Hi,

One good thing is that you are running XP. Will work on the premise (that you have posted) worked before and the driver (ForceWare91.31) was the only thing changed.

Let's try the easy ones first. Activate twin/dual view in your Display Properties. Right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, select monitor 1 or 2 depending which is your primary and which is your projector. Check (or uncheck-whichever works) on box "Extend....". Apply, OK.

or

do the same with nView Properties.

The hard ones are registry and/or inf editing, though I am reluctant to even suggest.

Incidentally, there is an application that is supposed to facilitate twin or dual view configuration, UltraMon. This may be better/safer way to address your concern.

If all else fails, you may have to rollback/downgrade your driver.

Cheers.

SOURCE: optoma ep739 won't power up

The lamp cover has a disconnect that won't allow power while the cover is off. Sometimes the piece of metal gets bent out of place.
Try removing the cover for the lamp, and bending the little piece of metal forward.

It worked for me!!!!

Took snow tires off and still sounds like I have them on also have a vibration in the steering wheel?


Steering wheel vibration is often caused by:
  • Out of balance tires
  • Bent wheels
  • Bad wheel or CV bearings
  • Loose suspension parts
"Road noise" is often caused by:
  • Bad wheel bearings or bad CV joints
I suggest checking for all of these.

Optoma HD80 flashing blue lights


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

What would cause vibration on my Suzuki gsxr 1100 pre-slingshot. The bike has bad handle bar vibration. My hands go numb even on a short trip. You can also feel the vibration through the bike.


It sounds like out of balance in the front wheel somewhere. Possibly a bad front tyre, the tire is damaged, bulged or blistered, or wheel buckled or simply out of balance.

Color wheel failed. Can I fix it myself??


If you contact Optoma and they have the part available then, yes you can fix it yourself. You have to be good at taking things apart and remembering how they go back together. Changing the color wheel assembly is not that hard.

Optoma ep739 color was going greenish so i replced the bulb and now it seems to be getting no power at all? i tried several outlets and still no power, no flashing light, no led, nothing. Any suggestions?


These units have many safety interlocks. First make sure that all of the doors that you opened are replaced correctly. If not, the interlocks will prevent any power from getting to the unit. Update this with what you find.

Optoma DV10 color wheel


Okay, I recently had a loud noise coming from my projector and found online meterial stating that the colour wheel had been damaged. So with a bit of guts I managed to open the projector and found the colour wheel missing a segment.

I removed the colour wheel and the broken piece of the segement and tried to contact Optoma. Optoma turned round and said they cannot sell me the the colour wheel, which got me very upset. Some people claim online that Optoma will sell you the part on a back order at £50. (if you can be a little specific on how you managed to convince them to sell you the part, would be great).

The only option I had available was to send my project to them and they would repair for an estimated cost of £125+VAT. Guess what, you can buy the entire projector off ebay for 150quid!!!

Anyways after fiddling around quite a big online I got fedup and decided to glue the broken segment together and it SOLVED the loud vibration problem. I have colour and picture.

Becareful not to tighten the colour wheel screw too tight orelse it will break another piece of segement (Like I did).

Here are instructions on how to open up the projector.

http://www.geekfest.info/DV10/dv10.html

I cannot guarantee this will work for you as it depends on how badly you have shattered the colour wheel segment, so do at your own risk. I had two piece of the segment broken and a third by tightening the colour wheel screw too tight.

This will work for awhile but the colour wheel does need replaceing one day. If anyone can tell me how you can get Optoma to sell you the colour wheel would be great.

Best of Luck
