Hi Here is the info for you :: Caring For The Air Filter The air filter should be cleaned about every 100 hours. If the indicators or a message prompts you to clean the air filter, clean the air filter as soon as possible. If the soiling will not come off the air filter, or it becomes damaged, then it needs to be replaced. Please replace the air filter as soon as possible. memoWhen you replace the lamp, please replace also the air filter. Turn off the projector, and unplug the power cord. Allow the lamp bulb to cool for at least 45 minutes. Apply a vacuum cleaner to the top of the filter cover and the air filter to clean. If the soiling will not come off the air filter, or it becomes damaged, it needs to be replaced. If the air filter needs to be replaced, contact your dealer to prepare a new air filter. Tell the dealer your air filter type. Turn on the projector power, and reset the filter timer. (1) While the projector running, press the MENU button to open the menu. (2) Choose the ?OPTION? on the menu using the / button, then press the button or ENTER button. (3) Choose the ?FILTER TIME? using the / button, then press and hold theRESET button for 3 seconds. (4) Choose the ?RESET? using the button. memo Incorrectly resetting of the filter timer (resetting without replacement, or neglect of resetting after replacement) will result in incorrect message functions.

ALSO CHECK YOUR FAN. IF THE FAN OR A HEAT SINK IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY (I.E. THE FAN MAY JUST NEED TO BE CLEANED OR REPLACED, THERE SHOULD BE A SMALL HEAT SINK. IF CLOUDED W/DUST, IT WILL KEEP THE OPERATION SHORT). ALSO CHECK IF YOU HAVE SET ANY TEMPERATURE SHUTDOWN PARAMETERS. IF YOUR LAMP HEATS UP FOR SO LONG AND REACHES A TEMPERATURE THAT WILL AFFECT THE CIRCUITS, THIS OF COURSE WILL SHUT DOWN YOUR UNIT UNEXPECTEDLY. HOPE THIS HELPS...JGUAM

There is an access panel on the side of the television the air filter is behind that panel with the air vents

SOURCE: Displayed massege to check air flow

With most projectors there is a foam air filter behind a grill that is the opening to the cooling channels. A fan ensures air flow to cool the lamp, etc. This filter prevents dust from gumming up the works (and depending on design) may prevent dust getting into the optics. As the filter gets dirty it gradually cuts off the air and at some point a protective circuit kicks in and turns off the lamp.
If the projector is on you will feel a stream of hot air coming out of the exit vent. Projectors vary in terms of amount of air flow, so its difficult to define what is normal for a specific model. However, you can simply hold a hand in front of the vent and see if there is air flow (It will be hot air so, careful). If there is a "good" stream of air things are fine, but if only a very light flow is felt the filter may be dirty.
If the filter has not been cleaned or replaced recently make sure the projector is turned off and cooled down then take off the inlet cover and remove the filter. Clean or replace per the instructions for the projector (and periodically as defined .. but taking into account the operating conditions). Once cleaned turn on the projector and feel the "normal" air current for future reference.
Heat is one of the major causes of projector failure, so make sure cooling vents (inlet and outlet) are not obstructed and filters are kept clean

I just replaced the lamp on an Infocus X10 DLP projector. The left half of the screen is now darker than the right side. What can this be? Thanks.


This is seemingly a common issue on the IN82 (which I've also had) and is usually resolved by switching off the 'BrilliantColor' setting in the menu.

Infocus LP530 will turn on and work great for 15 minutes then shuts down and the green light turns orange and blinks. The Bulb only has 283 hours on it.


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work get a small fan and place it near the projector ro provide extra cooling. The projector is running border line on high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Projector shows briefly and cutsl off


are you sure it's the fan? if the lamp cuts out and the fans still run, the problem is the colorwheel. if you are sure the fan is not moving, it will need replacing, but there is no fan sensor that would shut the projector down if the fan does not spin. there is, however, a temperature sensor that'll shut it down if it gets too hot. wheather it's the fan or the colorwheel, clean the dust out of the projector with canned air to help prevent overheating. then get the parts from an infocus service center and replace them yourself, or send it in for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

Our Infocus sp5000 is shutting down because it is getting too hot. We had just cleaned the filter.


you also need to clean out the machine with canned air. also check to see that all of the fans are running. if they are not all running, they need to be replaced. also, the temp sensor near the lamp housing may also need replacing.

Clean your air filters. The unit will shut down if it overheats. Ensure that all the filters are cleaned and replaced regularly.

it might be overheating. clean off the dust filters (bottom towards the front). if there's not enough airflow to cool it down, the projector will shut off to save itself from damage.

InFocus LP725 light goes out after 10 minutes


The Projector will turn off after so many hours of running the same bulb module. The counter will turn on a replace bulb LED. Installing the new bulb module should reset the counter and turn off the LED.

Check the projector’s lamp to ensure that it is securely connected
in the lamp module. Make sure by removing it and reinserting it.

Check the cables for problems.

When testing, power up in this order. Projector, Computer monitor, Computer.

A minor power surge may cause the lamp to shut off. Turn the
projector off, wait at least 30 seconds, then turn it back on.

I hope these suggestions help
