Hi Striker 53

Yes , a flickering image and dimming is a very clear indication that the lamp is going.

To make 100% sure and to give you some peace of mind - take out the lamp and you will either see vein like looking marks on the lamp or discolouration or even that there is a bubble at the end of the lamp's shaft.

Do keep in mind that a lamp normally gets a rating of say 2000-3000 hours , but that is only a estimate from the manufacturers factory. I've had lamps that had less than 300 hours on them , that needed replacement.

Once you replaced the lamp , remember to reset the lamp timer.

Epson powerlite home cinema 8100 problem with picture


Dark pictures after a lamp change normally indicate that the lamp isn't aligned properly, or that it has been touched with bare fingers and caused a black mark, or it's an inferior (budget) lamp.

Hello,

I think this is a lamp issue. Even though your lamp might have an advertised time of 3000 hrs from Dell, it can fail and dim a lot earlier than that. Often within 1000 hrs a projector lamp's brightness can be reduced by up to 40%. Projector lamps brightness and lamp life varies according to how you use your projector and the environment it is in. Our company sells projector lamps and has created a YouTube video to help people get the most out of their projector lamps. You can see the video below. If you decide to buy a new lamp we have the lamp you need in stock at Projector Lamp Experts.

Hope this helps..

HD70 DLP Projector: The projector is used and about a year old. It cur...


Did this start occurring after you replaced the lamp?

The reason I ask is I had the same issue after changing the lamp and it was caused because when I took out the old lamp I noticed dust in the lamp housing which I attempted to blow away.

This caused the problem because some dust got further into the projector, specifically around the color wheel. I sorted it out by taking the projector apart following the instructions here:

http://tantht.blogspot.com/2009/02/how-to-remove-dust-blobs-from-optoma.html

(note my HD70 was out of warranty, if yours is not, I would recommend contacting Optoma to get it fixed).

Follow the above instructions to step 14 and then locate the color wheel which is at the front of the projector behind a dark gray, plastic type square shaped cover.

You have to be very careful here, but remove the color wheel (there is one screw holding it in place) - note it

Picture keeps flickering after 15 min


if you hear chirping, too, replace the colorwheel. also check the lamp timer. if it's close to 2000hours (or the inside of the lamp is bulging or blackened), replace the lamp. if the lamp is new and the colorwheel doesn't chirp, replace the ballast/power supply.

LP600 - Grainy picture, very poor quality


Single chip DLP projectors use a spinning color wheel between the lamp and the DMD (mirror chip) to produce colors. If the wheel rotation/synchronization is disturbed, colors will not be displayed correctly.
In my case it looks like the wheel became un-synchronized, probably because the projector was dusty/dirty inside (a light senor is used to detect the wheel position), resulting in a grainy, slightly flickering image.
I simply blew out the components with a can of 'Dust-off' and, using a small tool, rotated the color wheel by hand to make sue it wasn't rubbing or jammed.
I reassembled & started the projector and the image was back to normal.

I've had the same problem with my projector three times (usually whenever there's a sports championship). You just need to call optoma, get an RMA number, and ship it to them. Theoretically they'll fix it under warranty and send it back free.

The picture shows dark


Hi there

Take out the Projector's lamp and check for any black marks ( almost looks like veins ) on the inside of the bulb.

If you spot anything on the lamp , your lamp will need replacement.

If you can't see anything - then you might be in for a new Mainboard.

Very expensive exercise !

This is caused by the color wheel sensor failure. The sensor is mounted very near the lamp and suffered extreme temperature. This problem can be corrected by installing the redesigned color wheel sensor. You also need to refocus the sensor due to different focal length. HP also recommended to replace the temp sensor cable. If you still have the projector, I can fix the problem for you.
