You need to check the air filter (unless it is a DLP unit) tio make sure it isn't clogged. Most projectors will shut down to avoid overheating and damaging the circuitry. At times this may also be an indicator that your lamp has reach its end-of-of life stage, and given the age and model of your projector, you may weigh the cost of purchasing a new one.

SOURCE: dvd10 optoma projector makes a loud noise

Hi, I'm not sure if it's the same problem I had..
I had it on picture mute, for maybe 15 mins, which may not have been a good idea. While it was muted, it made a sparking sound, and then a very loud grinding noise. When turned off, the lound noise stops, and the fan continues as usual for about a minute. As soon as it's turned back on, the grinding noise is back. But the logo seemed to display ok.

I took it in for repairs, and they said they needed to replace the color wheel to fix the problem.

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.

I have had this problem, it was the lamp module that was faulty.

If you have an old lamp, try that first to prove that is the current lamp that is the problem. I wouldn't want you to purchase a new one to find it isn't the lamp after all.

Good luck

There are three temp sensor inside the projector and now your projector need full service but if the air filter becomes clogged with dust, the internal temperature of the projector will rise, the TEMP indicator will illuminate and the projector's power will turn off (the TEMP indicator will flash after the power is turned off) The air filter should be cleaned every 100 hours of use.
If you clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner to clean off any accumulated dust. then your projector working normally

No light and some fan noise


Take the top off and verify that all of the fans are on, there are 2 behind the power supply and one behind the engine. If the unit lights up when the top is off, then the wires above the dual fan assy may be putting pressure on the fan frame while the top is on causing one to rub or not turn at all. If this is the case, unplug the power and try to route the cables thru the notch in the top of the fan assy a little better. If any fan isn't working, the unit will not light. This could be due to a main board problem or a bad fan itself. If the colorwheel is stuck, the unit will light and then shut off. Also, depending on the age of the projector, if there isn't a green wire going from the front of the main board to the bottom of the power supply ballast, the power supply will need to be replaced or upgraded by a technician.

No projection


This sounds like the lamp has not fired. Try a new lamp. If that fails to resolve hte problem, the ballast is the next assembly to be replaced.
