Infocus x2, the bulb melts the small square lens even w/ fan on

My old bulb burned out, so I replaced it and the small square clear lens keeps melting when i turn it on ...even though the fan is on. I've tried replaced the bulb once and the entire lamp housing once too. each time it melts! Can you help me solve it? Thanks!

Either the ballast is bad and is sending too much current to the lamp, the lamps are a cheap knockoff, the thermal fuse is altered, and/or one of the fans aren't working.

InFocus X3 plastic lens


If you still have the owners manual there should be an 800 number or some sort of customer support for it. Unless it's really old that is your best bet for the internal pieces

Where could I get the plastic lens for my infocus 61md10


Remove the little plastic lens and throw it away. There is no replacement available anyway. Reassemble the tv and it should work fine. Mine has been good for quite a while now.

Transparency melted onto IN1503 lens


try peeling what you can off and then go to an electronics store like radio shack and get some aerosol board cleaner like BIO-ACT E37M which is a cleaner good at dissolving or breaking down plastic or FLUXOFF board cleaner and work at cleaning it off with a non abrasive cloth and scraping off with something plastic like a credit card and keep working at it until it is mostly clean and maybe a little hazy looking and then get a new cloth and start cleaning the left over residue off the lens with alcohol until it is clean.

How can i fix the brightnees in my 61md10


there is a menu setting for best pix or longer lamp life.
Also, turn up brightness of picture settings(different menu)
Also use daylight setting, vibrant, (different menu).
Bulbs dim over time and dust can accumulate on projector lens, mirrors and (not so much on mine) back of screen.
New lamps tend to melt a plastic lens in light engine, a dark shadow may start to appear upper left or center. this started to happen to me with new bulb, (Ebay O.E.M. supposedly $114). I switched back to original lamp hopefully to slow the burn till I can tacklle a repair. Take a look at this website. Hope that helps.

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.

Round black spot in middle of the picture/screen


Hi :-)

The round blotch your seeing on the screen is the melting of an acrylic lens inside the light engine. Its a design flaw which unfortunately Infocus will not stand behind. To fix this problem requires opening the light engine and putting an equivalent lens in place. This task is very involved, but this problem is repairable and you need a glass smith to cut the right size lens from the original.

Infocus x2...the bulb melts the small square lens even w/ fan on


there is more than one fan inside. one of them may not be working. also, if there is excessive dust inside, the heat won't leave. blow out all of the dust with canned air. if one of the fans are running slow, replace it. lastly, do not use an aftermarket lamp. get a good one from the comapny.

Fan fuse keeps burning out


I would think the fan motor is drawing too much current, causing the fuse housing to melt.
