This Projector was recently intergrated into a new system that runs eveything through a switch plate in the front of the Auditorium. The System allows you to turn on the projector and then select computer or VCR/DVD. It seems to work fine except that the projector will turn itself off after 35-40 minutes...whether its on the computer or VCR/DVD mode. I sat and watched the projector and saw no signs of overheating. I even cleaned the air filters. It has done it each time we have ran it..5 times so far. Any ideas why it would be doing this?
I have the same problem with my projector it sudden turns off, and it has a blue stipe on the bottom of th screen. is this a sign that my blub is bad? or is it the power supply that is damaged?
it can be on for days without any problems and then they come and go..

I think thelamp is running hot and shutting off due to the thermal cut off. So try to cool the system with a forced fan cooling and see if the projecctor runs for more time. Also see if the filters have choked and is not ventillating to the lamp resulting in the heat buildup. I sincerely hope this could be the fault as in cold condition it had worked longer.I hope this helps. Good day
try looking for your thermistor usually located near the wind path its a small block the size of two match heads usually mounted off the main board with two wires this is your 'heat switch' so to say, also check your fans are clean and running there is normally more than one.
Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius.
The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.
I have the same problem with a HT250, red power light on back of projector will not come on. But if you leave the projector plugged in and power switch on it will light after some time and the projector works as normal. Any suggestion please email [email protected]
