InFocus LP630 My InFocus LP630 lamp finally burned out after 2000+ hours. I ordered and installed a replacement and "pop" goes the new bulb after 10 minutes use. It didn't just fizz out; it downright blew! I ordered and installed another new replacement bulb and "pop" goes that one after 20 minutes. I'm getting the right replacement bulb (through, and the fan's working, so what's going on? Something wrong with voltage? What? Please help! I'm a teacher, and I need my projector!

Dark spot

These bulbs are very sensitive to contamination. When installing a bulb, do not touch it with your fingers, as this will leave your natural oils on it and that will become a hot spot and burn out the lamp.
Use a clean piece of toilet tissue when installing the new lamp to eliminate the above.
Good luck!

I have a Infocus in1503. It shuts down after 10 to 30 minutes. When it does shut down there is no lights. In fact the power light goes off as well.

I seemed to have had the exact same problem... I had placed the projector on top of a small book (to raise the unit), however, did not rest the feet of the projection unit on the book and it overheated and turned off, as a result. (The bottom of the unit was making direct contact with the book which caused it to overheat since not any air was passing through between the two)

After letting it cool for a while and powering it up -- it would usually power off completely for about 15 minutes. After a little thinking, I thought it may be the lamp/bulb and waited a couple of years and bought one online that arrived yesterday.

I installed the new lamp/bulb this morning and it did the same thing. It powered down about a half hour later. Bummer.

I reset the machine to factory defaults and checked to see if it had the 1.03 firmware... It did

Then went through the settings in the setup area and turned off the 'prevent pic screen saver'... Reset the 'lamp hours'

I doubled checked the lamp/bulb installation... Turned it back on -- same thing -- it shut off after about 15 minutes or so... Then unplugged the unit and turned it over and took out the 4 or 5 chassis screws and loosened and took off the side panels and blew onto the fans and circuit board areas and gently pounded the sides to shake anything that shouldn't be there loose and put it back together.

i powered it back on and now it's been working for about 2 hours and 16 minutes!

good luck!

Lamp burned out on X1 infocus projector, Replaced lamp, new lamp stopped working in about 5 hours, got another new lamp and it does not light at all. Still blinking 3 red blinks(saying the bulb is bad)

make sure the colorwheel is spinning. if it is not, replace it. also, blow the dust out of it with canned air. excessive dust kills lamps quickly. you'll also need to reset the lamp timer. are you using an sp-lamp-009? the sp-lamp-018 looks exactly like it, but is used in th x1a and x2. the x1 only uses the sp-lamp-009. if all else fails, replace the power supply.

WARNING: Be extremely careful when removing the lamp housing. In the unlikely event that the bulb ruptures, small glass fragments may be generated. The lamp housing is designed to contain these fragments, but use caution when removing the lamp housing. Before replacing the lamp, clean the lamp compartment and dispose of cleaning materials. Wash hands after lamp replacement. Hg ? Lamp contains mercury. Manage in accordance with local disposal laws. 5 Detach the lamp connector from the projector by depressing the locking tab on the connector and lightly pulling it free. 6 Loosen the captive screw that attaches the lamp housing to the projector.Carefully remove the lamp housing. Dispose of the lamp in an environmentally proper manner. 7 Install the new lamp housing and tighten the screw. 8 Re-attach the lamp connector to the projector. The locking tab should engage when the connector is fully plugged in. 9 Replace the lamp door by sliding it into place. Be sure the lamp connector wires are not in the way. 10 Plug in the power cord and press the Power button to turn the projector back on. 11To reset the lamp hour timer, navigate to the Settings>Service menu and select Reset Lamp Hours.

Just got a new bulb assembly in today brand-new inserted it made sure everything was seated properly after about 45 minutes a large black spot appeared never had this trouble before put the old assembly...

dcamp77262, you mention that the new lamp worked for 45 minutes and then the dark spot appeared, was this the same with the previous lamp and was the previous lamp the original that came with the projection unit? If you're using a replacement lamp(not original equipp) won't be the first time that they send a lamp that does not match the ome lamp, it also could be (very possible) that you're going to need light engine replacement or repaired.

New bulb installed and it takes 10 plus minutes to start

Exchange the lamp under warranty...
You've tried almost everything else.
It's not that uncommon to experience "infancy failure" with a brand new lamp.

If the problem persists with the replacements replacement then I would suspect the Lamp power supply (Ballast) is failing.

InFocus LP725 light goes out after 10 minutes

The Projector will turn off after so many hours of running the same bulb module. The counter will turn on a replace bulb LED. Installing the new bulb module should reset the counter and turn off the LED.

Check the projector’s lamp to ensure that it is securely connected
in the lamp module. Make sure by removing it and reinserting it.

Check the cables for problems.

When testing, power up in this order. Projector, Computer monitor, Computer.

A minor power surge may cause the lamp to shut off. Turn the
projector off, wait at least 30 seconds, then turn it back on.

I hope these suggestions help
