    Ok I got picture to show by wipping down insides. My only problem now is like most members here I get picture for a minute then a black picture with fans running. I hear it may be a bulb problem and a bulb driver problem. I want to be sure before I replace lightbulb. Brought projector from ebay for repair and hoped to got lucky because there problem was having no picture only. Bulb was in projector but I can not tell what is the time on bulb until menu can stay on. I am also wondering can I use the service port to do any fixes???

Most problems with the lamps are covered in the manuels for these projectors , however none user technical difficulties are not .. ie where it is needed to open the unit not recomended to the untrained as a screwdiver in the wrong place can cause irepairable harm let alone death ?
To check if it is your bulb simply take the unit to an engineer for an estimate usually free at least you will know whats wrong and can go from there .. and if you do have a working bulb an ebay replacement is probably the cheaper conclusion to your problem ... regards Vortash

What does it mean when all three lights, standby, temp and lamp, remain solid on Optoma HD72?


I suggest you go to eserviceinfo and search for the manual on this unit, sometimes this indicates a filter door open or bulb carrier door not closed. But to be honest without seeing the manual ?, however you didn't say if the unit was working despite the lights or not. Check the doors to all compartments and see if they are closed properly, other than this advice I suggest you seek an engineer to check it out

Optoma HD80 flashing blue lights


Sound like the original color wheel for Optoma HD80 is bad.

If the unit has been moved when hot.

If not, try un-plugging the unit for a few minutes and re-connect.

Hope this helps

Hello, I am having a problem with my hd72/hd6800. My projector is on its original bulb and has about 500 hours over 5 years. Today i was able to turn it on, but the lamp wont light up. I hear the fan start...


Despite the relatively few hours on the lamp, the fact is it's over 5 years old. It is not uncommon for a lamp to age and be too weak to fire. Replace the lamp, you should be fine.

Lamp flashing, hd72 projector


In most projector menus there will be an option to reset the lamp timer, it's usually under the "settings" area of the menu. Try resetting the lamp timer and the light should stop flashing.

Optoma HD72 flashes red and green. I changed the lamp but the problem wasn't resolved. Any input would be greatly appreciated.! Greg


I had the same problem with flashing colors after playing for awhile. The following helped:
1. turn off bright mode from menu.
2. keeping the back side of the projector flat. I had it raised up about 3" on the backside before, not sure why but it worked fine when flat.
Hope these help you also.

Optoma projector switches off after 5 mins


AS regretable as this sounds component failiure was my first thought .. It's not the bulb temp sensor as the fan is opperating and that usually cuts all power .
You may find that as you have a bulb ( usually worth more than the units they reside in ) rather than a repair another unit of Ebay would be a safer and more economic conclusion ... Regards Vortash

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.

I've had the same problem with my projector three times (usually whenever there's a sports championship). You just need to call optoma, get an RMA number, and ship it to them. Theoretically they'll fix it under warranty and send it back free.
