Question about Optoma EP738 Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Ep738 not creating any image just a white grid.

As I turn on the projector and the white Optoma logo normally pops up on a black background. Instead what happens is it goes to a white grid and no matter what I do it just shows the white grid. I tried cleaning out all the dust but that didn?t help at all.

HI i had the same problem with my Optoma showing the white grid when turned on, and it is not a problem of the lamp not being good good. Sounds odd, but i removed the lamp. then dropped the projector against a hard surface from say 10 inches from floor, tehen a hard tap on the side, then inserted the lamp back in, turned on the darn thing, and it showed the Optoma logo alright, with 2 vertical stripes, then i removed the lamp again, repeated procedure, and by this time the lines wer gone and i got the projector to work again, including all push buttons on panel (this wasn´t possible when i had that problem. It really worked for me. At least you can try it.

When turning on the projector it shows the Optoma logo but will not boot to the home screen. Is there a way to reload the home screen software?


Depends on the model. If you saw a little fan, then there is a fan problem. There might be 3 fans. 2 square ones and one blower fan. Look for plugs with 3 wires(red/white/black or red/yellow/black). Those will lead to the fans from the mainboard. Occasionally the fan will spin but the tachometer lead will stop reporting the fan status and the projector shuts down. To being with I would clean out the projector fans and ducts thoroughly. That may clear up the issue. Otherwise there is a button press sequence to enable the service menu, but you cannot upload new firmware without special optoma software that isnt available. Another possibility is you have failing filter capacitors in the power supply. Be careful poking around under the hood. There is lethal high voltage possibly stored even when unplugged.

Hi, I have a projector Optoma EP7155 and it appear white and black spot like dead pixel, I would like to know where I can buy a DMD chip with the CCD and how much it will cost. Thank you


global projectors is one source. You need to find out from Optoma the chip you need or take apart the machine and look at it. From China they run about 200 bucks. I've only done Mitsubishi so far.

The background projects as yellow instead of white. Everything has a yellow tinge to it.


It sounds like one of the polarisers has failed, on experience they cost £300 each to replace, and there are 3 of them. I recently bought an NEC NP115 for just over £200, very good spec for the cost. It maybe worth investing in a new one.

Hope I was helpful for you.

My optoma is projecting white spots onto the screen. They seem to just appear. Some have began by 'sparkling' for a while and then they stay white perminantly.


if it is a DLP projector then the DMD on the engine is likely bad or the main board is bad. The white things are pixels.

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.

Color problems


i don't know if this will work but..... I have an Optoma h27 and we were having problems with the color and ours is mounted on the ceiling in inverted also; and after two years we started having color problems, come to find out that on the menu there is a option for high altitude and that had been turned to the "off" position (probably by our kids resetting all the options and not turning this one back on)..... after taking it to a tech that cleaned it for $97.00 and said there was no problems he could find, we played around with the remote/menu and came across this high altitude option and when we saw it was on the "off" position, we put it to the "on" position and another fan inside the projector came on and that helps to keep the inside of the projector cool at all time and helps from the color becoming weird..... Try this on yours and hopefully that will solve your problem.

Vertical white line


My EP719 had the same problem. Did it once, briefly, soon after I bought it, then not again until recently, when the line came back more frequently and wider.

 

The projector was 20 days past warranty, and the company would not honor. So much for customer satisfaction and loyalty. Last piece of Optoma equipment I will ever buy!

 

Anyway, I found a web item on another model of Optoma projector with the same problem. The solution this guy tried was -- I kid you not -- rapping on the thing. With nothing to lose, I tried this on mine. Tapped lightly on the top and noticed a change in the width of the line. Hmmm ... it was sensitive to this.

 

Tapped harder. The line got narrower. Rapped pretty hard -- thump! -- and the line disappeared.

 

Since then I have been running the projector for hours, turning it on and off, letting it cool down, starting it up again. And the line seems to be gone. It may come back, of course, so this gonzo fix may not be permament. But if it works while I'm using it at a presentation, think of the amusement it will cause!
