Default Parts for LP 500

Thanks Childsid. Bought six LP 500s of those three are now working. Have penty of parts, figure they all have power supply issues. One is pre 2002 and the other two are 2002 - year of manufacture.

Plenty of parts, any-one aware of the issues with the power supplies. Any way of fixing them?

Been told Osram manufacture a lamp that would suite. Osram P-VIP 300/1.3 E21.8 - 300 watt unit and may be excessive for the power supply? They also have a 250 watt version, that might also do. Quoted $240 for a the 300w unit via a chinese company, what a cheek.


Thanks Childsid for the lamp manufacture, try Japan, never know, some Scottish wit (feel free prefix "t") might sway them to hand over the goods.

Does the firmware not require additional software that must be pre-loaded before the firmware can be loaded into the pj?

Sort out a we addy for public use. Ywh does have my address and could pass on to your-self (Childsid).

Hi Jason,
you download software to change firmware in LP500/530. Use PC cable to upload into projector. Takes 5 minutes. YWH best place for lamps.
Power supplies can be repaired. Check MBATES on forum.

Boxlight CD-750m, IBM ILV200, Infocus LP-500, Infocus LP-510, Infocus LP-520, Infocus LP-530, Infocus LP-5300, Infocus LP-530D, Infocus LS-110, Toshiba TDP-S3,Toshiba TDP-T3.

Hi Jason,
I have found through recent experience DO NOT UPGRADE THE SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE! Reason is that the older versions like 3.2 will support 1080i resolution in HD using an HDMI adapter without having to buy & use the Infocus HW-ECM enhanced connectivity module they sell.
I flashed/upgraded the firmware to version 4.7 (newest version) on several LP530 & LP500 units that I could previosly get 1080i HD without the ECM in the LP530s and now I cannot get 1080i with or without the ECM. Something in their latest flashes screwed up the HD signal reception.
I have found these software versions to work to so far for 1080i using an M1-DA to HDMI adapter:
LP500,Not tested yet
LP530, software version 31324624xxxx which is version 3.2(second set of 2 digits)
The following go to 720p with or without the ECM on the LP530:
V4.3, V3.5,2.0,
So the very best version so far is the 3.2 for the LP530.

I have contacted Infocus Tech support & they sent me to projectordoctor.com who does their warranty & repair work to get the 3.2 version to download. I wrote to PD & have not heard back yet. I still need to test the LP500 projectors to see which versions get 1080i without using the ECM.

Jason, I have working power supplies if you need some send me an email to PRMHELP@EARTHLINK.NET
Good Luck,
Jim

Default Lamps

found a place in London claiming to sell LP500 lamp C/W module for 139.99. Internet so as yet no actual proof.

Had a lamp the power supplies. How can a 3.4I rated unit supply a 270w 75vdc burner? Some are rated at 3.6I.

HDMI issue, just use component, not that bothered about HD when waching via SVGA.

Mbates is claiming YWHs lamps and LP500 wont mix - resu;t is a blown power supply. True?

Hi Jason,
No, I have not received an email back from you yet regarding power supplies. Did you get my email with pictures and offer to trade power supplies? I still have about 15 working ones for LP500/LP530.
You ask:Ok I have more power supplies, any pointers, not much to them, but I'm lazy.
Do you mean working power supplies or broken? I do not understand the question. Any how PM me at PRMHELP@EARTHLINK.net
Thanks,
Jim
PS Lamps from YWH work great. That post from Mike Bates was old & was before we found correct lamp.

Default Broken power supplies. Tried a LP530. not bad for $200.00

All the power supplies are faulty. have sent a E-mail, check the sent box and re-send. Been testing a LP530, great picture consider teh wall paper, cost next to nothing. Do find once about a hour passes that horizontal lines appear, resolution issue, or dirty color wheel?

Back to the lamps, gonna try the UK source and see if they can supply lamp no module only, teh web-site does mention they can do this. Let you all know, need teh brigthest lamp possible, hence why I'm hanging back from YWH. Surely they could find a supplier, these lamps cost cents to make. not that I'm against profit, we all have to make a living.

Default LP 530 Error Codes

I have an LP 530 that after about 20 hours of perfect images (supposed to be about 130 hours old light bulb) all of a sudden went dark.

When powered up again, the light blinks green, then the color wheel and the fan go on, and after 30 seconds or so the light blinks orange, and stays like that until I pull the plug.

As far I understand from the manual a burned up lamp gernerates a sequence of three red pulses that keeps repeating. A solid orange indicates a projector in pause.

Does anyone know what it means? It may be the light bulb, but I would prefer not to buy a new one if not needed.

Thanks for any hint.

Default Infocus LP500

I've searched high and low for replacement bulbs for this model (InFocus LP500). Is there anywhere to locate JUST the bulbs?

Thanks in advance.
