Hoover wind tunnel the red light dirt finder stays on


There's a microphone inside the tube the dirt runs up. It listens for dirt coming up the tube. They just go bad and there's no making it better. You can either replace that entire assembly or ignore it. Fairly easy to replace. I'll include the part so you know what you're looking at.
Good luck! The Vac Dr.

Tip

Mirror or light tunnel collapsing


A weakness that you might experience with your projector is the collapsing of the light or mirror tunnel. Not sure if this is common to DLP projectors only. The symptom is that you see grey bands or shadows on the edge of the TV image - this is caused by a mirror getting in the way of the bulb light. The glue holding the mirrors together seems to weaken over time (3000 lamp hours in my case) and causes one or more of the mirrors to loose its position. For solution, search for "mirror tunnel" or "light tunnel" under all projectors. The problem seems to be quite widespread. I managed to fix my LG's.

I wonder why the manufacturers don't use a rectangular glass tube that is mirror plated on the long sides ?!?! Suppose they want to sell new projectors after lamp or mirror tunnel expiry!

The flames on our pitco frialator (40lbs) are not suctioning through the tunnels and is burning an orange flame out the front of the burners instead. We are mobile unit with two 100lb tanks. We clean the...


The flame is restricted to flow inside fire tubes, make sure that all fire tubes are free of soot/ carbon deposit. There should be no air flowing (hood fresh air or any ventilation) or entering the flue box because this will cause the flame to roll back to burners. Also, make sure that the unit receives the right amount of gas pressure as specified in the nameplate, this will surely eliminate carbon build up on fire tubes and burners.

The upper left corner of the screen (triangular shape, approx. 8" vert. and hor. from the corner) is showing dimness, not completely dark but maybe halfway. What might be causing this? Thanks.


This is your mirror tunnel. Light passes through the mirror tunnel to the DLP. The tunnel is made up of 4 mirrors glued together. Over time the glue comes apart and the tunnel shifts.

It starts out like this: |_|
and when the glue breaks down it does this: \_\

So the light, instead of passing through the mirror tube, goes through the ends of the mirror, so you get SOME light but not all.

I contacted RCA and they said:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay for a broken engine and replace it that ways. "
Awesome support! NOT! (That is the actual full text of the message from RCA support.)

I have some high temp epoxy and will be attempting to re-glue the parts myself.

White Vertical line in the screen.


Again, this sounds like a light tunnel failure. See my other post about this.
I replaced my light tunnel with square brass tubing I picked up at the hobby shop.

1/4 of screen is black (right side)


It is the light tunnel. The tunnel is four small pieces of glass in a aluminum tube the size of tootsie roll. in the center of the light engine.

TV has alittle dark haze,not bad,9inchs in from side,top to Bott


Probably the light tunnel. The tunnel is a square tube made up of 4 mirrors glued together.

It looks like this from the side: |_| (with a piece on top too.)
When the glue breaks down, it shifts inside the little mirror holder. The shifted mirrors looks like this /_/ what you are seeing is the shadow of the tilted mirror tunnel.
ON the RCA's there's not a good fix.

RCA's response:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay2_bing.gif for a broken engine and replace it that ways."

That is the ONLY response I got from them.

I took the set apart and found the 4 tiny mirrors. I will be attempting to epoxy them together. (The set is dead anyway, why not try?)

Infocus x3 video problem


Sounds like it could be the mirror tunnel. There is a very small mirror tunnel behind the color wheel (looks like a long prism) that can often fail as it is very fragile. This tunnel concentrates and channels the light to the DLP chip and if it collapses it can cause the very issue you describe.
