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.

Won't turn on


How long has it been running, projectors ALWAYS turn off when the overheat remove anything covering the cooling vents and it may have dust inside which will compound the problem.
Solution wait for 5-10 minutes.

Sony VPL-CX6 Projector turns itself off. No image projected.


does the "lamp/cover"-led light up? i had the same thing happening, the lamp either broke or is about to break and the projektor won't turn it on again to protect itself. if its very urgent, open the projector pull the lamp out and put it in again, it might work for 1 or 2 more times, but it is very likely to explode (usually not breaking the projector but for sure not good for it).

good luck!

Projector shuts off after about 45 minutes


Just a long shot, but...

I have an epson 9000i that did the same thing. Turns out that unit has a small fan (I think 60mm) right next to the power supply to keep it cool, in addition to the large fan that exhausts past the lamp. The fan runs non-stop as long as the unit is powered-up for two reasons I can think of - keep the power supply a little cooler, and the lamp a little warmer so there's not such a temp difference when it powers-up. Long story short, that fan had died. I replaced it with an aftermarket 60mm fan and it's been working fine ever since. Hope this helps.

Hi there

Firstly check when the Projector is switched on , if all the fans are running.

If they are , then it can only be one of two things - either the Powersupply or the Ballast that has gone faulty.

Is there any indicator lights on the unit that flickers , and also what colour ?

Take out the lamp and check for any irreugularities on it like discolouration ( vein like looking marks in either white or black ) or if there is any bubbles on the shaft of the lamp. In which case the lamp will be at fault and will need replacement !
