Optoma HD81-LV ... white lines on projected image

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.

This has happened to many of these tvs, I would return it if you can, this isn't worth it to get fixed. I'm sorry if you can't return it, yours lasted less than many I have heard of

My projector is projecting an image that is getting darker and darker


hi
this sounds to me like the projector lamp is coming to the end of its life. projector lamps last about 1000 hours of reasonable quality, but if it gets turned on and off regularly then that number will decrease.
you might want to buy a new lamp if there not to expensive or maybe to into having it refurbished.
also dirt in the projector can decrease brightness. so maybe you could see if the manufacturer will clean it for cheap
hope that helped

Optoma EP732H Projector - Image is Whitewashed


Hi tourblack

I wouldn't think that this is a lamp issue , as the lamp will make the picture fade away in brightness and wouldn't look white washed.

Check if the brightness is set to 50% and the contrast on 50% as well.

This could be a colourwheel that is in need of replacement.

Vertical white line


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!
