InFocus LP 850 Projector, yellow spot on screen

There is a yellow spot on the screen. We've changed the lamp, checked/cleaned the lens but the yellow spot is still projecting. Any suggestions on what might be the problem?

Unfortunately the discoloration is caused by the extreme heat generated by the Lamp has burned the LCD optical polarization filter/elements.
The only solution for this is to replace the entire LCD optical assembly.

Sorry for the bad news, :(

How do i get to the lamp to replace it

If you are looking at the projector with the lens facing you, look at the half moon shaped gray panel on the top and you will see a small **** that you can stick a flathead into. Slide the flathead away from the lens and the top should pop up. Then you will see the lamp. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws on top of the lamp and pull it out using the wire handle on top of the lamp.

Yellow spot in middle of screen projection

this could have more than one cause, but the most obvious is a burn-in on the lens or dust on the lamp. either way it has to be replaced by a professional.

Infocus lp 130 projector has developed a dark spot/line the goes from the bottom center of the screen to about halfway up. This was never there prior. Anyway know what this might be? cleaned the lens...

the light tunnel has collapsed and needs to be replaced. unfortunately, infocus no longer makes or has parts for this model. you could try and find one on ebay. usually the power supply goes on those, so if someone has one with that problem you could get it and swap out the parts. good luck!

Infocus LP 280 runs for 1 min then shuts down, runs again then

are the leds on the top lit or blinking? it could be the lamp, the ballast, or the fans. check the lamp. if there are black spots or bulges in the lamp, replace it. if not, make sure the fans are running. if they are, replace the ballast.

InFocus LP280 problem

Hi there

I'm afraid this might be a faulty Mainboard.

Your lamp will never make the Projector show funny stuff on the image.

Must warn you that a new Mainbaord is quite expensive
