Optoma projector image yellowing

Hi, I thought we may need to change the lamp, but when we asked a theater shop they said we need to get the projector serviced.

The image on the screen is yellowing, can you tell me which issue it is, lamp to be changed or a service of the projector?

Very odd problem. Depending on the hours of the projector it could have some glass in it that over heated. Contact Optoma directly, my guess is they will work with you.. good luck

If you have recently replaced the bulb you may need to reset the lamp counter in the projector menu.
If you have not replaced the bulb, the projector may be shutting down due to over-heating. Check that the projector is clear of as much dust and debris as possible.

My HD20 also broke after about 1000 hours. Their estimate is $703.00 to replace main board and lamp module. Image shuts off automatically after 3 mins of starting. Lamp fail led goes solid red.

I replaced the bulb on my optoma ep1691 projector but the picture still goes out and the red lamp light lights up. I reset and confirmed the reset via the menu. How can I resolve this issue?

It seems OEM lamp that was replaced in projector is not good, please return this lamp and ask another lamp to solve projector problem. Projector seems fine and has no issue, it is replacement low priced lamp that is causing problem.
I would recommend to buy original lamp from Optoma Support.

Optoma H31 - Turns itself off !

sounds like the projector lamp to me. the rated hours are always up to the published hours and never "this is what you will achieve." I would suggest getting a lamp as you will need one shortly by the sounds of it. In many cases the projector does this as it is programmed to protect itself from the lamp shattering inside the projector. Let me know if you would like a quotation for a lamp as we ship internationally. Regards Kevin Andreassend. +64-9-4142348

Optoma EP716 turns on but no picture displays

Don't ever just unplug the power cord while it is on. The bulb needs to cool down with the fan still on.
Did you ever connect a source?

Projector won't switch on

You may have a failed power supply or a blown lamp. If you have access to a spare lamp, try changing it. (as described in the user guide). If you know the lamp is good for sure, then it is better to call service folks.

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.
