It is most likely getting too hot.

Make sure all the fans are clean. Make sure the projector is not mounted too close to the cieling. This may block vents in the housing.

If you have to, you may need to mount a small fan near the projector to blow into the vents. Make sure it blows in the right direction. You don't want it working against the fans inside the projector.

Just for a test, unmount the projector and run it on a table. This should tell you if the mount on the ceiling is causing 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.

My Optoma ES522 keeps blinking all the colors of the rainbow and then going to grey. I have to turn it off four hours to even get it to start up again and then sometimes within minutes it happens again....

It seems that's the color wheel problem. You can fix this by your own. Probably the dust covered the color wheel sensor so it doesn't spin at specific speed.

And the project is now telling my lamp is at the end of it's useful life. How much will it cost to replace that?

You can switch off lamp reminder in OSD menu settings. This reminder is usually set to approx. 1200+ hours. When you exceed this limit, reminder starts to pop up. Actually it doesn't tell anything about PJ's lamp condition. So that doesn't mean that something is wrong with your lamp, maybe it lose some brightens, which is typical phenomena wheen exceeding half of lamps lifetime.

GENUINE new lamp costs around 160-180€, COMPATIBLE COPY should cost around 100€ +

Can the Optoma EP739 be ceiling mounted and projected upside down? what are the steps to do so? also, what would be the best mount for said projector?


Mine has been in place for about three years. Because the ceiling was open I was able to create a connection for a tripod head on the ceiling and then using a STRONG tripod head and some small bolts (longer than the originals) I mounted an external base and with the tripod head fitting dttached to the projector it just became a matter of running the various connector cables from the sources I use that require projection to my wall.

Optoma H56 - turns off just after start up.


It's not a short, the blub is near the end of it's life ~ the optoma is designed to detect when the blub is about to blow and shuts itself down. Turning the projector upside down or right side up usually only gives you a brief reprieve (some have reported a modest amount of extra time gained) on the blub ~ but in the end it's on it's way out and the projector will shut down again.

Vertical white line


My EP719 had the same problem. Did it once, briefly, soon after I bought it, then not again until recently, when the line came back more frequently and wider.

 

The projector was 20 days past warranty, and the company would not honor. So much for customer satisfaction and loyalty. Last piece of Optoma equipment I will ever buy!

 

Anyway, I found a web item on another model of Optoma projector with the same problem. The solution this guy tried was -- I kid you not -- rapping on the thing. With nothing to lose, I tried this on mine. Tapped lightly on the top and noticed a change in the width of the line. Hmmm ... it was sensitive to this.

 

Tapped harder. The line got narrower. Rapped pretty hard -- thump! -- and the line disappeared.

 

Since then I have been running the projector for hours, turning it on and off, letting it cool down, starting it up again. And the line seems to be gone. It may come back, of course, so this gonzo fix may not be permament. But if it works while I'm using it at a presentation, think of the amusement it will cause!

Upside down projection


Download the latest display driver for your video card. If you are using ATI vc's then download and install the Catalyst Application which will allow you to rotate the screen orientation .
