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

    The fans do run. Not sure about a resettable fuse?

    Called Tech Support and they want me to send it in...

    That's just it, with the correct knowledge I can repair this myself.

    Any ex-techs out there want to give me any advice? I already have the thing in 20 pieces looking for an issue. The only thing I have found so far is a chipped fan blade and that looks pretty minor. I want to test all the fans to make sure they are all running. Anyone know the locations of any other common failure points?

    Internal power supply.

    Thanks for the links!

  • David Haskell Jul 11, 2007

    I did try that and it didn't do anything for me. I wasn't sure where the timer was since the unit wouldn't stay on long enough to tell me. I swapped the bulbs and reset the timer just in case.

    I think the solution here will be to buy a new projector, this one is fairly old and the cost of repair is pretty high relative to a new unit.

    Thanks for all the time and effort spent helping!

Do you have fans running ? Would you consider an overheat situation or a resettable fuselink blowing-cooling resetting etc. Sharp Tech Support would know all about this,

    Well I guess that is what you will have to do
    My biggest fear is by the time you have paid to ship it and seen the repair quote- you may well be into buying the next one.
    Thats the way of things these days.
    US/UK repair hour rates make it cheaper to junk and replace- what a waste

    The fas running no issue with one aspect of the power supply.
    How does this one get its power?
    Is the power supply builtin or is it a separate unit that plugs to the wall socket?
    Power us split to various levels - for example

    12 V for lamp 5v for electronics Fans can be either.
    Now a Google/Yahoo may reveal a source for thing like this- I am not aware of a site myself -but for example[again] printer problems are catered for by
    There is also a comprehensive site-for all thing computery
    Take a search -keep in touch

    See page 50 regarding resetting lamp timer

Depending on the type of unit, you do not state any model. It may require 6-8 hours of being plugged in and turned off before the battery has enough charge that the ups will turn on.

I have an epson s3 power lite projector. Why would blue spots show on the screen at all times?

Dust has settled on the prism. It is an extremely delicate mechanism and should be cleaned professionally to avoid damage.

I have an emachine that is 5 years old. Always

YOUR PSU (POWER SUPPLY UNIT) MAYBE THE CULPRIT. If the power to your cable which fits the computer is ok, then the supply unit is usually at fault. You can buy these pretty cheaply on ebay and they are very easy to fit, or if you are not into that find a mate who can! beleive me... its pretty easy.

It sound like either a power or power connectivity issue. I recommend that you first complete a hard reset on the tv (unplug all power to the unit and accessories for at least two hours, sometimes more. Then plug the unit and accessories back in. If that does not work then I recommend using one of our premium services or searching for a local repair service search button located on this page. Just type in your zip code.
