Proima lx2, darkening of the image and slight shake

My Proxima Lx2 has a slight darkening or shading of the image in the upper part of the projected image. I have replaced the bulb and it had no effect on either computer or video imput images. In addition, I opened up the unit and cleaned out any dust that might be inhibiting the unit (there was very little). It almost appears as a slight shading on the top of the image on both the right and left sides. It has not gotten any worse since it first appeared, but it is noticiable. I have also noticed a very slight and fast shake of the video and computer image

Re: Proima lx2, darkening of the image and slight shake

Either the fly-eye lens or the light polarizer is fried due to excessive dust and heat. bad news: you'll have to replace the entire optical engine. worse news: infocus doesn't make them anymore. sorry.

ASK Proxima C420 shuts down after 30 seconds. No indication of overheating or lamp problem.

Might be a problem with the video input. Try a different cable. If HDMI, you will need a really good cable for HDTV or 3D, and they are very expensive. My 12 foot cable cost $180.

I have power to my Proxima ultralight LX2, the ready button is green and the lamp is red. The machine will power on for a short time and then power off with a flicker of light from the bulb. I am...

It sounds like you should check the lamp to see if it has too many hours on it. The bulb should look pretty clear & round without bulging & dark spots or fogging. If it has a lot of hours it needs to be replaced. It may also be a fan that is not turning on or is not turning fast enough. Use canned air & while unplugged spray the fans to make them spin fast. You can use a flashlight to try & locate the fans behind the vented areas arount the case. If a fan is not working properly it will cause the unit to shut down. Also check your indicator lights on top & compare with the troubleshooting portion of the user guide. You can get a user guide download from google search.
Good luck,

Hi i am wondering how i can clean or even get into my proxima ultralight lx2 , its 10 years old now and the inner two or three lenses need cleaning as the picture is showing up some dust , i was thinking...

The lens should be pretty sealed up. Use some compressed air, and a lens cleaner on the front of the unit, and see how that goes. If it needs further service of the lens you may need to bring it to a professional.
