Question about InFocus X1 Multimedia Projector

Infocus X1A Projector

I turned on my projector last night and there is a dark line that goes from the top right corner of the picture down to the bottom of the screen, probably about six inches wide. You can still see the picture behind it so it's more like a dark vertical shadow on the right side. Have you seen this or had this problem? I just replaced the bulb two months ago and Infocus wants to charge $250 to send it in and do maintenance on it. Should I take the bulb out and put it back in, or what do you think I should do? Please help!! I can be reached at bmello66@msn.com


Thanks!

This is a very common issue with the Infocus projectors. Sounds like the mirror tunnel that sits right behind the Color Wheel and concentrates the light source onto the DLP chip. This tunnel which is shaped like a small prism is very fragile and can "fall apart" over time. Some have attempted to try and remove the tunnel and repair with limited success. Otherwise you may either need to send the unit in for repair or find a dealer who can order the part for you.

Here is another who had the same issue;

I have an Infocus X1a Video Projector. The bulb went out & then I heard a "pop" sound I assume that because it's not coming on the fuse is blown. What do you think? So I want to know where I can...


if there are no leds on the top, then you're right about the fuse. radio shack or any electronics store will carry them. it's a ceramic buss fuse. 5 amp, 250 volts. bring the fuse in to them and they're help you. there are places on line that will have them too, but shipping would cost more than the part itself. if the fans come on and no light, it may have just been the lamp.

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.

My bulb went out in my x1a so i replaced it now it


is the led on the top of the projector blinkng at all? if there is no led lit, the fuse on the power supply may be blown or the power supply itself needs replacing. turn the projector on. you should hear the fans and a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear that whir or it sounds like a noisy motor, the colorwheel needs replacing. if it sounds good but no light, make sure you have the correct lamp. the x1a takes the sp-lamp-009 lamp. it should have 2 white wires, each at opposite ends of the plug. if you have a lamp with a red wire and a white wire, you have a lamp for an x2. also make sure the lamp door is closed completely. if the door is closed (hitting the switch), the lamp is correct, the led is green, and the sounds are good and it still does not light, the ballast is bad and needs replacing.

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?
