Fixing an Infocus X2 Light Tunnel Problem...

Hi,

I get the "usual" dark band on the right side which seems to be the light tunnel not-so-infrequent problem...

Can I fix that myself by putting the tunnel back in place, or do I absolutely need a professional ?

Thank you !

Hi JF1226

This quite a tricky job , but not impossible.

You will see once you've taken out the light tunnel ( also known as the packlight pipe module ) that there is one or two of the small mirrors that has come loose as a result of the lamp's heat.

Glue them back with Super Glue that dries very fast.
Do them one by one , always try to build them back in from edge to edge i.e. - If the top one and left side one is loose , do the side one first and then the top one - just makes it easier.

Remember you only have one shot at this , so do it carefully.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Its a Light Tunnel failure. Go to www.avsforums.com and search for 4805 Light Tunnel. There are instructions to open the PJ and repair the Tunnel. Also, I posted a DIY replacement option in lieu of fixing the very fragile tunnel.

Left hand side of image appears darker than rest of image as if a shadow is caused from somewhere. Unsure if this is a lamp problem or a camera problem


If it looks like a dark orange/brown band, its likely to be a Light Tunnel Failure. The Tunnel can be fixed thru the manufacturer, but it will cost plenty. You can also do it yourself.
For additional info, go to www.avsforum.com and search for "4805 Light Tunnel" and you will see threads about the problem...as well as DIY repairs.
I also posted a DIY replacement option since new Tunnels are virtually non-existent:

X2 OHP mounted on ceiling fixture. Image is dark on right side


Yes it will have to come off the ceiling. It sounds like the light tunnel has collasped. This is located under the colorwheel. If you can get a new tunnel , be careful removing the colorwheel so no segments break off of it...make sure the new tunnel is pushed against the "lip" before screwing the tunnel clip back into place.

Need help looking for the part.


Hi:

Seems you broke the part called the color wheel assembly. Usually the color wheel can be replaced by you or a qualified TV servicer.

I have an infocus X2 projector that has a shadow on one side of the image. After reading other posts, this appears to be indicative of a light tunnel collapse. Is this problem repairable in an X2 and if so...


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.

Dark side of screen


the light tunnel has collapsed and needs replacing. the part is inexpensive and relatively easy to replace. if you can get the part from infocus or an authorized service center (part # 306-0095-01), remove the top (4 brass screws and 4 silver screws on the bottom, 2-3 silver screws on the back), next to the lens is the colorwheel. remove the 2 black screws on the colorwheel base, 2 black screws on the metal tunnel frame side, remove the tunnel glass. replace, and reverse the instructions to put it back together.

Infocus X2 shadow on right side


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.

How much does a light tunnel repair cost?


Hi there

The light tunnel is not a expensive part to have replaced and it is better to do it than to keep on buying new lamps.

You can easily find your nearest Authorised Service Dept online.

Tip : Don't let just any monkey do this type of work on your unit , rather pay a bit more with the authorised agents.
