Question about Optoma H30 Multimedia Projector

NO Light I have a h30, there is no light coming on the unit and the lamp trouble light is lit up. I replaced it with a bulb I had used before which I knew was good, and the same thing happen, is it possible that the bulb went bad sitting in storage of is there something else wrong with the unit? I don't want to spend $350 on a another bulb if my unit is porked. Is there any way to check the bulb or is it something else with the unit. Thanks

This is a tough one because the bulbs are so expensive.

Take your pick, bulb, main board or ballast board. Those are the three most probable culprits. I'm afraid you may have to send it for service (or at least an estimate).

FYI, did you know that projector bulbs are cheep, but point of sales mark them up by at least 300%?

Our shop gets them for about $80.

Bought a Hitachi 55VF820 at a garage sale and they said it wont turn on even after replacing the lamp.


I dont know the model but general trouble shooting might work. See it you can download the manual and or look at the web site for the trouble shooting section. Check the power cable for breaks, some can be hidden inside the insulation. Look especially at the ends where the wire gets flexed the most. Check if there is a fuzz and it is good. See if there is a removable panel and look inside for bad, burnt, of exploded parts. Read the bulb replacement section of the manual and remove and replace the bulb as instructed. Read turn on instructions and or break-in instructions. Give it some time to warm up.

2 notes; Do all this with out plugged into wall (for safety).
Be sure to try to not touch the bulb and clean it with a lint free clean towel. They are very sensitive to oil or dirt from handling. .

Some possible reasons include: New lamp is generic and or has a issue----excessive dust or dirt inside the unit on fans etc.

Some of these units had a feature in the menu for quick on where lamp is lit at low level all the time---this shortens the life of the lamp etc

If you did not have this issue before lamp replaced I would suspect a generic cheap bulb may have been used instead of the Toshiba cartridge / lamp combo which costs more.

With the quick on if the set has it normal time is 20 seconds for screen to light----set WILL DETECT IF LAMP IS NOT COMING UP FAST ENOUGH OR BRIGHT ENOUGH.

Generic lamps (cheap) will never be as bright or last a long as a OEM lamp unit.

Just some thoughts based on your question.

Optoma H30 -- When turning on projector the green light on power button blinks and the projector sounds like it is going through a cycle....after the cycle the lamp light comes on and nothing comes on the...


If the lamp light is orange then the lamp ballast circuit or power to it is no good.

I presume the lamp is not on at all, and it's not the hide function that is stopping the light coming out.

The bulb is not bad, the bulb replacement light is not lit and the bulb appears fine- the green light goes on then off right after you start the projector ---no heat off the back of the unit when starting...


If you have the replaced lamp with you it will be good to place it back again to see the indication to change off.
If so then the bulb must be good but if the same situation comes on then it might be the lamp.
please cross check the power supply for any errors to switch on or low power to the lamp

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?

I have a NEC mt1055 and the unit just had new bulb put in here and it has the power and standby light come on and the fan doesn't turn on here and the standby light is yellow and status is red


The NEC’s work on a reducing time basis, they count the hours that they have been operational and refer to this as the life of the bulb – 1600 hours. When the 1600 hours has been reached the projector shuts itself down into standby mode never to be restarted even after changing the bulb / filters. This is because the unit needs to be reset, which needs to be done as follows (not included in any of the bulb replacement instructions):-
  • Plug Projector in so it is in standby mode – Orange light lit, Red status light lit (not flashing)
  • Using the remote control, hold down the power off button for 30-45 seconds
  • This will reset the status button, removing the red light
  • Power up the projector and select Menu
  • Select Projector Options
  • Select Set-up – a number of tabs will appear called pages
  • Arrow across the pages (MT850 is Page 5) until an option called “RESET LAMP HOURS” is shown
  • Move onto this option and press enter on the projector itself, confirm that you want to reset the counter
  • Projector is now back to life

This works for all NEC projectors, the page number may be different though where the “RESET LAMP HOURS” option resides.

Lamp light blinks


The blinking lamp light indicates that there is a problem with the bulb. Mine did this when I had used the bulb past it's life and the bulb was burned out. Use the owner's manual instructions to remove the bulb and visually inspect it. Mine looked burned out - it was black with clouds on the glass. If this is the case with yours, replace the bulb, or replace the whole unit. (Bulbs can be costly.)

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.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 shutting off


When the lamp becomes weak in this Sony the unit will shut off intermittently. I would replace the lamp and use only an OEM Sony lamp, not an LTI or other knock off. The knock off lamps are of poor quality in my experience and opinion.
