Just noticed that the center beam on my x2000 has a dark area i assume the led is on its way out. tailcap reading was 1.4 a on high. any thoughts.

My guess is the same as yours - looks like the phosphor is burning. 1.4A on high is pushing things for an XR-E, especially with the less than stellar heatsinking of the X2000.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
