Question about Optoma HD70 DLP Projector
The problem with the bulb cover interlock(safety switch) tab is that it is molded with the plastic cover. When these projectors are ceiling mounted upside down, the heat from the bulb melts the interlock tab and causes it not to actuate the interlock switch.
If you push the switch arm in you can hear the switch click. The fix I did on my projector was to bend the switch arm so that it stays actuated. You can use a small set of needle nose pliers or two small screwdrivers. be careful to only bend the arm in the middle, if you break the arm from the switch, you will have to go in and bypass the switch.... Just be carefull...
After you bend the switch arm try to press it in, if you did it right you won't hear the click. install the lamp, cover, and your done.

With the bulb replacement cover off, look next to the bulb. You will see what I call a "Safety Switch". You might have to just push it in to get it to set until you put the cover back on. I have no idea why the cover doesn't push it in like it should.

Check the inside of the plastic cover for the lamp.. it has a tab on it that pushes on a lever ...this switch prevents the projector from turning on if the cover is off.. if the tab broke off or the lever is not engaging there will be no power to the projector...i tried to run my projector with the cover off and i had the same problem...then i noticed the tab and figured this is what it is for. cover off=no power

I had my optoma hd70 apart this evening checking it for dirt and when i put it back together i notice that there is a very sensitive interlock feature on the outside cover of the lamp compartment. Have you completely installed all the parts that you removed. Pay particular attention to the outside cover. By the way are having an issue where the bulb does out during use?
