No luck yet. I have someone from another forum helping. Thus far we've only devised a way of testing the opto's at stock operation. Do you have a similar model? If you'd like to follow the progress or contribute.... PLS Help. DLP Bypass Lamp - Osram Lamp Control Board - 5-pin UART Communication

Default Optoma HD65

Hey guys,

I have an Optoma HD65 that really doesn't want to turn on! It uses SCI to monitor Lamp status and I just wondered if anyone could figure how to bypass it so I can use any lamp I like? The grounding method doesn't work. I've attached pics and labelled them as best as I can, couldn't find a service manual anywhere to help though :/ .

Thanks in advance


If any more pics are needed, just let me know and I'll upload them straight away!

Talking Dell 3200mp

Hi, new to this forum.

Hope someone can help ...

My Dell 3200mp only lights up like 5- 10 seconds before it shuts down.
Lamp light comes on.

i will try to bypass the ballast and see.If i can manage to to that.
Wonder if any in here have done that with this model.Or have experience with dell pj`s... etc

Some say its the lamp, and other the ballast, or lamp driver.
Hard to tell though.
The few seconds its on, its very bright and clear picture. And even the lamp are over its life span, it still would be possible to use the pj.
