Sanyo xacti digital camcorder screen not working when opened out

It's most likely a damaged LCD cable which goes through the hinge - happens to many camcorders. You will have to contact your local Sanyo service center. I replace these cables for Sony camcorders every day.

Sorry for the bad news, but hope this helps.

Projector makes wierd noise and shuts down after several minutes

3 problems: 1- the light tunnel is collaping and needs replacing. 2- the tunnel might be hitting the colorwheel, which is now making that wierd noise. and 3- it needs cleaning. these models are famous for these 3 problems. there are no filters, so the dust just gets sucked in. the glue on the tunnel wears out from heat after a while. the colorwheel motor also wears out from heat and dust. the parts are not that expensive and they are relatively easy to install. contact an infocus authorized service center (from their website) and either get these parts or send it in.

tunnel- 306-0095-01
colorwheel- 525-0146-00

Ring of light acting wierd (not red though)

Don't use the intercooler, it's really not good for the console. I'm not sure what could be causing the 'fading' effect, I don't think I've ever heard of this. Call Microsoft and explain your situation, there may also be more info on your problem on sites like or llamma. Sorry I can't be of more help but please rate if at all useful, thanks!
