    i have the above projector, and seem to have a problem. i bought this from a friend and ive only used it 4 times as its not fixed to a ceiling and i have 2 drag out the ironing board 2 set it up. today i went to use it and for some strange reason its all out of focus ,and i can not seem to alter the focus by any means. i can turn the large part of the lense to alter the size but thats about it . i know in the past ive managed the focus...but i cant do it now. also the projector seems to take a while 2 fire up and the lamp light tends to give a warning flash!also how do i tell how many hours have been used on this projector. help :lease:

    The focus ring will not have anything to do with lamp life.
    You may have to be a bit firm with it if it is stuck at one end of its travel.
