Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 7205 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Lamp automatically turns off

I recently replaced the lamp on my 7205. The "replace lamp" message never reset. After about a months worth of play, the projector comes on for a few seconds and then automatically shuts off. I can't get it to turn back on. I have disconnected the power, reconnected and tried. Same thing.

It seems as if it is an electronics issue or perhaps a sensor ...

any clues?

    Some problem. Replaced the lamp and now after 30 up to 2 hours of play, the screen goes dark, sound remains. If I am watching a DVD, can switch to TV and watch another hour or so. KD

You have to follow the manual reset instructions in the user manual. Something like press and hold both brightness buttons for 10 seconds. See the manual.

Why does my projector Infocus 7205 says constantly replace lamp and we have a new lamp? Thanks for helping...

On the projector you will see 2 buttons for adjusting the brightness, with the projector on press both the brightness up and down at the same time.
Hold them both pressed for 10 seconds. This will reset the lamp timer.

Take Care!

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.

You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).
