7200 not turning on

When I press the power button nothing happens. I can hear that it is receiving power when I unplug the unit and plug it back in but the light or the fans are turning on. Any ideas?

Re: 7200 not turning on

I had pretty much the exact same problem, I could hear the fans turn barely on when plugging in, but it wouldn't power up. If you look at the power light in dark conditions, the light was doing a rapid flicker. My power supply had failed. I tried to get a replacement board, but the part is no longer available. Projector Doctor would fix it for $395, but there is a person on this board who goes by Neo32 on here and gtitubro on ebay that fixed it for me for $150. I'm a satisfied customer :-)

Our projector doesn't turn on anymore. Nothing happens when I press the power button, not even the beginnings of the start up process.

I just had the same problem today. All lights flashing and won't start up. Noticed the flashing the other day, but they stopped after i turned it on. Now nothing

My projector lamp turn on about 2 then turn off. light bulb haves

the power supply needs to be replaced. if you're good at soldering, there is a capacitor that dries up quickly on the ps board. i believe it's c2.

I need to reset the lamp timer on the projectore, I have read the instructions: hold exit button for 5 seconds then press auto, but nothing seems to happen, as a matter of fact the power button won't even...

unplugg it, plug it back in, turn it on, wait until the message comes up about the lamp hours, press the exit button for 5+ seconds, press the auto button to get it to zero, wait for the display to disappear. if you don't even get a display, it should already be reset. if the buttons don't work at all, there might be a problem with the button panel or an obstruction underneath.

Sanyo PLV 70 - Power Won't Turn On

it could that the plastic stem on the inside of the lamp cover on the underside of the projector may have snapped off. if it has you'll have to wedge something onto the cross shaped hole, to keep button inside the hole pressed in, in order for the projector to turn on

Same problem as below.

I have the same projector, and had the SAME problem.
After unplugging and taking on a trip it didn't just lit up for 2 secs, and then shut off....

LEAVE it plugged in for as long as it takes for the light to stop blinking, and then it should start up on its own, or if you press the on/standby buton.
Be patient, hope this works for you too!

I had exactly this problem. After plugging and unplugging it multiple times over several weeks (even plugging it in quickly after it was unplugged but with the green light still flashing as suggested here) all to no avail, it just started working on its own one day. It worked for a few weeks and then the problem re-appeared.

InFocus tech support recommended:
1. Check whether the lamp door is securely closed.
2. Check the color of the LED and the number of time it blinks. (For me, a very fast almost flickering flash)
3. Does the fan operate? (My fan would go on when plugged in)
4. Remove the lamp module, shake it gently and reseat the lamp module.

For me, these steps did not work. InFocus then recommended that I send it to ProjectorDoctor, and it was diagnosed with a bad power supply. $395, but it is fully functional again. Good luck.........

Sony VPL-CX4 projector locked up

keypad buttons probably need a good service.
you say you pushed power key twice
did you leave a small pause between each push
get a tech to checkout underneath keypad buttons to make sure that the contacts are clean.
