Question about InFocus X1 Multimedia Projector

Loud Noise Recently, my projector has started making a loud buzzing noise. It is loud enough to be an inconvience to watching movies or television. I have just cleaned the lamp, which was very dusty, and it is still making the noise. Please help. Thank you.

Hey topher1234,

If this is an X1, X2 then you could be looking at a common issue with the DLP color wheel. Seems that the wheel can make an intermittent noise for some time before the sound becomes constant. The solution is to replace the wheel which is not easy to come by.

Take a look at another who had a similar issue to see if you are experiencing the same; http://www.fixya.com/support/t358467-infocus_x1_projector

Hi topher1234

I will need your Make and Model of the Projector , before I can do a diagnosis. Also include if this is a LCD or DLP machine.

Together with the above , can you feel any vibration on the Projector when you place your hand on it ?

Sound issues when connected to PS3 with HDMI


I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

My projector is making loud buzzing noises that arent normal.. I just ceiling mounted my projector its an InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 and the bulb has 1500 hours on it. The buzz started after it was on for 30...


If this sound you are describing is NOT constant and is intermittent in nature it is certainly not a color wheel problem. This sound is usually caused by failure of the Lamp cooling fan (the large one)'s Mos-Fet driver chip. Located on the bottom of the main board. These surface mount "chips" do fail and it's a fairly common problem however this is usually (but not always) accompanied by the projector shutting itself down after a few minuets or so as the high temp switch trips off. A color wheel common failure presents in two ways, either all the glass color filters fly off (there are six) and the image is monochrome (black and white) or just one or more of the segments has come off and the result is an imbalance of the color wheel which spins VERY fast resulting in a vibration
that is constant and can easily be felt by placing your hand on the projector. And all of these problems are very easy to repair.

Good Luck!

It started making a loud noise and it suddenly


it's the colorwheel. part# 70.81R26GR01. you can get the part and do it yourself, or send it to a service center. either way, av solutions in ny is pretty good (www.avsolutionsny.com). they can either get you the part or replace it for you.

Infocus SP 5000 loud electrical noise, then dead


check the lamp again. look in the reflection in the bell of the center glass. do you see any black spots or cracks or uneven bulging? if so, change the lamp and blow the dust out, because it may be over heating. otherwise, the power supply is fried and needs replacing.

Buzzing noise, trying to open the cover


It sounds like a piece of your colour wheel has fallen off. You will need to take the front panel off (2 screws) plus the two plastic rings around the lens pull out. Be careful not to snap a circuit that sticks out behind the remote sensor on the front. I've had this problem a few times but have just glued it in with 24 hour drying glue, the noise i had was so loud it was hard to watch anything, plus i lost the red colour to the picture until i glued it back in.

Projector stays on for 3 minutes then turns itself off


Hi Chipped Rice

The loud buzzing noise you heard was the colourwheel that gave in.

Now what happens is , the machine will turn on and go through the whole cycle and as soon as the colourwheel is supposed to start doing it's stuff the Projector will switch off because there is no response from the coulourwheel itself.

You will have to replace the colourwheel unfortunately as it cannot be fixed.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Sound


Connect the projector to an external amplifier and speakers.
The speaker system built in is designed for watching movies etc in a small quiet room.

Hope that helps =)

CP-S335 popping noise when powering on


Hi Eva

A Projector does'nt like being switched on and off all the time , if you are going to watch a couple of movies - rather leave the machine running all the time - this will also help you to get more hours out of your lamp - and that's a promise.

As far as the noise is concerned - it is most probably just the machine that was not cooled down properly at that stage.

Horrible noise


it is the color wheel i have a similar problem and am looking for the part, the color wheel is a small electric motor that spins at a high speed and it can go bad. which will lead to the horrible squeel/hum/buzz.
