Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

Nothing happens.. Our projector just completely stopped working. We were in the middle of a movie and it just shut off. Will not come back on. What could the problem be, and how can we try to fix it ourselves?

Re: Nothing happens..

Once you open the unit, try pressing the little red button on the lamp casing (towards the front of the unit). That's what fixed my problem (with identical symptoms).

Re: Nothing happens..

I had the same problem and I just fixed it. Here is what you need to do.

Unscrew all of the bottom screws (you will need a long screwdriver)

Unscrew all of the back screws near the inputs

Carefully but FIRMLY pry and remove the top of the case (it is hard but you will get it)

Remove all of the screws on the metal case and circut board. Unconnect all of the wires (mark them so you can plug them back in)

PULL THE CIRCUT BOARD OUT- this will also take pressure as it is connected to the lamp/lens.

Unscrew the metal plate/case. This is a pain as there is one screw that is on the side and IMPOSSIBLE to remove with a screwdriver. I used needlenose and twisted it out.

Once removed look towards the plug through the hole and you will see a standard fuse. I used the needle nose again to remove it.

Run down to Radio Shack and get a 6.3 AMP 250 W fuse

replace and put everthing back together.

DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE EXTRA CARE TO GET THE CIRCUT BOARD CONNECTED TO THE LAMP/LENS INPUT!!! It is on the bottom of the board and takes a little finesse.

Power on and you should be good to go.

I managed to fix mine for about $2.99 plus gas and about 2 hours of time. If I did it again it would take me 20 minutes...

Good Luck!

My Sharp XR-10X unit just suddenly stopped working in the middle of a presentation. No lights, no sound, nothing. Any ideas? I've tried to open up the cover, but with no luck. How can I open up the back...

Most likely cause of the problem is termo protection, it has to be reset. I would not recommend you to open the projector by yourself. You simply wouldn’t know what to do with it.

Shutting down in the middle of presentations

it's overheating from excessive dust or lack of air flow. blow the dust out of it with canned air and make sure all of the vents are free from obstructions.

Nothing comes on except the green standby light on PT-AE900E.

I have the same problem. It seems we have to reset the counter. This reset must be done via the beamer itself and not via remote control, since lamp is not working...

No power

there are six screws in the base and two in the back of the unit. After taking off the top I saw a red button on the front that was a little pushed out - I pushed it in and I got the led lights back :)

HP vp6320 projector ten seconds it shuts off

I had the same problem, the first couple of replacement bulbs i ordered worked fine but the last 3 i got, 2 of them have been faulty, i just sent them back and they replaced them. If its too late to send the bulb back you can go to the settings on projector, select lampsaver setting, its probably set at off, turn it on. Your bulb will be a little dimmer in this setting but shoud let the projector run ok.

VPL-HS20 shuts down in the middle of a movie

There is a heat sensor cutting down the power. The sensor is located on the upper side between lamp and fan and is monitoring the air temperatur. I don't know what is causing the sensor to switch - excessive heat or simply age or ... . Anyway un screwed this sensor and my problem disappeared.
Possibly a stronger fan would solve the problem too.
