Hi Guys,I have just found your fantastic site.I am really in need of some words of wisdom. I recently retubed my 701 with a brand new green tube.I have done the retubing before on other sets and all has been fine.I ran the Barco tube run in cycle for 2 evenings and on the third evening I fired her up and within 15 min the green tube was locked on a very high output! the flyback lines were showing it was that bright.All other functions fine.** smoke or smell.Tried turning off and on.The run in cycle is **t accessable **w and the most important clue is that on the control board the "CYCLE" light is flashing rapidly.None of the front fault lights are lit however.Please help

I would send to a projector repair services to get a free diagnosis. I got my projector checked at TP matrix projector repairs- the number is 0161 626 4067. They sorted the colour disfigurations out on my projector really quickly and cheaper than most other service providers i found. it was a sanyo projector- but they said they can fix any make.
Sonmetimes projectors just need the optical prism cleaned out. TP did a really good job on mine.
go into the menu and reset to factory default settings. if that does not help, you have a bad polerizer (light color filter) on one of the lcd panels. sharp will sell the individual parts if you want to fix it yourself. if you want them to do it, they'll replace the entire optical engine and charge you a fortune.
I would use the s-video connection even though I see word that the Sky+ box does not have automatic aspect ratio switching on the s-video output.
You could also use an SCART to RGB cable but the picture quality will only be marginally read:un-noticeably better.
Here is an s-video cable:http://www.rselectronics.com/Catalog/ViewPart.aspx?Part=CSV-06&MFG=QVS
And here is the SCART to RGB:
Your best bet on getting your hands on a Service Manual would be to contact Optoma themself.
As for changing the colour wheel , it is pretty straight forward if you were able to open up the unit and get to it.
The colourwheel is mounted with three tiny scrws to a bracket in which it sits. And the bracket in it's turn is fastenend to the body of the Projector with two tiny screws.
First unscrew the bracket from the casing of the Projector and then take off the three screws that holds the Colour wheel to the bracket. Replace and do the whole proses again - but obviously just the other way round.
This is really easy to do yourself.
Give me a shout if you need any further assistance.
