I have an optoma ep745 projector. it starts up fine then after about 2 minutes it turns off and the lamp light comes on. I have purchased a replacement bulb and it causes the same condition.

    The only issue is now that the projector thinks the lamp is bad, it wont light up long enough to get to the menu. Is there a way to reset the timer without any output?

  • scottyadj Aug 02, 2009

    I cannot see the menu because the lamp will no longer light up. Once the power is pressed, the fan comes up with no lamp for about 10 seconds, then the lamp light will come on. I never get a chance to enter the menu to reset it. Is there a way to reset the timer without the lamp turning on?

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. After replacing the lamp you also need to reset the lamp counter. From the main menu reset the lamp counter and after that restart the projector it will then work fine,

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

    Hi



    Unfortunately there is no other way to reset the timer. Please see the steps for replacing the lamp and check if you have replaced the lamp same way:



    1. Switch off the power to the projector by pressing the Power/Standby button.

    2. Allow the projector to cool down for at least 30 minutes.

    3. Disconnect the power cord.

    4. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws from the cover.

    5. Push up and remove the cover.

    6. Remove the 2 screws from the lamp module.

    7. Pull out the lamp module.

    To replace the lamp module, reverse the previous steps.





    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.





    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.

I've had the same problem with my projector three times (usually whenever there's a sports championship). You just need to call optoma, get an RMA number, and ship it to them. Theoretically they'll fix it under warranty and send it back free.
