InFocus LP280 problem

I've been using our InFocus LP280 projector about 10-15 times per year for the past 3 years (about an hour each time).  Today, out of the blue, the colors started going wonky - in and out-- the photo would turn to blues and greens and then back to normal, and all of a sudden a bright yellow spot appeared in the middle of the projection.  Within a minute, the spot turned to bright red.  I turned the projector off.
I have tried to find support on InFocus' website, but to no avail.  Did my lamp burn out, or is this simething more serious?

Hi there

I'm afraid this might be a faulty Mainboard.

Your lamp will never make the Projector show funny stuff on the image.

Must warn you that a new Mainbaord is quite expensive

InFocus LP280 turns on then shortly turns itself off. Will not stay on.

There are 3 things that you should check.
1. The lamp
2. The firmware version. (the last is the "1.26E")
3. The power supply (may exibit oxidation in the ECA main board conector). And you need a technician to clean it.

sounds like the colorwheel. the bearings are starting to go on it due to excessive dust and heat. since it's a motor, it's bound to wear out eventually. it will need to be replaced. you could buy the part and do it yourself or send it in for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good and they're an infocus service center.
the lamps should be good for 2000 hours. if you use it that much per year, three lamps is normal. but it's best to keep the projector clean and free of dust to extend the life of the lamps. dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. heat will kill the lamp and possibly overheat other circuits and components. use canned air to blow it out.

Infocus LP280 projector will shutdown itself

The Lamp cooling fan is not working or the fan speed control chip/circuit has failed. Do not run the projector until it is repaired as this condition rapidly destroys the lamp!! If the cause of the problem is simply the fan itself. It can quite easily be acquired and replaced by someone who is electro-mechanically savvy.

If the problem is on the main board (also very possible) it is substantially more difficult to repair and should only be done by someone who is an order of magnitude above just electro-mechanically savvy.
Also if the problem is in fact the main board an authorized service center would just replace it!

You may be hearing the color wheel turning. Make sure the lamp is installed correctly and lamp access door/plate is properly closed.

Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.
