Sound like the original color wheel for Optoma HD80 is bad.

If the unit has been moved when hot.

If not, try un-plugging the unit for a few minutes and re-connect.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: optoma projector switches off after 5 mins

AS regretable as this sounds component failiure was my first thought .. It's not the bulb temp sensor as the fan is opperating and that usually cuts all power .
You may find that as you have a bulb ( usually worth more than the units they reside in ) rather than a repair another unit of Ebay would be a safer and more economic conclusion ... Regards Vortash

Optoma gt700 is all green after replacing color wheel


we mainly retail or distribute color wheel, light tunnel ect sparet parts for projector or TV, so we have experience on that problem you faced.

perhaps you ordered a compatible color wheel,but it is not big trouble. compared with your old wheel, you will find a black tape, just make it as the same position as your old wheel, it will be ok.

If its a DLP with a high pitched or even fan like sound it is the color wheel--Mitsubishi does not sell them as a part---you would have to replace the entire light engine (expensive and may not be available any more on a older set) .

Samsung dlp tv HLP5663W makes loud noise


Yes, the set uses a color wheel and the lamp faces it.

The wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and is well known for this problem=bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

The high pitched or fan like noise (classic description) is this part.

Sooner or later the wheel (plastic colored segments) will shatter and set will shut down lamp and not operate---set monitors the speed of the wheel so if it slows down or stops it knows.

The part is readily available on the internet (Google the model number with "color wheel").

This can be a do it yourself repair and You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel by model number.

There are two common pitfalls to avoid which the instructions that come with the replacement part usually do not mention---if you decide to do this repair let me know and I will explain.

hi,
possiblely it is the problem of fan, try to check the radiator fan port.

I have a Optoma HD80 and the bulb has about 450 hours on it. I cleaned the projector, unpluged it for several mins and still turns off after starting. If the bulb has only 450 hours on it, why should I...


hi,
You have to check the bulb first. Its not the matter of how many hours you have used it. just check the lamp. may be it burned out. Its only a bulb it can burnout at any time. also check the lamp colling fan is working or not. if it is not working the same problem can occur.
