    With no connections extra the basic Infocus screen is still light green not black and white as I would expect I bought this S/H and I noticed that there were three metal plates screwed in front of each colour lens one had a very light yellow colour plastic lens, one had a bluey black plastic lens and the other has a red dish colour lens all distortd with heat and speckly this seems like a problem

    Looking at your article there are the large magnifying lenses which seem to be the light source,[three off] then the LCD section. [three in one]HOWEVER on mine there are plastic coloured piecies in between these two items. These are damaged if I cannot find replacements any suggestions. are they filters or just colours like disco colours on white bulbs. Are they polarised or normal plastic. They look like 32mm slides mounted on aliminium and slide out of their holders.

    I cannot name parts I need so I cannot order them from anywhere. GO AHEAD give me your best shot with HINTS & Tips for replacements I may pickup on the web. It seems this may be an expensive repair issue so I will make it a learning curve and experiment. First how does it work etc. light goes from here to here them through this to that etc.
    This is great.

    Ok I will try again. I tried them before I started this post but they refered me to someone else who still has not replied to my mail.
    Thats why I thought I could get more help here, and I would learn something useful. I have nothing to lose so if I blow it up learning SO BE IT.

    Check out the manual here.

    Also check this out:

    The colors on the video image are incorrect.


    Do the following after attempting to adjust the color in the Picture menu. You can access the picture menu by pressing the Menu button and navigating to Main Menu > Picture.

    NOTE The directions below apply to most InFocus projectors. Your model may vary slightly.

    1. Reset the projector to the factory default settings. Press the Menu button. Then navigate to Main Menu > Settings > Service. Select Factory Reset. Note that if you have created special settings (for example, colors and sources), these will be reset to the original defaults.

    2. If you are using a composite cable, try using an S-video or Component Video to upgrade the signal. Nearly all InFocus models will accept an S-video cable. All ScreenPlay and a number of business models include component connectors. See the Video Connections chart for your model for more information. Video connections charts are available for most models on the product home pages.

    3. Change sources. Try connecting the projector to another video source.

    4. Try different cables. It could be a faulty cable. Check the cables for bent or broken pins. If any pins are damaged, the cable will need to be replaced with an InFocus-approved cable. You can contact InFocus Technical Support for part information.

    5. Upgrade the projector firmware. See Firmware Updates on the main support page.

    6. If the colors are still not correct, it is possible that there is an internal problem that requires repair. Take the projector to your dealer or contact InFocus Technical Support.

    Please read this excellent article here. It deals with CLEANING the three prism lenses that you are looking at. If you feel this could help, you may want to look into doing this, be careful, as you can further damage the equipment in this procedure.

    As far as replacement goes, which sounds like what you need, you will need to contact InFocus for help there.

    I would guess that the projector is more than 2 years old, so not covered by warranty.

    Good Luck, tell us how it works out!

    I can diagnose and suggest replacement parts, and provide some tricks. However, the original equipment internal parts associated with this projector are not easily duplicated or replaced with non-OEM solutions.

    The problem you have is indicative of an overheating event. This can be caused by a clogged fan filter, allowing heat to build up inside and destroy certain parts.

    There could be other items that are damaged or stressed, that have not become apparent yet.

    Considering that a replacement bulb (which you may need sometime soon?) for this unit is around US$300, and the prism parts are similar, I would consider replacing this unit with a new unit. I know of similar units around $600-700.

    Please contact InFocus customer support to price the replacement internal parts to be sure. I truly hope that you can get this projector running!

    Incidentally, I read recently an article about creating your own projector. Very interesting (to some people)!

    I am saying to you that if you want to spend the money to replace the defective items, you will HAVE to call the manufacturer, as they are dealer only parts (other than the replacement bulb). They will assist you in determining which parts you need. They will probably also suggest factory service, or disposal of the unit, as heat damage of this type is expensive to repair.

    Please refer to suggestion #6 in my second post above!

Lp240 projector

power supply is bad and needs to be replaced. unfortunately, there are no parts for this model. infocus no longer sells them, and they were made by another company that no longer makes power supplies. therefore, no schematics either. sorry.

InFocus LP240 Projector won't turn on.

there is a fuse on the power supply next to the plug (on the inside), but this model of projector has power supply issues. the biggest being that infocus no longer has parts, schematics, or component cross references for the lp240. the circuit boards were made by another company that made had their own components and now no longer makes circuit boards (they make fans and bearings), and they have no schematics either. so, i'm sorry to say that the machine is doa. there are no replacement parts available and almost no way to fix the old ones.

Sound from an InFocus LP240 Projector

it's just a line level signal with a 1/8" stereo phono jack. there is an amp and speakers in the projector, but they're meant for presentations, so there's not much to them. but there is no audio out coming from the projector, so you'd need a separate amp and speakers coming from the ps2.

Infocus LP240 projector will not power up

if you don't even get an led, it's the power supply. it may just be the fuse on it. take the top off and see if the fuse is blown. but make sure to replace it with the exact size and type.
