Question about InFocus IN72 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Infocus IN72 powers up but no image, replaced the bulb but still no image...

My IN72 is about a year and a half old so it's out of warenty. It powers on but no image is displayed. The projector bulb never fires and I don't see any light in the lens. I can hear the projector trying to fire the bulb but it tries 5 times and it shuts down. The led code indicates bad bulb so I bought a new bulb and replace it but it is still acting the same. HELP!

    Hi Marrie, thanks for the reply. I'm a little embarrassed to admit, but it was the lamp. When I put the lamp in, I didn't close the lamp cover back up before I powered the system back up. I didn't realize that there is a micro switch the protects the lamp from comming on when the cover is off. I replaced the lamp and closed every thing back up and it took off running!



    My original lamp only had 876 hours on it. Infocus advertises the lamp life to be 3000. I'm not happy about my lamp going out so fast. I'm going to e-mail Infocus and complain although I'm sure they won't go anything about it.



    Thanks!

Hi there

This is most probably a Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) problem.

Make 100% sure that this unit is out of warranty because InFocus Projectors come out standard with a 2 year warranty.

Half inch crystal/ solid white vertical line on screen

Adjust the horizontal in the menu then try the overscan adjustment. If the image does not look dim you do not need a lamp.

Infocus IN72 - blinking RED light

firdt off, did you reset the lamp counter? did you clean the dust out of the projector? it may be overheating as well. if the lamp looks ok, you may have just blown the ballast. try projector doctor online.

IN72 Projector problem

My understanding when we purchased our IN72 2 years ago is that there wasn't any additional benefit for Cable box using HDMI since the IN72 does not transmit audio so using component cables for cable was optimized enough. We have our DVD player connected via the HDMI only. Possibly the transmission from cable box through an HDMI is not compatible audio is confusing it? hard to say. Cable HD channels look awesome thru the compenent cables, the max for IN72 is 480i anyway.

We've got 35 ft cables for all 3 hdmi, compenent, and that vcr one too and it's worked great.

Bulb failures

I experienced the same thing, only to discover it was the ballast that powers the lamp. I believe INFOCUS repairs for $390.00 per the technician that I spoke with on the phone at INFOCUS.

Power not working

I have an infocus lp70+ it turns on and displays an image for about 2 seconds even if you push the menu button, then the bulb powers off and it acts like it overheated. It does this when it is clearly not overheating. Please help me, I can be emailed at [email protected]
