HI

I have had an infocus sp4805 for over a year now and I have already had to fix the light tunnel once with glue. Ofcourse it worked for a while now the dark is starting to creep from the right side of the screen again. If you have access to a new light tunnel for the 4805 I will definatly buy one. My email is hoover_bages@hotmail.com

Thanks

Hi Sheridan,

I got the same trouble with my LP70+ projector.
One mirror of the light tunnel went across the path, blocking the light which also produced overheating in that area + minor scratches on two other mirrors + broken corner!..
On an engineering point of view this is really a poor design (cost saving again and again!)

The tunnel is in 4 pieces and I'm designing a special fixture in order to maintain them in the right position for applying the glue..
I still have to make a choise for the glue?
I mean I will succeed but I'm not confident over a long time.

Question: can you get the replacement part for my LP70+ ?
dimensions are:
length : 23 mm
inner dim. : 4.85 x 6.90 mm about!
outer dim. : 6.95 x 8.50 mm (should no exceed 7.5 x 9)

please email me at b.p_i_err_at@lap#oste.net (remove 3 underlines and the # !!)

The disassembly procedure is really horrible and I will post it later; that could help someone since I spent 3 hours to understand how to proceed without hammer!

Thanks and merry Christmas.

Bernard

For anybody trying to repair a light tunnel (tube).

There is such a thing as hi-temp superglue: "Permabond 820". It is rated to +200 C, others rated in the 80's C. Make sure you give full cure time...24 hrs. It's not cheap. Bought some from adhesivewarehouse.com.

Repair of the light tunnel is extremely tricky, trying to hold everything in place percisely and not using excess superglue. I have a long tale of woe and one broken mirror. But, based on my experience: Use plummer's clay to hold the pieces in place vertically, apply very little of the glue using a toothpick. let cure, then carefully clean & reinstall.

I remain anxious to replace the light tunnel for a proper repair on my pj..So, am hoping the part is available soon.
Good luck to you and Merry xmas.

I got the X1 Color Wheels in. They are the real deal. I am surprised, after several years of being not available, now they are. And the projector has been discontinued for some time.

Anyway, I have two in my hands. And I am told I can get more.

They are $148.72 each plus shipping. Are you still interested?

I am also interested in this...my color wheel just shattered last night after several months of the "Buzz" it projects in black and white now
