Question about InFocus IN72 Multimedia Projector
About a year and a half ago, we purchased an IN72 projector. It has worked wonderfully up until this week.
In order to optimize the performance, we are using a 40 ft. HDMI cable from our digital cable box to the IN72 projector. The problem we are experiencing is this: when you turn on the system (cable box and projector), it shows a picture for approximately 3 seconds and turns black. We tried with component cables and the component cables work fine. Also, we tried hooking up the projector and PS3 with the HDMI, and it did not work with the projector, but when we hooked the PS3 to another TV using the 40 ft. HDMI cable, it worked fine. This leads me to believe that the problem lies in the projector.
I had the exact same symptom with my In72 when the bulb needed replacement. My brother's bulb exploded in the machine but when mine went out, it did exactly what you're experiencing. I'd rather have the quiet way myself... anyways, I would suggest a new bulb. You need to search around the internet. I think I found mine for $360 somewhere.

My understanding when we purchased our IN72 2 years ago is that there wasn't any additional benefit for Cable box using HDMI since the IN72 does not transmit audio so using component cables for cable was optimized enough. We have our DVD player connected via the HDMI only. Possibly the transmission from cable box through an HDMI is not compatible audio is confusing it? hard to say. Cable HD channels look awesome thru the compenent cables, the max for IN72 is 480i anyway.
We've got 35 ft cables for all 3 hdmi, compenent, and that vcr one too and it's worked great.
