    Yes another 4805 thread. I am close to 1500 hours and I am getting a very distracting color wheel whine. [​IMG] Is this something WD-40 will handle or is there a better fix?

    While inside I may also switch out the fan for a quiet Papst or Panaflow. Anyone know what size the stock one is?

    Scott, is it still under warranty? If so, send it in.

    I'd be interested in hearing more about how your fan replacement goes.

    I would strongly recommend taking advantage of the warranty before tearing into it too much. Any internal tampering will void the warranty, and there are things more serious than fan noise that are covered by the warranty.

    If the warranty is expired, go for it. Only if you post pics [​IMG]

    Defintely send it in if its still under warranty. Infocus is a great company to work with and if you have a problem they will fix it without blinking an eye about it.

    Bah! I was looking for an excuse to open it but voiding the warranty scares me. Thanks for the advice guys. I'll call Projector Center and see what they have to say.

    hey thanks! Ok I definitely wouldn't know what to do about the color wheel looking at those pics, and I still can't tell if it's an 80mm or 60mm fan.
