Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

Does not turn on

MY Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector was working fine. Now, it does not start up. The fan is not heard either. It has an indicator lit that always turned on when I turned on the device. Now, nothing appears. Dead. No sounds, no lights, nothing. Should I replace the lamp? I took it out and inspected it, shows no burnout signs. Thanks, J.POVEDA Eagle Mountain,UT

Check if the thermal fuse has triped you will have to open the covers.

If you dont want to open the machine then take it to the nearist agent to check.

Problem with Sharp XR-10X The power light blinks red

According to the manual, a red blinking light indicates that the lamp cover is open. Try reseating the lamp and making sure everything closes up right. If the light is still blinking, it is most likely a problem with the projector itself and you may need to find out about getting it serviced.

Sharp XR-10X projector. Makes a loud whirring noise when trying to turn on. Bulb starts to turn on then doesn't. It's not the fans because I opened up the projector, disconnected the fans and it still...

the colorwheel motor bearings are starting to go. you'll need to replace the colorwheel. you can get the part from a sharp service center and do it yourself or send it to one for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good.

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.

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.

Sharp XR-10X Bulb works once then nothing

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

Sharp xr 10x

You will need to open it up and flip this little breaker switch. It has gotten to hot and tripped itself. Dust it out while you are in there.
