Optoma hd65 doesn't turn on

The same problem i have was posted in your site on March16 2010 but couldn't find a solution to it:
(as posted in your site)
I have exactly the same problem with my Optoma HD65. When I turn it on the fan starts but the bulb does not light up. The fan goes through a couple of high speed/low speed cycles and then stops and the red bulb light comes on.

I thought it was the bulb the first time it happened but after letting it sit for a while powered off it started again. The next time I went to use it though it wouldn't start and it hasn't started since

Any suggestion?
Thank you

I've had the exact same problem with no good solution. New bulb, same problem. If I let it set plugged in overnight it sometimes works. But I think we all know it's an Optoma design flaw. My unit is only two months old and I'm sending this piece of **** back.

SOURCE: My Optoma HD65 Projector stops starts working and

Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.

SOURCE: need to somehow hook up speakers to hd65 optoma.

HI there the normal way to sort this problem in most installations is to run active speakers straight from the sound card on the pc /laptop that is running your presentation and nothing to do with the projector

skytec make a good range of quality active speaker available on the net

If this site says JUICER MANUAL, why am I seeing microwaves? \r\n If you can't run a site, how can we expect accurate directions and maunuals? Shame on you...

I don't know what your looking for but it appears your first post was you simply complaining. First off you haven't stated a brand or model for the juicer you are looking for, which would be very helpful in someone else finding something for you that you couldn't find.If you would like your manual found please post the right information and someone will try and find it for you.

Try cleaning the filter. If the area where it is installed is enclosed this will also cause over heating.. Make sure you have adequate air flow in the place where it is located and clean the filter.
