New lamp for Optoma DX605R does not work

I purchased an Optoma DX605R replacement lamp and installed it and when I turned the projector on nothing happened. I usually get a OPTOMA display and then the picture appears, but now I get absolutely nothing and the light on top of the projector nesxt to the word "Lamp" flashes red once and after that, the machine eventually goes back into standby.

    I have the exact same problem. How do you fix this? This unit is expensive to replace I hope there is an easy solution for this issue.

    I have EP756 and exactly the same thing happened when I replaced the bulb. Any help gratefully appreciated!!

    I still have not gotten this fixed. When I called Optoma to explain it, they said I needed to send the unit in for maintenance. I don't really have a lot of cash to be spending on this thing, and I would like to fix this myself if possible. Does anyone know what they might mean by "Maintenance?" Is there some kind of reset button inside or some simple trick that they want to charge me for that will fix the problem?


    Thanks.

    I called Optoma Tech Support and they said it needed to be sent to them for service. Bulb isn't the problem. I believe the main board needs repair/replacement. You can't buy the part and fix it yourself because they won't sell the part to you. Their service charges are ridiculous. It would have cost $200-350 to fix. Forget it. I just went out and bought a new portable Toshiba projector for $500.00.

Ok, so forgive me, I'm going by memory. Take the top cover off (4 screws on the side). Take the top silver shield off, look at the screws and only take off the ones you need. It's ok if you take more off, but its just more screws to track. You will need to take off the back outer cover. You will need to unscrew the hexagonal screws that the vga-out port uses to screw the connector to, as these are holding the back plate on. Once you get in, the board you need to look at is on the bottom back. Look for a capacitor that has a rounded top, not flat like the others. You will need to replace this with the same voltage and capacitance. Try an electronics site on the internet to get the right replacement if you cannot find it locally. Sorry for the poor instructions, but its just been too long. As a practice, take pictures as you go (during removal of parts) and you can use them to reinstall. Hope this helps as mine is still working.

I had this exact same problem. I have changed bulbs gotten 1000 or so hours from new bulb, changed the lamp driver and gotten about 600 more hours from new lamp driver. New lamp cost me $350, lamp driver cost me $120. Then I read on a page to try and flip it right side up, because I had it ceiling mounted upside down. I flipped it right side up and it works perfectly and has been working perfectly for 2 months now. I know it sounds stupid, but it actually worked for me, and it costs you nothing to try it. For some reason, gravity effects this unit.

SOURCE: Flashing standby,power on,lamp lights with no fan

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

Why won't my Optoma DV10 projector won't turn on?


On an Optoma DV10 if its not the lamp timer, then it might be a cooling fan that needs replacing. Take out the old one, and look-up its part number online. If you don't feel confident taking it apart, have a qualified person do this.

My Optoma HD72 projector operates for about 1 minute and then shuts off. I kept my old bulb around "just in case", I've replaced the bulb with the old one and have the same problem.


The problem is not over-heating. The Optoma HD72 has a known problem that Optoma won't advertise. The lamp driver is faulty. They simply have to replace the lamp driver. I purchased a spare lamp with my original purchase. I had the exact same experience as you at around 1200 hours on the lamp in ECO mode. I used the spare lamp. Same thing happened at about 1200 hours. I had a friend at Optoma. he confided to me the problem. I sent it in and they replaced the lamp driver at no charge. I got another 800 hours out of the first lamp and am now using my second lamp and have about 600 hours on it. The pic quality is so good with this projector (used Digital Video Essentials to calibrate) that I'll just order a bare lamp or two and use the existing lamp housings when I need a new bulb.

Can you tell me why the optoma HD72I lamp will turn off after just a few minutes of running, the lamp is still fine


I have the same problem. I got a new bulb and it worked for about 1000 hours, then the new bulb started having the same problem. So, I was about to buy another bulb, and I figured why not try the original bulb. IT WORKED! For a couple weeks... Then it started doing it again. Obviously there was nothing wrong with the original bulb, and there is nothing wrong with the new bulb, but I have 2 bulbs that do it now. So, is there any way to just tell the projector run the bulb till it actually dies and not turn it off because it thinks it is about to die.
