Question about Televison & Video
I have a new Optoma HD81-LV. It has worked beautifully and impressively for about 100 hours, then some thin, evenly spaced vertical white lines appeared on the right half of the projected image. The lines remain regardless of video source, resetting, and even when not connected to the image processor - implying that it is something going on inside the projector itself. I have sent several emails to OPTOMA for help, but haven't gotten a reply yet.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

My EP719 had the same problem. Did it once, briefly, soon after I bought it, then not again until recently, when the line came back more frequently and wider.
The projector was 20 days past warranty, and the company would not honor. So much for customer satisfaction and loyalty. Last piece of Optoma equipment I will ever buy!
Anyway, I found a web item on another model of Optoma projector with the same problem. The solution this guy tried was -- I kid you not -- rapping on the thing. With nothing to lose, I tried this on mine. Tapped lightly on the top and noticed a change in the width of the line. Hmmm ... it was sensitive to this.
Tapped harder. The line got narrower. Rapped pretty hard -- thump! -- and the line disappeared.
Since then I have been running the projector for hours, turning it on and off, letting it cool down, starting it up again. And the line seems to be gone. It may come back, of course, so this gonzo fix may not be permament. But if it works while I'm using it at a presentation, think of the amusement it will cause!
