Optoma RD65 Service manual

I own an Optoma RD65 manufactured in May 2004; I do not have any power to the TV. I'm the 2nd owner of this set and was told that an Optoma Tech diagnosed the problem as being a bad power supply. I also noticed that the incorrect lamp was used 15kv 23h and not the 5kv 23 so the ballast could be a concern. I do not want to put too much money into this set and could purchase a new power supply for about $180. I also have concern about the motherboard as to weather it is HDCP compatable (based on what I've read any tv manufactured after Feb 2004 woulhave the newer motherboard) but at this time I would just like to get it powered up. Do you have a copy of the service manual?

Thanks for any assistance.

Successful repair to power supply carried out by replacing C50 100uf/25v which was leaky, the original fitted had heat shrink sleeve on it which I guess kept it hot and dried it out. Original symptoms were dead set with very dim standby lamp, now fully working for a very cheap single component, hope this helps revive other sets though I know they are now an old set...though still a good one !!

Hi,

I'm sorry it's taken so long to get back to you.

Unfortunately I have not been able to obtain a copy of a service manual for the Tv or power supply.

I'm in the process of selling the set; I give up.

Sorry I could not help.

Did you ever find the service manual for your RD65. I am also looking for a service manual, Optoma will not provide the manual. This TV is out of production due to all the problems with it, you would think they would help out those of us that had faith in their product and spent our hard earned money. Optoma's Tech support and customer service is terrible. If you have the service manual I would be willing to pay for a copy. Email me at waltlevick@comcast.net

I have a optoma rd65 when on it makes a loud humming noise


You most likely have a failing color wheel. This is a known problem in the RD65. If you search on EBay for an RD50 color wheel it is the same one that goes in the RD65. They are roughly $150 depending on who you purchase from. They can be user replaced if you are handy with tools. The bearings wear out and this causes the humming you are hearing.

When you turn on the TV in about 3 to 5 minutes the picture goes out and about a minute later the sound goes out. Also wondering where I could get the sevrice manual for the optpma RD65.


The fuse is most likely blown.Sometimes the fuse will blow if the set gets to hot.
Replace the fuse and clean out all the dust that may be blocking the air vents and all dust off the fans and then try it again.

My too, same problem - tried replacing lamp ($150), no luck, replaced ballast ($200) no luck, replaced power supply ($150) no luck and TSC is telling me to replace the main engine ($600) - way too much for this piece of junk (cost me $4000 in 2005) - don't buy optoma products!!!

its probably the ballast that is bad, call Optoma and you can buy a ballast for it, but you will probably want to have a pro do it, changing the ballast is a lot more involved than just changing the bulb, the ballast is what powers the bulb and it does go out on occasion.
