Question about Optoma MovieTime DV10 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Abrupt shut off

This is a very new unit, used on a couple times. when I power up I get a quick flash from both the temp and lamp as well as the blue power button. the fan starts and in a moment the lamp comes on.
After about 4 mins the whole projector shuts down. The lamp, and the fan.
I'm sure it has to do with overheating and that this is an internal safety feature but what is causing this. This is a new, pristine device.
thanks

    when i switch on the power the blue light flashes and go off

  • hostagelures Oct 26, 2008

    Our Optoma, a different model, did the same thing after we had it for about 8 mos. We sent it to CA to the factory for their repair, and they returned it after about a month. We have had it back a month and a half and it has done it again. What gives with the safety switch?? We are tired of waiting for it to come back from the factory. Is there a place where we can get replacement parts?

    my dv10 will play for about 10 min and then shuts off, lamp light blinking.
    should i try a new lamp or look for a better projector?

    After playing for 5 - 8 minutes, it totally powers down and will NOT power back up for another 20 minutes. During this time, the power button which is normally backlit in blue light and flashing is totally dim as if it were unplugged. After 20 minutes, the power button starts flashing and is backlit in blue as normal. It will power up but the problem will reoccur.

    I had the same problem, I changed the kettle lead i was using and it now works perfectly. I now use a 3 amp kettle plug.

Recently, out of the blue, my HC1600 projector has been failing to project any image. It makes a clicking noise...then stops...makes another clicking noise and proceeds to flash a green and (stationary)...


Probably a power supply problem. Most likely, there is a power transistor or relay that is not properly powering the light or other equipment. Check the warranty on the device, get a new one if you can. It won't be easy to fix.

Projector won't turn on and LED Temp/Lamp flashes! has new lamp


I wish you had received a relevant answer to your question, as I'm experiencing exactly the same thing here. Not sure is this site notifies people when they get responses, but did you ever figure out what the problem was?

LCD projector shuts off durning use


u have not mentioned how long u have been using this projector. either the lamp life is low or the circuitry protecting the lamp temperature is defective or even the air intake of the fan is inadequate, a filter is fitted for air flow if this is clogged or blocked, lamp temp will rise and unit shuts down. if lamp indicator is yellow or red it is time to change the lamp. if it is red - lamp is totally out, if u turn on the unit four times without replacing lamp, the unit simply wont turn on. one other possibility is power cable and power connections. check power cable too.

Projector was turned off wrong and now wont turn back on.


if the led flashes once in 2-second intervals and you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do, the ballast is bad. if it flashes 2 times, the lamp is past 3000 hours. 4 times, fan error. 5 times, temp too high and it needs to cool.

I have a model PLC-XT11 and when I turn the power on the temp light and green ready light begin to flash. The red lamp light is on steady. I replace the lamp but no luck.


one or more of the fans may not be working right. also, the temp sensor may be shot. if the last time you used it it wasn't shut down properly, it may still be in cool-down mode.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).

Sony vpl-cx10 ,,powers up but no light


If the new lamp didn't make a difference, it is most likely your lamp ballast that needs to be replaced.

Green light flashing and then shuts down


Hi Gary

Have you resetted the lamp timer ? It must be done when a new lamp is inserted into the unit.

You can reset the lamp timer by holding the up arrow key on the Projector in until a online message appears. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.

If the problem persists , you will have to replace the Ballast wich is the lamp's power supply.

Lamp won't come on


It could possibly be that the access door to the lamp is not completely shut. If you just hear the color wheel turing and no fans is definitely could be that as it was with mine. The little plastic piece on my door that presses the switch to let the projector know the the door is shut broke off on mine and I had to glue it back on.

Projector lamp flashes and the temp red led lights.


Purchased our76C in Jan, 2007. It is our second unit now that has had the same symptoms. When the unit starts up, the Power light is steady green as normal for a few minutes, but no image is projected. After a few minutes the lights do as you described. Both times Epson support authorized a new unit to be shipped out immediately. They said they had no known issues about it and didn't indicate what was causing the problem. Apparently it is not just the lamp wither. Also, the lamps both had under 20 hours on them.
