Have you checked with the manufacturer regarding a firm ware upgrade? There was an issue with this at one point. Make sure to contact them directly. They can either mail you a cd version, direct you to where it might be on their website, otherwise email it to you.

They are able to fix that problem which my sister and my other sister/brother in law also owned this same pj had to do the same thing.

Let me know how it goes for you. Best of luck!

We have a screenplay 4805 by infocus. the right third has a dark shadow over the picture? the picture is lightly visible thru the shadow.


the light tunnel under the colorwheel has collasped or the projector has been jarred, knocking the mirror inside of the lens assy. out of alignment. Either way, it will have to be repaired by a technician.

I have a InFocus 4805. Half the picture is darker


Your light tunnel may have collapsed. This is made up of 4 tiny rectangular mirrors glued together to make a tunnel.

My bulb went out on my infocus sp-4805. I bought a new bulb, and replaced it, and it worked...for five minutes. the picture went out, and it was overheated. I took some parts off, and sprayed can air in...


The fan is probably on it's way out and cannot produce enough air flow to cool the lamp. Replace the fan with the same ratings as the original and it should work fine. The only other thing would be a problem with the power supply not supplying enough power to the fan, but, a bad fan is more likely.

Infocus 4805 blinking red light problem


My first questions is:

Is this the first lamp you have placed into your Infocus pj? If not, did you reset the hours when you did it last time? Otherwise that can also confuse the projectors internal system thinking there is NOT a new lamp in there and there for make it stop working once the clock hours are expired and over the 3000-6000 suggested hour life.

Let me know so I can help trouble shoot other possible problems.

Contact the manufacturer for a firm ware upgrade. My two brother in laws/sisters own this same pj and had the same issues you are talking about. Once they installed the update [aka: firmware upgrade]it created a solution to the problem.

Let me know how it goes. They can either mail you a CD, direct you to where on their website, otherwise email you the update to download. You have to connect your pj as well.

Let me know how that goes. I'm fairly confident that will fix it. There was a certain time frame [manufacturer dates], and serial numbers that had these issues.

Infocus 4805 dead yet again! Need Help


I'm not sure. This is a much older projecter which came out around 2003-2005. It is hard to find any new ones otherwise they will be refurbished or used.

Have you contacted the manufacturer regarding a firmware upgrade for your pj? That can fix some errors some times. My sister/brother in laws both had the same pj and that fixed this issue.

Otherwise we do not sell any products on here we only suggest and offer solutions to errors or problems.


Good luck and let us know how things work out for you!

Make sure that the lamp plug is properly plugged. 3 flashes indicate this or a faulty lamp.
