Question about Optoma MovieTime DV10 Multimedia Projector

Purplish-blue after 5 minutes of viewing ...?

I am a soldier deployed in Iraq. We cant get any decent sized TV's shipped out here, so I had a friend send over one of these DV10's last october. Until recently it has worked fine, but now it only plays movies for 5 minutes or so before the picture goes sort of purplish-blue. The movie still plays fine but the color is just off. If you turn off and turn back on, it works fine for 5 mins then again. From what I read around on the internet, i guess my color wheel is bad ? I dropped almost $400 on a replacement lamp to have as a spare, so I really don't want to go with a whole new projector... Can someone provide some sort of lead on getting a replacement, I can have it arranged to be mailed to me. Also, do you think it may be a matter of dust (I recall we had a bad sandstorm before the projector started acting crazy) and I just need to clean it? Please advise.

    Same problem as his, image turns purple-blue after a few minutes of viewing....lamp life indicator says the bulb is ok. Had the unit since 2006.

    exactly as above. works fine at first then decends into a blue/red/purple mush. sometimes it recovers a little. sometimes the image flickers.

    turning it on and off means it works at first then problem occurs again

I solved a similar problem by putting a small battery operated fan blowing directly into the IN vent (on the right side of unit). This completely takes care of the issue.

Now, I wish I knew what the real problem was so I could fix it...

First of all, thank you so much for your service. We here in the U.S. owe you a debt of gratitude. Now on to your problem. It sounds to me like the color wheel does have to be replaced. Perhaps you can contact this person to find out where to get the part as I cannot find one for you at the moment: http://www.fixya.com/users/marrie
God Bless and get home soon.

SOURCE: optoma dv10 color wheel

Hi mrjepps

The first thing to do would obviously be to try and clean it out , if we're talking about a sand storm it would be better to blow it out with a can of air or even a compressor - gently.

Then check if using another cable ( if you have one ) would be step two.Alot of the times using a different cable does the trick.

Should the problem however persist , I would rather guess this to be a faulty Mainboard rather than a Colourwheel.

Easiest way to determine would be to place your hand on the unit while it's running - if there's a vibration then the colourwheel is at fault. If you cannot feel anything , take out the almp and chech the colourwheel - should be easy enough from the lamp's side to gently spin the colourwheel and check it for any faults.

If you cannot see anything , then I would rather opt at looking for a replacement Mainboard.

Could you please get back to me once you've checked out the above listed steps and also tell me which country you would prefer to order the part from so that I can assist in this.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

Why dose my RCA projector tv shut its self off and on then off.


It sounds like you need the RCA HDTV Convergence repair kit. On these TV's they used no lead soldier. After awhile the soldier on the Flyback would cracked causing one small fuse to blow and sometimes a capacitor to go out . It's hard to see you need a magnifying glass with a light. Look for small circles around where the terminals are soldiered. When I replaced mine I also reheated the flyback soldier and added my own soldier from radio shack. If you can take the back off your TV, remove the board the flyback is on, and use a soldier iron then you can fix it. I just seen a kit on ebay for $10.00 dollars plus $3.00 shipping.

Hello, I am a soldier in the U.S army currently deployed in Iraq. I had recently ordered an RCA RC46 Clock Radio on amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/RCA-RC46-Alarm-Clock-Display/dp/B001TNQLT6/ref=sr_1...


That would be a good guess, GI. Is this the first time using electronics from 'the World" while on assignment? Be glad it wasn't something high-end and expensive like an audio amplifier.

Besides, it's designed for 7 time zones and I bet none of them are in the Sandbox.

Use it for a paperweight.

It is locked up


Maybe i shud start by explaining why most Ipods freeze or crash. When you unplug you ipod improperly this may and usually causes the itunes software to crush and stop functioning. The softwares corrupts and cant function. So you probably cant enjoy ua music.
With the viruses in your computer its easily to infect your ipod since ipod is a mass storage device also. Some viruses have a way of freezing the itunes software.

When it comes to restoring your ipod you need a computer that is not infected with viruses. you need to format your ipod if it cant be restored directly from the internet. After the ipod is completely formated which means you have done away with the viruses/all the songs you can restore it with itunes.

But there is also a way of recovering songs from your ipod before formating or restoring since if you format you get to loose all ua files without recovering them.

But the biggest problem is when your ipod is not even recognized by your computer. But if your computer can recognize your ipod as a mass storage even if its not syncing your music, there is a possibility restore it to normacy. The only rist is loosing all your data, but with an expert you dont have to loose anything.

The tv got a heat sensor, the only way to fix tv , if you are a tv tech, is to buy a bottle of "freez it" spray small sections of tv in side. It will be clearly where the fault is if you spray correct part that give trouble. Replace that part and Tv will be Ok.
