Question about Optoma RD65 65" Rear Projection HDTV

Open Question

Replaced lamp, now lamp lights up but wont stay on.

I replaced the lamp in my 2004 Optoma RD65. After replacing, TV worked great, watched for approx. 15min. next morning set would not get a blu screen or picture. The lamp is actually turning on but shuts off after a few seconds. I can see the light thru the small openings. Is it the power supply? did my balast coincidently go bad after 15min into the new lamp. I purchased the lamp on line BLVU120A $165 it has a one yr warranty, but I don't think its the lamp.

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.

You might try unplugging the set for maybe 20 mins. to see if that might help in resetting the internals. Good luck!

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.

Optoma RD65 Service manual


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

Replaced bulb stil issues


In most projection televisions if a solid light comes on there isn't anything wrong the bulb there is a problem with one of several cards in the back of the television. I'd check for over heating damage on your imput cards, the Controller card that is connected to said input card, or the relay card that controls the tube output. Keep in mind you did order a part off of Ebay which is untrustworthy in and unto its self.
