20 Most Recent InFocus ScreenPlay 61" Rear Projection HDTV Questions & Answers


First thing to do is unplug set for a while and plug back to see if issue cures with a reboot.

General info:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.

Did you find anything out about this? I have the same problem, just replaced original bulb less than two weeks ago and now have big black spot on screen.

If you read the manual the 5 blinks indicates that the bulb needs to be replaced.

Yes, you have to find and remove the burnt lens. After several hours searching for the lens and by taking apart the tv, I finally found this.

Wish I had found it before, would have saved me a TON of time. It shows you where the lens is.

Remove the little plastic lens and throw it away. There is no replacement available anyway. Reassemble the tv and it should work fine. Mine has been good for quite a while now.

Hi :-)

The round blotch your seeing on the screen is the melting of an acrylic lens inside the light engine. Its a design flaw which unfortunately Infocus will not stand behind. To fix this problem requires opening the light engine and putting an equivalent lens in place. This task is very involved, but this problem is repairable and you need a glass smith to cut the right size lens from the original.

I'm having the same problem, I called tech support and they told me to hold the reset button for a minute and then try again, I have a universal remote so it doesn't have a reset button, :( So frustrated, any solutions please?

Thats actually a RCA Chassis Do you have troubleshooting experience such as testing voltage supplies? If so let me know and I will assist you with t-shooting the Supply and Run circuits so you can determine if its a power issue from the AC IN board or a defective DM3 unit.Respond to this same post for assistance.

Its an acrylic condensing lens inside the light engine that has melted/warped. You have to pullout the entire light engine then disassemble the optical light tunnel to get too the lens. Then you need a lens-smith to cut a new lens because Infocus won't stand behind this design flaw. Its really a shame on Infocus!
