Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Screen goes blank momentarily

When watching any show on any channel, if there is a flash of bright light or an explosion such as in an action movie. The projector screen goes blank and begins searching for video source, selects video 2 or the cable box source and sets up image and movie or show resumes. It is like I just pressed the video source button. This occurs most every time in an action movie or tv show. What is it and what should I do. PS I do not believe this occurs while watching DVDs

Cover up the infrared remote sensor on the projector. The heat of these colours or something might be messinf with the infrared remote sensor. TRy this and see what happens. It may just be bad contacts. Some projectors just cant handle stuff like this. Some were meant for presentations and presentations only. BUt seriously try covering the remote sensor to see what happens. If it is an older projector the infrared signal detector might be sensitive to bright light or stuff like that.

My hannspree tv screen goes black blank

If the picture shows a picture briefly upon power up then goes off after a few seconds, you have a back light fault. It could have a problem in the 24vdc circuit, failing back light inverter board, or a blown CCFL lamp.

TV shuts off with high color images . Example: explosions,bright lights etc

Normally, the screen control being up a little to high, would cause this problem. If no one has worked on this unit when it started may be a sign of something else, for example, the 200 volt line may be running a little low. Check the brightness and contrast for starters and if that doesn't help, then, the screen control would be my next step. Hope this helps.

Pip

On the front of the TV while it is on, press on the ACTION and POWER buttons at the same time and hold them for about 5 seconds until the screen goes blank and comes up with a diagnostic screen. Once that happens release them and press action again to clear the diagnostic information. Now your TV is se back the way it was brand new so you will have to proram the channels back into memory and apply your color,brightness,hue etc..settungs as those have all gone back to factory as well.
