    Thanks Benimur, you solved it. I feel stupid as I thought I'd thoroughly checked the projector/DVD connection but it turned out that was the problem. Pugdog

Hi, Possibly either of 2 reasons: 1. Your player is not sending any signal to the Optima meaning it is the one in question and not the projector; or 2. Your Optima lost its input signal, go through the signal source selection menu, try manual selection & set it to where your source/player is connected. Hope this works out for you, if not pls post again . Good luck and kind regards.

Optoma movie time projector has a vibrating sound

Normally this sound noise is the small FAN inside. Dirty or faulty. You must open the proyector, or go to some shop repair.

God bless you

Optoma h31 stopped suddenly. I replaced the bulb, but the power button isnt flashing green, and I cant turn the unit on.

The little metal plate on the projector next to the bulb housing is not fully depressed (pressed down). The plastic cover is suppose to have a plastic piece protruding from it which is to depressed the metal plate when the cover is placed back on. If the metal piece is not pressed down, the projector will not light.

Optoma h31 was unable to power up

It can have two problems. One is that the lamp has gone out and needs replaced. Refer to your troubleshooting section in your manual. Also can be bad capacitors in the power supply circuitry or Voltage Reg. IC. Either should be left to competent repair individual.

Optoma H31 - Turns itself off !

sounds like the projector lamp to me. the rated hours are always up to the published hours and never "this is what you will achieve." I would suggest getting a lamp as you will need one shortly by the sounds of it. In many cases the projector does this as it is programmed to protect itself from the lamp shattering inside the projector. Let me know if you would like a quotation for a lamp as we ship internationally. Regards Kevin Andreassend. +64-9-4142348

Can I buy and replace a clourwheel unit for my optoma H31 myself??

There is no "color wheel" in these units. These projectors use a series of LCD panels and filters to create the picture as far as I know. That optical unit will not be cheap. WHat is the rpoblem with the unit that leads you to believe this needs to be replaced?

No signal

The output video needs to be enabled on the laptop. Normally this connector is not active. There should be a function key that has the outline of a CRT screen on it. Using the ctrl key and that key at the same time will toggel the output video connector on/off. If that does not resolve the problem, please update this with your exact setup including cables.
