There is a switch on the side where you insert the lamp, it's black with a metal contact. If, when the lamp cover is replaced, it does not "activate" this switch for some reason (i.e. it is loose or perhaps bent) then the projector will not power at all.

Just remove the lamp and take a look at the switch for possible damage incurred from when you replaced the lamp.

Why would my projector refuse to start with a seemingly intact light bulb?


If you only have 300 hours on it it should still be under warranty. Before doing something to void that I would check with Optoma techs.

if the lamp, lamp driver,power supply,Scaler Board and Formatter Board were good.

I have a Optoma HD80 and the bulb has about 450 hours on it. I cleaned the projector, unpluged it for several mins and still turns off after starting. If the bulb has only 450 hours on it, why should I...


hi,
You have to check the bulb first. Its not the matter of how many hours you have used it. just check the lamp. may be it burned out. Its only a bulb it can burnout at any time. also check the lamp colling fan is working or not. if it is not working the same problem can occur.
ok

My Optoma ES522 keeps blinking all the colors of the rainbow and then going to grey. I have to turn it off four hours to even get it to start up again and then sometimes within minutes it happens again....

It seems that's the color wheel problem. You can fix this by your own. Probably the dust covered the color wheel sensor so it doesn't spin at specific speed.

And the project is now telling my lamp is at the end of it's useful life. How much will it cost to replace that?

You can switch off lamp reminder in OSD menu settings. This reminder is usually set to approx. 1200+ hours. When you exceed this limit, reminder starts to pop up. Actually it doesn't tell anything about PJ's lamp condition. So that doesn't mean that something is wrong with your lamp, maybe it lose some brightens, which is typical phenomena wheen exceeding half of lamps lifetime.

GENUINE new lamp costs around 160-180€, COMPATIBLE COPY should cost around 100€ +

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

Optoma ep716 was making a clicking sound and now doesn't turn on... Any ideas?


Clicking is probably the lamp trying to start - it uses an electric arc to get going. Kind of like gas stoves using spark to ignite the gas. Odds are that the lamp is dead. If there are any indicator lights, and you describe them, we may be able to confirm (or disprove). 1ak+f4pj7cbm32cuniyi2gaaaaaelftksuqmcc

The lamp cover has a disconnect that wont allow the unit to power on while the cover is off.

Try taking the lamp cover off and bending the little piece of metal you find underneith.

It worked for me.

Optoma EP716 turns on but no picture displays


Don't ever just unplug the power cord while it is on. The bulb needs to cool down with the fan still on.
Did you ever connect a source?

Optoma RD50 Lamp Issues


replace the fuse thats on the little board beside the new lamp. that will reset the buld to new. I understand that the fuse will blow right after a new lamp is installed. It will reset the counter to 0.
Hope this helps
