Optoma RD65 Service manual

Did you ever find the service manual for your RD65. I am also looking for a service manual, Optoma will not provide the manual. This TV is out of production due to all the problems with it, you would think they would help out those of us that had faith in their product and spent our hard earned money. Optoma's Tech support and customer service is terrible. If you have the service manual I would be willing to pay for a copy. Email me at [email protected]

I have a optoma rd65 when on it makes a loud humming noise

You most likely have a failing color wheel. This is a known problem in the RD65. If you search on EBay for an RD50 color wheel it is the same one that goes in the RD65. They are roughly $150 depending on who you purchase from. They can be user replaced if you are handy with tools. The bearings wear out and this causes the humming you are hearing.

Just changed the bulb, TV is about 7 years old.

I think if possible a little more information:master power if it has it will be on back of set and some models have safety switch so if back is off set will not power up.Do any of the indicator lights (think this model has two) come on or is it total dead set?No power whatsoever suggests no lights on front of set, let me know as much as you can,I am in California and will be online for a while.Steve, SD TECH

Optoma rd65tv will not turn

Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck....

When the projector is turned on it flashes a fan

These televisions need alot of air flow to keep cool. Sometimes dust can buildup on the fan that is already running lots, The weight of the dust besides the heat can wear these out. You can check the wiring to the fan with an ohmmeter or multi-tester to see if it is getting 12 volts any at all. If so, then fan is probably bad.. If not, then you may have a more serious problem

Same Shading Problem approx 4-5" on the R side

Hello there, I am so sorry to hear about your woes with this TV. I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with this exact model TV more times then I care to remember and every time it has literally been for this exact same issue. A large shadow on the right hand side of the unit. They actually discontinued this TV shortly after releasing it because they had so many issues with it, but Optoma will definitely not admit to that. I am so sorry to inform you that there really is no fix for the TV short of fixing the mirror assembly inside the TV. The good news is that you can fix it yourself if you are pretty handy, it can be fixed for less than $30 - 40. You will need to open up the TV and find the mirror assembly inside. Here is some more information on it regarding pictures, this link should take you right to the post that shows you everything

It's worth a try, definitely better than spending the $1000 to fix it. Also, if anything I know the fellow who posted the comment on there is very nice and if you send him a message through that message board he can personally help you fix the exact issue as he's done it himself as well.

No Picture

its probably the ballast that is bad, call Optoma and you can buy a ballast for it, but you will probably want to have a pro do it, changing the ballast is a lot more involved than just changing the bulb, the ballast is what powers the bulb and it does go out on occasion.
