Question about Optoma EP716 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Optoma EP716 turns on but no picture displays

Hi the first time i turned the projector on it shot optoma onto the wall and started searching for a source but i had none hooked up to it so nothin was displayed but suddenly the image shut off and the projector was still on. I tried to unplug the system and repower it back up. The lamp will turn on for about 5 seconds but no image ever appears even while the lamp is on for 5 seconds, but the little bit of light it produces will turn off in 5 seconds and the fan and power light is still on. What the heck is wrong with this thing? thanks!!

Don't ever just unplug the power cord while it is on. The bulb needs to cool down with the fan still on.
Did you ever connect a source?

Just purchased a refurbished optima ep716 projector won't synch-keeps rolling through search mode - I have it connected using the SCART setting.


Reduce the screen resolution of your computer monitor to 800 x 600 and check. Let us know the result.
Optoma is a SVGA projector. i.e. the maximum resolution supported by your projector is 800 x 600.

Optoma ep716 was making a clicking sound and now doesn't turn on... Any ideas?


Clicking is probably the lamp trying to start - it uses an electric arc to get going. Kind of like gas stoves using spark to ignite the gas. Odds are that the lamp is dead. If there are any indicator lights, and you describe them, we may be able to confirm (or disprove). 1ak+f4pj7cbm32cuniyi2gaaaaaelftksuqmcc

EP716 Optoma Projector Fuse


There is no fuse. I took my EP 716 apart to find out why it died. I found a resistor had blown on the power board made by the Tiwan co. Quazarpower.

Optoma EP716 source detection


It sounds like your module that controls the menu and the "cycling through" may not be in sync or may needs to be replaced. I had times have had to make sure the Optoma EP716 had to be first plugged in and "on" before the PC can communicate with it. Once the Optoma is "ON", then turn your PC/Notebook on. If there is no connection via USB, "S" cable and/or your VGA (be sure your PC/Notebook is set to have the external VGA "active"). Let me know if this works or not. Then we can try to move forward with other options for troubleshooting. BTW...how long have you had this multimedia and how many hours of use does it have?...JGUAM

Toshiba laptop won't work with new optoma projector


-toggle the laptop display using the FN keys and F5 I believe. -lower laptop resolution to 800 x 600 -look in laptop display properties for lcd or external display settings, see if it (external crt) has to be enabled on the laptop first.
