Optoma HD600x LV - Turns ON then OFF - FIX

This may apply to other models too.


Projector turns on, you hear the fan for a short while, then it powers off. Power light then flashes Orange and Lamp light is steady Red.

Possible cause
Dirty light sensor - means sensor can not detect enough light and thinks lamp is dud and turns itself off.

Take out lamp.
Unscrew case - 2 on bottom - 2 on back.
Then you have to prise off the lid - a very thin screwdriver inserted in the edges and pushed along works - don't force it too hard - but eventually it clips off.

DO NOT lift the lid up too far as there is a ribbon to the buttons - if either end snaps off/pulls out they're a pain to refit and you may lose the tiny brown ribbon clips - that secure the ribbons. (I think they normally lift up).

There's enough room to get a cotton bud around the square light sensor.

You can test while lid lose but have to have lamp in with its cover.

Refit in reverse.

I have a Toshiba TDP ET20 projector, the problem is that there is that it wont power up. There is a click when the power is turned on but no lights, including the main projector light, come on

if the fans come on but no lights, listen for a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear it, the colorwheel needs to be replaced. if you do hear it, replace the ballast. if no fans, replace the power supply.

only power light will power on for few seconds then flashes.

Does the main lamp light at all? It sounds light a cooling fan failure. If the fan iis not working the the main lamp will not turn on and the power light will flash.

7200 not turning on

I had pretty much the exact same problem, I could hear the fans turn barely on when plugging in, but it wouldn't power up. If you look at the power light in dark conditions, the light was doing a rapid flicker. My power supply had failed. I tried to get a replacement board, but the part is no longer available. Projector Doctor would fix it for $395, but there is a person on this board who goes by Neo32 on here and gtitubro on ebay that fixed it for me for $150. I'm a satisfied customer :-)
