How old is the projector?? First, unplug the unit and check the lamp--A healthy lamp should have clear glass--not darkened, smoky, bulged, or blistered. Sometimes, by simply unplugging and then re-inserting the lamp, you cause the contacts to get a better connection, thereby making ignition easier. This is the simple stuff. If you have another, known-good lamp, insert it and try to get the projector to fire up. If this fails, or if after installing the original lamp the unit still won't kick on, the problem will need to be addressed by a service facility. When trying to turn on, you hear a "clicking" or small snapping sound but no lamp ignition, that is a symptom of a bad ballast(the circuit that ignites and keeps the lamp burning). Also, no sound may be heard. You can also look into the main lens and try to see small "lightning" flashes as the ballast tries to ignite the bulb. Usually, the ballast will try to ignite the lamp several times and, failing that, the unit is programmed to shut down.Hope I helped you.---Rick

Why won't my Optoma DV10 projector won't turn on?


On an Optoma DV10 if its not the lamp timer, then it might be a cooling fan that needs replacing. Take out the old one, and look-up its part number online. If you don't feel confident taking it apart, have a qualified person do this.

Optoma ep 1690, the on/standby led is flashing green but when I try to turn it on the temp and lamp led's flash twice and nothing happens, the on/standby continues to flash green.


The projector lamp life may have exceeded its safe limit, check your instruction manual, sometimes you have to hold the on or off button for 10 seconds to reset this. All manufacturers are different but that may be the problem.

Here is a copy of the manual, I havn't read it, my solution is from experience of other projectors.

Check the voltage at the lamp input from the ballast after connecting projector to mains supply. (Warning: Do not switch on the projector while checking the voltage. It will damage your multimeter) The lamp connection shall be removed. If the voltage is around 60 to 80 volts AC, then your ballast is OK. Check for fragments inside the lamp.

Optoma h31 stopped suddenly. I replaced the bulb, but the power button isnt flashing green, and I cant turn the unit on.


The little metal plate on the projector next to the bulb housing is not fully depressed (pressed down). The plastic cover is suppose to have a plastic piece protruding from it which is to depressed the metal plate when the cover is placed back on. If the metal piece is not pressed down, the projector will not light.

The amber led labeled lamp lit up on my optoma ds303 and the picture disappeared. I replaced the original lamp with an after market lamp I purchased online. It worked for 2hours or so then the amber lamp...


the reason that it turns on without hitting the power button is that it thinks it's still in cooldown mode. while it's on, check the lamp hours through the menu. if it's close to 2000 hours (or the inside of the lamp is blackened or bulging), replace it. after market lamps never seem to last that long. if the fans stay on when the lamp goes off, it could also be the colorwheel. listen for chirping. if it chirps, it's the colorwheel.
