Sounds likely that the projector is overheating. Try removing and carefully cleaning the filters over the air inlets. Carefully washing them in warm water and squeezing dry is usually satisfactory, but DO NOT replace in the projector and turn on until the filters have had at least 10 - 12 hours to thoroughly dry out.
your projector is detecting it is overheating, check that nothing is blocking the vents and that the fans are not clogged. If the vents and fans are dirty clean thema paintbrush and hoover. If they arent then the lamp maybe the culprit
Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius.
The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.
I have a HP VP6111 projector that works fine on a table top but overheats ( overheating ) when turned upside down and hung from my ceiling. My solution...I went to Circuit City and bought two 80mm computer fans. I also purchased a 12V power supply from Radio Shack. I put one fan on front of my projector and the other on the back of the projector and wired them into the 12V power supply. I mounted both fans with velcro. The front fan pushes air and the rear fan pulls air. The projector now runs fine without shutting off. The fans are 12V and push 34 cubic feet per minute of air. I am very happy with this solution.
