My projector overheats quickly

Two possibilities:

1) Air filter is clogged and preventing proper air flow

2) Lamp is getting old and is less efficient, creating excess heat.

For option 1, check the air filter located on the bottom of the projector. Page 81 of the manual details this process:

Once you have removed filter,either replace or clean out with vacuum or simply blowing out the dust

Option 2: if you have used the projector for over 1500 hours, there is a good chance the lamp is close to the end of its life cycle. Check to see if the lamp replacement light is on; it is just below the power button on the unit.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can take out the lamp by following the instructions on page 86 of the manual:

Once removed from the unit, see if the lamp has any bubbles or crystallization. The crystallization makes the mirror in the lamp look muddled, rather than crisply reflecting light.

Hope this helps.

Bulb won't work

If you are sure that you installed the new bulb correctly , then I recommend that you reset your projector . Some projectors don't realize that you changed the bulb physically until you reset them .

could be getting too hot (fan malfunction or dirty), lamp (also hot from dust), or a power problem. so, clean it out and listen for odd noises. if it still does that, you might need to replace the lamp ballast.

Sharp XR 10X lamp replacement issues

I sent mine in. They changed the bulb and cleaned the unit. The one thing they did suggest that seemed helpful was to upgrade the firmware. They did this as part of the service. That may be your problem, but I don't know that the firmware is upgradable. Yes indeed, they do charge an outrageous price!! I went through Sharp because they would guarantee the work, and I didn't want to buy two bulbs.

250V T6.3AH Slow Blo Fuse

Depending upon the way in which the lamp finally smoked, it is not unusual for the feeder fuse to blow. Replace the fuse and try the projector. As long as you haev a new lamp, it should work OK.

Its not the lc-sb20 but the lc-nb3e

Hi there

This sounds like a common Ballast ( lamp's power supply ) problem.

Only way to rectify this is by replacing the faulty Ballast.
