Question about InFocus IN72 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Bulb failures My Infocus 72 projector bulb failed after only 311 hours. I purchased a new bulb and after 20 minutes the projector turned off and I got the red blinking light again. I got the red blinking light after the first failure also. I read that this indicates that a new bulb is needed. I am thinking that something else is wrong. Any suggestions?

    I also Have an INFOCUS IN72 projector that started flickering at 500hrs then shut down. It flashed the red light 3 blinks which I beleive means globe. Purchased new globe and still flickered but not as bad untill 200hrs later on new globe it started flickering worse then shut down again flashing red light 3 blinks!!! Had it looked at by local electronics guy (not infocus specialist) he said possibly a ballast. Help would be much appreciated!!!

I experienced the same thing, only to discover it was the ballast that powers the lamp. I believe INFOCUS repairs for $390.00 per the technician that I spoke with on the phone at INFOCUS.

Projector turns on and works for about 2 minutes, then shuts off


You may have to reset the bulb hour counter. Go thru the setup menus and see if you can do it from there. Infocus projectors make you jump thru the hoop.

New bulb installed and it takes 10 plus minutes to start


Exchange the lamp under warranty...
You've tried almost everything else.
It's not that uncommon to experience "infancy failure" with a brand new lamp.

If the problem persists with the replacements replacement then I would suspect the Lamp power supply (Ballast) is failing.

InFocus IN74 Projector Fault


Hi there.

How many hours had it done? The bulb may have expired and as a safety precaution the projector will not switch on, otherwise the bulb will explode causeing further damage.

Cheers

I can almost guarantee that your bulb is out. We probably have 20-30 projectors of this model in the school and bulb life averages a little over 100 hours even though they advertise 3000 hours. Infocus has been known most for their poor cooling system to the bulb over the years and most owners won't get the life expectancy of the bulb. If you remove the bulb you will find a small restrictive vent screen on the bulb and commonly it will be filled with collected dust. This model really doesn't have any removable/cleanable filtering system installed - again a cheap and poorer design then many other brands. We have decided not to purchase infocus projectors anymore in the district. They were a seller at one time because they were cheap, but because they don't last they weren't really a deal after all. Sometimes though a ballast for a projector will go out and it will be unable to power up a good bulb. I wouldn't consider fixing it because of their overall poorer reliability.  If your looking for a cheap but more reliable brand of projectors I'd steer towards Epson projectors. They tend to have lower costing projectors and bulbs then most and I have seen in person that they last well above their advertised lamp hours in different models. Their are many good brands out there but InFocus is not really one of them - they have under built projectors and poor phone support. 
Hope this helps a little. - Scott

Infocus LP240 Projector


The bulb won't do that. What you're describing sounds like a light tunnel failure.
