Optoma EP725 projector - no menu displayed

I have an Optoma EP725 projector. It turns on fine, but only displays what i can only describe as "snow" (like on your TV) but it doesnt move.
I do not get the menu displayed at all...
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Not sure what is exactly going on, but it probably has to do with the mirror array being stuck, dirty, or both. The mirror array is a chip with thousands of mirrors that turn on and off the various pixels of the display. Seeing snow means that the chip is "stuck", and not receiving a moving signal. The unit will probably need servicing, but get an estimate first. The cost of repair can be considerable.

    Thanks for your rapid response.
    If it is the mirror array, can i buy a replacement to fit myself?Or should i give the old one a clean or something first?
    Do you know of a repair guide for this particular projector?
    Or where could i get it serviced? I live in Luton (England)

I my projector is new one used for 4 hrs, when i try to turn it on it just has a blinking green light. Please help Solve It! .


The blinking green light means the unit is either Powering On (Warming Up) or Powering Off (Cooling Down).

Powering On the Projector
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Securely connect the power cord and signal cable. When connected, the ON/STANDBY LED will turn Amber.
3. Turn on the lamp by pressing " " button either on the top of the projector or on the remote. The ON/STANDBY LED will now turn Green. The startup screen will display in approximately 10 seconds. The first time you use the projector, you can select your preferred language from quick menu after the startup screen displays.
4. Turn on and connect the source that you want to display on the screen (computer, notebook, video player, etc). The projector will detect the source automatically. If not, push menu button and go to "SETUP". Make sure that the "Source Lock" has been set to "Off". If you connect multiple sources at the same time, press the "SOURCE" button on the control panel or direct source keys on the remote control to switch between inputs.

If you are still unable to get the unit to turn on, try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. If it still ceases to work, contact Optoma here: http://www.optomausa.com/rma_policy.asp
