Question about Sharp Notevision XG-C50X Multimedia Projector
I have a Sharp XG-C50X, about a week ago it dropped to being about half as bright as it used to be. I checked the lamp life which is now about 50%, I cleaned the air filter, I cleaned the lens, I checked the bulb and menu settings, and could get no brightness back. This projector is now about 5 yrs old, and the bulb is almost one year old. I am wondering what might be wrong? Is it worth fixing?
I've searched all over...heh, I've got TONS of Sharp service manuals but *not* yours...I did find, however, the xg-e650 manuals on manualsparadise.com. Sharp units, a lot of times, are very similar in architecture, functions, parts, etc. For example, practically any Sharp remote will work on your projector...BTW, the lamp you need is a BQC-XGE850U/1 and sells for $292-389 dollars.http://reviews.cnet.com/peripheral-accessories/sharp-projector-lamp/4505-8309_7-31382143.html?tag=mncol;lst

This would seem to be heat-related as these lamps get hot rather quickly. The first quick and dirty solution - try cleaning the filter which is under a panel on the bottom of the projector. Another fix - be sure the projector is plugged into an image source; i.e. computer or DVD player. Sometimes these units will go into standby mode without a signal. More difficult fix - be sure the fan is runningn. When it shuts down, the fan should keep running until the lamp cools, then it will shut down. If the fan isn't working the temperature build-up with shut the projector off. Replacing the fan may be a job for a tech.

Sharp makes light and compact projectors with low fan noise. Set the projector up in areas subject to minimal humidity and dust to avoid having to clean the lens too often. Remember that colors will get washed out if the screen is in direct sunlight. Learn a few troubleshooting techniques to get the most out of this work horse projector.
