New Bulb in my In-Focus Lp130 wont light

I have replaced the lamp in my LP130 when the one we only used for about 300 hours sometimes would come on, and sometimes would not. Now the new new lamp will not light at all. I read that it may be a lamp timer, so I reset that also and that did not work. Any hep would be wonderful.
Thank you

The connection that the lamp plugs into backs out of place preventing the connection from being made. you will have to remove the top. with thetop off, install the lamp and look to see if the lamp connection is going into the connector on the lamp housing. if not, you can get a flathead and push the connector into place on the lamp housing and hold it there while pushing the lamp into place. to keep this from happening again I always used to melt the connector to the lamp housing with a soldering iron.

    I have the exact same issue and did the same thing and confirmed that the power cord was seated properly and it still didn't light up. I connected a mutli-meter up to the power supply and when I turned it on, I got power for about a half a second and then it stopped....

I have the same problem with mine, but it could also be the door, there is a micro switch and if this didn't work it also would give you your current outcome.

    If you notice a dim flicker on startup looking down the lens barrel, according to somone else it will be the internal ballast

We have an LP130 and when powered on, there is no ...

this used to be my favorite easy repair. Reset the lamp hrs and you may have to upgrade the firmware. If that fails, try this and your old lamp may still be good. i'm not making any promises,but there could be a simple solution. remove the rear cover. then push the release in the slot on the front cover with a screwdriver (this is opposite the lens side.) remove the cable coming from the top cover to the main board. remove the top. Now, look at the lamp where it connects to the connection at the rear of the lamp housing. Now take the lamp out. Put it back in slowly and watch to see if the male part on the lamp actually makes the full connection to the lamp connection on the housing without pushing the connection backwards. If it does push back, then that's the problem. you can hold the connection on the housing in place while you seat the lamp all the way. I used to melt the connection to the housing with a soldering iron so when you put the lamp in it wouldn't back out again. However, if this doesn't fix it it could be the colorwheel not working. If the colorwheel doesn't spin, the lamp won't light either.

Infocus LP130, Bulb fires then goes out

there is a problem with the power to the front fan from the main board. there are 3 wires going to the fans: one power, one return, and one signal. if the main board reads no signal from the fan's speed, it'll shut down. check the power going to the fans and the signal. you may need to replace the main board.

Projector attempts to light the lamp, but to no avail

the ballast is gone and needs replacing. unfortunately, infocus has no parts for that model.

In-Focus LP-130 and it turns on but the lamp wont fire up, it sounds like the cooling fan goes on and then stops, its a brand new bulb also.. some one said its daughter board that controls the cooling lamp...

the ballast is bad. the fan turns on for the colorwheel, but when the lamp doesn't strike, the fan and colorwheel turn off until it tries again. unfortunately, there are no replacement parts for the lp130.

InFocus LP130 Projector has intermittent power off

go into the menu to find out the lamp hours. it could be the lamp, but if the projector shuts down and not just the lamp, there is either an overheating issue, or a power supply issue.
