Question about Optoma HD65 DLP Projector
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 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?
