Question about InFocus (HW-HTSCREEN76) 76" 16:9 Projector Screen

1 Answer

Projector emitting sparks

My 6 month old refurbrished Infocus 76 projector was working fine when all of a sudden the bulb quit, smoke and light started flashing from within the unit and then some sparks making loud arcing sounds. The violence quit, the power light on the projector was blinking red with a high pitch whining type sound until I pulled the plug. I did pull it as quickly as I could, took time to get to the unit from where I was sitting.

I removed the bulb thinking this may be the problem, but the blub looks great and no burn marks in that area of the housing. I did not open the case any further.

The projector is being used for home/indoors.

Dear Sirs, I have a BENQ PE8700 projector. I know it's outdated, but it still suits me fine. I've already changed the lamp, and this new one is 1000 hours old. I am recently having a problem:...


If the bulb on this projector is filament less then it may be a bad ballast. If it is that kind of a bulb the ballast is like the starter on a florescent bulb that excites the internal gases for light to be emitted. If it conks out, the bulb stops emitting light even though the cooling fan stays on.

InFocus LP650 will not come on


First try a firmware upgrade. If that doesn't help, it seems it might be a power supply issue since you said the led comes on very light. I repair these power supplies. My ebay id is gtitubro

InFocus IN74 Projector Fault


Hi there.

How many hours had it done? The bulb may have expired and as a safety precaution the projector will not switch on, otherwise the bulb will explode causeing further damage.

Cheers

InFocus LP650 will not come on


That color is not listed because it is either Green or Red. There is no Blue, if you are getting Blue, you have something that is extremely unusual.

Infocus IN26 Projector


Yes the problem is due to over heating.It would be perfectly acceptable to have inlet air to the projector that ranges between 70 ? 76 Farenheit. Most projectors are designed to operate with inlet temperatures well above this value, usually up to about 90F.Set your air-conditioner to the value specified and it should work fine..
