No they will not interchange.

The DP6860 takes a bulb number LAMP-030 and is a 250 watt bulb.

The DP6850 takes a bulb number LAMP-017 and is a 190 watt bulb.

If you could physically make them fit by some means, likely just the wattage difference would cause problems with the projector. These bulbs require much more electronics to light up than what a normal household bulb does. I'm assuming the projector would think the lamp is either burned out or worst case cause damage to the power supply in the projector.

I have a proxima 6850 and at least once a week it shuts down like the lamp has gone out, I turn it off for a minute from the power switch on the side of the projector and when I turn it back on it works...


Sounds like a heat issue, direct a small table fan into the unit next time and see if it stays on longer. If so then you may want to blow out the case with compressed air to get dust accumulation off heat sink or internal radiator.

Firmware flash Proxima X350


Hi,

Make sure the projector is in flash more before connecting. (read flash instructions)
When it prompts for drivers show the uncompressed flasher program catalogue. It should find the drivers for 'Infocus Projector Flash'.
After this you can run the program and continue normal flashing procedure.

Good luck.

Projection off the screen?


Try pressing the "Aspect/Prog -" button on the remote - it should be just underneath the number 9 key - try pressing once, see if it fits better, try pressing again to see if it improves until you get a better match

If this is seen when you are connecting to a cable box or satellite box like DirecTV through or other such device your issue is most likely a DC ground loop. Here are some suggestions:
Video Projector ground loop
1) If you have horizontal hum bars when your projector is connected to a set-top box or other equipment that are on a different circuit or are grounded causing a ground potential between the source and the projector
2) Hum bars are the result of a ground loop, usually caused by cable television that has not been properly grounded
Try this to verify:
1) Disconnect your cable television coax from the wall by unscrewing it.
2) Run your Projector and verify that you are no longer getting the lines.
If you have verified that the issue was a ground loop by testing the solution requires a DC
Ground Blocker style device similar to the below options:
1) Go to http://www.cablesandconnectors.com/02100-02.HTM (part number 2118)
2) Purchase a DC GROUD BLOCKER & ISOLATION TRANSFORMER either from the above or similar electronics store location.
3) Other examples and ground loop explanations for both Video & Audio can be found at the following link for information about ground loop; scroll to Why Ground Loop is a Problem:
http://www.epanorama.net/documents/groundloop/index.html
4) Other commercial antenna signal isolators are available on the web or simply see your local Radio Shack
5) Connect the isolator device chosen to your set-top box and hook it back up.
You will be back-up and running in no time.

Discolored image and lines...


I also am having the same problem. at first it only showed up after the projector was on for about 15 minutes. Now I get a purple vertical bar on the right of the screen. I also get vertical green bars spread across the screen.
Does anyone have a diagram of how this machine is assembled?
