SP 4805 LOUD BUZZING

I've had the color wheel repaired for the same problem before, so I recognize the problem. I wonder if I can repair and get parts. Also is the problem related to a light tunnel problem. My picture quality has worsened to include "white glares" i loose detail in faces and other images as the white areas of skin that appear to be natural glare are really bright. Darkening the picture through the setting adjustements does not help. Please help me with suggestions. I'm really thinking about getting a new kind of projector, hoping to avoid anymore color wheel breaks if I can't afford the repairs over and over.
Thanks.

    The truth hurts... but I should not have to pay for the suggestion. I hope you can still get a parts cost estimate and a plan of how to replace the parts. I'll feel better about buying advice and attempting to repair this projector.

    I appreciate the quick responses even after teasing you. I have to search my paper work for the serial number, otherwise i'll have to take the projector down, to reveal the numbers under the mounting bracket-- big mess. If I can get back to you in about an hour with the numbers that would be great. I have to get going on an errand for now.



    Thanks!

I would suggest that you get another one. if this is the second time you are having to replace the same part than there has to be a reason that it is breaking over and over. projectors are funny when it comes to parts and service. even thought something looks like there is something major wronge it could be just a dirty lens from the inside. and than when it is simple it is usually something major that needs repaired. It is only my opinion that you buy a new one. but i will direct you to where you need to go to get the parts you need to fix the problem. i will post another comment in a few.

Just replaced burnt out bulb in Infocus 4805 projector. Great picture with new bulb but only black and white. Is this a bulb issue or something else in the projector?


This is most likely the color wheel. When the bulb blows, it can damage the color wheel. The color wheel is a wheel composed of thin layers of colored glass that spins in front of the projected image. It is possible to repair it with super glue, but the best way is to try to find a new one to buy.

How do i find out if i need a new lamp for my infocus 4805. when i turn it on the fan blows for a cpl secs and the green light blinks a few times, but i dont get anything saying the lampis out


when you power it on, do you hear a high-pitched whir? if not, you need to replace the colorwheel. it's also the colorwheel if you hear a buzzing instead. if the colorwheel does not spin, the lamp won't come on. if the colorwheel is ok, check the lamp. is the screen on the side of the lamp clogged with dust? is the inside of the lamp bulging, spotted, or foggy? if so, replace the lamp and clean out your projector with canned air. dust blocks air flow and keeps in the heat. this shortens the life of your lamp and projector. if you do need the colorwheel replaced, you could get the part from an infocus service center and do it yourself, or send it in for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

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!

New Problem after fixing Light Tunnel on a SP 4805


It sounds like you have mounted the replacement light tunnel incorrectly. It is a common error. What has happened is you have the light tunnel sitting on yop of the positioning stop which is opposite from the color wheel side. If you take it back apart you will see that it's not laying parallel to the casting. if you reposition it so it is just touching where the opening is in the clamp on the color wheel side you will feel it fall into place.

Color Wheel SP 4805


well, u might laugh at how i have solved this problem a couple of times... yea, the colour wheel on my sp4805 came apart to pieces, literally. the first time it was only two of the six segments, so i reglued em with SUREHOLD all american super glue. it lasted perfectly for about , say, 5 months or so... then, it happenned again this time shattering all of the six segments to pieces. oh, no!!!!! well, i breathed woundly and looked for the glue one more time... yes, an artesan work that took me about 3 hours and my eyes crying to almost perfectly glue together all of the six segments one by one, each one in pieces and this time the color, of course, isnt so perfect, but close to it... how long will it last this time? can someone tell me why no one sells this pieces, it would be a great business over the internet!!! i dont wanna bury my sp4805 in the backyard... and i dont know if the colour wheel can sustain any more glue... lol. well, its just a solution for a few months while u can save for a new proyector... shame for infocus... hope it helps u. let me know if u know about someone who sells color wheels ok?

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.
