Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 Multimedia Projector
I also own an InFocus SP4805 that is about 3 years old. The bulb exploded the other night and I replaced it just fine. However I suspected the main fan was not working and checked by removing the back cover. The smaller fan is working.
Since repair shops are $200+ to fix the problem, was anyone ever successful in replacing this fan and getting things to work?
The fans in these models do not have a speed sensor wire to let the main board know to turn off the lamp to not risk overheating. so if the fan goes, the lamp remains on. however, if the lamp exploded, check the vents for dust. there is a temp sensor that will shut down the projector if it gets too hot. if the vents are clogged, blow the dust out of the projector with canned air. the dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. easiest way to repair the fan w/o buying a part: splice the fan wires together. they can share voltage. if the 80mm fan does not work at all after that, replace the fan (pn: 526-0192-xx).

Chances are the fan is alright and it's just the Mos-Fet fan driver chip that failed. Or the failed driver chip allowed the over heated lamp failure in which case the fan may be damaged as well. I have repaired dozens and dozens of these and 90% of the time it is the fan driver chip that failed which led to the rest of the problems.
$200 is too much to pay ;) The repair is usually less than $15 in parts and takes about an hour to complete!
That's the worst case scenario !
