Attention Optoma Projector Owners!
If you already own an HD65, HD700x or GT7000 DLP projector... Prepare yourself for life-size 3D games, movies and sport.

Click the "Dowload 3D Upgrade" button above to get started...
|Step 1 - How to Install the Upgrade Software|
The installation must be done using a PC with USB port running Microsoft Windows XP or Vista (Windows 7 is not supported). Please note that the appearance of the installation may vary slightly depending on your version of windows. You will also need a standard “USB A-B” cable to connect your projector to your PC.
Please be aware that the download above includes two versions of the installer; a 32-bit and a 64-bit version. You must use the correct installation for your version of Windows. To find out whether you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of windows please see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article for more information.
For screenshots of the installation/upgrade process, please click here.
Before running the upgrade program, you must install the USB driver.
- Open “HD65 3D Upgrade.zip” from your chosen download folder and copy the “3D Upgrade” folder to your desktop.
- Open the “3D Upgrade” folder and select 32-bit or 64-bit (see link above regarding Windows versions)
- Double click “Setup.exe” If windows asks if you want to allow the program to make changes to your computer, click “Yes”
- Click “Next”, “Next” and “Next” – the default values are suitable for most setups.
- Click “Close” to exit the software installation.
(To uninstall the upgrade software run “setup.exe” again and select “Remove”)
- Click on “Start”, (All programs) “Flasher 1.1” and select “install_driver.exe”. If windows asks if you want to allow the program to make changes to your computer, click “Yes”
- A DOS box will appear while the driver installs – it will close automatically.
- If a dialogue box appears saying that the driver is not signed by Microsoft, click “Continue”
|Step 2 - How to Upgrade Your Projector|
Please ensure you have first installed the upgrade software as detailed in the previous section before attempting the upgrade.
- Hold down the “Menu” button on your projector then plug in the power cord.
- Once the lamp and temp LED light up, release the “Menu” button.
Plug in USB (A-B) cable into the projector’s “Service” port and to the USB port of your PC.
If a balloon appears near the system tray saying “installing device driver software” wait until it says “your device is now installed and ready to use” before continuing.
*Hint - Due to the varied implementation of USB on different PCs the USB device driver may not be found automatically. If your device driver is not found, please repeat items 6-8 in the previous section, ("How to install the upgrade software") while ensuring the USB cable is still connected and the lamp and temp LED are still lit.
- Click "Start" (All programs), "Flasher 1.1 - 32bit" and select "Flasher.exe" to launch the Upgrade software.
- The “USB connection status” should say “Connected” (If it says “Disconnected” exit the software and go back to step 1 above to check the connectivity. If this does not work, try re-installing the software and USB driver)
- Click the “Browse” button to search for the Firmware image file.
- Choose the image file called “HD65_HD700X_GT7000 3D FW vXXX(YYYY-DD-MM).img” from the “3D Upgrade” folder (On your desktop) and click “Open”
Click the “Download” button, then select “Yes” to start the upgrade – It will remove the old firmware, then upload the new firmware. The whole process will take a few minutes to complete.
NB: DO NOT UNPLUG THE USB OR POWER CABLE DURING THE UPGRADE - OPTOMA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGED CAUSED BY DOING SO.
- When the upgrade is complete, a dialogue box will appear to confirm the upgrade was successful. Click “OK” then unplug the USB and Power cables.
- Your projector is now 3D-XL ready for fully immersive, huge-screen 3D at home! During 3D playback press “re-sync” on your projector remote control / keypad to Optimise your 3D viewing experience.

Thank you for the upgrade, it was a superb addition to the HD65 projector for my 3D games, movies etc.
I know it was a long time in the making, but after smoothing out the few glitches first time round, in my opinion you got it just right at last.
