Bulb won't light

I have an Infocus X1 projector. When I tried to use it last I noticed the light would not come on. after a few minutes I noticed the LCD light at the top blink one 1 red. According to the manual this means the buld is burnt out. I purchased another bulb for $320.00 put it in and the same, nop light and 1 blinking red light on the top. Did I get a bad bulb or is somthing else wrong?

    same problem with mine, i don't think the bulb is blown. my color
    wheel has been making lots of noise like someone running a saw for a couple of months now. a couple of days ago the bulb won't light and the red LED is blinking.

Thank you for your immediate reply. I could solve by myself. The problem was with power supply cable.

the caps dry out. look for bulging caps. you won't find a schematic for the ps boards. infocus had someone else make them. the problem seems more like a overheating issue. as for the other one with the "just the fans", check the colorwheel.

SOURCE: INfocus X1 does nothing after bulb replacement

first off, make sur you have the right lamp (sp-lamp-009, 2 white wires. not the sp-lamp-018, one white, one red. the wires are in different locations in the plug). if you don't hear the colorwheel whirring, that'd be the next step. however, you cannot buy just the colorwheel. infocus does not sell individual parts of the optical engine. but that wouldn't matter, seeing as how they don't sell the engine anymore. also make sure the lamp door is completely closed. there is a peg on it that activates a switch to let the projector know it's closed. if you remove the lamp and use a flat-head screwdriver to activate that switch, turn on the projector. look inside the lamp housing and see if the colorwheel spins. if not, i think you need a new projector. if it does, check the fans. they can be replaced.

Hello,
Well there are only a couple of things that could cause this problem. However considering this all started when it was mounted consider the possibility you may have used screws that are too long and are is/are subsequently shorting something out.


Cheers

Replaced bulb. Worked for a while then wouldnt power up again.


the cheew cheew cheew is the colorwheel not spinning properly. either the colorwheel motor is shot, the sensor can't sense it, or the power to it is too low. first thing: remove the cover and blow the dust out of it with canned air. dust does a lot of damage to these. if it is the sensor, cleaning it off might help. if it is the colorwheel, i have bad news: on the x1, the colorwheel is not sold seperately from the optical engine. you'd have to get the entire optical engine. now the worse news: infocus no longer makes or sells parts for the x1. you could try and find one on ebay that has a different problem and swap out the parts

The bulb on X1 blew out, I replaced the bulb, the


it's the fan. if it won't spin full power, it can't cool down the projector and it'll shut down. there are 2: 60mm (part # 526-0153-00) and 80mm (526-0152-00). both can be purchased from infocus or an infocus service center.

Infocus x1 noise problem


the colorwheel motor does burn out after a while (from heat and dust), but as long as it spins at the right speed, you won't see a problem in the image. if it's making noise, it's going to go soon. it does need replacing. however, infocus does not sell individual parts for the x1 optical engine. you will need to replace the entire engine, which costs up to $2000. so, enjoy the last few hours with your machine and look into getting another.
