I like to reuse parts or componets and I Love to be part of the Instructable community. In how to use led multimedia projector Instructable, I show you how to make a LCD projector with a LED as the light source. I tried to make videos of everything so it is easier to follow the steps.

See more cool projects on my blog. After making my first LED projector that you can see here , I had lots of questions and people interested in the projector. Some of them went ahead and did something similar like mcastles. I felt sorry that I could not give more details of the making of the projector. Also the MP4 player that I used is not longer available so many people could not find an MP4 with composite input like mine.
I decided to make another one, so you could actually SEE how to do it. This type of projector is very energy efficient. A normal projector with metal halide lamp will consume about 260W plus a DVD player which can consume between 20w and 45W for a total of about 300w. That is a saving of a lot of money by the end of the year. Although the quality and brightness of a conventional projector will be better, you’ll have to pay the price, and the environment as well.
Another good feature of this projector is that the LED should last about 10000 hours of use wile a conventional projector lamp lasts about 2000 hours. Lets see the result of making this projector. There is a powerful light that is projected through an LCD into a lens so the image is projected. The better the quality on the LCD, the better the projected image. The LCD can’t take more than 40C, so if you decide to use some other type of light source, pay good attention to the cooling system. Without a good fresnel lens will be really difficult to light the LCD evenly.
