Re: infocus lp530

I called InFocus and was walked through several steps to determine if it was a bad cable or an internal problem. My InFocus unit would power up and stay powered up with no problem until I connected it to the computer using the analog computer cable (blue connectors). They had me try it with a different computer and then with the S-Video cable. Each time the InFocus unit powered down within seconds of connecting to the computer. The problem is internal. The unit had to be sent to InFocus for repair ($180). If the unit works with the S-Video cable then your problem is a bad cable.

Infocus IN10 projector, when I turn it on the light blinks green for a while (with no picture) and then it shuts off and blinks red (more than 5 blinks)

if Lamp or projector shuts off after running a short period of time, This is usually a thermal issue caused by excessively
high internal temperature. The high temperature
could cause a component on the controller ECA or
the power supply to fail when it gets hot.
First you need to check the fan operation, Are 3 fans, two for lamp and one for the color wheel. Check the elevation foot, if something is broke maybe something stop the fan.
Remove the lamp module.
Examine the fan assembly through the recess in the bottom case. Plug the projector in and turn it
on. Both fans in the fan assembly should start up and run for 5 - 10 seconds, then shut down
(because there is no lamp installed). This is time enough to make sure the fans work properly.
Make the same for the color wheel fan, you need to remove the top case.

I have a Infocus Lp530 that as soon as you plug it in, all the lights on the top will continually flash green and an audible clicking sound can be heard. These two things occur before the power button is...

You can try removing the main board & reseating it. Also try plugging into another outlet & make sure the plug has a ground prong on it. Itshould have 2 flat & 1 pin shaped prongs. Otherwise the clicking sound may be the lamp trying to ignite. Normally when you plug in the LP530 the green power light is on steady & then you press it to start the lamp. If its flashing as soon as you plug it in it's likely that the main board is bad, the button board is bad, or the ballast/power board is bad.
You should remove the lamp & inspect it. It should be clear without bulging in the little bulb behind the lamp glass. I service LP530s all the time & something like that is usually the main board.
Good luck,

Infocus LP530 will turn on and work great for 15 minutes then shuts down and the green light turns orange and blinks. The Bulb only has 283 hours on it.

The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work get a small fan and place it near the projector ro provide extra cooling. The projector is running border line on high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

the high-pitched sound is the colorwheel trying to spin up to speed. that may need to be replaced. check the inside of the lamp for bulges, black spots, fogging or flaking. if it has any of those, replace the lamp. you can get parts from an infocus service center or send it to them for repair. either way, try they're really good. if you want to replace it yourself, there is a detailed step-by-step on my "tips" area. it's the same as the infocus x1, x2, x3 and sp4805. click on my picture and scroll down to tips. good luck!

if you hear chirping or a loud buzzing, you have a bad colorwheel. the lamp won't turn on if the colorwheel doesn't spin as fast as it needs to. if you don't hear anything like that, you need a new power supply. the lamp striking takes a lot of power, and if the power supply can't handle it, it shuts off. you can get the part from an infocus service center and replace it yourself, or send it to them for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good.

Wont light up

the colorwheel needs replacing. if the colorwheel won't spin, the lamp won't light. if you hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel works, which means there is a power supply issue. there is a fix for that, but you have to be good at soldering. if you are give it a try:

I turn on the 4805,green led blinks & bulb does not come on?

After a few minuets does the green blinking light turn to a red blinking light?

If so the problem is the lamp did not strike.Either the lamp has failed (most likely) or there is a problem with the power supply (less likely)

Pile of ##@!#@ infocus lp70 green light wont come on. should i smash it??

if the fans aren't running, it's the power supply. if the amber is on and the button's won't turn it on, there is an obstruction under the button panel. if all turns on but the lamp and you don't hear a high=pitched whir, it's the colorwheel. if you do, it's the ballast.
