Question about Optoma HD80 Projector

Open Question

Optoma HD80 images are glared and blotchy, especially reds and skin tones in dim scenes. The reds turn to orange and the blotches/glares move with the image. We have had the projector for several years and this started happening recently. We have tried many of the settings, but none seem to fix it. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Optoma HD80 flashing blue lights


Sound like the original color wheel for Optoma HD80 is bad.

If the unit has been moved when hot.

If not, try un-plugging the unit for a few minutes and re-connect.

Hope this helps

Red glare on screen and seems that paused script is burned into screen.


Hello
This is anormal fault to all flat panel tVs. If a still picture is paused for a long duration of time, itd image will seem to appear on the secreen even after that picture has been moved away from it. In some cases, this fault will be retified with time. There is no repair for this fault. Just input any plain white screen signal input to it, and let it be there for at least 15 minutes or so. If the fault has not been rectified by this, the screen may need repalcement.
As your set is almost new one, and will be within warranty period, just cusult to the service center for any remedy. Never tell them the cuse for this fault, as you have made it by yoursef (eventhough they knows the cuse). OK.

Blotches on images especially images with a light background eg.


This is probably due to dust or other foreign matter on the CCD. Look at the Pentax *ist DL manual under "CCD cleaning" or "sensor cleaning" for instructions.

There is a "sensor cleaning" mode in the Set-up menu that will lock the mirror up so you can inspect/clean the CCD sensor.

Optoma projector HD806


its not the color wheel. Its the sensor that counts the black tape on the color wheel. The sensor has dust on it. It can't count how many times the wheel is going around because the dust is blocking it. the sensor is located by the wheel. if you have any questions you can callme 610-842-7442 ask for dan.

Glare on my windshield


Yes dim the light panel. Their should be a small knob somewhere on the dash on the left of the steering wheel that you turn to increase or decrease the brightness of the instrument panel.

Magnavox Projection


What is model number? A magnavox 51MP392 is a CRT rear projection type and doesn't use a bulb (unless he was refering to the CRT's as bulb). And they are prohibitively expensive.
