Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 5700 Multimedia Projector
I bought an InFocus 5700 projector from eBay, it seems to be in good working order as when plugged in the LED turns green and then when the power button is hit the LED flashes green- as explained it should in the manual. However after a few minutes the flashing green LED changes to a flashing red LED. As in the manual I have counted a two second interval between each flash and there is only one red LED flash per sequence, this suggests that "the lamp wont strike after 5 attempts" as the manual states for this error sequence of flashes.
Based on other forum posts I have checked the lamp door and the it is correctly sealed with the door trip switch in working order and switched "on". With this in mind I can only think that the lamp has blown. However it was sold to me on the basis that the lamp has only 200 hours, so it should be fine.
Inspection of the lamp has me wondering. In the silver part of the lamp there are two holes each with a small metal ring around the hole. Only one hole has a filament wire coming from it to central column in the lamp whilst the other hole is empty.
Does anyone know if there is supposed to be two filament parts, one coming from each hole or even better can someone send me a picture of an intact bulb? If I can gather as much information about how to inspect the bulb for if its blown as possible, it could save me £300 should it mean I don't end up buying a spare bulb I don't need!

Are you speaking of the small prism shaped tunnel or the lamp itself? The prism or light tunnel may be accessed underneath the metal bracket that holds the color wheel in place. Be extremely careful as even breathing on this may cause it to collapse (ok, I exaggerate).

SOURCE: lamp didnt strike
You should reset the lamp timer as this LCD Projector's counter counts down the hours and will not fire up if this has not been done.
If you have reset the lamp timer and the problem stil occurs , you'll have to replace the Ballastboard ( lamp's powersupply )

Usually when the lamp is good and you get this message, the ballast is bad. That is the part thatdrives the lamp. Check with Infocus for a repalacement balast.

This could be one of two problems I have seen with another model Infocus projector (they are very good projectors though)
The first is the video input. Make sure it is attached correctly at both ends of the cable.
The second, remove the dust covers and blow them out. The problem can arrise if the temperature sensor detects the air inside the unit is getting too hot. If you can see the sensor when the dust covers are off (it will look like a little lump of goo on the end of a wire) then just give it a wipe as well. If dust settles on those it can cause incorrect temps to be reported.
Hope that solves your poblem =)
