Question about Optoma H30 Multimedia Projector
Hi! Thanks in advance for reading and any help you can provide!
I have a 2 year old Optoma H30 projector. The bulb is 8 months old, about 1000 hours on it. After the bulb was installed, it would run great for an hour, after which I would start to see color banding (looks like 8 or 16 bit color vs 32 bit). The faces in videos also start to go pink.
Now the color banding starts happening after 15 minutes, rendering the projector mostly useless for movies.
I have carefully removed (forced air) all the dust I can. I've used Qtips to swab out any residual dust. I've done this twice in the last 3 months. I've also reset the settings to factory default. I've changed the brightness and color settings. I've also checked ALL the cables (component, RBG, S-video) and all of them exhibit color banding.
Any suggestions would really be appreciated! If it works, I'll owe you two dozen cookies. :0)
Most DLP projectors have a colour wheel. It's usually hard to get at,
and you may have to actually remove everything including the optical
block from the projector to access it. This wheel turns on a motor just
like a fan, and if it gets dirty it can act up just like a fan.
They are expensive to replace, so you might want to try taking it apart and cleaning it out. Add a small amount of 3 in 1 oil to the motor if you can.
