Yes the LAMP is very tight sometimes. What I do is use something to pry on one side, while pushing against it from the other. Just be careful. It does take a little work.

  • Secure the lamp cover and the air filter cover of the projector body if the projector does not power on. Ensure that the power cable is firmly connected to the projector and an active power plug. If the projector was turned off and then on quickly--let it sit for 90 seconds before trying to turn it on.

    Replace the projection lamp if the projector will not power on or if the lamp indicator is flashing. Turn off the projector and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Locate the lamp cover and remove or loosen the lamp cover with a screwdriver. Carefully remove the projection lamp from the projector housing using the handle, if available.

    Place the new projection lamp into the projector housing and secure it to the projector. Replace the lamp cover and reset the lamp timer. Power on the projector to ensure the new lamp is working correctly.

    Remove the projector from the enclosed area to allow air circulation if it constantly overheats. Place the projector into an open area and make sure there is no blockage for the ventilation holes. Unplug the projector for at least 45 minutes to allow it to soft reset.

    Clean the air filter to allow the projector better air circulation. Turn off the projector and unplug it from the outlet. Remove the air filter cover and use a vacuum to remove dust from the area. If the filter is unable to be cleaned correctly or is damaged, then replace it. Pull the air filter from the projector and place the new one in the now empty slot. Close and secure the air filter cover.

I have changed the lamp in a Sony VPL EX-1. I have fitted a YODN (LMP - C150) I cannot get the flashing light to go out which indicates `lamp,cover` and I cannot do anything with the projector.

When you open the lamp cover for replacement of lamp there is a switch in the projector is OFF
If lamp cover not fix proper after replacement of lamp the lamp/cover indicator flashing
SOLUTION: Open the lamp cover and fix proper and tight the screw

Hi, I just opened my Sharp xr-10x DLP projector today, which had no power, no lights, no functions. A previous post worked for me...Remove the 6 screws on the bottom of the unit (you'll need a longer phillips) and the two screws on the back, toward the top of the unit. Obviously, be sure to keep these handy for reassembly (I have two curious dogs and a 4 year old to contend with). Then, to remove the housing...use a std screwdriver and slightly pry the cover off from the rear of the unit. This should losen allowing you to pivot the cover forward and then off from the projector lens. If you need to reset your unit, the reset button is near the lamp, not the lens (to the side of the lens). It is a small red button--depress this. Next, you can connect the ac cord and try powering up the unit. For me, I got a blinking red light but could not power up the unit. I then opened up the lamp compartment on the bottom of the unit (2 srcews) and remove the lamp. Next reconnect the lamp...when doing so, make sure the two prongs fit the lamp--this is the power supply. Then replace the lamp cover and retest the unit. At this point, my projector powered up as it used to. Finally replace the projector cover...from the lens then backward. Tighten all screws and you, hopefully will be ready to use the projector again.

Keep in mind, your problem may be the need for a replacement fuse or lamp. The fuse should be available at an electric supply shop or a Radio Shack store. I have seen replacement lamps for $190-$275 available online.

Good Luck...Hope this helps you out. As I said, I just completed this process myself today and am happy to have avoided the shipping costs and $65 diagnostic fee + labor and parts to have Sharp repair this. We are looking forward to 'movie night' on the 8' screen tonight! Hopefully, you'll be enjoying your projector soon!

Cannot remove lamp assembly from Sharp XR-10X projector

flathead screwdriver under the lamp handle from the front and a sharp push down on the screwdriver handle (but don't break it) will dislodge it. it wedges in there pretty good.

Lamps are easily replaced by the user. Get a new one and pull out your instruction book to replace. Make sure you clean your air filter regularly to give longer lamp life. There is no way for you to "fix" the lamp module without replacement.
