I know Optoma used to send the firmware for those who asked... I think you need a serial port+cable to connect to Optoma...

@Renato Correa : I had the same problem happen to me a few weeks ago (pj bought in 2012). Took it to a local technician, who diagnosed it as a problem with the pj's main board/motherboard and said he couldn't repair it because he didn't have the part. Today I called Optoma in the US and they told me that if it is indeed a problem with the motherboard, it will cost me $399 ($299 for the board + $ 100 for labor) plus $25 shipping to repair it. RIP, little buddy. Now I'm shopping for a new pj.

I hope your issue is not the same as mine, though, and that you can get it repaired for less!

I do not have hope to save it either.
When power it's on, just the blinking blue light its active. The projector itself it's just dead, no fans, no light.
Here in Brazil the prices are higher than in US, so i will wait to think more about it.
I'm planning to build a new house with dedicated "cinema" room anyway, so a new projector was not totally a bad idea.

Does anyone has optoma hd33 firmware? Asked their support who replied stating there isn't any new ones and never reply after I ask for what firmware they have just pass to me. My issue is hd33 Max resolution suddenly becomes 1024x768. Could be a edid issue which I hope to resolve using firmware or driver if any...

Try resetting the projector back to factory defaults, it will restore most firmware faults. Its in the menu somewhere

To get into service menu:
Press power off, left, left, up arrow

Also, engineering screen:
Press power off, left, left, down arrow

I had a look at these screens a few years ago when someone posted the codes. There's a reload EDID option in the service menu, but it might just bring up the version number. I didn't change anything myself, just tried the codes to see if they worked. Be careful with these menus.
Here's the service manual: http://www.mediafire.com/download/58...io6q6/hd33.pdf
