Re: silver thing fell out of X1 Infocus Projector What is...
Yes indeed. that is the colorwheel. it spins and sincs with the dmd chip to give you color and an image. unfortunately, infocus does not sell individual parts for the optical engine. you will need to replace the entire engine (which is almost $2000). time to get a new projector.

There is a lens(looks like a small magnifying glass) made out of plastic that the light shines through to focus the light on the mirror before it hits the DLP chip, that lens is Melted in the center. I unfortunately had the same thing happen to me, and I am unable to find a replacement part.
remove the lens rings using a flathead screwdriver and carefully pop them off. remove the 4 brass screws and the 4 silver screws from the bottom, and the 2 silver screws from the back. lift up the back panel from the bottom just a little. using a flathead screwdriver, pop open the 3 clips through the top vent of the rear panel. remove the rear panel. unplug the wire harness on the left and the small one on the right. lift up the top panel from the back a little bit and the front panel from the bottom. they will come off as one piece. be sure to blow out all of the dust with canned air. it's dry and there won't be any foreign particles in it. when you put everything back together, release the clip that attach the front to the top. put the top back on first, plug in the wire harnesses, then put on the front and rear panels. replace the screws. done.
first reset the settings to factory default. if the lines are still there, you'll have to reset the dmd chip board with the main board. this is a little indepth. if you are not comfortable taking things apart (almost completely) and successfully putting them back together, send it in for repair to an infocus repair center. if you can do it, here you go:
remove the 4 brass and 4 silver screws from the bottom and the 2 silver screws from the back. through the top vent on the back panel and using a flat head screwdriver, unclip the 3 clips holding the back panel on. once removed, unplug the 2 wire harnesses. remove the top and front panel. now unplug the large wire harness and remove all the brass screws on the 2 power supply boards (also the screw for the ground wire). there is a black clip in the middle of the larger power board. remove the boards. now remove the brass screws holding the metal plate on. unplug all of the plugs from the main board. remove the screws from the board. now, facing the rear of the machine, the main board is attached to the dmd chip board behind the lens assembly under the heat sink. do not lift the board up from the back, pull it back towards the rear of the projector away from the dmd board. now reinsert it all the way and replace everything you removed in reverse order. good luck!
that little glass square broke off of the colorwheel, and it needs to be replaced. that yellow/gray line is from the light tunnel collapsing. both parts can be purchased and replaced by you. if you don't feel comfortable doing it, you can send it in to an authorized service center. try av solutions. they're pretty good. you can purchase infocus parts from them, too.
remove the top, front and rear panels (4 copper screws and 4 silver screws on bottom, 2 silver on back). there are 2 fuses for the power supply. the left board (looking from the rear) is the ac filter board, and has a fuse near the plug. the right board is the power supply/ballast board, and has one fuse near the back center, but it is soldered in. if the fuses are bad, replace only with the same size fuse. to replace the power supply (either board), just remove the screws and plugs and replace with part numbers 510-1908-00 (ac filter) and 520-0143-00 (power supply).
the same functions should be able to be accessed via the remote as well as the keypad on the projector. press "menu", settings, system and de-select "rear" or "ceiling" whichever is causing the "inverted" image
There is a safety themostat inside the unit (looks like a silver button the approx size of a dime) that will shut the system down if you do not have adequate airflow. You can dis-assemble the projector by removing the screws on the bottom and rear of the housing and pressing in the plastic locking tabs inside the cover all around the perimeter but I would advise against this unless you are comfortable with delicate nature of the projector.
