Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 Multimedia Projector
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 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.

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.
