Faulty Part Identification
The potentially faulty part is the Extension Arm that is included in the projector mount kits. This can be identified from the diagrams below. The mounting instructions that are included in the projector mount carton identify this part as either part “O” for the OWM1000, or as part “V” for the OWM855W.
There are 2 versions of the Extension Arms: metal and plastic. There are no issues with the metal version. If you have received a plastic version you should check the purchase date carefully. Not all plastic versions are potentially faulty. If you have received plastic versions and received the kits between July 29 – September 9th please contact Optoma to arrange express delivery of replacement parts.
If you are using the projector mount kit in accordance with the included mounting instructions and are using the projector mount kit to mount an Optoma projector the Extension Arms should not have been used. These arms are only required if the mount kit is used with a projector that is not an Optoma model. See the mounting instructions for details.
