working with expired lamp can cause the overheat, and the power supply will be damadged, you need to replace the chemical caps at secondary parts as shown in the picture below:

Infocus sp5000 wouldn't turn on. i replaced the bulb & it worked fine yesterday...today it won't turn on again. i screwed the lamp cover back on tight so don't think it is that.


take the lamp cover off.
get a toothpick and push it down where the cover operates the swicth and check that it clicks on and off properly.
check the air filter cover as well

I have an Infocus 5000 projector that we have just tried to replace our 2nd brand new lamp. Each time we attempt to replace the lamp we get no picture and the red light blinks once so often. At first when...


be sure and reset the lamp hrs. But you really need to make sure you haven't pushed the lamp connection in the lamp housing out of its cubby hole. I've seen this alot, the connection gets pushed in and when you think you have the lamp in, it's not really connected. Really the only way to check this is to remove the top cover. Before you do this though, one other thing that can happen is the lamp door gets mishapen due to the heat from the lamp and can cause the thing that pushes against the safety switch when the door is on not to depress it fully. you can power the unit up while holding the switch in with something non conductive to see if it is in fact the lamp door. anything beyond this is likely the power supply/ballast being defective, or the blower fan in the right rear of the unit not working.

I start up my screen play 5000 and no startup menu appears or no picture, the lamp is working as the projection is white only. What is wrong. Regards: Shane Cook


The Projector was sitting unplugged for about a year, after having the projector plugged in for a while I disconected from the power for about a minut and then plugged the power back in.
I guess the battery within the Projector had no power.

New lamp, no power!


if there are no leds lit, i'm surprised that it powers up. but if there is no light when the fans are running, it may be the ballast that needs replacing.

Infocus SP 5000 loud electrical noise, then dead


check the lamp again. look in the reflection in the bell of the center glass. do you see any black spots or cracks or uneven bulging? if so, change the lamp and blow the dust out, because it may be over heating. otherwise, the power supply is fried and needs replacing.

Hello David,
The best way to find the best price is to do some hunting/research. Google "infocus 4805 lamp"
and wade through to find the best price.
You will find instructions on the lamp replacement procedure in the manual. If you dont have the user manual browse to www.projectorcentral.com and search infocus 4805 and on their spcifications page there is a "user manual" Acrobat PDF icon.
click on the icon to open the manual in pdf format

Take Care!
