to be turning, and it has been turned on enough times that any stiffness in the bearings should have had time to work itself out.

    My first problem is trying to figure out how to open up the case. I would appreciate any advice on how to fix it, or where I can send it for repair.
