    I have an Epson 5010 1080p projector. After four or five years it has developed a faint but audible high pitched intermitant squeak in what I believe to be the fan.

    Is this a known problem that can be fixed?

    If not is there something that I could make like a sound cowel that allows air to pass?

    I wouldnt mess with the air intake with a cowl for fear of reducing the air intake and burning up the lamp or projo. I do think youre correct, sounds like the fan is getting tired. Its the only moving part (unless it has a variable iris) so it kinda makes sense.

    Fixing it yourself depends on how handy you are. But a service call by a pro and an r and r of the fan probably wouldnt be expensive. Found the fan on walmart.com (of all places)
