    I just tried a Sharp flat screen with the tuner and guess waht it worked just fine! So the problem appears to be with the projector itself.

    Tried all,but not successful sorry to say, I think I will upgrade my projector. Thank you so VERY much for your time and effort. It is greatly appreciated.

A good idea would be to auto or manualy tune it into the channel, this may sort the problem out!!

good luck

    remove all the connections again and try reconnecting it again properly and check out.also check any of the jack where u connect the plug is loose internally of properly firm.
    sometimes loose jacks causes this problem.

    component: These are the Red, Green and Blue phono connection on the back of the unit. This is the best connection available in this unit and it is the way u connect the unit to the TV and u have to say that the picture is stunning; this again is down to the source material. IF you are for example playing a really old movie, where the picture has not been cleaned up then the picture will still look grainy,black and white  but put something like Toy Story, Finding Nemo etc and the picture is gorgeous. You may sometimes see them labelled as Y-Pb-Pr, but essentially each lead breaks the picture down into its respective colours, ie red, blue and green, and therefore by dedicating a cable per colour you get outstanding results.

  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    the main thing the jacks of the HARMON KARDON RECEIVER should be inserted in proper sockets .so try inter changing the jacks in to another sockets and check it may work.

    RGB Scart: Again you will need a decent RGB Scart connector, before u purchased by component cables this is the way u connect your player, bear in mind that you may have to set the Scart to RGB Scart within the OSD (On Screen Display) (not all Scart leads are capable of RGB connections, so make sure that you get a RGB Scart should you wish to connect via this method) additionally if you TV has multiple Scart sockets, not all of them may accept an RGB signal so you need to do a little investigating by inserting the wires in all the jacks 1 by 1 and checking in which it gives proper picture and colour.

    S-Video: this lead basically split the video into 2 signals, therefore giving a slightly clearer picture than the connection worse than it, which is composite; the composite video connection is the yellow phono jack avoid this form of connection if humanly possible.

  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

    The connections above will put the picture on the screen, but what about audio. There are three methods of audio from this player. The best being the coaxial (orange phono) or the optical connection. The optical connection is literally a fibre optic and when you plug in the cable you can see a red light, it is this light that carries the signal. The other method is using the red and white audio options; again avoid these if possible.

When I connect the IN72 to a Digital TV Terminal I see horizontal moving lines on the screen.

the resolution doesn't match. reset the projector settings to factory default and make sure the settings are correct, and if the projector can handle the digital signal. you can also try swapping the cables.

IN72 Projector problem

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.

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.

Infucos IN72 projector

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.

1 Answer


Try using a different cable.

If the response is the same on a different cable , then the Mainboard might be at fault - this machine should still be under warranty and the warranty will cover repairs.
