Projector issues after upgrading to separates and installing a four post rack



I purchased a XMC-2 and a couple of XPA amps to replace my Denon 4400H a few months ago. I installed a four post rack to hold move everything into.

I hooked everything up, and the projector (Sony es285) made a click and died. (No power) Sent it back to Sony and they replaced the main board and shipped it back.

While waiting on the Sony, I've used a 50" LG TV, with no issues.

I got the projector back. Re-Mounted it, powered it on, ran the test grid and then started to connect the HDMI cable (Which run though the wall and used it with the Denon/es285 for 3 years prior) I hear a click and down went the projector again.

I've got a few ideas and next steps but would like to hear other thoughts.
