Question about Sharp Notevision PG-C45X Multimedia Projector
After a catastrophic bulb failure - it audible popped, and there were glass fragments inside the bulb housing, when I replaced the bulb, I have a yellow smudge on the projection surface.
I've removed the bulb, and examined the first prismatic lens (plastic) just past the bulb, and it appears ok - and have cleaned all the lenses I can reach - but the yellow smudge is still present.
My IT guy opened the case, and there is a second plastic prismatic lens, that appears to have a brownish goo seeping out from between the panels. Is this a replaceable part? Or is the projector trashed?

Reset The Lamp Timer.
While simultaneously holding down (+ . >) and AUTO SYNC on the projector, Press ( I ) ON and ( - . < ) on the projector.
"LAMP 0000H" is displayed, indicating that the lamp timer is reset.
NOTE..... Make sure only to reset the lamp timer only when replacing the lamp. If you reset the lamp timer and continue to use the same lamp, this may cause the lamp tp become damaged or explode...

go into the menu and reset to factory default settings. if that does not help, you have a bad polerizer (light color filter) on one of the lcd panels. sharp will sell the individual parts if you want to fix it yourself. if you want them to do it, they'll replace the entire optical engine and charge you a fortune.

This is one of two things. Most likely there is a piece of dust or other obstruction right on top of the blue panel. I'm guessing that your smudge is in the lower center of the screen - that is where these usually occur. The other possibility is that the blue LCD panel is starting to deteriorate and the components separating. This is extremely expensive to repair and Sharp will end up giving you an estimate that approaches the replacement cost for a comparable new projector.

I am not sure what the sequence is but sometimes you can hold a couple of buttons to reset this. The problem is that sharp does not like to say what the procedure is and that you will need to find a local dealer to help you with this. You may be able to do this over the phone or will need to drop it off.
