    Yes figured that, I just used a bit of kiwi injunuity and hard mounted an old nokia cellphone charger, transformer, inside of the projector to power the fan, with a relay from the control board giving only small voltage telling the nokia charger when to turn on and off as if it were never broken. Fixed the problem extremely well and the projector is working 100% now that I have done this and replaced the light tunnel.

The cost of a new controller is prohibitive. If you have to replace that, you may as well replace the projector. It is the second most expensive part in the projector, the optical engine being the most expensive. Last time I checked, a new Controller Board assy is in the neighborhood of $800 - $900.

How do you change the colour wheel


remove the rear panel, front panel, and top. the colorwheel is between the lens and the lamp. removing it is easy, but to unplug it, you need to remove the 2 power boards, the shield, and the fan/lamp housing assembly. there is a tip on this site with a detailed description on replacing it. it's under infocus x2. the x2 and the sp4805 are basically the same machine.

I need a new light tunnel for my infocus X2


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.

Infocus projector power supply dead


the caps dry out. look for bulging caps. you won't find a schematic for the ps boards. infocus had someone else make them. the problem seems more like a overheating issue. as for the other one with the "just the fans", check the colorwheel.

Hi there

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.

Infocus x2 dose nothing


Assuming the power outlet and cable is OK the most likely problem is the power supply and needs to be replaced.
