    I have the Infocus 4805 and need a new color wheel for it. The original color wheel is screeching so loudly that it's hard to hear the TV sound. Tried taking it apart to oil it but it looked like a sealed motor unit :-((



    Thanks, jnsnwt@hotmail.com

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.

Powering On
  • If your InFocus 4805 projector is having a hard time powering on or doesn't power on at all, it could be one of two things. Due to the extreme temperature of the lamp that causes the temperature of the projector to rise, every InFocus 4805 projector has a cooling system. Check your projector's cooling solution, as it may need to be replaced. Also check the projector's fan---if the fan doesn't spin, the unit will not turn on. If the problem is the fan, you'll have to get it replaced. You can do this at the same place you bought your projector.
  • The Lamp
  • If your InFocus 4805 Projector powers on but does not project any light, the lamp will need to be replaced. All projector lamps must be replaced at some point---how often usually depends on how much use the device gets. Simply order a replacement lamp, unscrew the old one and screw the new one in. The projector will then work like new.
  • Color Wheel
  • If your InFocus 4805 projector powers on and is displaying images but the colors on the images appear warped or are not in the proper places, your "color wheel" will need to be replaced. The color wheel is a small device that essentially acts like a prism. Light is projected through it and it displays the appropriate colors on screen the way they appear in the original video source. Order a replacement color wheel that fits your model and use your instruction manual as a guide as you swap the old one out and put the new one in.

    InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 no projection. Unit powers on and green light blinks, but no light and no fan, eventually red light blinks continuously about 2 seconds between blinks. When the green light is...


    the high-pitched sound is the colorwheel trying to spin up to speed. that may need to be replaced. check the inside of the lamp for bulges, black spots, fogging or flaking. if it has any of those, replace the lamp. you can get parts from an infocus service center or send it to them for repair. either way, try www.avsolutionsny.com they're really good. if you want to replace it yourself, there is a detailed step-by-step on my "tips" area. it's the same as the infocus x1, x2, x3 and sp4805. click on my picture and scroll down to tips. good luck!

    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.

    In need of new controller board???


    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.

    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.
