PS3 80Gb can not connect to Infocus X10 via HDMI

I have upgrade my 40Gb with new 80Gbb PS3, and the 80Gb can not connect with my Infocus X10 via HDMI cable.

First a dialog box appears on the bottom left corner " Setting up Image" and then "No input sinyal" is showing.

I've  tried the unit to my LCD via hdmi, its works fine.

My setting resolution is 720P.
Audio out via optical to receiver.
I use PS3 to watch blu ray movie.

    Same problem here too. I have tried suggested method to get the PS3 to send via HDMI cable to an InFocus X10 but I just get audio from the optical going to my audio amp but no image on the X10 projector.

    Any other thoughts from anyone would be great. - DAZ-B

    Same problem, can't find solution. Tested with 40G - worked fine.

    I have the excact same problem, and from googling the issue, I guess we are not alone. BTW, the solution with the 5-second-button-hold does not fix this problem, because I think it's a HDMI handshake problem with the 80Gb PS3. If that is software or hardware related I do not know, but maybe Sony could fix it with a new firmware upgrade in the future if it is only the software. 

    Tomorrow I get a new reciever, a Pioner VSX 1018, so maybe I can get a signal through that one... If I remember it, I'll try to get another reply in here later.

    Same problem with newly acquired PS3 80GB and an Infocus x10. I manage to, sometimes get an image through HDMI in lowest resolution, but as soon as the PS switches resolution, the projector reports "no signal".

    I read somewhere, that turning off DDC on the HDMI input might helt, after a reset (5-10 sec. hold of power button) on the PS, but that didn't work for me either.

    Any suggestions?

    Same problem here too. I have a PS3 80 gig and an infocus IN80. I got them to talk to each other a bit after days of fiddling, but I am still losing the picture signal if I try to stop a movie or change some settings. Really frustrating.

This is an X10 problem. When connecting the PS3 through the VSX1018, the image comes on perfectly with (mostly) no glitches. The reciever is then working as the HDMI-extender many use to solve this issue. The reciever on the other hand "does not use itself as an extender", so when the GUI from the reciever tries to set up an image on screen, the same handshake issue arises. This means I cannot use the room correction feature on the reciever since it requires an onscreen image to be completed.

So, without some sort of HDMI extender or amplifier (just a splitter does not work), the issue is still unresolved. Considering that products from several different manufacturers give the same problem, I'm inclined to say that this is Infocus' mess...

On a brighter note, when this setup does work, it is an unbeatable combination of pure hidef joy:)

It is not your hard drive
you have to reset the video setting and it will work again Hdmi is different on each tv so you have set this up again ok let's do this with the unit off turn the main switch on the back of the unit connect your Hdmi cable to your tv now place your finger on the front on/off switch keep your finger there ok now turn the mainswitch on the back of the unit the playstation turns on but don't remove your finget yet wait about 4 seconds or until your heard another bip (not the one when the playstation turns on) once you heard this bip remove your finger before the playstation turns off if you let it turn off try again all of this but if you remove your finger on time just wait few more seconds and bingo you have picture again using Hdmi

Infocus x10 overheating

I have had this problem a few times on the X10. The reason in my case has been to much dust on the air filter before the lamp. I usually clean it my self, but the X10 needs to be opened. If you don't feel skilled to do so, you can try use a vacume cleaner on all ventilation openings. If that doesn't help, take it to a skilled workshop. PS. This can also cause colour problems and stripes on the picture before it stops completely. The X10 should have had a changable filter in front of the lamp filter. Apart I'm very satisfied with the X10. Brg Tom

PS3 to Infocus LP 350 projector using HDMI


M1-DA is a type of DVI connection that produces both analogue and digital signals, the easiest and most quality source cable for you to get is a HDMI to M1-DA cable which is now widely available for purchase.

Infocus should have included this cable in with your projector, but instead the power at bee decided to put a M1-DA to DVI-D cable instead when most visual devices now support HDMI and not DVI nowadays.

You can try this reset method, if it doesn't work it will probably need service by a professional. Remeber that all setting will be lost, make sure you know them so you can put them back in after you are finished.

At the player stop condition,
press 3 buttons for DVD operation
(“PLAY”,”OPEN/CLOSE”, and “ SKIP”) until
“INITIALIZE” appears and disappears in the display.
(“Initialized” appears and disappears on the TV screen.)
******All user setting will be lost and its factory setting will be
restored when this initialization is made. Be sure to memorize
your setting for restoring again after the initialization
