Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 7200 Multimedia Projector

FAST BLINKING GREEN & WON'T POWER ON

Just as I went to my theater room to verify the type of flashing LED I had (fast green blink, about 5 blinks per sec.), I can't believe I got the thing to power up.

I had tried on at least 4 occasions to reset my 7200 by unplugging and waiting even as long as 3 hours. Finally about a week ago, I just left it unplugged, and tonight upon finding this bulletin board, I figured I would try again since I was down there.

After plugging the power cord into the back and seeing the fast blinking green, I tried to press the power button, and nothing happened, so then I unplugged the power cord again, and noticed that the fast flashing green led still blinked a few times even after the power cord was disengaged. So, like double-dutch, I plugged the power back in real fast trying to keep with the rhythm of the fast blinking green, and quickly hit the power button, and to my surprise.. the unit made that "oh so marvelous "BING" (power-on) sound.

I wish I knew what caused my unit to go into this LOCK mode in the first place, (It's as if it never really shut down properly), and what I actually did to wake it back up.

Any Ideas guys?

    I have the same problem on a 4 yr old projector. The power button is fast flashing and unplugging and waiting has not solved the problem. I am not able to get any response from the unit bypushing the power button, holding the power button or unplugging. As soon as it is plugged in, the power button starts fast flashing.

I had exactly this problem. After plugging and unplugging it multiple times over several weeks (even plugging it in quickly after it was unplugged but with the green light still flashing as suggested here) all to no avail, it just started working on its own one day. It worked for a few weeks and then the problem re-appeared.

InFocus tech support recommended:
1. Check whether the lamp door is securely closed.
2. Check the color of the LED and the number of time it blinks. (For me, a very fast almost flickering flash)
3. Does the fan operate? (My fan would go on when plugged in)
4. Remove the lamp module, shake it gently and reseat the lamp module.

For me, these steps did not work. InFocus then recommended that I send it to ProjectorDoctor http://online.projectordoctor.com/, and it was diagnosed with a bad power supply. $395, but it is fully functional again. Good luck.........

Why does my Sanyo PLC-XU51 projector power light blink red?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.

Hello, my Mitsubishi XD28U doesnt turn on, it keeps blinking Red and green (in the power led) and ambar in the status. What might that be?


This means that an abnormal condition is present in the machine.
Contact mitsubishi.

if it were just the red and green blinking on the power, then that is the lamp cover not on fully.

anyway check the lamp cover is fuuly in, and check the filter cover and filter

Projector screen turns off after 10-20 seconds


Is the projector receiving a source signal? if not it will power itself down after whatever time you have it set to do so when no signal is present.
Just an idea?

Optoma Projector power LED is blinking green,funs are not working, lamp not function, how can i solve this problem


i'd say power supply issue, but the led is blinking green. this means that it thinks it's in warmup/standby mode. but if nothing's running, the main board might be bad and needs to be replaced.

Wont light up


the colorwheel needs replacing. if the colorwheel won't spin, the lamp won't light. if you hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel works, which means there is a power supply issue. there is a fix for that, but you have to be good at soldering. if you are give it a try: http://www.infocus.com/service/asc/communications/tech_notes/2006/09/tn495g.pdf

I turn on the 4805,green led blinks & bulb does not come on?


After a few minuets does the green blinking light turn to a red blinking light?

If so the problem is the lamp did not strike.Either the lamp has failed (most likely) or there is a problem with the power supply (less likely)
