Take the cover off of the projector. Check the plug where the lamp plugs into. This can become unseated and not allow the projector lamp to strike. The clicking you are hearing is most likely electrical arcing within that connector. Reseat the connector and you should be good to go. While you are at it remove all of the dust buildup if any. Good luck!

My projector has only just over 200 hours and is now showing a replace lamp message. The hours have also been reset???


The lamp hours might have not been properly reset.

1. Press the "POWER" button so that the projector projects the picture on the wall (projection screen)
2. Press the "MENU" button to show the "MAIN MENU"
Use buttons "F" or "G" and select "OPTION"
3. Confirm this by pressing "ENTER" so that "OPTION" is shown
Using buttons "5 / 6", select "LAMP RUNTIME" (lamp operation counter)
4. Select and press the "ENTER" button for at least 3 seconds
5. The "LAMP RUNTIME" (lamp operation counter) will change to "TIME RESET[POWER OFF]"
6. Turn the device off by pressing "POWER" and unplug the power cord.

Need to reset the lamp timer on a Sonya POA-LMP24 projector


Attach the power cord to the projector and plug it into an electrical outlet. Turn the projector on and allow it to initialize.
Press the "Menu" button on the top of the projector. Use the left and right arrow buttons to move the red box pointer to the "Settings" icon.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to move the red box pointer to the "Lamp Counter" icon. Press the "Select" button.
A pop-up window will appear displaying the number of hours accumulated on the lamp. Below where the hours are displayed is the option to reset the counter. Select the "Reset" option and then select "Yes" to confirm. This will reset the lamp hours counter to zero and reset the indicator light.

LP540 Projector Lamp Does Not come on> it has an error message; "Lamp didn't Strike". Does that mean the Lamp/Bulb is bad?


Hi,
It's most likely the lamp is bad or the part that starts the lamp called a ballast is bad. The LP540 model has an issue with the ballast burning out. The ballast is a part that starts or strikes the lamp. The only sure way to test is to try starting it with a known good lamp.
You can check for signs of a bad lamp. Think about how long you've had your projector & estimate the total hours on your lamp. If it's over 500 it very well could be the lamp as they fail at any time. Remove the lamp cover door & pull out the lamp to visually inspect it. Look in good light & use a magnifier if available too check for any cracks or chips in the small bulb & look to see if the round part of the small bulb is covered with a lot of white or if it's not round anymore. If it's very white it means it has a lot of hours on it. If there's any loose glass inside (check by turning the lamp cage in different directions) then the lamp is bad. If it's nice & clear or has only a small white spot it's probably a good lamp.
I repair almost all Infocus models if you need a quote.
Thanks & good luck,
Jim

there isn't one. you need to see the menu. but what color is the led and is it blinking?
green- all is well
red blinking:
1 time- lamp not striking after 5x.
2 times- lamp has more than 3000 hrs. replace lamp.
3 times- lamp failure. replace lamp.
4 times- fan failure. shuts down.
5 times- undiagnosed error. possibly ballast or colorwheel.

if the colorwheel won't spin, the lamp won't light. when you turn on the projector, do you hear a high-pitched whir? if not, the colorwheel needs replacing.

LP 530 Lamp does not power on


Did you cancell the bulb fault status in the main menu ie bulb hours when you changed your bulbs if not try this turn unit on and see if it works it may do.

To reset the lamp hours counter press and hold down the Volume minus button - , then press the source button whilst still holding down the volume button for 5 seconds .

If this works you can then verify that the lamp counter was reset by viewing the counter in the status window in the OSM

hope this helps... Regards Vortash
