Not sure how many hours I could check but I think 4-5k, Im on my second lamp. I dont think its under warrantee it's a couple years old.
I doubt that you're still under warranty. (At 4-5k hours I can almost guarantee it -
but you might have an extension, many of us do; it was free a couple of years ago. But it doesn't cover labor.)
It probably is the colorwheel. Other threads have talked about it. I have noticed it a couple of times (our X1 is @ just over 2k) but it has always gone away.
It may not be important but have you cleaned your filters? And if you do find any dust don't use spray in the X1 as it can spread dust onto the DMD chip. You wouldn't like that. (do a search on "dust blobs.)
Good luck - you could contact Infocus tech help. They might have a solution if it doesn't go away.
EDIT: Edward below is right. If the colorwheel is permanently bad it's time to upgrade. You might even get something for the X1 "as-is" (for parts) on eBay. Be sure and state what you think is wrong with it though.
