The solution from bjwjb posted on Dec 30, 2009 is absolutely correct:"There is a piece on the bulb cover panel that you take off in order to change the bulb that fits down inside the bulb assembly when you put the panel back on. The bulb cover panel and the part of the panel that goes down into the bulb assembly must be present or the projector will not power up (there will be no lights either)." I would add to that once the cover is placed back, but before the screws of the bulb cover are tightened, firm pressure should be place on on the bulb cover panel on the spot placed where the plastic protrusion (a plastic "stick" about 1.5 inches long that fits into a void in the bulb assembly) goes into the bulb assembly. You should/may hear a "click", indicating that the protruding plastic piece has been fully inserted into the bulb assembly and makes contact with whatever contraption is inside the assembly to enable power-up. If no pressure is exerted the plastic protusion may not extend down far enough to make contact to enable power-up. In such case the bulb cover panel may be slightly bulging in the location of the protrusion. You would still be able to tighten the bulb cover panel screws, because the plastic is flexible. In such case you may find that the screw closest to the location of the plastic protrusion may need pushed in more. In this condition, even though you may think the cover is properly placed, the plastic protrusion is not fully inserted and does not make contact and there are no lights or power. Just take of the bulb cover panel place it back following the instructions above.

I had already disassembled my projector and was ready to bring it in for service when I did an internet search and saw the advice from bjwjb. Thanks very much!

BJWJB is right. In some cases however, no matter how hard the lids are pushed down, power will not run to the projector. We addressed this design flaw in a way that disrupts this feature.
Our solution was to put a small piece of electrical tape over the contact point, ensuring the tiny metalic gate would stay in the “on” (for lack of a better term) position.

WARNING-- POWER WILL RUN TO THE PROJECTOR EVEN IF THE LID IS OFF. THIS COULD PRESENT SOME DANGER WITH THE FAN TURNING ON OR HARMFUL LIGHT SHINNING IN YOUR EYES.
Whatever, worked for us.

The lamp timer should reset as soon as you replace the lamp. if there are no leds lit on the top, then you have a power supply issue.

My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)


The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

No Picture


Ok. It still might be the bulb, if not make sure it is plugged in to a working outlet. Also, if that doesn't work unplug, wait 1 hour, push the power button (with it unplugged) then plug it back in. If nothing fixes your problem, it is the power supply.

Optoma EP719 Projector Won't Power Back On


When you first replaced the bulb it went back on and then later it did not. Most projectors have a safety switch that it is activated upon the bulbs cover placed. Once the cover is removed it activates the switch and shuts down power to bulb. It sounds based on your remarks, that this switch may have intermitten problems. I would suggest, locate this switch and verify its operation. Or, make sure the bulb cover is placed and/or secured properly.

NEC MT1050 Lamp Error


Does the status light stay on red? If it does then the lamp timer has exspired and will not let the projector turn back on until it is reset, at which time you should replace the lamp. To reset the timer you need the remote control, with the unit plugged in in standby mode hold down the power off button for 30 to 45 seconds until the status light goes off.

Flasing red light


The flashing red indicates that either the fileter cover or the lamp cover is not installed correctly. If both are installed properly and secured, the unit will require service.

Reset The Lamp Timer.

While simultaneously holding down (+ . >) and AUTO SYNC on the projector, Press ( I ) ON and ( - . < ) on the projector.

"LAMP 0000H" is displayed, indicating that the lamp timer is reset.

NOTE..... Make sure only to reset the lamp timer only when replacing the lamp. If you reset the lamp timer and continue to use the same lamp, this may cause the lamp tp become damaged or explode...
