Your lamp might be ok, but you power supply is dead. If your not seeing any led lights come on when the power cord is plugged in then your power supply is dead. I can fix this for you for less then it cost to send to infocus or to a repair shop. Ebay Id is Gtitubro

SOURCE: Infocus lamp not firing

more then likely the ballast has gone bad and the lamp is not getting the right voltage to fire. Only other thing you can do is remove the lamp the turn the power on and check the voltage at the connector. This will not check the triggering voltage mine you only the lower operating voltage. But since you have replace the bulb with a known good one I'm betting on the ballast is bad.

be sure and reset the lamp hours. Flash the software if you can. These are also notorious for the ballast cable on the inside of the lamp housing backing out when a lamp is removed or replaced. If you have the cover off push the cables back into place and hold them there as you install the lamp. Also look directely at your lamp in the center and move it side to side and up and down. If there are any cracks or frosty looking spots or bubbles in the mirror of the lamp that are visible, then the lamp is probably shot. If all this fails, most likely it is the power supply, or the lamp door has gotten mishapen from heat and the actuator on the lamp door isn't making full contact with the safety swith.

I work at an elementary school and the multimedia projectors are hung from the ceiling (a suspended ceiling) in a wooden tray and hanging by chains. Is this a wise choice?

First suggestion is checking to make sure that the tray/chains are secure - that it's not going to fail at at a point of connection either at the ceiling or point where the chains fasten to the tray. The tray must be strong enough for the weight of the projector (most InFocus classroom projectors are not that bulky and heavy).
Hanging anything with weight from the suspension ceiling braces is not recommended. If possible, having the wire/chain continue thru the ceiling panel (a small inconspicuous hole can be made through the panel) up to actual ceiling joists or whatever material the ceiling system itself is fastened to is best & the most secure. I've used steel aircraft cable (available at any Home Depot or hardware store) in place of chain, partly because it only requires a small pencil-sized hole thru the ceiling panel, hardly noticeable.

Most hanging fixtures (theatrical lights, projectors, etc.) have a secondary/backup safety cable or strap system should the main fasteners fail. In this case, if the tray and ceiling connection is secure, a safety strap holding the projector onto the tray so it's not sitting up there loose or able to be knocked out at all should be used. This also will help keep the projector's aim aligned to your screen should something bump the tray, you won't have to readjust it. (See this link attached for an example of a strap securing a projector).
(In all cases, if you have a building or school district maintenance administrator or someone who's job description requires them to be aware of state or district safety regulations/OHSA rules, they should be consulted to make sure you're following any safety issues that may apply specific to your classroom/student needs.)

The image from the InFocus is upside down. Do not have a users manual. thanx, mike

In the main menu, go to Settings, select System, and uncheck Ceiling (that setting is to allow it to be mounted upside down from a ceiling mount).

Trying to locate a power supply for an In Focus LP250. Exactly what is it and can I install it myself?

I have a power supply for the LP250 for a fraction of the repair depot price. I could walk you through the removal and replacement so that you wouldn't have to ship the entire projector.

The InFocus LP 250 is not working with Windows VISTA Operating System on my PC. Do I need to download drivers for this to work? If so, how can I download the drivers?


Your InFocus projector works with your computer through the VGA or DVI port. You don't need to download a driver.

Check out the manual (How-To Guide) from here:

Hope this helps.
