Question about Optoma H30 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Size of Projection

I have an Optoma projector for a rear view screen which is in my office window. In order to line up the projector with the screen and not have it in the way of staff or customers we have had to mount it around 15' or so from the screen and just cannot get the size to reduce to the size of the screen which is 50".... Can anyone tell me how to do this? ..... or not, as the case maybe. I wondered if the distance was the problem?

Thanks for any help and advice anyone can offer.

Hi Jez

Distance is definitelly your problem here - the lens can only reduce so much. You will have to move the unit.

I have a Optoma EP721. It now projects verticle lines on the screen background. How do you eliminate the verticle lines ?

It sounds like you have a projector which is in need of professional repair. You should eliminate source material problems first though by checking the projector with alternative input sources, ensuring that you also check the cables, and various inputs on the projector.
If the lines are present on all the inputs then the fault is internal to the projector. This will require professional repair. The first point of contact should be Optoma at (UK) or (USA). They should be able to give you an idea of ow much it may potentially cost to have your projector repaired and (most importantly) check whether it is under warranty. Most Optoma projectors ship with 3 year warranties these days.

Optoma RD-50 DLP has dark vertical shadow on right side of screen

turning off the main can be very harmful to rear projectors if you dont wait for the cooling off period, for instance when you turn off the tv from the remote, the fans inside are still on in order to dissipate the heat given out by the lamp. as a result some of the lens inside the engine may have burns-in caused by excess of heat.thus leading to shadows on the screen.

hope this helps

please rate me!
