Clean it out. use canned air and blow the dust out of it. sometimes after many overheating issues, the temperature sensor needs to be replaced. but first clean it out and make sure the fans work well. if they spin slowly, replace them.

Hey i was watching a movie when i believe the projector overheated.. i opened it and know it has all the lights on but wont work?

Possible that the lamp /lamp holder has burned. if the lamp is not lit then it is possible that the power supply has tripped due to a thermal shut down. Allow the unit to cool down , remove the power and then try again.
if there is no sucess then it is possible that the lamp/power to the lamp is faulty.

I have an infocus in26 projector that has a shadow on one side of the image. i have been told this is indicative of a light tunnel collapse, is this a problem i can repair and if so how do i get the new...

it is the light tunnel. it is moderately easy to replace. just remember which screws go where. remove the lamp door, the top, rear and sides (8 screws on bottom, 2 in back). you'll see the colorwheel between the lamphousing and the lens. unplug the 2 cables for the colorwheel from the main board. unscrew the colorwheel base. the tunnel is under the metal clip next to the colorwheel. remove the clip and tunnel. replace tunnel and replace the clip, colorwheel, top, and lamp door. the top comes off as one piece, but must be replaced as 2 pieces. there are clips attaching the front to the top.

the part number for the tunnel is 306-0113-xx (if you have a in26+, it's # 306-0122-xx) and you can purchase it from any authorized infocus service center (find the closest one to you on the infocus website).

I have an Infocus SP5000. The unit turns on,but

I use an infocus for my church. I don't believe there is a counter shut off, or a reset that would revent the light from operating. I sugest you go ahead and replace the lamp.

Infocus in26 fan runs continually

The fan does run continuously on this projector however it should be running very very slow when the projector has completed it's lamp cool down routine.
The reason for this is that a portion of the switching power supply remains energized (running) when the projector is at rest. But as I mentioned it should run very slow in this state. If it remains running full blast then most likely the fan speed control chip is shorted which can cause fail 2 ways, either the fan 1. runs full
speed or 2. remains stalled (then the projector will go over-temp and shut itself down) I hope this answers you question.

Lamp won't stay lit

I've got the same problem, I'm wondering if it has to do with some sort of auto shut off kicking in due to overheating or something, I was gonna try replacing the fan to see if it's something to do with that

Infocus LP820 - Turns on for 30sec then shuts down

This could be one of two problems I have seen with another model Infocus projector (they are very good projectors though)

The first is the video input. Make sure it is attached correctly at both ends of the cable.
The second, remove the dust covers and blow them out. The problem can arrise if the temperature sensor detects the air inside the unit is getting too hot. If you can see the sensor when the dust covers are off (it will look like a little lump of goo on the end of a wire) then just give it a wipe as well. If dust settles on those it can cause incorrect temps to be reported.

Hope that solves your poblem =)
