Question about Optoma TX1080 Projector

Open Question

I have an OPTOMA TX1080 Projector being controlled via RS232. When it sits for more than 20-30 minutes, it won't turn back on with an ON command or the remote. In order to get control of the projector again the plug must be unplugged and plugged back in. Once on, RS232 ON and OFF commands work normally. OFF, wait 60 seconds, goes to Standby mode. On turns it back on. This works unless the units sits for 20-30 minutes in Standby mode. Then we need to Unplug. Any Ideas?

Hi,

One good thing is that you are running XP. Will work on the premise (that you have posted) worked before and the driver (ForceWare91.31) was the only thing changed.

Let's try the easy ones first. Activate twin/dual view in your Display Properties. Right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, select monitor 1 or 2 depending which is your primary and which is your projector. Check (or uncheck-whichever works) on box "Extend....". Apply, OK.

or

do the same with nView Properties.

The hard ones are registry and/or inf editing, though I am reluctant to even suggest.

Incidentally, there is an application that is supposed to facilitate twin or dual view configuration, UltraMon. This may be better/safer way to address your concern.

If all else fails, you may have to rollback/downgrade your driver.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Optoma H56 - turns off just after start up.

You have a blown bulb. I have the same projector and it had the same problem. The bulb is blown replace it and you should be fine.

If you are not sure of my solution you need to know that your projector will look like it is starting up and the bulb will partially light up but never come up to full brightness, then the projector will shut down. This will happen over and over until it just gets to the point it just turns on (the fan comes on and then about 30 - 60 seconds later the fan turns off.

Replace the bulb and you should be fine.

Been there done that!

SOURCE: dvd10 optoma projector makes a loud noise

Hi, I'm not sure if it's the same problem I had..
I had it on picture mute, for maybe 15 mins, which may not have been a good idea. While it was muted, it made a sparking sound, and then a very loud grinding noise. When turned off, the lound noise stops, and the fan continues as usual for about a minute. As soon as it's turned back on, the grinding noise is back. But the logo seemed to display ok.

I took it in for repairs, and they said they needed to replace the color wheel to fix the problem.

SOURCE: optoma ep739 won't power up

The lamp cover has a disconnect that won't allow power while the cover is off. Sometimes the piece of metal gets bent out of place.
Try removing the cover for the lamp, and bending the little piece of metal forward.

It worked for me!!!!

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.

Usually, that means that there is an issue with the cable connecting the computer to the projector. Check to make sure none of the pins are bent or broken. Aslo see if a differnt cable works correctly.

Optoma DV10 MovieTime Color Wheel replacement


Hi guys

Your best bet on getting your hands on a Service Manual would be to contact Optoma themself.

As for changing the colour wheel , it is pretty straight forward if you were able to open up the unit and get to it.

The colourwheel is mounted with three tiny scrws to a bracket in which it sits. And the bracket in it's turn is fastenend to the body of the Projector with two tiny screws.

First unscrew the bracket from the casing of the Projector and then take off the three screws that holds the Colour wheel to the bracket. Replace and do the whole proses again - but obviously just the other way round.

This is really easy to do yourself.

Give me a shout if you need any further assistance.

Thanks for using Fixya and good luck.
