Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 5700 Multimedia Projector
While pluged in the power LED continuously blinks to the beat of the fan on the lamp. The lamp fan is continuously running while unit is plugged in and it has a ticking sound which the power LED blinks to the beat of the ticking sound.
I push the power button and nothing happens. I'm thinking either the lamp is bad, or the power supply is bad.
Hi, we had the same problem... Bought a new lamp and then encountered
the power light blinking repeatedly problem. After much frustration and
anquish, we finally got it to work again... The way I did it was, take
out the power cord from the back, then hold down the power switch and
re-insert the cord. Somehow it made a difference to the unit and it
powered back up all fine.. Cos we heard the fan come to life properly.
Cant guarantee it'll work for everyone but give it a try all the same.

I have just had the same probelm and took it to B&H for an inpsection and quote for repair over $1000 AUD, tried a Sony repair place same problem, the costs for repair were stupid, trying to force me down the line of buying a new unit, so through investigation discovered there are various eletronic repair places, one guy looked and tested the board and apparently two capacitors on the unit had fried, cost $100 AUD, good as new....
So although its a little frustrating, forget the mainline service providers, go to your local eletronics shop, and get the boards tested
Hope it helps anyone.

Anyone ever find a solution to this
I have the exact same issue
I had already sent the damn thing in last year, good thing I purchased a extended warrenty and I got it in just in time
they stated they replaced the mother board power supply
and updated the software. Now last week I have what everyone else is seeing.
And as far as support WHAT A JOKE, That's a hole other issue in itself

Mine too. I'm on my second bulb..~1000 hours...noticed the LED blinking slowly when the unit was powered off. I took it down, swapped in the old bulb...flickering with the fan...put the newer bulb back in...flickering with fan/no power up.
THIS ALL TRANPIRED AN HOUR BEFORE THE SUPERBOWL!

Mine did the same thing tonight.
Last night it was fine. What gives ?
The maunal says that it the lamp is bad, the led should be red.

SOURCE: Unit will not Power Up.
Terry, I had the same problem. Its a small capacitor on the power board labelled 'C16'(right in the middle of the board) its value is 16volt 100uf.
I also changed the biggest one on the board as well( 450volt 270uf @85deg). The big one was sourced through RS components @£5.14, the other I got through a maplins store for the grand sum of 13 pence.
Both are quite easy to change if your not adverse to taking the unit apart. (Just remember where all the leads plug in).
A torx T10 screwdriver, and soldering iron is all you need.
