As a last resort only: There is a small screw on the laser unit that adjust the laser intensity. Small adjustments (keep a note of the original angle and other angles that you try) can help but be verycareful or you will render the laser as useless as **** on a boar.

Ok , I would try to clean the disk player lens.
Disk lens cleaner is a disk with a little brush on it
and it works.

Why won't my Optoma DV10 projector won't turn on?

On an Optoma DV10 if its not the lamp timer, then it might be a cooling fan that needs replacing. Take out the old one, and look-up its part number online. If you don't feel confident taking it apart, have a qualified person do this.

My Optoma DV10 works fine for 20 sometimes 45 minutes then freezes up. Bulb and fan stays on but movie just stops playing.


All gadgets have limits and have a tendency to malfunction if over used most of the time.
You have to give sometime for it to rest too, machines and gadgets are like humans too, needing time to rest and recharge after a hardwork. If this is not your case however, it's best if you visit your provider and have it checked if it's stops without you overusing it then this should be covered by warranty.

It doesn't play the movie. It says can't read

This seems to be a common problem with optoma DV10 series. I'm assuming that is why they discontinued that model. We hooked up a playstation or dvd player and use that instead.

DV10 optoma movie time is suddenly not recognizing DVD disks. It has been working fine for nearly two years. The projector works fine when connected to the TV box. The disk player spins but will not read...

there are dvd cleaning disks that work ok. you can get them at best buy or radio shack. they'll just lightly brush the dust off of the lens on the optical pickup. if the unit is is humid conditions, you'll need to use a lint free microfiber lens cloth and gently brush the dirt off of the lens. if there is stuff stuck to it, you'll need denatured alcohol with a scratch free fiber swab to wash off the lens (don't use a lot of alcohol). blow it dry and test it out.

Loud Fan Noise

Review Date
Monday, 12th of September, 2005 --> What's Hot
User-friendly, built-in DVD player, high-throw ratio lens, fast power/cool down What's Not
Fan operation is quite audible, native resolution of just 480p The Final Word
A perfect coffee table companion Notes
# This product is no longer available directly from the manufacturer. It may be available in retail and distribution channels, or second hand. The price displayed is the price at review time and the last available recommended retail price.

The DV10 has a futuristic-looking outer casing and two internal speakers located behind a silver grille mesh at the rear. Heat is removed through its side ventilation and the internal fan has a noise level of 27dB, which is comparable to a loud computer and quite distracting when watching movies at low volume. At 368 x 117 x 273mm, the unit is small enough to permanently and inconspicuously reside on a coffee table.

this is from a review .

it sounds like that the fan needs to be cleaned the sound you hear is normal but if it sounds like its racein the moder might be on its way out if you have a can of air used to clean a key bored i would try to clean it out with that if not take it to a repair place to see if they could look at the moder

Wont power up optoma movie time

it's probably not this: Try using the remote to turn it on. I cleaned out mine a while ago and the controls on the main unit stopped working. Only way to turn it on now (for me) is the remote.

A message appears saying "no disc" and DVD are not recognize anymore

If this unit has a built in DVD player, then the player's lens may need cleaning. There are lens cleaning discs available for this. If the unit does not have a built in player, then the same applies to your player & there is no problem with the projector itself.
