Problem with the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector (when recieved) - No red, constant yellow tinge and constant lines.
I ordered the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector from the Dell website just over 2 weeks ago. I connected my Xbox 360 to it and for some reason the image does not show any red at all.
Everything has a terrible yellow/green tinge to it. There is constant
lines jumping up the screen and it is almost unwatchable.
I read the user manual and saw that an s-video connection is better
(I was using the usual AV connection), so I specially ordered one of
these cables to see if this was the problem the whole time. I
received the cables yesterday and tried it out - the exact same problem
occurred. There is absolutely no red and everything has a very strong
terrible yellow tinge. The games are almost unplayable and there are
still jumping lines.

E 74 is a typical XBox 360 error which shows up when there is some technical issue with the game.You need to get your gaming console fix.
I would suggest you to try Complete XBox 360 Repair Guide before sending it to the repair shop because they usually take 2-3 weeks and charge you huge. Now, people cannot spend hundreds of dollars every week on such issues, it is way too expensive.
This Xbox Fix Manual would let you repair your gaming console with the help of diagrams, user friendly instructions and without any outer help. I tried it for my lil brother and we got so relieved because we are saving money and time on this.
It may be the lamp is out. Normally a projector will try & fire the lamp 3-5 times then shut down with a different color light like amber or red. If the lamp doesn't light then it could be the lamp or perhaps the lamp ballast that starts the lamp has failed. A stuck fan also causes similar symptoms. There's 2-4 fans in the projector if one is stuck or bad it will turn off within 5 seconds or so after the lamp lights.
Does your lamp light at all? Are the lights a different color after it shuts down? Answers to these questions help figure out what's wrong though it's impossible to say for sure without looking at it.

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.
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.
