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 ?

Sony cybershot audio buzzing


I have the same problem, and cant seem to fix it. I know it has to do with the audio chatching the camera making the noise. Listen, take your camera and turn the function to take a video clip, then listen to your camera. Isnt it making the same noise as you hear on the video clip?

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!

Loud popping noise and spark coming from red projector


I would guess you have a High Voltage Leak at the Anode Lead Cap where it Mounts to the CRT. This is not a area to mess with You are better off calling a professional to fix it. It may be a little difficult to confirm if it is a intermittent problem.
Hope this helps,

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.
