Optoma HD65 flashing colors

About a month ago, our projector started flashing colors. We replaced the bulb about 2 weeks ago and it stopped. But, today while we were watching tv, it started again. It flashes mostly red and green and will be really quick,...maybe once or twice every few minutes. any suggestions on what this could be?

    I have the same problem with my Optoma HD32. The issue is intermittent, sometimes won't happen for quite a while, sometimes frequent flashes over a short time period. Doesn't seem to matter how long the machine has been on. Color wheel issue? We recently also had persistent horizontal bars on the screen, but those went away right about the time the color issues cropped up.

Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.

SOURCE: Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!

I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

I have had my hd65 for about two years. 7 months ago i had the red blinking kight start and couldnt afford to buy new bulb. i recently bought new bulb....installed it and now im getting no power to the...


It will be due to the missing cover, as the lamp module gets very hot. You could possibly make one, I wouldn't like to guarentee the safety of it though. Usually the cover has a pin or something that engages a safety switch. Maybe the manufacturer Optoma can supply a new cover, the cost would ensure safety from a fire.

Good luck

Try cleaning the filter. If the area where it is installed is enclosed this will also cause over heating.. Make sure you have adequate air flow in the place where it is located and clean the filter.

Try putting the bulb into normal (rather than eco) setting.
Check the bulb is seated correctly.
If this does not help you may have to contact your bulb supplier to see if they can swap bulb for you.

Colors flickering


Easiest and cheapest to just fix it yourself! The problem is with dust/debris accumulation on the color wheel. Very simple to fix. Remove the lamp and you can see the color wheel. You may be able to clean it from that hole using compressed air. If not, you will have to take the outer casing off. A film will build up on the color wheel in certain environments, smoking, dusty areas, placement next to ceiling fans. To remove the film build up, use a q-tip with denatured alcohol. start from the inner part of the color wheel and work the q-tip upward towards the outer part of the wheel. you may have to remove the cover plate to the color wheel to clean the other side( side facing the lens). Not a big deal and will bring your projector back to its original vivid colors. As for LCD projectors, they are only good for one lamp. You will never get the full use out of a second lamp as the lcd panels degrade fairly quickly. Usually the blue lcd panel is the first to go. A DLP projector can last you for years and many replacement bulbs. Replacing a color wheel is fairly easy. Replacing lcd panels, not going to happen as they have to be calibrated and are very expensive. P.S. If you are a smoker and you do it in the same area as your projector, you will get a tar build-up inside the projector. The tar will accumulate on EVERYTHING and eventually lead to overheating as well as color wheel issues. The reason I mention this is I just repaired a Optoma EP721 (very similar to the HD65) that had this issue.

Optoma HD65 bulb only 108 hrs old having difficulty starting up


Use the warranty! since you anly had it for 8 weeks, and the waaranty last for one year, go back with it and get it repaired or get a new bulb. A buld last at least 2500 hours, in eco mode it last for over 3000 hours.

Good luck to you
