Optoma HD65: no power after replacing lamp

My projector's bulb blew out with a loud pop while the unit was shutting down. After that, the unit wouldn't power on - according to the user guide, this is a safety precaution until the lamp is replaced.

I've since replaced the lamp but the unit still won't power on (even the red stand-by LED doesn't turn on). I've read several posts talking about the lamp cover switch not activating properly (mostly for the HD70) but I can clearly hear the clicking sound when I manually activate it and when I put the cover back on.

I'd like to avoid sending it in to Optoma for servicing... Any suggestions?

    Looks like the problem is the power supply, not the bulb (so I assume my old bulb is still good).

    It was the power supply... had to get it replaced.

  • prioux Jan 11, 2011

    Had to call Optoma. I can't remember how much it all ended up costing but they charged for the part plus labour... I think it was something like 200 bucks. Give them a call to find out what they can do for you.

    Thanks -- was that easy to do? Who did it? Did it cost a lot? Sorry all the Qs, but if I can fix it might be better than getting a new one!

SOURCE: My Optoma HD65 Projector stops starts working and

Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.

My argus 300 projector bulb blew new one won't work


yes could have been a power surge at the time, or fan cooler packed it in, the internal housing inside the Projector would have been too hot with the bulb inside it cooling down without the fan, i would double check all parts near the lamp housing and check to see they have not melted or burnt, also worth checking the fuse as well should be a T-250 Fuse bulb

Dell 1209S Projector, tries to turn on, and the fan comes on for 30 seconds and then goes off again. It tries this several times and then the light bulb icon comes off and it doesn't do antything else


Lamp is burned out or makes a popping sound.
When the lamp reaches its end of life, it may burn out and may make a loud popping sound.
If this occurs, the projector does not turn back on. To replace the lamp, see on page 38.
LAMP light is solid amber If the LAMP light is solid amber, replace the lamp.
LAMP light is blinking amber If the LAMP light and the Power light are blinking amber, the lamp driver has failed and the projector will automatically shut down.
If the LAMP light is blinking amber and Power light is solid blue, the color wheel has

I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.

Not sure if this is the solution, but I just had the exact same problem. I came here hoping for a solution but there was none? Anyway I started over, rotated the fan and then reinstalled the lamp. This time it worked? So there you go.

Try putting the bulb into normal (rather than eco) setting.
Check the bulb is seated correctly.
If this does not help you may have to contact your bulb supplier to see if they can swap bulb for you.

Our projector indicates that the light bulb needs to be replaced after replacing the light bulb once it still indicates that it needs to be replaced.


This is the excerpt from the manual on how to reset the lamp life timer.

Turn on the projector and use "Lamp Reset" after the lamp module is replaced.
Lamp Reset: (i) Press "Menu" ?§ (ii) Select "Options" ?§ (iii) Select "Lamp settings" ?§ (iv) Select "Lamp Reset ?§ (v) Select "Yes".

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


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.

Hey my optoma hd65 bulb blew so i replaced it and when i powered it back up i received the fan lock error


the lamp probably blew because the fan stopped. if the lamp can't cool down, it blows. you'll have to find out which fan and replace it.
