InFocus 4805 lost red

I've had my InFocus Screenplay 4805 for 3 years and it has done 1600 hours. Last night I was watching a film and there was a load snap. The projector kept running ok but the red part of the spectrum seems to have been washed out. Any thoughts - thanks. Geoff

Yes Geoff, What has happened is one of the two red glass filters on the color wheel has separated and flew off which was the snap you heard. So white light is in half of all parts of the spectrum that require any red.

There should also be a vibration now that can be felt on the projector and possibly heard as well.
I suggest not running it again until this is repaired as more damage could result. If you have the skills and the part that flew off isn't destroyed it can be carefully glued back in place and problem solved. I have seen quite a few of these glass filter segments survive this.

Good Luck!

When unit was turned off last night it "popped". Now it does not come on and the power light flashes at a rate of 1 flasher per second.


the lamp blew. take it out and see if there is shattered glass inside. if there is, replace the lamp and blow the dust out of the projector. the dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expel. the lamp probably overheated and shattered. otherwise, it was at the end of it's life (usually 3000 hours).

Infocus 4805


You may have got finger prints inside the unit. Use alcohol and a paper towel or q tip/swab to clean all the glass surfaces including the bulb. You should never touch these bulbs because the oils from your hand will decrease the life of the bulb. Also make sure you put all the parts back and that they are tight. Last item is the lens may screw for focus.

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.

No color


Color wheel disc is broken and not repairable, problem is unless you know someone that can get the part you have to take your projector to an authorised service centre.
