Question about Optoma HD70 DLP Projector

Open Question

Bulb warning light is on (orange light is on). The projector works for 15 minutes or so, but then the picture starts to change colors and then the projector shuts down. I am not sure the bulb is the issue as I just replaced it with a new one and the old one did this same thing. Any ideas what my issue is and how to fix it? Thanks.

I HAVE A HD72 DOING THE SAME THING, I PUT IT IN HIGH ALTITUDE MODE(WHICH MAKES THE FAN RUN FASTER) AND IT STOPED THE PROBLEM. I READ THAT DUST COLLECTS ON THE FAN AND IT DOESN'T CIRCULATE THE AIR, HEATING UP SOME OF THE CIRCUITS MAKING THEM NOT WORK CORRECTLY. I AM GOING TO CLEAN THE FAN AND I THINK IT WILL FIX THE PROBLEM

Hi, My name is Doug Stanko.
I had the same issue and fixed the problem.
All you have to do is take a few screws out..... and blow out the inside VERY well with pressurized air. I have a compressor... and I set the regulator to 50 psi. But the KEY IS TO have the covers off so you can get between the circuit cards and blow them out. They were incredibly dusty. Even after I blew through the side vents.
I agree with all of you that say it is overheating. You are right. There was so much dust on the fan blades them selves... I'm suprised they were still spinning at all.
And like most of you... first I bought the $300 dollar bulb... put it in and 10 minutes later it was doing the same thing flashing through the colors. So trust me.
There are 4 screws on the back. Take these out.
There are 2 small nuts on the back around the VGA input. Take these out.
There are about 5 screws on the underside (think one was on the bulb changeout portion). These have long copper colored bars that go all the way from top to bottom.
All these have to be removed. Then you can take it apart. AND I PROMISE YOU WILL SEE TONS OF DUST ALL OVER.
Make sure you blow out the parts between the circiut boards AND the fan unit.
Put it back together... and remember to make sure that little latch on the bulb change cover makes the click sound ( it is a switch that must close or the unit will not power back up )..... and it will work great again.
No need for a huge fan next to it. Although I will admit that is an excellent idea.
I did this 3 weeks ago and have been watching it with no issues.
If you do not feel comfortable taking the screws out yourself..... I would take it to your local TV repair store and just ask them to take the covers off and blow out all the dust... and give it back to you. No troubleshooting... no repairs... no replacements... just blow it out.
I was an electronic technician in the US Navy for 10 years... Now I work at a nuclear power plant in Illinois. BUT I PROMISE with a good phillips head screw driver and a small crescent wrench you can do this yourself.
Good luck and you are welcome. I know how frustrating this issue is. But this is the fix.
Doug

clean out the projector with canned air. dust keeps in the heat the projector is trying to expell. once it's blown out, check the fans to make sure they are spinning.

This is a very common problem with these projectors. The fans lock up and the units are out of warrenty. The fan you replace it with must be the exact same as the old one, even though it is the same as a 5$ computer fan. The processor will detect the non-dell fan and shutdown in the same way.I Havent been able to find any replacement fans that will work. I may be interested in buying your broken projector from you if you give up.

It sounds like you bulb is ready to die. First clue is picture quality. That happen to me and a new bulb remedy the problem. Bulbs are expensive though.

Infocus LP530 will turn on and work great for 15 minutes then shuts down and the green light turns orange and blinks. The Bulb only has 283 hours on it.


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work get a small fan and place it near the projector ro provide extra cooling. The projector is running border line on high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

What does it mean when that blinking green light turns to orange one in lp 350?


Hi
This would be "Standby"
When you press standby, the display and audio turn off and a blank screen is displayed for 15 minutes.
You can change the amount of time the projector stays in standby mode; see “Standby Time” on page 27 for details.
The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.
• If you press standby again within 15 minutes, the projector returns to normal operations immediately. The LED changes from orange to green.
• If you press standby again after 15 minutes, there is about a 60 second delay before the lamp turns back on. The LED flashes green while the lamp is re-lighting.
• If you don’t press standby again, the lamp turns off after 15 minutes. The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.

I hope these help

I put a fan on my projector and after about 40 min. the picture returned to the appropriate color. I am still investigation on how to get and replace the fan.

PROJECTOR POWERS DOWN


This would appear to be a bulb that has reached end of life -- or the projector thinks that it is because of hours. Usually most bulbs are 1000 or 2000 hours. Depending on your projector there are different ways of checking bulb life hours -- if you Google your projector model number and "bulb life" you will usually get a post on how to check these hours. Also, if it is a new bulb and you haven't reset the hours counter, it may need to be reset (however you also don't want to wait too long before changing a bulb that has reached EOL since they can and do explode sometimes taking out the projector with it).
