Problem with Optoma H31 display - Confused soul

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
I've got a Optoma H31 that has worked great for a long while. The original lamp it came with has been running for 1700 hours, which is great. Just yesterday, I was playing Dragon Age 2 then suddenly the colors went weird. I thought it could be the game but then the Xbox menu was the same. I thought that the original lamp had finally died. So I replaced it. Same output. I tried running off composite - same problem. Lastly, I hooked up DVI to a computer and still the same.

I've cleaned the projector, tried Optoma support, tried Google - but can't seem to find a resolution. I've attached the screenshot of what the output looks like.

Would really appreciate the help.

Is your computer reverting to 256 colour mode?

Thanks for the prompt reply.

No, it doesn't revert back. After your post I went back to fiddle around with projector settings, I had reset them to defaults earlier. I came across Brite Mode and instantly picture looks back to normal, mostly.

I then researched what it was and it says that it reduces lamp life by a 1000 hours. Just wondering cuz I never had this issue before, do you think something went faulty with the projector? Or did I never notice whether brite mode was ever on...

Came across this earlier thread too on brite mode
