Have reset the lamp hours after installing the new lamp? If, not the projector has treated the new lamp as old lamp & refusing to light further. So, reset the lamp hours to zero. To reset the lamp timer do as follows. Plug the power cord into the AC socket of the projector. Switch ON the power of the socket. (not projector) While pressing simultaneously INPUT, ENTER & UNDO on the projector, press ON on the projector. "LAMP 100%" is displayed, indicating that the lamp timer is reset. If this does not correct your problem then the problem lies in other area. Let me know so that further I can provide you solution. Above things are preliminary.
Sharp makes light and compact projectors with low fan noise. Set the projector up in areas subject to minimal humidity and dust to avoid having to clean the lens too often. Remember that colors will get washed out if the screen is in direct sunlight. Learn a few troubleshooting techniques to get the most out of this work horse projector.
No Pictures, Sound or the Projector Fails to Start
If you have no pictures, sound or the projector fails to start, check that the power cord is plugged into the wall and that all the cables are connected to the rear panel. Make sure the remote control batteries are fresh. If you are using a notebook computer, make sure the screen output is correct. Check the Input Mode on the projector. Check the projector physically--is the lamp and cover in place? Check the key lock.
I've searched all over...heh, I've got TONS of Sharp service manuals but *not* yours...I did find, however, the xg-e650 manuals on manualsparadise.com. Sharp units, a lot of times, are very similar in architecture, functions, parts, etc. For example, practically any Sharp remote will work on your projector...BTW, the lamp you need is a BQC-XGE850U/1 and sells for $292-389 dollars.http://reviews.cnet.com/peripheral-accessories/sharp-projector-lamp/4505-8309_7-31382143.html?tag=mncol;lst
blown fuse - take the lid off (six screws in the bottom and two in the back). look for a small red button by the lamp (front of the projector) and push it, it doesn't move much but it should work.
If that doesn't work call up 888-go-sharp their repair service.
NOTE - make sure you are NOT blocking the fan of the projector this causes it to overheat and shut down or worse... Make sure to tell your girlfriend the same thing so when you have the argument why she put the pillow on the projector you can at least say you told her not to block the fan.
This would seem to be heat-related as these lamps get hot rather quickly. The first quick and dirty solution - try cleaning the filter which is under a panel on the bottom of the projector. Another fix - be sure the projector is plugged into an image source; i.e. computer or DVD player. Sometimes these units will go into standby mode without a signal. More difficult fix - be sure the fan is runningn. When it shuts down, the fan should keep running until the lamp cools, then it will shut down. If the fan isn't working the temperature build-up with shut the projector off. Replacing the fan may be a job for a tech.
