Question about Optoma HD70 DLP Projector
I had a similar situation, but we fixed it. I can't exactly tell you why it worked nor whether or not it will for you. Here's the deal.
First, take your lamp out and re-seat it. This is one of the easiest ways to get a projector not to power up.
In our case, the thing would fire up, show us the Optoma logo, the blue screen, and then within about 15 seconds, it shut down, lamp fail light came on, and only a hard power reset would let us try again. The bulb was good; after all, it came on, right?
So, we kept playing this game of power up, fail, unplug, replug. I gave up and went to do something else. I came back to the projector, needing it to let me see a screen to configure (weird I know, but that's how it was). Anyhow, at this point, the projector stayed on, no problems. So, I kept it running through the night with a kitchen timer on. After 5 1/2 hours without failure, we knew we were set.
The point? If it's powering up and showing picture for even a brief period, try cycling it several times. However, if it's overheating or showing any other signs of distress, you may make it worse using my approach. I think we may have just been lucky or the projector gnomes came in the night.
