Question about Optoma RD65 65" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

No Picture I own an Optoma RD65, i just replaced the lamp because i had lost the picture and i had a solid red light indicating lamp on front of TV, i also noticed that the lens was cracked when i replaced it. Now that i have replaced i still have no picture. When i turn on TV you can hear a clicking sound almost like it wants to turn on but is not making contact with something? It is not a continous click, it will do it a couple of times then stop. When lamp blows out do i also need to replace the lamp fuse?

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.

I turn on the tv but I get no picture (black screen). A sound starts when I turn on the tv. The sound ( like a humming noise) fan perhaps which goes up and down for about a minute then the tv shuts off and...


Sounds like a problem with the color wheel. Unfortunately the color wheel is located inside the light engine. According to everything I have read, the only thing you can do is replace the light engine. You are better off replacing the TV. The light engines can run form $750 to $1400. Which is ridiculous!

Replaced bulb stil issues


In most projection televisions if a solid light comes on there isn't anything wrong the bulb there is a problem with one of several cards in the back of the television. I'd check for over heating damage on your imput cards, the Controller card that is connected to said input card, or the relay card that controls the tube output. Keep in mind you did order a part off of Ebay which is untrustworthy in and unto its self.

No picture


My too, same problem - tried replacing lamp ($150), no luck, replaced ballast ($200) no luck, replaced power supply ($150) no luck and TSC is telling me to replace the main engine ($600) - way too much for this piece of junk (cost me $4000 in 2005) - don't buy optoma products!!!
