Question about InFocus IN72 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Infocus SP 5000 loud electrical noise, then dead

I have an infocus Screenplay 5000 with around 1,200 hours on the bulb. While watching a movie, it let out a burst of really loud electrical buzzing (think Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory) and died. The pilot light on the power button won't even light (it glows when plugged in). I looked at the lamp and it looks fine: clean, no signs or damage. It actually looks like new. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Check the lamp again. look in the reflection in the bell of the center glass. do you see any black spots or cracks or uneven bulging? if so, change the lamp and blow the dust out, because it may be over heating. otherwise, the power supply is fried and needs replacing.

Was watching a movie, heard a loud pop & then the fan was very loud & noisy


The lamp blew out and the broken glass is in one of the fans. You MUST get the glass out of the fans, intakes and bulb compartment before replacing the $275 - $500 bulb...

I have a Infocus Screen Play 5000 bulb has 324 hours the picture is light green.


try reflashing the firmware, check your cables by wiggling the ends coming out of the projector and watch the picture for any changes, if it goes to normal at any time, your cables are just worn out. if that doesn't do the trick, maybe your lcd polarizers are burnt, i really need a better description of the picture.

New lamp, no power!


if there are no leds lit, i'm surprised that it powers up. but if there is no light when the fans are running, it may be the ballast that needs replacing.

No pwer to Infocus sp 4805


My 4805 made a loud pop noise and smoke and died.

I thought it the bulb and wasted $340 on that purchase.

They are subject to overheating and the main circuit board may be fried.
It cost me $50 for a tech to confirm my suspicons of the same.

Look at the main circuit board and you might idenify a scorched
overheated area.. My shop told me you can purchase a new main
board.. Diagnosed by no power to the bulb...
