Question about InFocus SOFTCASE, LP425Z Multimedia Projector
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"
