Was actually looking up a different problem with an X2 and came across this thread.

I do electronic repair, and often do repair on projectors with this light tunnel problem. Probably 3 a week!

I came up with a solution about a year ago. It's a tunnel peice made of highly resilient carbon fiber, lined inside with extremely reflective mirrored stainless steel.

A company here in St Louis builds them for me and I go through quite a few!

If anyone is interested, feel free to email me at mhale@ahvio.com. I charge $50 per replacement tunnel (They are pretty expensive to make). Plus $10 for shipping to anyone in the US, unless you want to come by and pick it up.

I can include a extremely easy guide to install (Its VERY easy!)

These carbon fiber replacement tubes are a solid peice, unlike the factory that is just glued together mirrors :/ They are morons! haha

I've been using this replacement tubes for about a year now and installed well over 50, so I swear by them! Very resilient to heat, and very resilient to someone installing it that isn't very careful. It's almost impossible to break!

Also sale homemade LED super high flux projector bulbs for the X1, X2, and X3. May be able to build a bulb for a different brand, depending on what the current bulb is like.

These LED bulbs have a life of 40,000+ hrs and use very little power, and produce VERY LITTLE HEAT! Cheaper to build than the factory ones, at about $175 for a complete bulb with assembly. Have about the same ANSI output as the standard bulbs, I actually think it's a little more than the rated (like 50 more lumens or so~)
If interested in either, feel free to hit me up! Willing to send parts, or can do install myself.

X2 OHP mounted on ceiling fixture. Image is dark on right side


Yes it will have to come off the ceiling. It sounds like the light tunnel has collasped. This is located under the colorwheel. If you can get a new tunnel , be careful removing the colorwheel so no segments break off of it...make sure the new tunnel is pushed against the "lip" before screwing the tunnel clip back into place.

I have an infocus X2 projector that has a shadow on one side of the image. After reading other posts, this appears to be indicative of a light tunnel collapse. Is this problem repairable in an X2 and if so...


the light tunnel has collapsed and needs to be replaced. it's pretty simple to repair. there are directions on the "tips" part of my profile. so, you can get the part from an infocus service center and do it yourself or send it in to them for repair. either way, try www.avsolutionsny.com. they're really good.

Infocus X2 projector shows picture in black and white only...


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.

Fixing an Infocus X2 Light Tunnel Problem...


Hi JF1226

This quite a tricky job , but not impossible.

You will see once you've taken out the light tunnel ( also known as the packlight pipe module ) that there is one or two of the small mirrors that has come loose as a result of the lamp's heat.

Glue them back with Super Glue that dries very fast.
Do them one by one , always try to build them back in from edge to edge i.e. - If the top one and left side one is loose , do the side one first and then the top one - just makes it easier.

Remember you only have one shot at this , so do it carefully.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Infocus X2 shadow on right side


You are describing a light tunnel failure. Unfortunately, Infocus has decided to discontinue any parts for the X series. Your only recourse is to repair the tunnel with superglue. Or buy a new projector. If you do attempt repair, note that the corners do not line up, rather the sides are offset slightly.

PLEASE HELP!!


It also depends what part you need because although the 3 models look similar none of the parts are compatabile with each other except maybe some body parts and the X1 and X2 share the same light tunnel but it would be a risk to assume that the light tunnel from a used model is OK. The only 2 models that share the same parts are the X1 and SP4800. The X2 is brighter and the SP4805 has a 16:9 native ratio.
