The color wheel on my infocus 7200 is bad and getting worse.

Noticed intermittent noise which has grown worse over the last several weeks. I'm curious if I can replace or somehow repair the color wheel. Thanks

Have you cleaned the inside of the case out? It may be dusty and dirty. UNPLUG FIRST! If you can carefully remove the cover and inspect. Use a vacuum in reverse or canned air to blow out loose dust and debris. Clean or replace any projector filters.

HLP4663wx/xaa Fan or Color wheel making noise? I first noticed it within the last week making noise when turning the set off. Now it's continuous. Could hear it slowing down on power off, constant...


A fan like noise is 98% of the time the color wheel.

Wheel turns at over 12,000 rpm and common failure is "fan like sound or even grinding sound".

When these sets first came out if the high pitched sound started women who have better hearing in that range usually hear it first.

If wheel really fails it will shatter and set will not come on----a grinding sound may be noticed just before total failure.

I have two dlp infocus X2 projectors. Both of them have lost their color. Is there something I can do to fix it?


This could be one of 2 things. It could have a bad color wheel or there is a setting problem in the unit. If the video mode is not set correctly like NTS or PAL it can give a black and white image.

The other could be your color wheel has failed. Did the unit make any noises before the color went out?

Some times the color wheels will make noises when the age before they crack or break from the heat.

I believen you can pull the lamp out and with the lamp out try and power the unit up, look into the little hole the lamp shines into and see the color wheel spinning. when you first plug it in and unplug it the wheel should spin and you should see the colors change. DONT TOUCH THE COLOR WHEEL they are fragile and can break easy. Some get more brittle over time from the heat of the lamp.

Color wheel making noise can it be lubricated


no. it's a maintenance-less, brushless motor. you can blow the dust out of it with canned air, but most likely the bearings are shot and you'll need to replace it. you could get the part from an infocus service center and do it yourself, or send it to them for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

Infocus x1 noise problem


the colorwheel motor does burn out after a while (from heat and dust), but as long as it spins at the right speed, you won't see a problem in the image. if it's making noise, it's going to go soon. it does need replacing. however, infocus does not sell individual parts for the x1 optical engine. you will need to replace the entire engine, which costs up to $2000. so, enjoy the last few hours with your machine and look into getting another.

Infocus 4805 - Doesnot display and make noise at start-up


Well a single red blinking means the lamp won't strike after five (5) attempts. The "squeaking" sound if it's coming form the large fan usually always means the Mos-Fet fan speed controller chip has failed which presents sometimes as an intermittent squeaking sound. Which would implies the lamp may have failed from the resultant over temp. However if the squeaking noise is coming from the color wheel that would mean it's bearings have failed and if is is unable to phase lock at reference speed the lamp would also not strike. The odd symptom is the remote thing... That does not fit! If is actually is related to the common cause of all the problems... That leaves only the power supply has partially failed (not too expensive) causing all of these symptoms.

Or murphy has moved in...

Good luck!

Automatic or manual? May be low transmission fluid, or (less likely) bad CV joint. Have mechanic get it up on the lift and check for leaks, then spin the tires, see if the noise will manifest itself.

FAST BLINKING GREEN & WON'T POWER ON


I had exactly this problem. After plugging and unplugging it multiple times over several weeks (even plugging it in quickly after it was unplugged but with the green light still flashing as suggested here) all to no avail, it just started working on its own one day. It worked for a few weeks and then the problem re-appeared.

InFocus tech support recommended:
1. Check whether the lamp door is securely closed.
2. Check the color of the LED and the number of time it blinks. (For me, a very fast almost flickering flash)
3. Does the fan operate? (My fan would go on when plugged in)
4. Remove the lamp module, shake it gently and reseat the lamp module.

For me, these steps did not work. InFocus then recommended that I send it to ProjectorDoctor http://online.projectordoctor.com/, and it was diagnosed with a bad power supply. $395, but it is fully functional again. Good luck.........
