I have an optoma 738 and i powered it up and it tried to turn on the lamp ( i could hear it )
after 3 tries the lamp light came on, so i assumed the bulb was burned out so i ordered a new one.
got it and put it in and the same thing happened.
i removed the bulb and inside i noticed that inside the light socket there is a tan colored wall near the lens to the left it looks like a hole has burned throught it.
could this be the problem and how do i fix it?

I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.
You can test the power source if you are getting any power input from the power cord itself. Plug in your power cord and use an eletronic meter on the other end to see if you are getting the proper voltage (110/120) reading. If not, then the power cable is bad in itself. IF you are getting power from your cord, it could also be a fuse inside the Optoma and/or where the power plug on the Optoma meets the actual power source is out of alignment or may also be not making the proper contact to the main circuit board on the Optoma. Hope it helps....JGUAM
its probably the ballast that is bad, call Optoma and you can buy a ballast for it, but you will probably want to have a pro do it, changing the ballast is a lot more involved than just changing the bulb, the ballast is what powers the bulb and it does go out on occasion.
