Infocus x2 fan no power test outside projector it run
replace fan little power movement
Yes, this is a very common problem unfortunately.
It is in the controller board, which stops supplying the fan with enough voltage to start or continue to run. I fixed this problem using an old nokia charger, and some kiwi injinuity which fixed the problem brilliantly and no-one will ever notice =)
If you would like, I can tell you how and maybe get some pics of my one?

My cineza hs2 will not startup, it flashes the temp/fan lamp continually. Is this a matter of just replacing the fan? and where can i get one?

I also had the same problem that the fan had died. Using the X1 service guide (http://members.shaw.ca/netguy/x1serviceguide.pdf) which is really close to the X2, I opened up the X2 (not for the faint of heart). I measured the the voltage to the fans and it was only 6Vdc, it should be 12Vdc. The smaller fan was running but the larger one (for the bulb) was only twitching. Thus the reason that the bulb burned out early. So I used what someone had recommended earlier and provided external 12Vdc to the fans. Works great. I happened to have a nice 12Vdc 1.5A "brick" laying around as a power source. You can find them at Radio Shack ($35 needs to be at least 500ma). You could wire the brick directly to the fans but I installed a power jack on the side of the plastic housing, which matches the power plug on the brick - so that I can unplug it. The only trick when using external fan power is that you need to run the fans for about 3-5 mins after the lamp is shut off to allow it to cool down gracefully. Normally the projector handles this for you. So you need to first power off the projector but leave the fans running for a while. A small price to pay for a cheap fix. Enjoy.

If this problem still persists after replacing the fans , you should check the Powerboard that supplies the fans power.
