Infocus X2 shadow on right side

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.

SOURCE: I have an infocus X2 projector that has a shadow

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.

TOSHIBA 57LX177 SHADOW SPOT CENTER OF SCREEN


If my research is correct you recently replaced the lamp and then the "shadow spot center of screen" appeared.

Three possible reasons I can think of for this:

Something wrong with new lamp or on face of lamp--never touch the face of a lamp as oil from you hand can leave a residue and damage the lamp or cause a image issue.

Something inside on the optical lens or even the mirror causing this--not likely but possible.

A defect in the optical light engine in the set---usually if heat which comes from the lamp damages the engine it will be a color and not black---engine has a series of lens and baffles inside that heat can damage--causes minute separation inside of the lens etc.

If the old lamp works at all try putting it back to see if same issue--did you replace just the "bulb" in the housing or the whole cartridge?

If remove new lamp look at it and where it faces--usually a clear lens faces it and if some dirt on that..........

I have small blue dots and a yellow shadow in the middle of my screen


The model indicated uses what is called a Optical Light Engine, it is a very expensive part and likely is your problem---not much else will cause this trouble.

I have a kdf-55e2000 the top of the screen has a shadow about 8 inches going across the screen. What do you recommend I do to fix this?


The shadow is most likely red in color? This is a very common issue and requires the light engine or also called the optics block replaced. The good news for you is Sony has extended the warranty for this replacement until June 2010. I have included the link for this instance and would advise you to move quickly and take advantage of the repair. Now if ANYTHING like your lamp need to be replaced that is on you as Sony is only covering the optics block, but hey its the most expensive part to replace anyway. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

Blue shadow


No. I would suspect it being a Optical Block issue. I is not a pretty repair not to mention the cost factor. If you could get in touch with Hitachi Customer Service they could lead you to s service facility that could comfirm what I think.

Optoma RD-50 DLP has dark vertical shadow on right side of screen


turning off the main can be very harmful to rear projectors if you dont wait for the cooling off period, for instance when you turn off the tv from the remote, the fans inside are still on in order to dissipate the heat given out by the lamp. as a result some of the lens inside the engine may have burns-in caused by excess of heat.thus leading to shadows on the screen.

hope this helps

please rate me!

Shadows on screen


Try moving a medium powered magnet (not one for picking up heavy objects and not a refrigerator holding one) over the distorted area. If that doesn't work, try a more powerful one. This worked for my Toshiba LCD. Good luck!
