Hi biga63

I trust that you used the normal Video ( Composite ) Cable while viewing movies ?

Have you tried using another Composite cable ?

When using the S-Video - press the Source button on either your remote or Projector - untill you get to S-video.

If it still doesn't respond I'm afraid your Mainboard has a fault on it and will have to be repaired by a technician.

I have a Keystone K75. The film will not stay in a loop after going through projector so it goes through too fast and you cannot watch the movie. Any ideas of what is wrong?


When threading the projector you must have a loop of film before and after the film gate (the part that swings open). You can also try turning the projector on with no film in it and make sure both upper and lower sprockets are turning. If this is a new problem you might have a broken belt or gear inside. Take it to a camera repair shop and they can tell you more.

I have a problem with the picture on my Infocus IN1501. It has small squares on it and I see every pixel. How do I remove this?


Generally the screen is full of pixels, and thats a good thing.
It's a problem when you see the pixels that should be off, and don't see them when they should be visible.

So I presume that your pixel problem may be the first type where they appear when they should be hidden.

Now it would be good to know if the bad pixels are all one colour, or if you have chromatic pixelation problems.

Monochrome pixel problems are better than chromatic pixel problems. But alas all pixel problems come back to the DMD or the colour wheel.

Either way your machine is basically compost material for the garbage shredder, unless you want to pay big money to replace the faulty bits.

Ask the local serviceman or servicewoman to give you a quote to look inside the unit and see where the pixels have gone astray.

Dark horizontal bands appear on projection


Your matrix is failing. If the unit is under warranty, send it back.

The matrix is the bit that allows light to come through of each colour. If its failing one colour won't get through. If the circuitry is failing, more than one colour wont get through.

There are colour flashes when i watch black and white films on my infocus projector.Usaualy if i look a way from the screen for a second or as if i'm blinking


Hello,
By any chance is your source PAL?
What you are describing is caused by a slower frame rate ie. PAL accompanied by the natural persistence of the human eye. If you reduce the brightness level or turn a light on you will be able to reduce these artifacts.

You would hate watching TV in Europe ;)

The left side of the screen is blueish?


The blue or yellow haze problem in this projector is because of two factors. 1) Dust buildup inside the optics and 2) Fading colour filters used in the internal optical process.

Inside the projector the white light from the lamp is split into three distinct colours of red, green and blue. Each colour illuminates their own monochrome LCD. Those LCDs are mounted on a prism that combines the separate images and displays the result you see via the lens.

The optical process to split the light up inside the projector is fairly complex and involves many light filters and mirrors to direct the light to the appropriate lcds. Those filters and lenses accumulate dust and also fade over time due to heat and other environmental factors.

I know that sharp sells replacement filters at $100 a piece. I do not know if Hitachi sells replacements.

To remove the dust and change filters you have to take apart the projector in a fairly complex way. I do not suggest that the average user do this. Good luck!

When trying to watch a film off the computer through the projector the colour red comes out green on the projector.


check your cable and use a different laptop or desktop to eliminate the projector. always do a factory reset.
