first, reset the settings to factory default. if you are using it with a computer, make sure it matches resolution. native for the projector is 1024x768, but maxes at 1600x1200. and the input is analog, not digital. if you are doing video, make sure you are on the correct video input. it does do hdtv, but not 480p or 480i. if none of this helps and the focus does not work, check case for signs of damage. maybe the previous owner dropped it and damaged something internal. last possibility: clean it out using compressed air. take the top off if necessary. since it is an lcd projector, dust and dirt build up on lenses and light filters causing them to burn. remove the lamp and look at the fly-eye lens inside the lamp housing. if you can see the one behind it, check for burn marks. there may be parts that need replacing.

You need to look for your thermal fuse and replace it, it is old and is failing after being heated for a while The glass exploding.. well that's a worry, however bad, or low quality or counterfeit units can do this.. Either that or the power supply is sensing some fault and is shutting down,you will have to troubleshoot, in that case using the manual. -

I have purchased 3 new lamps. one lasted 900 hrs.

Your lamp is rated for 3000 hours. Is the fan working to cool the lamp? When you turn off the projector do you allow the fan to continue to run? If not the lamp is not cooling evenly and the lamp will fail. Th filters should be cleaned regularly and the vents be unobstructed.

Showing to of the same thing and colors

ghosting or convergance issue is what u have. if the image is in diff colors then deff a convergence issue. however, if the image isthe same color or shaded from the original then this is ghosting. this may be corrected through the menu settings(sinc settings).

Lamp time


You will have to reset the lamp timer as follows :

Hold down the up arrow key on your projector for a couple of seconds - projector must be switched on.
You'll see a on screen message appear in one of the top corners on the image....then just follow the two basic steps as requested on screen.....your lamp timer will now be reset.

Then shut down the projector and restart for changes to take effect.

XL-2100U lamp cycles on and off


I recently had a similar problem after replacing my lamp the set would work for 22 mins then go into standby for 30 sec then come back on, then repeats, I decided to experiment with the lamp housing, I removed the new lamp, unscrewed the top of the lamp that holds the actual bulb then switched out the main housing (bottom part) with the original housing, that seemingly has corrected my problem, you may want to try if the replacement lamp did not come from Sony...good luck
