I bought my projector new, 8 years ago. It is only used for home viewing occasionally (For general programmes the normal TV is used).
When switched ON it comes on showing a good Picture for about 40 seconds then just shuts down. On switching it on again the same thing happens, and goes OFF again.The small window at the back displays (Error F8).
My supplier (Not a Runco Specialist) tell me that it needs to go to GIBRALTAR for repairs (I live in the UK) He also tells me that as it cant be upgraded to receive Hi Def Pictures (something I would have liked) because of its age. Therefore its not worth repairing.
It's dissapointing that Runco dont seem to have a sympathetic After Sales Service.I paid £20,000+ for something that technically is obsolete after 8 years of selective use

It sounds like the projector itself has a fault. Sadly it's often uneconomic to repair budget projectors which are out of warranty when the cost of repair is compared to that of replacement. You should speak to Optoma support and see who their local agent is, and then ask for a quote.
sounds like the colorwheel. the bearings are starting to go on it due to excessive dust and heat. since it's a motor, it's bound to wear out eventually. it will need to be replaced. you could buy the part and do it yourself or send it in for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good and they're an infocus service center. www.avsolutionsny.com.
the lamps should be good for 2000 hours. if you use it that much per year, three lamps is normal. but it's best to keep the projector clean and free of dust to extend the life of the lamps. dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. heat will kill the lamp and possibly overheat other circuits and components. use canned air to blow it out.
if the lamp blew during use, the projector was not able to complete the shut down mode. it will turn on by itself until it does. replace the lamp, let it warm up, and press power to initiate the shut down. after it powers down, reset the lamp timer and turn it on. all should be well.
The loud buzzing noise you heard was the colourwheel that gave in.
Now what happens is , the machine will turn on and go through the whole cycle and as soon as the colourwheel is supposed to start doing it's stuff the Projector will switch off because there is no response from the coulourwheel itself.
You will have to replace the colourwheel unfortunately as it cannot be fixed.
Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.
I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.
