hello all
My rd50 has started showing these lines on screen when i put tv on
they last for around 10 - 15 minutes every startup then all goes back to normal
all connections seem ok
this happens on every channel
it did this once about 4 months ago now its every time i turn it on
any ideas whats causing this?
maybe happened on another dlp?

do u know if i can email optoma the pics to be diagnosed
its still under warranty ,any thoughts before i phione about this?

Techincally I would say it was fudge*D, and to call Optoma to ask for a technician to visit,, but that's just my technospeak. Perhaps someone else has a more incisive comment?

Is it true of all sources, or just one?

At a guess it might be a dry solder joint somewhere which means that when the set warms up the problem disappears.

At 10 months, I suspect you'll be "stuck" with a repair under warranty. Consumer law does give you certain additional rights, which extend beyond warranty terms, but at this age, the onus would be on you to prove the TV was faulty on delivery (which I suspect you'd find hard to do). Call your supplier - not the manufacturer - and request service under warranty.

My RD50 is doing the same. The green light blinks then the red ones come on. No picture. Thinking it is the bulb but my set is also new. Please let me know what you find out. Many thanks

If the fan stops when the red light comes on, it sounds like it's just turning itself off. Does it look the same as the shut-down cycle?

are you getting the lines on screen as i did?
when repair man fixed mine ,on startup the set did the flashing red green light thing then wouldnt come on,it was only a loose cable connection,as he had the set stripped to pieces
if your getting the lines phone optoma right away cause its then knackered completley.
