How do I use the on and off timers on my Digital Decorating Kit projector?
Lots of decorators like to use automatic timers for their lights to save power and effort at the end of a long night of holiday fun. But what about projectors? Can those be put on automatic timers too?
It seems like an easy solution, but you should not use automatic timers with digital projectors. Turning off a projector improperly can sometimes damage the projector. The fan must continue running to cool down the projector after use, and simply shutting off the power to the projector means the fan can not run
There is also an "On Time" setting to automatically turn on your projector, but you will still need to manually select and play your decorations once the projector boots up.
