As a tip for folks with what appear to be lamp problems, be certain that you get any and all crud off the color wheel photo sensor! A detailed read of the service manual (link posted a bit above . . . ) shows that sensor errors will also cause the projector to shut down and give the lamp error! This has happened to me a couple of times, and usually a quick cleanse with canned air will do it, and sometimes an alcohol swab . . .

But alas, I think my sensor is getting a tad tired, and so I will likely need to replace it at some point. Optima in their infinite (lack of) wisdom, no longer has the PCB with the sensor . . . but the opto source/detector at the *ONLY* part on the board . . . and it's leaded, so a component replacement would not be in the slightest bit challenging *IF* I can find a compatible part, and unfortunately, mine has no visible markings, and I have no desire to pull it apart while it is still working . . .

So, might anyone know the component part number (*NOT* Optoma number - component part number . . . ) for this opto detector?

And also, does anyone know the level of/have current firmware for the HD8000/HD80LV?

Unhappy Burned Out Power Supply - HELP!

Hi all

My Optoma HD80 decided to die in a big explosion. With the help of a friend, I've opened the box. Apparently, a bug flew in (A real bug) and caused the the whole power supply to fry.

Where can I find a new power supply or a used one for this unit?

Thanks in advance, Eran
