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.

There are colour flashes when i watch black and white films on my infocus projector.Usaualy if i look a way from the screen for a second or as if i'm blinking


Hello,
By any chance is your source PAL?
What you are describing is caused by a slower frame rate ie. PAL accompanied by the natural persistence of the human eye. If you reduce the brightness level or turn a light on you will be able to reduce these artifacts.

You would hate watching TV in Europe ;)

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.
