Optoma EP716 cycling through inputs problem

I saw a related posted you had out there and thought I would ask you this. I have had my projector for about 1 year and now for some reason it will not pick up my computer or cable tv box. To explain how it is set up is i have a cable that does component to vga which the vga is plugged into the scart. My compuer has two dvi connector on the graphics card and i use a dvi to vga converter and hook the pc through the other vga on the projector as a second monitor. Up till yesterday everything worked fine. Now the projector will not pick up either. I have rebooted the pc and tried everything to get it to work. The projector powers on fine and just cycles through the inputs not matter if i push vga 1 or vga 2. I have powered down the projector and unplugged and left sit for half hour and that did not help either. I currently have it taken down and apart and I am gonig to blow it out to see if maybe just dust is causing it to have problems. I was wondering if you have anything else I should try?

Just purchased a refurbished optima ep716 projector won't synch-keeps rolling through search mode - I have it connected using the SCART setting.


Reduce the screen resolution of your computer monitor to 800 x 600 and check. Let us know the result.
Optoma is a SVGA projector. i.e. the maximum resolution supported by your projector is 800 x 600.

EP716 Optoma Projector Fuse


There is no fuse. I took my EP 716 apart to find out why it died. I found a resistor had blown on the power board made by the Tiwan co. Quazarpower.

It sounds like your module that controls the menu and the "cycling through" may not be in sync or may needs to be replaced. I had times have had to make sure the Optoma EP716 had to be first plugged in and "on" before the PC can communicate with it. Once the Optoma is "ON", then turn your PC/Notebook on. If there is no connection via USB, "S" cable and/or your VGA (be sure your PC/Notebook is set to have the external VGA "active"). Let me know if this works or not. Then we can try to move forward with other options for troubleshooting. BTW...how long have you had this multimedia and how many hours of use does it have?...JGUAM
