Question about Optoma RD50 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have an Optoma RD 50, I was receiving a msg that read "lamp is reaching end". I replaced the lamp. It came on worked for about 30 mins. I turned it off, when I turned back on, the lamp light turned solid red, after a few mins of it sitting there it powed down and went turned itself off. Also when it was playing I had about a 4in shadow on the right hand side of the screen.
Hi. I had exactly the same issue after replacing my lamp last year using one of the cheap lamp options on ebay. What I found was that the lamp for the RD50 was changed at some point. The newer lamp has a higher ignition voltage (from memory old = 5kv and new = 15kv). Sometimes by luck an older RD50 can occassionally start one of the new lamps). All ebay lamps and cheaper options on the internet were e23h (new lamp). I needed the e23 (no h). Had to settle for $300+ lamp in casing and got them to check lamp was e23 (no h) before sending. All smiles again but cheaper lamp would have been nice. Hope this helps if you still have the problem.

Replace the fuse thats on the little board beside the new lamp. that will reset the buld to new. I understand that the fuse will blow right after a new lamp is installed. It will reset the counter to 0.
Hope this helps
