Question about InFocus LP 530 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Upper left corner prismatic simicircle when screen is black

I have a Infocus LP530 with 280 hours on it (total) just recently I noticed a prismatic multicolored "c" in the upper left corner of the screen (Celing mount) as well the zoom or screen size adjustment ring will not turn but the focus ring works fine it seems as if something has jammed in the lens mechanism. Is this something worth repairing or should I just save the bulb and buy another unit on EBay.
Thank you in advance for any help,
David Lott

Sounds as if you have some sort of foreign body within the unit possibly an insect I know this sounds strange but I have removed Mice from sets before now ?. How they get in is a mystery but they do and they can bung up the works .
A less helpful reason is that heat has caused some plastic to crack and drop into the lens mechanism , I have had that happen a few times usually from off the fan blades above the lamp now inverted on celling mounts puts the fan under the heat . An inspection by a qualified engineer may be the first step then decide what to do when you are told the cause ?. .. Regards Vortash

Rather than hitting the factory reset, you need to reset the lamp hours. With the power on, press and hold the brightness up and brightness down keys on the projector keypad at the same time for 10 full seconds. Verify the hours were reset by going to "About" in the main menu.

Dark in middle , clear in upper and middle left corner

your light tunnel has collapsed and needs replacing. you can get the part and do it yourself, or you'll have to send it in to an infocus authorized service center. try av solutions in ny. they're pretty good.

Black and white specks from InFocus X1 projector

if you can get a menu when you press the menu button, reset the settings to factory default. if you don't get a menu, the color wheel or the dmd chip is bad. either way, you'll have to replace the entire optical engine. and unfortunately, infocus no longer has any more in stock.

Take you bulb out to see if the bulb is defective in any way. If its darker then there might be a chance there might have a dark cloud toward the bell of the bulb.

on my XU 55 the trick to read the lamp hours is to press and hold down the power button in about 20 seconds when the projector is turned on. there will come a window in the upper left corner that tells about total hours and lamp hours. the window will disappear quite fast, so one might need to do it twice.

I have a 4805 and have gone thru 2 bulbs in 3-4 years. When I changed the bulbs I cleaned with vaccum the best I could and not the upper corners of the image are darkening

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!

Image has bend at top of screen

first reset the setting to factory default. if it persists on a regular image too, either the lens, the tunnel or something else in the optical engine is damaged (from a fall?).
