Sharp PG - AX10 Projector - Fault Lights

I am currently having an issue with said projector, it turns on fine but when you go to turn it off for a break and then go to turn it back on again both the power and lamp light, light up in red and it switches its power off! Why is this? How can I solve the problem? I have cleaned the filter, and I don't think the lamp is about to die as the instuction manual informs me that it will tell me on the screen weather or not the lamp is about to fail. Regards confused David

SOURCE: my projector says all keys are locked.

Just hold the "ON" key for 3 seconds until it frees up the keyboard. Then hit the "standby" button twice to shutdown.

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...

I am having the same problem. Mine stays on for a while, never the same, then kicks off and back on again without me touching it. I replaced the lamp with a brand new one and still same issues. I checked the fan out and cleaned it, but still same issues. Is there a heat sensor on these that can go bad? Or get out of alignment?

I have a sharp notevision DLP xr10x projector. Two red lights, one is the lamp, the other standby/power. I changed the lamp but nothing changed. I can't even turn the thing on. Any ideas?

Hi Stephen,

Do you hear any fans starting when you turn on the projector? Try unplugging and then plugging in the projector. Make sure that the lamp door is secured as the projector will not start if it is loose. You should also reset the timer for your projector. The manual can be found on the site of

Powers off automatically

Please check the filter to the lamp, clean and reset. A poor cooling of the lamp can cause this issue . Secondly a failing lamp also is a reason. If there is no result then you must check with the service center for a consensus .

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.

Sharp pgm20x switches off immeately after switching on

It turns out that i fixed this issue, I opened up my projector and took a look at the board to make sure that there is nothing wrong. It turns out that the projector needed a good cleaning. Just use caned air to clean out the projector make sure that all the vents are clear and not blocked. (note: do not spray the caned air while the bulb is hot, if you do this the bulb can cause the pressurized air to temporary flame up, Please make sure the projector has had at least 30 minutes to cool off) While the board is off press the power button and the projector should power up. Replace the covering, and this projector will work.

Sharp PG-M10X projector

Tel 703 377 7121 Hi Allan
It might be a digital or optical problem. This symptom was often part of the CRT type projector setup but i have not seen in the digital single lens type.
Is the lamp sitting 100% proper. Have you displayed the content machine and source on another display device? Was the machine dropped or knocked? It is an unusual symptom to have just be replacing the something else has occurred.
If a digital problem in could either be a circuit malfunction or software (IC rom issue)
Re your Sharp PG-M10X We are able to supply replacement lamp delivered next time you need one, as we ship internationally and also the same with our revolutionary ICE Digital Daytime projection screens. Regards Kevin Andreassend ICE AV Technology Ltd +64-9-414 2348
