Is your HDD LED flashing? -Try pressing F8 on startup to show the boot menu option of your OS if it is Windows. If it does appear use Safe Mode first. If not successful try re-installing your OS.

This is the same problem as other posts have mentioned about the right side of the screen having a bluish-balck stripe down the side of the screen. Here's what's happening. There's a small light tunnel which has 4 very small mirrors located just behind the color wheel. The lamp shines light through the color wheel as it turns and the light goes through this small tunnel and is then relected off several mirrors before it is projected through the lens and onto the screen. Optoma apparently did not use a very good heat resistant expoxy glue when they assembled these mirrors and over time the mirrors drop down causing a shadow effect on the screen. It can be repaired without paying some repair shop a small fortune. Previous posts have a solution from another contributer whihc includes photos. I had to repair mine and it's worked fine since I used a decent expoxy to hold the mirrors.

Try buying a tri screwdriver on ebay and using this guide: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRzTgfo2PsM then take it apart and use some glue.

SOURCE: screen display is flipped
I simply turned my television off while emailing fixya and reading the user's manual. The television was turned off for about ten minutes. I think what happened was that the dvd skipped while ejecting and caused the screen to flip....who knows, I'm just happy it works properly again because I love to watch movies.
