Optoma HD65 Won't Power on; ALL 3 LEDs Are Flashing Red Not Just Lamp; also Power & Temp, Quicker than the Manuals' Once/Sec. Interval. Help!

Hi, I've got an issue with an oldie-but-goodie Optoma HD65 NOT the UHD-65. About 45 minutes after powering it down, I powered it back up after installing a powered & powered up Monoprice HDMI splitter and new HDMI cable between my AVR Denon AVR-2310CI, powered down and the powered-down Optoma. Nothing happened. ALL THREE LEDs Power, Lamp, Temp are flashing red, and more quickly than the Service and Owners' manuals.indicate for a lamp issue 1-sec. interval. The lamp was replaced early last fall, about ~800 hrs. ago...that was an easy diagnosis, as I heard the prior lamp explode; this one didn't, and SEEMS to look O.K., out of its housing and cartridge. Dunno. The current lamp was claimed to be OEM by an Ebay seller he sold both OEM and compatable lamps. That's all I know...Any ideas, please?

you need to reset the lamp timer, usually done by holding some buttons while turning on

SOURCE: Optoma hd65 wont power on

The problem sounds like the lamp ballast is bad--it's a circuit that initially starts the lamp and then keeps it burning--the lamps are like a welder's arc inside of a glass globe. When you push the power button, the ballast uses a spark of electricity (sort of like a spark plug) to get the initial arc going and then switches to low voltage, but HIGH amps to keep it going.---Rick

I have the same problem, however, my lamp wasn't replaced. Projector working great, just started today. Filter cleaned, reset lamp time, neither helped. Any luck yet?

SOURCE: I've just replaced the lamp

I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.

Optoma hd65 has a red light. Only had it for 5 months. How do you fix?


The red indicator light usually comes on when something needs attention. Most often it has to do with the lamp timer or the filter timer. The projector keeps track of how long it's been since you've changed the bulb or cleaned the filter(s). You can reset these timers in the menu. Be sure to clean the filter before you reset the timer

Try putting the bulb into normal (rather than eco) setting.
Check the bulb is seated correctly.
If this does not help you may have to contact your bulb supplier to see if they can swap bulb for you.

The problem with my projector is it keeps flashing green and red


hi,

your statement is not very specific but if the power led is flashing green and the lamp led is flashing red that indicates a fan failure.

contact optoma support here and enquire if you can have a warranty repair, or how much it may cost to have the fault fixed.

My HD 65 keeps flashing green.. I turned the high altitude on and it stopped.. But it's now starting again.. There is only 480 hrs used. What to do??????


From what I've read, flashing colors could mean dust on the color wheel. Try removing the lamp and blowing air on the color wheel. Also if using the red,blue, green cables check to make sure the red is in tight.

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

Steady red status light on NEC VT45 projector. Would not POWER ON. LAMP was replaced with a new one


the power supply on that model seem to go bad after a while. the caps aren't properly reted it's power needs. they dry up. if you are good at soldering, replace c1 on the board (big cap) with a cap that has a slightly higher voltage rating. or replace the whole power supply. you might not be able to get one from nec, but you can try www.projectordoctor.com

My Optoma HD65 Projector stops starts working and


Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.
