Hi. I've had my InFocus LP500 projector for about nine years. Twice its power supply has been replaced (usage) but never its lamp. The projector has been used regularly, handled with care and cleaned from...


i was thinking of a different model, but I'll be honest, if you are sure your lamp is good and ALL of the fans are on, then it probably is the power supply acting up again.

LP540 Projector Lamp Does Not come on> it has an error message; "Lamp didn't Strike". Does that mean the Lamp/Bulb is bad?


Hi,
It's most likely the lamp is bad or the part that starts the lamp called a ballast is bad. The LP540 model has an issue with the ballast burning out. The ballast is a part that starts or strikes the lamp. The only sure way to test is to try starting it with a known good lamp.
You can check for signs of a bad lamp. Think about how long you've had your projector & estimate the total hours on your lamp. If it's over 500 it very well could be the lamp as they fail at any time. Remove the lamp cover door & pull out the lamp to visually inspect it. Look in good light & use a magnifier if available too check for any cracks or chips in the small bulb & look to see if the round part of the small bulb is covered with a lot of white or if it's not round anymore. If it's very white it means it has a lot of hours on it. If there's any loose glass inside (check by turning the lamp cage in different directions) then the lamp is bad. If it's nice & clear or has only a small white spot it's probably a good lamp.
I repair almost all Infocus models if you need a quote.
Thanks & good luck,
Jim

How can you tell if the lamp is blown?


if the inside has black spots, bulges, fogging, or it has shattered, replace it.

My InFocus 4805 SP projector is showing just black and white


If you have any video at all and it's only Black and white there is a 99.99% chance that your Color Wheel has lost all of it's glass color filters.
You can confirm this by removing the lamp. then look straight into the projector where the lamp was and you should see the color wheel of colored glass segments (Red, Green and blue) I believe you won't see them because they came off of the wheel.
Also if you lift up the projector and turn it around in various angles and you will hear the small pieces of broken glass from the color wheel.
Unfortunately you will need to take it to an authorized service center for repair. Be prepared to spend upwards of $300 for the repair.

Cheers

Loud huming noise and vibrations from infocus x2 unit.


the berings on the colorwheel are failing. i suggest replacing it. also, the discoloration is baked-on dust. the wheel can be cleaned, but it's no recomended, due to the finish on the glass and the fact that the heat has probably weakened the glue holding the glass on the wheel. it's the same glue holding the light tunnel together, and it's collapse is probably causing the faint image. the parts aren't all that expensive, but you can only get them through an infocus authorized service center. check the website for one.
