Question about InFocus X1 Multimedia Projector

Proector image is dim

The image is dim, but when I replaced the bulb with a good one (bright bulb) it was still dim.

When I tried the bulb in a "good" projector the image was bright but it "flickered".

I updated the "firmware" on the projector, it changed nothing.

Is it the bulb or another component? Is there such a thing as a video card on the projector?

    Image is very dark but not the projector menus. Changing bulb did not change anything. Changing video source did not change anything

I have changed the bulb on my LG projector recently. I found the rotating colour wheel to be full of dust. Upon opening the cavity where the light is redirected and reflected onto the imager, I saw all mirrors also had a layer of dust. I don't think it was so dirty that it affected the brightness of the image, but I cleaned it anyway using an earbud. I cleaned both sides of the color wheel as well. You need to be careful in working with the optics of the projector!

Unfortunately dim image is normally due to a defective lamp assembly. I'd recommend removing the lamp and inspecting its condition. You'll notice black corrosion build up or a bubble is starting to form around the filament of the bulb if it is what's causing the dim image.

You need to remove the cover and check where the lamp light is being attenuated in the optical path from the lamp to the front lens. I would try using a 12volt 50W halogen lamp in place of the real lamp and shine it into the optics system, and see where the brightness starts to go bad.

The projector is not giving a bright picture. The image on the wall is very dim


I you were using the projector in the same room with the same ambient light and if you notice this problem try increasing brightness, if still the brightness is not sufficient then it is time to replace the projector lamp.


If you have moved your projector to a different place, check if the existing light / ambient light in that room is making the image look dull / not so bright. If this is the case, try to reduce the ambient light

You can adjust the brightness through the user menu, under the picture option. You might want to look at your bulb. It might be time to replace the lamp.

Brightness Varying during operation


Inside all projectors is a lamp ballast that runs the lamp. It could be in the early process of failing.
This website will explain the whole ballast thing clearly. It is important that if your ballast is failing, then you get it replaced or you maybe infor another very expensive light bulb very soon.

Hope that makes your issue somewhat clearer (pardon the punn)

Check you manual for a dual brightness control that may be activated or even stuck at low level. The manufacturers web site may have a technical help team to consult - have you tried?
