Question about InFocus Replacement Lamp Projector Lamp For X1 Projector&Screenplay 4800 [ SP-LAMP-009

2 Answers

Lamp resistance and voltage

The Infocus X1 projector gives an indication that the "lamp is not firing after 5 attempts". Before I spend the money on a new lamp, can I check the Ohms of the lamp (I get infinite ohms) or can I check the voltage to the lamp (approx. 129VAC at the connector) to confirm that it is the lamp? It is alot of money to buy the lamp if the unit is at fault. In other words, is there a way I can confirm it is a lamp fault, or, could it just be the projector itself?
Thanks, Mike

1. Projector lamps use customized ballasts that ignite the lamp by charging it with a higher voltage in the ignition phase and then dropping down to a lower running voltage once the circuit is created.

2. Projector lamps CANNOT be tested with an AMP or OHM meter. Projector lamps function by igniting ultra-high pressurized mercury vapor across an ARC tube. At the point where the mercury vapor resides there is no conductive electrical material and therefore testing a projector lamp with an AMP or OHM will not work.

Projector lamps can be tested using automotive HID(xenon) ballast although it won't tell you much because even if it lights up it doesn't mean that projector is capable to ignite it also. Old lamps require much higher voltage to ignite and draws more current.

My InFocus SP5000 projector does not power up instead the power button flickers to the beat of a rapid ticking sound which is coming from the speaker on the projector. The lamp does not illuminate nor does...


Before I changed a lamp (expensive) I would try these techniques:
Clean the fan filter under the unit. It is little porous pad under a vent. Vacuum it or Wash it, let it dry THOROUGH:LY replace it with a factory filter, or make a new one out of garden variety air conditioner filter material. Reseat the filter and the cover.
Plug in power cord.
Restart projector. Hold down "on" button and see if it lamps up. If not, press "off" button and attempt to restart. It might have gone into a thermal shut down mode due to a clogged fan filter. I do a/v presentations and have encountered these issues on the road and I always try this simple fix first. I also always carry a spare projector.

Projector won't turn on


make sure the lamp door is engaging the safety switch. make sure the colorwheel spins also, it the colorwheel doesn't spin up the projector won't start.if thats not the problem you need to check the resistance on the thermal switch which is on top of the lamp housing. it should be infinite. if thats not it it could be the power supply or the main board.

Lamp burned out on X1 infocus projector, Replaced lamp, new lamp stopped working in about 5 hours, got another new lamp and it does not light at all. Still blinking 3 red blinks(saying the bulb is bad)


make sure the colorwheel is spinning. if it is not, replace it. also, blow the dust out of it with canned air. excessive dust kills lamps quickly. you'll also need to reset the lamp timer. are you using an sp-lamp-009? the sp-lamp-018 looks exactly like it, but is used in th x1a and x2. the x1 only uses the sp-lamp-009. if all else fails, replace the power supply.

Smps problem


no high voltage to the lamp? replace the power supply/ballast board. were you trying to test the voltage with the door open? you won't get any if you don't trigger the door switch. safety measure.

Infocus x1a shuts down after 5 minutes


3 red flashing is a lamp error, not the fans. the lamp has a problem striking. make sure it's pushed in and plugged in all the way. if the lamp is not that old, the power supply needs replacing.

INfocus X1 does nothing after bulb replacement


first off, make sur you have the right lamp (sp-lamp-009, 2 white wires. not the sp-lamp-018, one white, one red. the wires are in different locations in the plug). if you don't hear the colorwheel whirring, that'd be the next step. however, you cannot buy just the colorwheel. infocus does not sell individual parts of the optical engine. but that wouldn't matter, seeing as how they don't sell the engine anymore. also make sure the lamp door is completely closed. there is a peg on it that activates a switch to let the projector know it's closed. if you remove the lamp and use a flat-head screwdriver to activate that switch, turn on the projector. look inside the lamp housing and see if the colorwheel spins. if not, i think you need a new projector. if it does, check the fans. they can be replaced.
