IN76 Pojector Just Turned Off, Will Not Turn Back On

Last night while watching the football game my Infocus IN76 just turned off. No noise, no warning, no nothing. Projector will not power up. No lights no flashing, nothing. Tried a new power supply cable on a good plug and still nothing.

Projector was plugged into a Monster (Theatre) Surge protector and it was not storming so lightning is not likely.

We have not seen any warnings that the bulb was about to go out. Does the unit refuse to turn on when the bulb is out? Any thoughts? Unit is less than one year old.

    IN72 did the same thing except I heard a quick pow and a small puff of smoke shot out of the side of the unit. Now there is no activity whatsoever on the unit. Different model, but same symptoms. My unit died on me about six months after I got and I don't know if they extended the warranty after the did whatever they did to fix it.

    Same thing happened to me last night. The night before my big Superbowl party!!!! I called Infocus and paid $35.00 for the guy to tell me there was nothing he could do and that I need to send it in to be repaired. Did you guys get yours repaired?? How did they fix it??

My InFocus IN76 just started displaying yellow and white dots.

are the dots pixelated or blurred? if they are pixelated, you have a dmd chip issue and will have to replace the whole optical engine. if they are blurred, it is an optics problem, most likely the colorwheel. that can be replaced individually. you can get parts from an infocus service center or send it in to one for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
