Correct. If the menu is clear and sharp, the projector is focused. On the sharpness control, too much can degrade the image.

Well, that's a general statement. If you are looking to have the image look like a HDTV then you have the wrong impression of the projector's capabilities. At 800x600 resolution you will get a "good" but not great image especially if compared to a tube tv or plasma/lcd. If the graphics are sharp when you press the menu key then you probably do not have an issue. If, however, even the graphics are blurry, then you have to manually adjust the Grey outer focus ring on the lens. The inner ring will adjust the zoom. Hope this helps.

InFocus X1A - while watching, the picture went out and then the unit had a flashing red light where before its always been constant green indicating the unit was on. I dont have a manual. Any ideas?


check the lamp. if it has bulges, black spot, fogging, or flaking, or dust is clogging the side vent screen, replace the lamp. if the lamop is ok, check the colorwheel. if you hear a high-pitched whir, the wheel is ok. if you hear grinding or chirping or nothing at all, replace the colorwheel. if both are ok, replace the power supply. you can get parts from an infocus service center or send it to one for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

I have the same problem as someone else has posted on this site. When I start up the projector, x1a, it goes directly to a faint white screen without any button response. With or without a video source...


replace the colorwheel. part # 525-0144-00. you can get it through av solutions in ny. www.avsolutionsny.com it's not that difficult to replace, but if you are unsure about it, you can send it it to them to repair as well. they are an infocus service center.

High pitch noise from the projector and is not from the fans


it's the colorwheel. if you have an infocus x1a, it is a dlp projector and has a colorwheel and dmd chip instead of 3 lcd panels. the colorwheel spins to allow the lamp to stike. it should make a slight high-pitched squeal. if it's too loud, the motor is shot and needs replacing.

Infocus X1a no picture, solid green LED


if the lamp is new, it could be the power supply (the ballast is built in to the ps). but make sure you have the right lamp. the X1 and X1a have an sp-lamp-019 and the similar X2 and X3 have an sp-lamp-018. the lamps are almost identical except for the wire configuration on the lamp plug. make sure the wires in the plug match the positions in the socket. also, when you turn it on, if you don't hear a high pitch squeal, the colorwheel is not working. and if that isn't working, the lamp won't either. also check to see if the lamp door is closing properly and hitting the switch at the top of the opening.

Infocus x1a fan replacement


to remove the fan: remove the 8 screws from the bottom of the projector (4 silver, 4 inset and brass) and the 2 screws from the back. pull the back from the bottom, but use a small flat-head screwdriver to release the tabs seen through the topmost vent of the back. once off, unplug the speaker wires on the right and the cable harness on the left. pull the top off while pulling the front off from the bottom. remove the wire harnesses from the power supply board and the ground wire from the power input board. take the 4 screws off of the power input board and the 4 or 5 screws from the power supply board (and 1 center clip) and remove. take out the 4 or 5 screws from the metal shield and remove shield. now you can unplug the fan that need replacing and access the 2 screws holding the fan in. remove fan and replace with a like fan. since the fan speed is not monitored, if you can find one that's the same size, power, and plug size, use it. otherwise, contact an infocus service center and ask them for infocus part # 526-0192-00. reverse instructions to put it back together. but you must remove the front from the top case, put the top on first, plug the speaker and left harness in, then put the back and front on. wasn't that fun?

Heyya got a infocus x1a ..im running it from vista...but there is no recognition--the projector is searching ..but what is it searching for..also there is a yellow blurring to the left of the projected...


the light tunnel is collapsing. that's causing the yellow bluring. as for the recognition, make sure that the resolution matches what the projector can handle (max 1024x768).

Infocus x1a fan replacement


Hi there

I just sent you an email through fixya and I don't know if it went through but I was just saying about the fan and the grey bar. The problem with the fan, is not the fan itself, but the controller board not supplying enough voltage to the fan (you can see this by powering the fan on its own using a 6volt supply, you will fine that the fan will work perfectly normal), thus having to replace the entire control board at around $650+, this is a very common fault for these models. The grey bar as meantioned in my post is caused by the faulty light tunnel, there is a link I've posted here somewhere which tells you how to fix it, but you need extremely strong glue and electronics skills lol, otherwise infocus wouldn't sell me the part on its own, only the whole optical enigne at another $450+. Very poor service in regards to infocus.

Cheers
Rusteee

Con: Infocus x1 and infocus x1a projector


Hi there

You could most probably do that yes , it's normally only the Mainboard that is different.
