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?

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.)

How can i flip the screen up side down on the projecter


Go to Menu> Extended> Projection> select Front ( to project from the front of the screen ).Front/Ceiling ( If the projector is mounted upside-down from the ceiling ). Rear ( to project from behind onto a transparent screen ).Rear/Ceiling ( to project from behind when the projector is mounted upside-down from the ceiling ).
Or you can hold down the [A/V Mute] button for about 5 seconds to change the projection setup from Front to Front/ceiling or Rear to Rear/Ceiling.

Infocus IN1 Gaming Projector


Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius. 

The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.
