I spoke with InFocus technical support and they informed me that the Optical Engine needs to be completely replaced to the tune of $1,224. Not a very good solution, unless you are under warrenty, but that's it.

Have you tried another lamp? Sometimes thats your problem, but I've seen a several occasions that the a defective power supply causes this symptom. Do you see an image flicker before the projector shutsdown? I do have some spare parts for this projector.
I'm on Ebay - gtitubro if you want to contact me through there.
if the colorwheel stopped spinning, the projector would shut off. take the lamp out and spin the colorwheel (with a pencil eraser) to the clear section and look at the square on the other side. if it's not a complete square or something is inside the square, your light tunnel is collapsing and needs replacement (also called an integrator rod).
A tinted image (whether green or another color) is almost always a symptom of a bad or damaged cable - or a loos cable connection. In your case, you'll likely need a new M1 to VGA cable (Part# SP-DVI-A-R).
Assuming that you've made sure that the cable connections are solid at both ends, there is a simple test to verify that this is a cable issue and not a costly projector issue. While the image is tinted green, open the menu. If the menu colors appear fine while the rest of the image is still tinted green it's the cable.
We have had similar issue w/ multiple LP70+ projectors. The units get to be 1-2 years old and suddenly the right vertical edge of the display is distorted. There is usually a shadowed vertical bar that clouds about 3-5% of the horizontal space from the right edge.
What's the cause?
