We have an Acer P3250 projector that keeps prompting for a password upon start-up. However, when we enter the security password provided with the unit, it says it is "invalid".

Found an earlier suggestion on this site if you don't have the provided password and also already tried 1234.

1. Turn on the projector 2. Press "Power > Left > Left > MENU" (Opens the system menu)
3. Choose "RD Menu"
4. Choose " EEPROM Restore" (the projector turn off and the power lamp blink red for about 1 minut. Then it stops)
5. Turn on the projector again and it should work again

Acer P3250 will not acccept password

  • If you do not have a remote here is how to reset the filter time. Use the "Menu" bottun to get the "easy menu" to display. Push the down arrow until you get to "Filter Time," then push and hold the RIGHT arrow to reset the filter time. DO NOT try to reset using the "Reset" option on the easy menu, it will not work.

My HD80 has about 700 hours, original bulb assembly, was working fine until I got curious and "activated" the auto off function while going through the menu. Now it will power up, lamp does not go to

Ensure a video source is connected to the projector (VGA, DVD, etc)

Unplug the projector to make sure it has completely shut down (not just went into sleep mode)
Plug in power and power on the projector (make sure video source is on first)
The projector should turn on and switch to the video source (manually select if not)
Once you can see the video source, push menu and turn off auto-off.

Auto-off should only work when the projector detect a video source is no longer present on the selected input. So if you are turning on the projector with no video source connected, it will usually turn off shortly after being turned on.

Forgot the password, was in storage for since dec 2008. tried the initialization procedure out of the manual and . . . no change.

I just wanted to clarify a few things,
The initialize procedure is:
  • power on projector
  • press enter
  • turn off the projector by pressing
  • unplug the projector
  • plug the projector back in

Once the projector has been initialized the factory password is:
"up - right - down - down - left - up - right - down - left" and hit enter
This will allow to then enter in a new password
I hope this helps,

I have a Optoma HD80 and the bulb has about 450 hours on it. I cleaned the projector, unpluged it for several mins and still turns off after starting. If the bulb has only 450 hours on it, why should I...

You have to check the bulb first. Its not the matter of how many hours you have used it. just check the lamp. may be it burned out. Its only a bulb it can burnout at any time. also check the lamp colling fan is working or not. if it is not working the same problem can occur.

Keeps turning off

So, Shutting down to protect itself. The error light says it needs service, Cycling power makes it work for a few more minutes, then the Panasonic safety circuit shuts it down. Projector shuts down when bulb life gets to the danger zone, and also when its heat sensor says there is a problem.
So you have a bulb life issue or you have a dirty projector / fan cooling issue??

I say clean it up with some compressed air when it is cool, then check the # of hours the bulb has on it (in the menu).

Lastly brace yourself, the bulb is gonna hurt you :-$

Projector was turned off wrong and now wont turn back on.

if the led flashes once in 2-second intervals and you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do, the ballast is bad. if it flashes 2 times, the lamp is past 3000 hours. 4 times, fan error. 5 times, temp too high and it needs to cool.

I've had the same problem with my projector three times (usually whenever there's a sports championship). You just need to call optoma, get an RMA number, and ship it to them. Theoretically they'll fix it under warranty and send it back free.

Wil not turn on

Either your lamp is burned out or you had it unplugged for a while.
If you have had it unplugged for a while, plug it in, make sure the yellow power light is on, then wait for about an hour. Don't repeatly try to turn it on in the meantime. After about an hour or two plugged in,,,,, it should power up. Then reset your lamp timer through the menu.
