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.

Re: Size of Projection

Hi Jez

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

There is a white line in the top 1/8th of the projection. It is solid and about 1/18th in size relative to the screen. it has multi colors continuously flashing in it.

That is a pixel line, they can go defective vertical or horizontal. Bad connection possibly due to impact, stress or manufacturing flaw. The DLP image generator driver board or DMD chip is so complex, small and delicate that any repair would most likely be expensive and involve very precise tools and some electronics experience. If you get inside it OK make sure the DMD chip is snug into all contacts. It is possible you might need the 8060-6038b chip available on Ebay.

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.
