Hello,
This is a common problem and is most always caused by a failing "light pipe/tunnel" They are not to difficult to
replace but it can be tedious. The part is around $80 US


Cheers

I have a vertical shadow about 1-2 ft in width running up the right side of the projected picture. The bulb was just replaced this year and the shadow didn't start until some time after the bulb was...


The light tunnel has collapsed. Google "infocus light tunnel." You can glue it, as I did, but it tends to break again. From what I have read nobody has a good fix and the manufacturer has ignored the problem which has alienated a lot of customers. They won't even sell a replacement tunnel. Good luck!

InFocus X1A - while watching, the picture went out and then the unit had a flashing red light where before its always been constant green indicating the unit was on. I dont have a manual. Any ideas?


check the lamp. if it has bulges, black spot, fogging, or flaking, or dust is clogging the side vent screen, replace the lamp. if the lamop is ok, check the colorwheel. if you hear a high-pitched whir, the wheel is ok. if you hear grinding or chirping or nothing at all, replace the colorwheel. if both are ok, replace the power supply. you can get parts from an infocus service center or send it to one for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

The right vertical side of the projected picture seems to be slightly shadowed. Is this the lens or for some strange reason is the bulb going out? It only has about 200-300 hours of use on it


if you have the dp6150 (lcd projector), you have a lens or mirror out of alignment, or something obstructing the light from the inside. if you have a dlp projector (not the dp6150), the light tunnel has collapsed and needs to be replaced. you can get the part from an infocus service center (like av solutions in ny), or send it to them for repair. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

My bulb went out in my x1a so i replaced it now it


is the led on the top of the projector blinkng at all? if there is no led lit, the fuse on the power supply may be blown or the power supply itself needs replacing. turn the projector on. you should hear the fans and a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear that whir or it sounds like a noisy motor, the colorwheel needs replacing. if it sounds good but no light, make sure you have the correct lamp. the x1a takes the sp-lamp-009 lamp. it should have 2 white wires, each at opposite ends of the plug. if you have a lamp with a red wire and a white wire, you have a lamp for an x2. also make sure the lamp door is closed completely. if the door is closed (hitting the switch), the lamp is correct, the led is green, and the sounds are good and it still does not light, the ballast is bad and needs replacing.

Infocus X1a no picture, solid green LED


if the lamp is new, it could be the power supply (the ballast is built in to the ps). but make sure you have the right lamp. the X1 and X1a have an sp-lamp-019 and the similar X2 and X3 have an sp-lamp-018. the lamps are almost identical except for the wire configuration on the lamp plug. make sure the wires in the plug match the positions in the socket. also, when you turn it on, if you don't hear a high pitch squeal, the colorwheel is not working. and if that isn't working, the lamp won't either. also check to see if the lamp door is closing properly and hitting the switch at the top of the opening.

Heyya got a infocus x1a ..im running it from vista...but there is no recognition--the projector is searching ..but what is it searching for..also there is a yellow blurring to the left of the projected...


the light tunnel is collapsing. that's causing the yellow bluring. as for the recognition, make sure that the resolution matches what the projector can handle (max 1024x768).

This is a very common issue with the Infocus projectors. Sounds like the mirror tunnel that sits right behind the Color Wheel and concentrates the light source onto the DLP chip. This tunnel which is shaped like a small prism is very fragile and can "fall apart" over time. Some have attempted to try and remove the tunnel and repair with limited success. Otherwise you may either need to send the unit in for repair or find a dealer who can order the part for you.

Here is another who had the same issue;

X1a brownish bar on right side of screen


Hi mate.

This is caused by a light tunnel fault, where infocus designed a stupid light tunnel using 4 pieces of mirror and some very tacky glue. What happens is that, over time the glue comes off causeing one of the pieces of mirro or more to collapse giving you the shaded effect on one part of the screen. I myself have had this problem and am now in need of a new light tunnel as mine literally broke, but here is a thread that tells you very efficiently (picture guided) on how to fix this problem. BUT be aware that you need a very good glue and something that will withstand the heat, thats where I went worng lol.

Hope this help, if you need any help just let me know as I have dismantled mine right to the core and put it back together faultlessly many times now so can practically do it with my eyes closed lol.

Cheers
