Infocus projector won't turn on

I recently bought home with projector suspended from 17ft ceiling. It projects onto second floor media room. I cannot reach it without making arrangements for a very tall ladder. I used it on Saturday and don't remember if I turned it off. I can't read the model number but know it is an infocus. The unit's red led flashes three times intermittently. I cut power at the electrical box but it continues to go back to flashing when I put power back on. Will I need to somehow get my hands on the projector? Previous owners have not had problems and cannot even give me a model number. What should I do?

Noticed a yellow hue in the centre of the image projected by BOTH of my second-hand Sony VPL PX40's.


Bit of a common problem with Sony projectors of the era that they often had problems with fading and/or cracking of one or more the LCD panels - especially the blue ones for some reason, leading to the type of problem you are experiencing. No point in swapping components either as they will both have similar faults - although replacing an LCD in a video projector is almost impossible without the manufacturers jigs to mechanically align them afterwards anyway...

Image is upside down on the screen


Alot of projectors (being all projectors that are designed to be hung from a roof) have an image flip function. This is because when you install a projector in a roof you have to flip the projector upside down so the projector doesn't have to be pointed down and doesn't cause any problems with keystoning.
If you have just bought a new projector and installed it in the roof or perhaps bought it second hand and are projecting from the floor (when the previous owner may have had it in the roof), you will need to go through the menu screen until you find this setting. I don't know exactly what Epson call this function but it should be in there somewhere. If you have it on the floor you want image flip off, if you have it in the roof you want vertical image flip on, horizontal image flip is for when your projecting onto a special screen surface from behind the screen.

I work at an elementary school and the multimedia projectors are hung from the ceiling (a suspended ceiling) in a wooden tray and hanging by chains. Is this a wise choice?


First suggestion is checking to make sure that the tray/chains are secure - that it's not going to fail at at a point of connection either at the ceiling or point where the chains fasten to the tray. The tray must be strong enough for the weight of the projector (most InFocus classroom projectors are not that bulky and heavy).
Hanging anything with weight from the suspension ceiling braces is not recommended. If possible, having the wire/chain continue thru the ceiling panel (a small inconspicuous hole can be made through the panel) up to actual ceiling joists or whatever material the ceiling system itself is fastened to is best & the most secure. I've used steel aircraft cable (available at any Home Depot or hardware store) in place of chain, partly because it only requires a small pencil-sized hole thru the ceiling panel, hardly noticeable.

Most hanging fixtures (theatrical lights, projectors, etc.) have a secondary/backup safety cable or strap system should the main fasteners fail. In this case, if the tray and ceiling connection is secure, a safety strap holding the projector onto the tray so it's not sitting up there loose or able to be knocked out at all should be used. This also will help keep the projector's aim aligned to your screen should something bump the tray, you won't have to readjust it. (See this link attached for an example of a strap securing a projector).
(In all cases, if you have a building or school district maintenance administrator or someone who's job description requires them to be aware of state or district safety regulations/OHSA rules, they should be consulted to make sure you're following any safety issues that may apply specific to your classroom/student needs.)

The filters are starting to show their age. This is a normal occurance for projectors and is the result of heat. The filters and/or the mirrors might need to be changed.

Menu


Hi paulveldt

Very easy ! Simply go into the menu and look for the subfolder that will either read Mirror or Flip Image. Scroll down to it and press left or right until the image is back to normal.

A mountable Projector can project flat fronted ( on a table ) upside down ( on the ceiling ) rear ( from behind - on a rear projection screen ) and upside down from behind ( from the ceiling onto a rear projection screen )

This should do the trick !

Thanks for using Fixya !

Benq 6110 - mounting projector onto ceiling


You need to navigate to the 'advance' menu and under the 'mirror' setting select 'ceiling front' or 'ceiling rear' depending on whether you are front or rear projecting. It should all be on page 29 of the manual.

Hope this helps

Matt.
