Question about InFocus IN72 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?

i replaced lamp in IN72 about a month ago. it turns on for a ferw seconds and then goes blank and the little light starts flashing red. i have unplugged power and left it for a while and then tried again and it still does same thing

    Projector would shut down after a couple minutes with now fan cool down. Was a suggestion to get a new lamp but didn't want to expose new lamp to these shut downs. Sent it away for warranty work...hear they are waiting for a new tunnel. Sounds like an expensive fix. Maybe there was something else wrong but the tunnel is the part thats needed to complete the repair.

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.

Hello,
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).
