Hi there

The only way of fixing this is replacing or repairing the Mainboard.

This is a common Mainboard failure on Projectors

I don't have a solution but I bet the connector on the projector has a bad pin.

Just bought a hd23 and when I turned it on there are white vertical lines on the screen, how do I get rid of them?

Hi, I have the same problem and mine was bought it a week ago in a BBuy Miami. I call customer service, and they told me to send it and claim for Warranty, there is no way to get rid of them.
The problem is that I bought it in the US and I'm in Argentina, so at this point for me is 1000 dollars spent in something that does not work. I realy expected more from Optoma.
There are some post that sais that you have to apply preasure on the top of the projector to get rid of them, but I try it but it does not work for me. In any case, the product still defective. if you can, change it for another projector, if not send it to Optoma customer service. there are a lot of people with this problem.

I just read a post that said tap on the top and the line will go away. I tried it on mine and it worked! I had to tap it fairly hard. I just kept tapping harder and harder on the plastic in front of the buttons and voila! The vertical white line disappeared!

Vertical line

Hi Abouttime

This is unfortunately a sign of Mainbaord damage to any make of Projector.

But do give this a go , you've got nothing to lose.

Try using a different signal cable and then pressing Auto on either the remote of the Projector or the Projector it self once the line appears.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Vertical white line

My EP719 had the same problem. Did it once, briefly, soon after I bought it, then not again until recently, when the line came back more frequently and wider.


The projector was 20 days past warranty, and the company would not honor. So much for customer satisfaction and loyalty. Last piece of Optoma equipment I will ever buy!


Anyway, I found a web item on another model of Optoma projector with the same problem. The solution this guy tried was -- I kid you not -- rapping on the thing. With nothing to lose, I tried this on mine. Tapped lightly on the top and noticed a change in the width of the line. Hmmm ... it was sensitive to this.


Tapped harder. The line got narrower. Rapped pretty hard -- thump! -- and the line disappeared.


Since then I have been running the projector for hours, turning it on and off, letting it cool down, starting it up again. And the line seems to be gone. It may come back, of course, so this gonzo fix may not be permament. But if it works while I'm using it at a presentation, think of the amusement it will cause!
