    Hi kitgallini, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?

    I will open it up tonight and take a look at the fuse. I have not checked it yet. The progjector has worked perfect, and then one day, it just failed to turn on. Tried disconnecting power, different cord, etc., but no luck. My best guess is fuse or power supply, but hoping someone might be familar with this issue. Thanks!

Why would my projector refuse to start with a seemingly intact light bulb?


If you only have 300 hours on it it should still be under warranty. Before doing something to void that I would check with Optoma techs.

Does the Optoma HD20 DLP projector have a air filter? If it does, where is it located?


Hello

The Optoma HD20P doesn't have an air filter.
If you remove the covers you will find 2 cooling fans that get a build up of dust on the leading edges of the fan blades.
These can easily be cleaned with a small paint brush and a drinking straw to blow out the excess dust.
If you are having overheating problems, please view my post on replacing the heat sink compound on the image processor.

Cheers

Optoma hd20 fan shut down


I put this here because when I was experiencing the same issue I found there was very little info online for this topic. Optoma asked me $125 just to take a look at my out of warranty hd20 projector after I started getting the dreaded "fan failure" error message, I got this error mesage after replacing the bulb (its important to note that the bulb did explode in the unit so some of the debris may have lodged in the fan.) Optoma also kept saying stuff like motherboard issues and fan sensors on the phone. Everything I've read has said the repair price is so high on these issues that it is better to upgrade to a new projector so I resigned myself to doing that very thing. Then I ran up on this video and thought what the heck. So I took the plunge and popped the case off and sure enough the same little fan was stuck and covered with dust. I gently moved it with a screw driver and blew all the dust out of it. Plugged it back in and I'm experiencing glorious 135" hd once again.

My hd20 has a power-icon light of amber, when power button is pushed it goes to flashing green and it doesn't turn on, just flashes green


Have you tried decreasing the resolution of the computer?
When the resolution is too high for the projector, something similar to your description happens.

My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)


The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

I just got a new Optoma HD20 and only after 1day of use it is not showing HDMI signal, although it is showing VGA signal. Why is this?


Hi miracles4all: I solved HDMI signal issue in my Optoma HD20. In my case it was the lack of contact between the HDMI cable plug male ending and the Optoma HD20 HDMI female port. My 35ft cable plug male HDMI ending was not completely "seating" in the Optoma HD20 HDMI female port. I solved the problem by purchasing a HDMI female to female coupler and adding a 3ft HDMI cable that had a slim male ending. This 3ft HDMI extension cable made better contact to the Optoma HDMI port and the projector was immediately able to detect HDMI signal. Hope this helps you... kaufmanekpr
