    I have the same problem with mine and I think I'm just going to take it apart and see if it has a fuse thats blown. I've tried everything else and still nothing.

    It would be nice to find a manual that can show me whats inside the projector so I can see where the fuse is located.

    I have 4 InFocus LP-250's and one LP-540 that all have the power issue. One of the 250's failed to come back on after a power failure and the other 3 stopped working at the bulb counter go close to zero. I contacted InFocus but they are useless, it's very frustrating, I now buy Epson.

Yeah i had same problem where the power would not come on. literally nothing, no green light, no power button, nada. I was able to fix it for under $20. I got a soldering iron from a friend, some solder, and a toolbox with a hexascrew or sectascrew or whatever it is that has six (i got mine from radio shack) starpoints. so basically took it apart which was complicated but totally doable. then i took off the top motherboard thingy and then was able to unscrew the power supply board which is about 2 inches squared. taking this off i was able to look around on it and visibly see one of the circuits on the bottom was blown. so i just re-fused it with the soldering iron. it was the first thing ive ever soldered and i was capable of doing it so it cant be that complicated i guess. anyways, that got it working again. didnt break anything to open it so why not give it a shot?

It's most likely the Power Supply in it which is blown...There is 2 Power supplies, one for the lamp and one for the board. The one for the board is always failing on LP240s. You may power it using an external Computer PS (+12V, +5V, +3.3V) and a +16V PS. I did it, and it is working perfecly for 1 year now.

Is there any LED lit or flashing when you press the power button? That can be an indication of a problem with the lamp. If the lamp hours exceed 2000, the lamp will not light until the lamp hour counter is reset. Also if the lamp door is not closed, the lamp will not light. Finally, a defective lamp will cause similar symptoms. There also may be an internal fuse for the projector, but changing it normally requires disassembly of the projector. Another thing to try is to use the power button on the projector's remote if it has one. I worked on a Dell projector that had a faulty power switch but would still turn on with the remote.

There is a source lock and source button I would unlock source lock button and the push source button until you get to your hdmi input you are using. You also may just plug in one input first and once you get the input right play with the multiple hdmis

Color wheel replacement


good times here--take the front and rear bezels off and remove the top cover. remove the power input board and power supply. next remove the metal shield covering the bottom of the projector to expose the main board. next, cut the ribbbon cable as close as you can to the color wheel. remove the color wheel leaving the cut ribbon behind. Now, carefully set the new color wheel in the general area and tape the new cable to the cut cable. Next pull the cut cable out of the main board paying careful attention to which way the cable was plugged in. Now pull the new cable thru and remove the tape and the old cable, plug it in, install the new colorwheel and put your projector back together with the exception of the front and rear, turn it on and make sure the color wheel spins, if it kind of just jumps, it means you plugged the cable in backwards. also when you test to see if it works, make sure the lamp door is shut so the safety switch is pushed in, otherwise the projector won't light.

I WISH TO USE A DVD WITH PROJECTOR


All you need to do is you need to get a dvd player and and the projector and use the rca/composite cables. (RCA cables are the 3 wire cables with a red, yellow, and white connector.) Use the cables and plug them in to both devices matching plug colors and socket colors. Make sure you are plugging the cables into the input on the dvd player and the input on the projector.

How do i connect more compponents to my projector


The projector came with three video cables, and one audio. The first of the video cables is for component (three colors, which are blue, green, red) and is used for HD (hi definition) components. The second is an S-Video cable, which is used for just that, S-Video, which is one step below HD. The last type is composite, which is used for regular input. It has one input, which is yellow.

In order to utilize more than one component, you have to have a switching device. Since it is impractical (for me, anyway) to constantly unplug one video cable on the Cinego and plug in another of a different type, you must ensure that all of your components are of the same type. You may convert somewhat between components using cable adapters, but can only do so when the conversion is one level. The levels, from highest to lowest, are thus: HD, Component, S Video, Composite. You can go from one level to another which is one above or below, but cannot jump two levels.

As one example, if you want to utilize the HD capabilities of the Cinego, and you have HD cable or satellite and also a BlueRay disc player, such as a Playstation 3, you connect your HD cable/satellite and the PS3 each to a switching device, and connect the switching device output to the component input on the Cinego. The switching device, if you buy an automatic one, will detect whether the cable box or PS3 is on, and will transmit that signal to your Cinego. You may have to use an HDMI to Component conversion cable, or your switching device may have the ability to input HDMI but output the Component. The Cinego can only input the Component, as it doesn't have the HDMI input connector. The auto switiching device is about $25 and is available at big box retailers such as WalMart. So are the cables available there.

Optoma ep739 won't power up


The lamp cover has a disconnect that won't allow power while the cover is off. Sometimes the piece of metal gets bent out of place.
Try removing the cover for the lamp, and bending the little piece of metal forward.

It worked for me!!!!
