Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Sharp XR-10X Bulb works once then nothing

I just purchased a used XR-10X and tested it when I received it; the unit powered up and showed the four segment set up screen. I turned the unit off and it went through it's cooling cycle, no problem. The next day we hooked up our laptop and turned it on and the lamp exploded. I bought a new lamp, tried it, and as before got the set up screen. Turned it on a second time and got the blinking red light that goes to solid red indicating that a new lamp is required. No explosion this time, but no picture either. The fan works, and the lamp appears to be properly installed. I've cleaned everything I can see, any ideas? Thanks!

This is something which sharp didnt foresee!!!!!!!!!!
sharp has two identical models
sharp xr10x & the newer model xr10xl.both the lamps look alike , however both have a different rating & reverse connector!!
i.e both cannot be interchanged!however if u have the old xr10x & if u try to fit the new bulb which is lower in wattage, it will explode in 20 mins
if you have bought a used projector , then u wont know if someone has interchanged the ballast!!
as this model was discontinued 2 years back!!!!
so confirm the model , it is mentioned under sharp name or at the bottom
good luck

New bulb in now wont work - no power - wont turn on to reset lamp


first, make sure you have the correct lamp. the lamp for the xr-10x-l looks like the xr-10x, but the plugs are different (common mistake). make sure you have the AN-XR10L2/1, not the AN-XR10LP/1. to reset the lamp timer (with the projector plugged in but off), hold down the enter, down arrow, and menu buttons and press the power.

After 20 minutes of use picture shuts down. (Sharp XR-10X)


use canned air and blow every bit of dust out of every vent and hole. if you want to, you can remove the top (6 screws on the bottom, and the 2 top screws on the back) and blow dust out that way. i could also be a power supply problem. from excessive heat, the capacitors on the ps dry up and don't work as they should, causing shutdown.

Sharp XR-10X projector, but missing the projector bulb.


if you plug it in and turn it on, you should at least hear fans running, then it'll shut down because there is no lamp. that's about it.

Cannot remove lamp assembly from Sharp XR-10X projector


flathead screwdriver under the lamp handle from the front and a sharp push down on the screwdriver handle (but don't break it) will dislodge it. it wedges in there pretty good.

Sharp XR 10X lamp replacement issues


I sent mine in. They changed the bulb and cleaned the unit. The one thing they did suggest that seemed helpful was to upgrade the firmware. They did this as part of the service. That may be your problem, but I don't know that the firmware is upgradable. Yes indeed, they do charge an outrageous price!! I went through Sharp because they would guarantee the work, and I didn't want to buy two bulbs.

Flasing red light


The flashing red indicates that either the fileter cover or the lamp cover is not installed correctly. If both are installed properly and secured, the unit will require service.
