CPSC and InFocus Corp. Announce Recall of Portable Projectors and Projector Lamps Posing Shock and Fire Hazards

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and InFocus Corp., of Wilsonville, Oregon, are recalling about 1,800 projectors and about 700 replacement lamp modules from the InFocus LP120 Projector, ASK Proxima M1 Projector, and SP-LAMP-013 Replacement Lamp Modules, because the units have improper wiring with inadequate insulation which could degrade over time, posing a shock and fire hazard.

Consumers should stop using these products immediately.

The recalled products were manufactured in China and sold direct phone and Web sales and by office and business equipment stores nationwide from October 2005 through February 2006 for about $1500 for the projectors and $420 for the replacement lamps.

To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves portable projectors designed for use with laptop computers, and a replacement lamp module sold for use with these projectors.

The recalled projector models are InFocus LP120 and ASK Proxima M1 built between October 2005 and January 2006. The model number and serial numbers are written on the bottom of the projectors. They have the following serial numbers:

Model LP120 – AJNV541A0001 through AJNV551A0301
Model M1 – AKUV546A0001 through AKUV547A0268
The recalled replacement lamp module is SP-LAMP-013 built between November 2005 and January 2006. There is no writing on the lamps, but “SP-LAMP-013” is on the label on the box.

Projector and replacement lamp owners should visit the InFocus Web site for instructions on returning the projector and lamp for a free repair.

For more information, contact (877) 398-6086 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.infocus.com/service.
