My PJ-TX100 ist 28 months old and has worked around 400h, but now I have a problem with starting up the Projector.
After turning on the main switch on the back, the projector shows an orange "Power"-led, the other leds (temp, lamp) dont light.
It seems like the normal Stand-By, as described in the manual.
But at this point it won´t go any further, I can not start the Projector by pressing Power switch either on Remote or directly on the projectors.
No reaction to anything, even if I take out the lamp and try to start, I get the same state (Power-LED Orange, others dont light)
I took out the lamp, but it seems to be ok, no damage or dark clouds or similar is visible.
Hope you can help.
Does by the way anyone know where to get schematics for the PJ-TX100?
P.S.: Please excuse my poor english, I´m from Austria and normally speak german.

This is a serious issue and It seems as though you have got a defective peice. Either the PJ was damaged when in transit or it was a faulty piece. The PJ could have a defective lamp because if it is trying to trip off on loading , then the chances are that the Lamp is taking intoo much current and tripping off the circuit. Since your PJ is brand new, if it is under warranty , you must take the privilege of free replacement of the part, than to try any repairs. What could be done is to check again for power connections faulty voltage. If not since the trouble shooting was ably done there is not much to check than to take this decision. You must ask them to give you extended warranty and claim for damages if they seems unhelpful. Hope you decide with my advice. Good day
First, to rule out true overheating, clean any dust filters and air-access areas. There might be enough dust on the filter to cause a gradual build-up of heat which could trip one of the temperature sensors in the unit. I clean my projector once a week--There might be a cooling fan going bad--after a while, heat causes the fan motor to start to drag and slows down the air flow. Also, there might be a temp sensor that is shutting down the unit prematurely.--Rick
Simply just navigate the meny system until you find the high altitude option, the switch it on
The projector should work fine now.
If you experience problems with your Optoma projector after onle 3 mnths, assuming it was new when you bought it you still have 9 months of warranty you know, you shouldnt hesitate to bother the seller
check the wireing in the new bulb . My new one had the wires in the wrong holes like if there are 4 slots in the connector then my orignal was in slots 1 and 4 the new one was in slots 1 and 3 so I took the wire out and put it in the #4 slot and put it in and unpluged the machine and did a reset and restart and it came on green. Hope this helps.
Contact the manufacturer for a firm ware upgrade. My two brother in laws/sisters own this same pj and had the same issues you are talking about. Once they installed the update [aka: firmware upgrade]it created a solution to the problem.
Let me know how it goes. They can either mail you a CD, direct you to where on their website, otherwise email you the update to download. You have to connect your pj as well.
Let me know how that goes. I'm fairly confident that will fix it. There was a certain time frame [manufacturer dates], and serial numbers that had these issues.
s-video carries luminance and chromanance.
In simple terms, luma provides a a black and white picture, chroma the color data.
without chroma, you get no color.
- the cable is bad (usually in the form of bent/broken pins in the connector ends
- the source device is bad
- the projector input is bad
