Hello all! New here and I did search the forum for anything remotely close to this issue.

I have an Optoma HD70 and the "end of useful life" warning popped up last week. I purchased the correct replacement bulb, BL-FP200C. I followed the directions in the manual correctly(projector is ceiling mounted) to dismount, open and replace the bulb. When I went to remount the projector, I plugged it in as the last step(RBG and HDMI are the inputs I use) and the power light did not illuminate as I thought it would. Nothing. I tried everything, even reinstalling the replaced bulb(in case there was a wiring or other problem with the new bulb). Nothing. I switched to a different power outlet. Nothing.

Could there be a problem with the cord? Is it a standard cord?

Any suggestions are totally appreciated!!

Thanks a ton. Lewiedude.

In most projectors there is a micro switch that lamp cover pushes on when closed. If this switch is not making contact the projector will not power up.

Look at the lamp door, there is a tab that depresses the switch.

My lamp exploded last month and I ordered a new one. Today I replaced it and the projector won't turn on. I tried replacing it again, switched the power cable and played with the switch on the top of the lamp, still nothing. Is there anything else that I can do?
