The problem sounds like the lamp ballast is bad--it's a circuit that initially starts the lamp and then keeps it burning--the lamps are like a welder's arc inside of a glass globe. When you push the power button, the ballast uses a spark of electricity (sort of like a spark plug) to get the initial arc going and then switches to low voltage, but HIGH amps to keep it going.---Rick

Optoma hd65 has a red light. Only had it for 5 months. How do you fix?


The red indicator light usually comes on when something needs attention. Most often it has to do with the lamp timer or the filter timer. The projector keeps track of how long it's been since you've changed the bulb or cleaned the filter(s). You can reset these timers in the menu. Be sure to clean the filter before you reset the timer

Try putting the bulb into normal (rather than eco) setting.
Check the bulb is seated correctly.
If this does not help you may have to contact your bulb supplier to see if they can swap bulb for you.

The problem with my projector is it keeps flashing green and red


hi,

your statement is not very specific but if the power led is flashing green and the lamp led is flashing red that indicates a fan failure.

contact optoma support here and enquire if you can have a warranty repair, or how much it may cost to have the fault fixed.

Our projector indicates that the light bulb needs to be replaced after replacing the light bulb once it still indicates that it needs to be replaced.


This is the excerpt from the manual on how to reset the lamp life timer.

Turn on the projector and use "Lamp Reset" after the lamp module is replaced.
Lamp Reset: (i) Press "Menu" ?§ (ii) Select "Options" ?§ (iii) Select "Lamp settings" ?§ (iv) Select "Lamp Reset ?§ (v) Select "Yes".

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

Optoma Projector power LED is blinking green,funs are not working, lamp not function, how can i solve this problem


i'd say power supply issue, but the led is blinking green. this means that it thinks it's in warmup/standby mode. but if nothing's running, the main board might be bad and needs to be replaced.
