The capacitor that is blown wouldnot be a 150V but a 450V. Dannol, I think you should really double check that as you most probably could be wrong or it most probably is a typo error.

The correct capacitor is a 104K450 NIS T83. 100nf (0.1uf), 10% tolerance and 450V rad polyester type.

When my projector started doing that, it finally blew altogether. After I opened it, I found it was a blown capacitor on the mainboard. I was able to fix it once but used the wrong capacitor. If you have any soldering skills, you can open the projector and determine if it is a blown capacitor. If it is, the little red square capacitor is a 0.1mF +/- 10% tolerance, 150V capacitor. Hope that helps.

InFocus IN72 shuts off after 20 min.


internal error. if the lamp looks ok and it doesn't have many hours on it, it might be the power supply. the capacitors dry out and do not supply sufficient voltage. the in72s do have that problem.

Replacement or buying a new one?.


Hi, this seems to be lamp only, go the menu setup and press service info : then you get the lamp hours used if it is more then 1500 hrs you must change the lamp if less, try cleaning filter then reset the lamp again. if problem persist. lamp has to be changed.

Optoma HD65 bulb only 108 hrs old having difficulty starting up


Use the warranty! since you anly had it for 8 weeks, and the waaranty last for one year, go back with it and get it repaired or get a new bulb. A buld last at least 2500 hours, in eco mode it last for over 3000 hours.

Good luck to you

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.

IN72 Projector problem


My understanding when we purchased our IN72 2 years ago is that there wasn't any additional benefit for Cable box using HDMI since the IN72 does not transmit audio so using component cables for cable was optimized enough. We have our DVD player connected via the HDMI only. Possibly the transmission from cable box through an HDMI is not compatible audio is confusing it? hard to say. Cable HD channels look awesome thru the compenent cables, the max for IN72 is 480i anyway.

We've got 35 ft cables for all 3 hdmi, compenent, and that vcr one too and it's worked great.

Infocus IN72 Projector. NO POWER OR NOT POWERING UP


This model projector is very sensitive to internal heat. I f by some reason the projector was abruptly powered down without the use of its normal procedure, in other words, unpluging cord from wall while on or power outage in premises, then the heat remains trapped and the sensors overheat and subsequently shuts down the unit. Now, although, once the sensors cool down it should reinstate operation some sensors become permanently damaged due to the extreme heat. In this case without having more facts, i believe it is the cause. I recommend a free check up to your nearest shop, most shops will offer free check ups.

Infocus IN72 powers up but no image, replaced the bulb but still no image...


Hi there

This is most probably a Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) problem.

Make 100% sure that this unit is out of warranty because InFocus Projectors come out standard with a 2 year warranty.
