Question about Sharp DT-100 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

DT-100 stopped working all the sudden

Last week while watching a Christmas movie our Sharp DT-100 shut down without warning right during projection. Now when the projector is powered on the lamp attempts to light, which it doesn't, so the lamp LED blinks (green) while it tries to warm up. The LED goes solid for a second and then starts blinking green again. This happens about twice before the unit shuts down, illuminating both the lamp and power LEDs (red). I tried resetting the bi-metallic fuse (breaker), but it wasn't tripped. This is when I realized we had a problem. We have around 800 hrs on our lamp(not even close to 1/3 the spec life of the lamp). Any help would be appreciated. I don't really want to drop over $300 for a new lamp only to find out that doesn't fix it.

Thanks so much.

    Same Thing again, this our second bulb that blew up with no warning in less than a year with the dt-100. I like the unit but I'm not spending more $$$ if its going to happen again.

SOURCE: 1-Projector is in standby, so I hit the power

I think it's capacitor issue on the power supply board. open it, look for power supply board and fine bloated capacitor and replace it.

SOURCE: Hi Guys,

look at your lamp carefully to see if you see bubbles in the mirror or anything like that. if so then your power supply/ballast is bad.

Charging indicator starts blinking when i watch movie for more than one hour on battery


A laptop won't last long without being charge, a fully charge battery should last about 1hr 30mins so charge the battery while your watching a movie next time.

My Dell, recently got into a problem like it shuts down itself, only when i watch online movies. I started watching online movies eight months back but did'nt have this problem till last week. Its a Dell...


Without knowing anymore specifics, I'd guess to say that's its a heat related issue. Especially since it's summertime now and you're on a laptop. Note that when viewing online movies, especially if you choose hi-def over std-def, your laptop will use much more horsepower and thus create more heat than if you were just cruising the internet or working on an Office application. And when viewing a movie, you're doing this consistently for an extended amount of time. Eventually, your computer reaches a temp(usually specified in your computer's Bios) where it will either shutdown or restart in order to cool-off.

To verify and understand this, please perform the following steps:
1) Close any open programs, especially any internet browsers, and make sure your antivirus isn't performing a full scan.
2) Right-click on the taskbar (or hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete) and select 'Task Manager'
3) Now click on the 'Performance' tab.
4) Take note of how much 'CPU Usage' you're using. For example, I'm on a laptop, at idle, and it says 3% CPU Usage.
5) Now, open up your browser and go to where you watch online movies but don't start any videos yet.
6) Take note of the 'CPU Usage' now. Currently, I'm on Hulu and on average I'm at 8% CPU usage.
7) Now, start watching your online movie and take note of the 'CPU Usage'. For me, it jumps between 40-50% on std definition and 50-60% on hi-def.

So what's the solution if it's heat related, well for a laptop your best bet is to buy a laptop cooler (look for reviews online). I recommend any retail store or buying online from NewEgg, Amazon, or Buy.com. Also make sure any vents from the laptop aren't obstructed.

Now to keep a better eye on your laptop's temperature, I recommend the following 100% free, no spyware, no viruses, no adware programs:
(Note: after you install one of these, you may want to repeat the steps above and take note of the temps during each step)

Good luck!

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...


Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.

My projector suddenly stopped working


The instruction manual says that to reset the timer you have to hold down (simultaneously) the Menu button, then Enter button and the Down arrow...then press the Standby/On button on the projector. This worked the first time I replaced the bulb, but now that I've had to replace it again, its not working. Good Luck.

Sharp DT-100 projector bad picture quality


Hi There Not sure what you visually describe as "blurry" This could be two things - a typical white screen will waste all the definition and brighteness unless you sit in a dark room Our ICE Digital Daytime Screens will take any projector and make the image up to 2000% brighter with a resolution reseolving ability of 20 million pixels. So in this case the definition you are alluding to could be lack of contrast, image definition due to insufficient light from the projector relative to the lux level of the room. Alternatively the lamp could be getting old. The brightness of a lamp falls off rapidly so as you use it more and more the image will become duller and duller contributing to a "blurry" or image lacking in punch etc.
The technical lamp hour spec life is only a manufacturers "up to xxx hours" and not what you will achieve in actual life.
If you want we are able to supply lamps as we ship internationally and also the same with our ICE Digital Daytime projection screens. Sharp DT-100 Lamp cost is $US261 delivered.

SD-532HD5 TV shuts off when watching


Its is a cold solder joint on the board. The board is the one located at the bottom right of the tv when looking at the rear. Mine did the same thing. After refreshing mose of the large solder pints on the board, it stopped. Hope this helps!

Brief power on then shuts off


It could be a component short or crack on the power supply board. Open the back of the TV and look for signs of defect. The power supply board is the brown one on the right with huge capacitors.
