Infocus X2 shadow on right side

After (gently) replace a lamp last Friday, there is now a vertical shadow on the right ~8" of the screen. Amazon's review forum indicates optical system coming unglued. You noted "Tunnel problem." in an earlier post. Would you kindly explain if this is applicable to the X2 model, and offer a resolution?

I fixed the light tunnel by replace it by a fold and cut stanless metal came from a dog food plate. ( use one who is shiny like a mirror)
You just have to cut the plate with a metal cissor and calculate exatly the size of the parts to replace.Not easy to fold so use a vice and a hammer to make 2 metal parts L shape, and joint it together with a aluminium tape, works Fine ! 7 $ fix ! Very solid !

You are describing a light tunnel failure. Unfortunately, Infocus has decided to discontinue any parts for the X series. Your only recourse is to repair the tunnel with superglue. Or buy a new projector. If you do attempt repair, note that the corners do not line up, rather the sides are offset slightly.

I have the same problem, my tunnel is completely collapsed, Thanks for this info!

Posted on Feb 06, 2013

I had the same problem and managed to fix it. One of the sides of the light tunnel had become unglued and had collapsed into the tunnel. I reglued it and it has worked fine ever since. You need to remove a few brackets and the color wheel in order to access the tunnel from memory, it was a while back that I did it so cannot quite remember. I took photos incase I was able to help someone else.

SOURCE: I have an infocus X2 projector that has a shadow

the light tunnel has collapsed and needs to be replaced. it's pretty simple to repair. there are directions on the "tips" part of my profile. so, you can get the part from an infocus service center and do it yourself or send it in to them for repair. either way, try www.avsolutionsny.com. they're really good.

The light tunnel has collapsed. Google "infocus light tunnel." You can glue it, as I did, but it tends to break again. From what I have read nobody has a good fix and the manufacturer has ignored the problem which has alienated a lot of customers. They won't even sell a replacement tunnel. Good luck!

that little glass square broke off of the colorwheel, and it needs to be replaced. that yellow/gray line is from the light tunnel collapsing. both parts can be purchased and replaced by you. if you don't feel comfortable doing it, you can send it in to an authorized service center. try av solutions. they're pretty good. you can purchase infocus parts from them, too.

Lp70+ display shows a solid black vertical line


the light tunnel is either collapsing and blocking the light going through it (and needs replacement) or the vertical/hoizontal adjustment of the tunnel. if you take the lamp out and move the colorwheel (with a pencil eraser) to the clear section, you should be able to see a square through it. if part of the square is blocking the middle, the tunnel needs replacing.

by the way, on some projectors the light tunnel is called an integrator rod.

Infocus 70+


We have had similar issue w/ multiple LP70+ projectors. The units get to be 1-2 years old and suddenly the right vertical edge of the display is distorted. There is usually a shadowed vertical bar that clouds about 3-5% of the horizontal space from the right edge.
What's the cause?

1/2 the screen is viewable


You would be wrong. Lamps do not do that. They either work or they don't, they do not cast shadows or give half an image.

What is going on is the light tunnel has failed. It is a small, 4-sided mirrored tunnel that focuses the light into the optical chamber. It is directly behind the color wheel. I've seen this probelm dozens of times.
