Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 7200 Multimedia Projector
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 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.........
