I have an Infocus SP4805 that the bulb recently went out in. I received a new bulb replacement for it for Christmas, and anxiously installed it. Once installed, the projector will turn on for no more than 5 or 10 minutes before shutting back off. The light on the top will flash red when turned off.

It worked just fine before the old bulb went out, but now it almost seems as if the cooling fans aren't cooling enough. I'm 99.9% sure that it's turning off due to overheating. The fan's will turn on, but they don't seem to move as much air as they used to.

If anyone has any suggestions or links or anything at all, they would greatly be appreciated as we miss watching TV and movies :( lol

Thanks!!

Try the AVSforums. They used to have a big sticky faq on everything Infocus 4805.
