IN72 Projector problem

Hello,

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.

Thank you!
Kaylan

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.

InFocus IN72 shuts off after 20 min.


internal error. if the lamp looks ok and it doesn't have many hours on it, it might be the power supply. the capacitors dry out and do not supply sufficient voltage. the in72s do have that problem.

Can I reset my lamp timer without replacing the lamp?


That should be fine to do. Even if the projector did alter the current based on lamp life, the worst that could happen in the lamp would burn out completely. A good projector should have a safety circuit with a fuse to prevent damage to any internal components. You should be fine.

Problem with the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector (when recieved) - No red, constant yellow tinge and constant lines.


It is because the xbox 360 is set to 60hz, change it to 50hz and it will be clear like it's meant to be. However, some 360 games are 60hz so for those games the quality is not good.

Hi Ronnel

This is a common Mainboard failure on a Projector.

The unfortunate thing is that the Mainboard will either have to be repaired or replaced.

Infocus IN72 powers up but no image, replaced the bulb but still no image...


Hi there

This is most probably a Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) problem.

Make 100% sure that this unit is out of warranty because InFocus Projectors come out standard with a 2 year warranty.
