    I know it has been discussed multiple times here, but I still cannot make up my mind. Currently have Optoma HD70, but want a projector with a full 1080P and also something brighter. I have a dedicated room, the projector is ceiling mounted and projector placement is not a problem for me, have...

    Hi guys. So my Optoma HD70 has broken down on me once again. Previously I have had issues with white vertical lines in the picture, and this I have been able to solve by warming the PCB and (in)effectively reflow soldered any minor components. However, after a year with no issues I suddenly...

    It's been forever since I have posted anything, but I think this deserves to be posted. My Optoma HD70 is a real trooper. What I should be saying is...I kicked the living crap out of that thing and it has served me well! Very well! I installed my projector December 2006. I have a stay at...

     I have had the Optoma HD70 for several years now but recently moved into a house whose basement walls are all white, so now, even with all the lights off. the picture seems slightly washed out to me. I am wondering if the higher contrast and lumen output of the w770st would help to overcome...

    Hey Gang, Been a while since I've posted. Always good to come back here for well informed advice. At any rate, as you've probably been able to tell from the post title, I'd like to upgrade to a new 1080p projector. I currently have a Optoma HD70 (720p) which actually works quite well...

    I bought my Optoma HD70 back in November of 2006. It's ceiling mounted and projects onto a 92" painted screen. I had to finally clean it about a year ago, but other than that it has been very reliable and dependable. It gets weekly use and is still on the original bulb! So, how about it...

    I found a phone number for TSC, who apparently sells parts for Optoma now, but they are now officially out of stock of color wheels forever for the Optoma HD70 projector. Before I roll the device with some vendor in China thru ebay, anyone have a known good source for this part? thanks Brett

    Hi, I was wanting to buy the BENQ mw519 for projecting some hd videos on travel of 1 hr duration to small groups of about 50 people. I was using an optoma HD70 so if it will even slightly surpass that in quality i will be more than happy. Any suggestions will be very helpful. Im not...

    Turned on my HD70 the other day and after an hour or so the fan started to sound like a lawnmower. The picture was fine so I do not think it was a color wheel. Can this be fixed for a reasonable or is it time to get a new projector? Where would I get it fixed in the DC area? Thanks!

    I have or should I say had a HD70. It was doing the color wheel changing issue. So the wife said try blowing it out. Well with out thinking I did and the pj was on. I blew it out all around it then on the side with the lens I received a blow of fire like something blew on the inside. Any advice...

    Well we have had our Optoma HD70 finally die. I killed it on accident. But the rainbow effect had come back causing me to react without thinking. I have already had to replace the bulb once and luckily that was under warranty. Then this happened so now we are PJ looking. The wife wants a tv. I...

    Hello Guys, Im reposting here since my first post about this just didnt appear in the forum. Im about to buy a BENQ MW-519 DLP projector right away. Can someone offer their experiences with this PJ. I have an Optoma HD70 with which im extremely satisfied in terms of 1.Resolution...

    Disassembled and thoroughly cleaned the thing with den alcohol and canned air. Working great but was wondering -- Why not just leave that big gray paper housing OFF the color wheel and just open it up every few months and spray with air? Seems the projector is running a lot cooler that...

    Hey guys and gals. I've been running a Optoma HD33 in my house for about a year and besides a regular dusting and lens cleaning, I haven't done much as far as deep or internal cleaning. She's running fine, not issues to report, and I run a pretty clean ship, no smoking, kids, etc ... but I do...

    I am currently using the HD70 right now and have been for the last year or so. I was able to just pick up both the Optoma HD33 and the Sharp XV-Z17000 at Best Buy with an open box price another 15% off. I didn't want to leave one behind so I grabbed both to ether sell one online or return it...

    I have had my Optoma HD70 for probably 5 years now and while I've had INFINITE problems with overheating and emergency shutdowns, I thought i would just share with everyone that I'm still on my original bulb and at 3977 hours, I'm about to pass the point of double the expected life on this...

    Hi, I have a problem with my Optoma HD70. Connect the power cord, the 2 LED, lamp and temperature (red and orange) will flash for 2 seconds (normal) and stay lit fixed (no normal). The green LED flashes as indicating ready (with the 2 LED lit error fixed). The projector does not respond to...

    Hello all, I am posting here for advice. I have been having trouble with my Optoma HD70 for quite some time now. The unit will work fine for a seemingly random period of time (sometimes only 10 minutes, sometimes an hour or more), and then it will crap out. When I say crap out, the picture...

    I have an older projector (Optoma HD70) and my current bulb has 7200+ hours on it. Needless to say, its getting difficult to watch and needs replacing badly. As many of you know, replacement bulbs aren't cheap so in searching for a less expensive solution, I stumbled across apexlamps.com...
