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

I have an Optoma hd65 projector.
The bulb died, so i replaced it with new one, projector turns on, fan on, but bulb never lights up.
After a few seconds the red bulb indicator on top comes on and stays on.

I heard you have to reset the bulb timer, but i cant access the menu since the bulb wont turn on!

I heard there may be a way to reset lamp timer on projector itself?

is this most likely the problem?

    I have just replaced the bulb in my HD65. You do not have to reset the bulb timer before you can see the menu.
    For those people who replace the bulb and the fan comes on and goes through a couple of cycles of high/low fan followed by red bulb light. If your projector is out of warranty then this may be worth a try.
    I opened my projector and noticed that there is a small PCB (approx 1.5cm x 1 cm) at the front of the projector mounted on a bracket (you can easily see it when you take the cover off) with three wires from it red, black and white which connect to the main board via a little plug. I had knocked one of these wires off as they are extremely fragile and needed to solder it back on before the new bulb would turn on. Also it is critical that this board is put back on the bracket as if it is not in the correct position then the bulb will not light up.

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.

Same here. My bulb apparently burned out after only about 700 hours. I just bought a brand new replacement bulb and it still will not start up.

I have exactly the same problem with my Optoma HD65. When I turn it on the fan starts but the bulb does not light up. The fan goes through a couple of high speed/low speed cycles and then stops and the red bulb light comes on.

I thought it was the bulb the first time it happened but after letting it sit for a while powered off it started again. The next time I went to use it though it wouldn't start and it hasn't started since.

Any ideas or should I send it back to optoma for repair?

MY OPTOMA HD65 KEEP TURNING OFF AFTER 1 TO 2 MIN. OF USE THE FAN IS RUNNING WHAT ELSE COULD BE WRONG WITH IT IT IS ONLY 1 YEAR 4 MONTHS OLD ..IT ALSO HAD A NEW BULB


Try cleaning the filter. If the area where it is installed is enclosed this will also cause over heating.. Make sure you have adequate air flow in the place where it is located and clean the filter.

When i start a projector after few min screen becomes blank and projectors red led glows.Please provide the help.It is very argent.


well try this....

Before replacing your bulb, fan or any other component try first cleaning your optoma realy good!! HD70 doesnt comes with any kind of filter so you can imagine the amound of dust can be.
The most importent thing is to blow away any dust from your color wheel + the sensor attached to it .

for farther troubleshoting clean your fan's.
there are 2 fan's insinde the HD70.

probably the most problems will be solved by cleening the color wheel!!
if the problem is not solved ,chack the lemp and the fans if they work properlly.

Hey my optoma hd65 bulb blew so i replaced it and when i powered it back up i received the fan lock error


the lamp probably blew because the fan stopped. if the lamp can't cool down, it blows. you'll have to find out which fan and replace it.

My Optoma HD65 Projector stops starts working and


Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.

Optoma HD65 bulb only 108 hrs old having difficulty starting up


Use the warranty! since you anly had it for 8 weeks, and the waaranty last for one year, go back with it and get it repaired or get a new bulb. A buld last at least 2500 hours, in eco mode it last for over 3000 hours.

Good luck to you
