Question about InFocus SOFTCASE, LP425Z Multimedia Projector

Problem with INfocus LP425z Colorwheel ?????

I have had this projector for 6 years and have used it less than 50 hours. When you turn on the projector the fan turns on and about 5-10 secs later you hear a whining noise and then the lamp turns on. Two years after purchasing it, it would take a few times of turning it on and off before the whining would start and the lamp would light up. Now (RIGHT BEFORE SUPERBOWL) theres no whining or light. I was told by tech support that the whining is the colour wheel. The lamp should still be good with less than 50 hours used. Is it easy to open and look at the Colour Wheel?

Even if it is the colorwheel, you wouldn't be able to get a replacement. infocus no longer has parts for the lp4xx series.

That unit has a bearing color wheel, if it was not stored proper, it could be sticking. That would explain the power cycling. giving it a bump start if you will. Yes you can open and inspect to see if color wheel "free wheels"

I have an Optima HD 8000 DLP Projector and have had it for a year. The issue I am having is that the projector works find but for only 3-5 minutes and then it turns off and the Lamp Indictor turns on. Any...


hi,
First of all check the lamp hour of projector. just reset the lamp hour and try again.
1. Press the menu button
2. Select system
3. Then select lamp reset
4. Select reset
The lamp hour will be retested.
Try to do this before you projector turns off. it is recommended that do this only after replacing the lamp.


If doesn't work then check the following
Check the lamp cooling fan of your projector . may be its has some problem. its not running at the correct RPM. Do one thing, Remove the fan from the projector. In the fan there will be a specification sticker. Remove the sicker. now you can see a hole in the center. its the bearing part of the fan. put one drop of oil in it. u can use any type of lubricating oil. rotate the fan leafs with finger for some time. after that re-stick the spec sticker. insert the fan in the projector. power ON the projector and watch.
ok

Newer lamp not workering


I don't think that resetting the lamp is the problem if you have had it in there for a few months already. This lamp is rated for 2000 hours. That is abaout 1 year if you use it about 5 or 6 hours a day. If you don't use it that much you should get close to 2 years. There are a variety of factors that will reduce the life of your lamp. Do you let the fan continue to run after the projector is turned off? If not, you will see about half of the regular life. Are the filters clean? You can use a vacuum or rinse out foam filters to clean out the dirt and dust. The lamp needs good air circulation to cool evenly. Are the vents blocked or close to another componant? I'm pretty sure that you just need another lamp. If the lamp was purchased more then 4 months ago, you are probably out of warranty. You can save yourself some money if you buy the bare bulb and replace it in the old cartridge. It looks like the complete lamp module from Sharp runs around 295.00 but the usually have a bare bulb available. We supply a variety of brands fior each projector. You can contact me at 866-470-9877 or go to allprojectorlamps.com. Good luck!

I have purchased 3 new lamps. one lasted 900 hrs.


Your lamp is rated for 3000 hours. Is the fan working to cool the lamp? When you turn off the projector do you allow the fan to continue to run? If not the lamp is not cooling evenly and the lamp will fail. Th filters should be cleaned regularly and the vents be unobstructed.

good day mr david, just clean the air filter of your projector, check all the fans if working... if this problem occur again your lamp ballast is defective.
