Question about InFocus LP70+ Multimedia Projector

5 Answers

LP70+ Projecting a streak down the left side of image which makes about a 1/4 inch unreadable. Perhaps the lenses are out of alignment? It is not the lamphouse - I've tried two brand new ones. The unit is almost 3 years old. Fixable at a reasonable price or replace? Any suggestions as to where to send for repair, if that is the route to go? Please advise asap. Thanks. Joanne

    my zip is 19044 IF the LP70+ which is projecting a bar down the left side of image might just be a matter of internal lens misalignment or something other than lamphouse, which I've tried replacing, to no avail. Need name of some local repair shops in Horsham, PA area. OR, is it really time for a new replacement projector.

The LCD (this is how DLP projectors work) that the light shines through is failing, if you have the original paper work it will list repair stations throughout the USA, but I suspect the cost of repair will be quite high, $400-600

This is caused by the heat from the lamp. What has happened is that one or more of the light filters has charred a bit. This can be fixed by replacing the light filters and re-aligning/converging the projector. This is not a cheap repair, but should be significantly less than a replacement.

Image is upside down on the screen


Alot of projectors (being all projectors that are designed to be hung from a roof) have an image flip function. This is because when you install a projector in a roof you have to flip the projector upside down so the projector doesn't have to be pointed down and doesn't cause any problems with keystoning.
If you have just bought a new projector and installed it in the roof or perhaps bought it second hand and are projecting from the floor (when the previous owner may have had it in the roof), you will need to go through the menu screen until you find this setting. I don't know exactly what Epson call this function but it should be in there somewhere. If you have it on the floor you want image flip off, if you have it in the roof you want vertical image flip on, horizontal image flip is for when your projecting onto a special screen surface from behind the screen.

You have to open the LP750 and check the alignment of your color lenses. You might be needed to adjust, also check your lamp too.

Colors out of alignment Epson EMP 500


You LCD optical engine is out of alignment. This will require an authorized service center to make the adjustment or even replace the unit if necessary. There are 3rd party companies that offer this service, perhaps in your own town or nearby. You may want to weight the cost of repair to purchasing a newer unit.

InFocus LP70 color problem


try resetting the settings to factory default through the menu. if there's still a problem, take the cover off. if you look from the back of the machine, inside on the bottom left, you'll see the main board attached by a large white plug. use something thin and non-metalic to push the bottom of the board towards the plug to tighten it. now do the same to the other side of the plug. this should solve it. if it doesn't, you need to replace the main board.

Image has bend at top of screen


first reset the setting to factory default. if it persists on a regular image too, either the lens, the tunnel or something else in the optical engine is damaged (from a fall?).

InFocus LP70 Won't display Top 3/4 of screen even with new bulb


if the colorwheel stopped spinning, the projector would shut off. take the lamp out and spin the colorwheel (with a pencil eraser) to the clear section and look at the square on the other side. if it's not a complete square or something is inside the square, your light tunnel is collapsing and needs replacement (also called an integrator rod).

Color alignment is off


i also have the exact same problem. i picked up 3 of these used for my work and kept one at home. I knew one had issues and another had a burned out bulb and so on. I had a repair place to combine the two to make one good one. The repair man said that they had a real hard time keeping the color locked in alignment. It's not a physical alignment, its controlled by the board output and somehow the board can be adjusted. It was vague to me. After about a good couple of years of hard use the one at home is now doing the same. On one hand I want to fix it but I dont even have a plasma so I may go and spend $800-$1000 on a hi def DLP. At that price it won't be the best but it will rock this projector. that would be my advice rather than putting more money into this old model.
