Toshiba MT8/Infocus 7200 broken power board

My tosh MT8 (infocus 7200 clone) has a a power fault. When switched on (from fully off) it emits a clicking sound from the power board before eventually coming on.
Now, it refuses to come on at all, just clicking at different speeds.

I've been told its a power board problem, which I'm happy to swap out myself if I could only find a replacement part!?

Toshiba are of absolutely no help with this issue.
Can anyone help?

thanks

    mine did that also, now dead as a doorstop. v.high pitch whine when listen really up close so something on the powerboard likely to be gone - if you managed to find a replacement let me know from where

Infocus screenplay 7200 fan failure with new lamp After powering on, red LED blinks 4 times which means fan failure of the fan that is part of the lamp module. Already returned initial new lamp and got...


Not sure if this helps with the 7200 bu had a 4805 with a failed fan issue. There are two fans inthe unit, one smaller one that cools the color (colour) wheel and the larger one that cools the lamp. This unit had a problem with the larger lamp fan not turning. Unplugged and disassembled the unit to get the fan out and tested the fan using a 9v battery and a couple of wires (best to uplug the fan from the controller board so you are not forcing voltage into the unpowered controller board... that said, I did it hooked up just peeling back the label in the centre of the fan and touching the wires to the solder contacts) The fan worked fine so figured the controller board was the issue, so this wasn't going to be a simple "buy a new fan" issue.

Here is where your mileage may vary...

I decided that it would be OK to just run the fan. Unplugged the fan and powered it from the 9V battery and assembled the unit and powered it up. Found that there was 7v available on the power board at the second pin that was alwasy on when the power switch was on (thats the positive 7 V pin, but measure it with a meter since we are talking about a different projector) and just wired the fan direct to pin 1 and 2 (1 is ground on the 4805, 2 is +7V) and so now whenever the main power is on the fan runs, so after ti cools down I just power off the main power when not in use... or let the fan run if the noise isn't an issue. Crude but effective fix.

FAST BLINKING GREEN & WON'T POWER ON


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 http://online.projectordoctor.com/, and it was diagnosed with a bad power supply. $395, but it is fully functional again. Good luck.........

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 :-)
