Question about InFocus IN72 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Powers on, but automatically goes to default screen only

Everything was working fine, then 10 min before superbowl it switched to the default screen. Now every time I turn on, regardless if it's set to the t.v., dvd, wii it just sits on the default........It appears as well some of the menu options are no longer available. I've upgrade the firmware to the 3.0 and still doesn't work.

The input board may be kaput, sounds like its not recognizing the ports. If its still under warranty, i would be in touch with infocus immediately. this def. sounds like hardware failure. Sorry if this doesnt help much!

Why will my mitsubishi lvp x300 projector only project a blue screen when I turn it on?

Blue is probably the default "no signal" screen. It means that the projector is getting no signal.

Powers off automatically

Please check the filter to the lamp, clean and reset. A poor cooling of the lamp can cause this issue . Secondly a failing lamp also is a reason. If there is no result then you must check with the service center for a consensus .

My Sony VPLHS-20 has original bulb, now just shut off 50 mins into the SuperBowl. No fault light, in fact, no lights showing on the display at all. Bulb has around 1800 hours. I waited 10 minute, red...

Pretty sure it the bulb as most are rated at 2000 hours; but also check for full air flow - clean filters etc. Bulbs can run hotter as they age, so air flow is more important, because there is an inside heat sensor that will shut the machine down.

Hi Sootycat

Ok , most of the time this would be the Fan.Powerboard that is faulty then and unfortunatelly it would be better to replace the part rather than having it repaired.

Repaired Powerboards normally give the same problem a couple of months down the line.

EP 757 Intermittent powering down

Pls check if the lamp is not so old that is giving the same problem. If lamp is almost new, then you can have a check with the Ballast unit card and then the loose connection in the Power supply or may be overheating and tripping.
