Re: power not working

I have an infocus lp70+ it turns on and displays an image for about 2 seconds even if you push the menu button, then the bulb powers off and it acts like it overheated. It does this when it is clearly not overheating. Please help me, I can be emailed at

Re: power not working

Forget about sending to InFocus. It's 400 to fix. The fuse is easy to replace. It is on the middle board under the metal heat sink. They are hard wired in (soldered) and require a soldering iron to fix. Most people just wire in a radio shack replacement fuse holder with a 2 amp fuse. The problem of the blowing fuse seems to be more prominent when the projector is inverted (upside down).

Hooking up projector to laptop with only HDMI port

The PG-F320W has a DVI-I port between the VGA/Component input and the VGA output. You will need an HDMI to DVI cable or a HDMI to DVI adapter and either an HDMI or a DVI cable. If you use the audio input of the projector, you will also need the audio cable between the computer and the projector. (Make sure to disable the HDMI as the audio playback device. In Windows, go to the Hardware and Sound Control Panel. Then go down to Sound and Manage Audio Devices. Click on the Playback tab and check your output device. Click on Start for Windows 7 and earlier, Windows Key + X for Windows 8. Then select Control Panel.) has good prices for most cables. The HDMI to DVI cables are here: .

The manual for the PG-F320W is available here: . See page 21 for the DVI cable connection information. See page 61 for video resolutions that the projector can handle.

I hope this helps.

Epson PowerLite 410W projector (used for a smart board in a classroom) won't project anything or even turn on. Power button (maybe lamp indicator light? I don't really know anything about this...)...

It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.
