Re: no power on Compaq MP2800 Microportable Projector

I am currently struggling with this issue.
There is an easily-accessed fuse inside the projector.
I was very excited to discover this last night.
However, before you get you're hopes up (as I did) remember: If the fuse blew, something else probably went first. After buying and replacing the fuse today, I realise that I need to replace or repair the power supply as it pops the fuse every time.

Here's how to get to the fuse:
Take off the lamp.
Now, looking at the projector from the back, you need to remove the left hand side panel.
This involves taking out 2 screws from that panel, 2 from the bottom and the 2 video connector hexagonal bolt things that are also in that panel.
The panel sort of hinges off, starting from the bottom.
You will see the fuse in the bottom right corner where the power lead goes.
It is a slow-blow (time delay fuse) so get the exact same one to replace it. A pack of 10 cost me €4.19 in Maplin, Galway, Ireland.

Anyways, this did not do the job for me... the power supply set the fuses off like fireworks and also blew a few in the socket plug as well (I don't think US readers will have those)
I will let you know how I get on with the power unit....

Good luck to ye!

Infocus IN1 Gaming Projector

Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius. 

The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.

Just read some product specifications with google's help. But if for wireless capabilities you mean sending/receiving images over a wireless lan, the answer is simply no. This is not a very recent model - the capability you want is present in a few recent and very expensive models (e.g. panasonic).

Hi gambill32

If the VGA is a output you could get a converter that takes VGA to Component ( RGB ) and hook up the 3 x component RCA's to the TV 's component in.

This converter can be found at most good PC and AV shops.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

P.S. If you need any further guidance , just send me a request.

Compaq MP2800 Lamp powers down after a few seconds

Hi Wayne

It is normal for the lamp's fan to start running , but should actually happen within 15 seconds of starting up. Try changing the lamp's fan and if the problem still persists then you will have to replace the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

Compaq iPAQ MP2810 Multimedia Projector

hi all... i have this projector and it boosts up flashes the blue screen and sometimes the projected image too. then goes to standby mode.

I have managed to keep it going enough to see the problem for myself. Here is what i did.. lye the projector on its left side while a cool blower blows through the left side of the lamp housing. fire it up and it will stay on. I went to the menu and did a factory reset as well as lamp hours reset. checked the lamp hours and it was at zero. so its never going to stay on for long for one reason.

As the lamps get older the emit more heat and therefore cause the unit to shutdown. so if you want it to work your going to have to order that lamp. The cheapest i found is from austrailia link off ebay below.

last link is for the manual found in this forum but not clear on how to get it.

Hope you get a good result bulb on order.

vote me happy

Projector overheating and turns off after 20 mins

I have a HP VP6111 projector that works fine on a table top but overheats ( overheating ) when turned upside down and hung from my ceiling. My solution...I went to Circuit City and bought two 80mm computer fans. I also purchased a 12V power supply from Radio Shack. I put one fan on front of my projector and the other on the back of the projector and wired them into the 12V power supply. I mounted both fans with velcro. The front fan pushes air and the rear fan pulls air. The projector now runs fine without shutting off. The fans are 12V and push 34 cubic feet per minute of air. I am very happy with this solution.
