Optima H30 warning

Getting a warning that the bulb has reached the end of its life and should replace soon. Going to order a new bulb just in case but picture is still good. Is there anyway to get the message to quit coming up on the screen every time I turn on the projector?

    I too am over my 4000 hours and every time you turn the unit on you have to press the same sequence every time.... no fun but after 4000+ hrs who cares! this baby is still perfect and I love it... replacement bulb is standing by. resetting the counter is covered in the manual.

OK, found the solution on the net, you have to use the buttons on the projector instead of the remote to access the menu item.

The only way is to reset the bulb hours counter. There are instructions on how to do this with the replacement bulb. Please note that this procedure will reset the counter to zero(0). You should kee track of the actual hours on the bulb so you don't get surprized during a presentation.

My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)


The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

Replaced bulb but still getting "lamp will fail soon replace" warning


When you replace the lamp, you need to reset the lamp counter as well. The procedure for this should be in the owner's manual. This counter is a guide only. Lamps have an expected lifetime and the message indicates that the lamp is nearing that lifetime. Once reset, the counter will again trigger the message once this new lamp reaches that usage time.

My Optoma HD72 projector operates for about 1 minute and then shuts off. I kept my old bulb around "just in case", I've replaced the bulb with the old one and have the same problem.


The problem is not over-heating. The Optoma HD72 has a known problem that Optoma won't advertise. The lamp driver is faulty. They simply have to replace the lamp driver. I purchased a spare lamp with my original purchase. I had the exact same experience as you at around 1200 hours on the lamp in ECO mode. I used the spare lamp. Same thing happened at about 1200 hours. I had a friend at Optoma. he confided to me the problem. I sent it in and they replaced the lamp driver at no charge. I got another 800 hours out of the first lamp and am now using my second lamp and have about 600 hours on it. The pic quality is so good with this projector (used Digital Video Essentials to calibrate) that I'll just order a bare lamp or two and use the existing lamp housings when I need a new bulb.

I have an optima EP 739 projector and I just replaced a bulb in it but it does not come on just green light whats up Any input would be appreciated


if the fans come on and the lamp doesn't, it's the ballast or the colorwheel. if no fans either, it's the power supply. also, did you reset the lamp timer?

Infocus SP 4805


How old is it ? Approx how many hrs have you used it? Was it set at Lo speed / low power or hi speed / max power on bulb and fan? Do you smoke in the same room? Is the unit ceiling mounted ( more concentrated hot air ). Have you had a power failure while the unit was on? The bulbs used in many projectors , although claiming 3000 or more Hrs ,are subject to early failure. If the unit or bulb is new ( less than 1 yr. old, contact the service manager at that co. and complain about short life; IThat works !

Benq pb7220, can't find composite video source


Hi there

You'll see at the back of this projector where the composite input is there is two holes with screws. Unscrew it and remove the part.

It looks like a DVI connctor. Check if all the pins is in order. If you can't see anything wrong - buy just that part and replace it.

It is VERY cheap to replace.

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).

Infocus 540 lamp didnt strike keep trying


if mains is ok and fan running ok, could be a bulb service issue, all lcd projectors have an internal lamp life counter which counts down and once the lamp has reached the end of its life it will not fire up and a new bulb will be required.

No power


I had to replace the internal fuse after my light bulb burst. You can remove the case by removing the screws on the sides and the carefully slide it off. The fuse is under a plastic cover by the power plug location. I'm not sure if this will fix your problem totally though. I just installed my replacement bulb and I get the solid orange light for 30 seconds and it goes into standby mode again.
