Question about Sharp Notevision PG-C30XU Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Unit turns on briefly and projects the startup screen, but then turns off.

This unit is 3-4 years old and has always worked perfectly. Now it turns on long enough for the blue notevision screen to show and then powers off automatically. I replaced the bulb with a new one and that did not make a difference. Any help would be appreciated! Dave

I my projector is new one used for 4 hrs, when i try to turn it on it just has a blinking green light. Please help Solve It! .

The blinking green light means the unit is either Powering On (Warming Up) or Powering Off (Cooling Down).

Powering On the Projector
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Securely connect the power cord and signal cable. When connected, the ON/STANDBY LED will turn Amber.
3. Turn on the lamp by pressing " " button either on the top of the projector or on the remote. The ON/STANDBY LED will now turn Green. The startup screen will display in approximately 10 seconds. The first time you use the projector, you can select your preferred language from quick menu after the startup screen displays.
4. Turn on and connect the source that you want to display on the screen (computer, notebook, video player, etc). The projector will detect the source automatically. If not, push menu button and go to "SETUP". Make sure that the "Source Lock" has been set to "Off". If you connect multiple sources at the same time, press the "SOURCE" button on the control panel or direct source keys on the remote control to switch between inputs.

If you are still unable to get the unit to turn on, try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. If it still ceases to work, contact Optoma here:
Their Technical Support line is 1-888-887-5001

My projector has started projecting with a very dim image - very difficult to see even with room lights dimmed. It has been working weel with a great image until now - approx 1.5 years old used an average...

I've got the same problem. Just replaced the bulb but the image is no brighter. Our unit is two years old and operates about 6 hours a day. It is dimmer and more out of focus when run from a Windows computer.

I would like to connect my Sanyo PLV-Z2 project to a DVD player with HDMI output in order to higer quality. I used a HDMI->DVI cable and connected DVI to Z2. I set the input 2 as RGB-HDCP. However it does...

I have the same unit (2 of them actually.) I have spent a lot of time on this very issue. The problem is that although the unit is "supposed" to be HDCP (digital copy protection) compatible, it is not fully. I've found that with some DVD players it will work for a minute or two and then go black, and with others, it will flash on and off, and with some it will never do anything but black. I have only found 2 ways around this. 1 is to use a computer (which does not use the HDCP) windows Vista/windows7 might have the same problems, but XP/2000/Linux work perfectly. The other solution that worked was to use a Playstation3 which seems to work perfectly with it playing DVDs and BlueRays.

Benq MP610 does not project any picture

OK , then this is positively a Mainboard problem.

Check if this unit is still under warranty as the BenQ MP Series came out with a standard 3 year warranty and in which case will cover the replacement of this part.

Check the manual if you have it or on line. The symptom you are describing may be a built in warning that your bulb has reache 2700 hours. I think there is a reset process and then at 3000 it goes out. Spent today reading the manual because I have one and the red lamp light is blinking. I called Panasonic and found out the only place that services these units is in Leawood Kansas USA> The place is called Heartland Services.
