Hello. I have a business and have been using Infocus X2 & X3's for 7 years. I have 18 running at one time at about 17ft away and projecting on a 100" diagonal. These are hooked up to OLD computers and I’m converting from VGA to DVI into the projector (this is how it was originally set up). I have them running in ECON mode, so they are at 1100 lumens. I use these 12-16 hrs a day, everyday. It’s getting hard to find these, and the bulbs. They are also falling apart (mirror tube, color wheel, etc.) What would be a good alternative to these? I have so many and tend to eat through them, so initial cost and replacement bulbs are obviously a large part. I’ve been just buying them up for “cheap” and replacing when needed, but would like to look into something that will last longer, but can take the abuse. Thank for any help!

I had a couple topics before and saw you could possibly order Light Tunnels for an Infocus X3. I am in need of at least 13, but would like to buy 18 if you can get them.
do you still need light tunnel for InFocus X3?

I am not aware of any videos on this. Others have posted their own play by play on opening the projector and getting to the part. Do a search for light tunnel repair.
I would be very careful in there. You have to remove the color wheel to get to the light tunnel. The color wheel is very fragile and EASILY broken and at $170 for a replacement part, you don't want to go there.
Now, I'm not sure what to recommend to glue it back together, I've always replaced them but you do want a heat resistant epoxy and there are two very important points.
One, at no time do you want the epoxy to increase the profile of the tunnel (looking at it from the end) as that will change how it sits in the cradle and cause shadowing.
Two, and this is critical, the sides are NOT flush. They stick out half the thickness of the piece. I have attached an image of what it should look like.
As I said, I would have strongly recommended replacement in the past, but my supplier no longer lists replacement light tunnels for the X series.
By any chance do you know where I could buy a light tunnel for my X3?

I am looking to glue the mirrors on the light tunnel on the x 3. My first question is how to access the light tunnel and second is what glue is recomended for this application because of the heat factor any help would be much appreciated. I'm kind of afraid to go in there and start unscrewing all kinds of screws without knowing a direction. Anyone know of a youtube video that might show this thanks Rich

I have an InFocus X3 that the fan will not shut off. When it goes through its powerdown/cooling cycle you can hear the fans running fast for a minute or so. Then it shuts down and you can hear the fans quiet down, but not completely shut off. Its like the fan is moving very slowly. No flashing lights or anything else that would indicate a problem. Any tips out there?
