Sharp projector XV Z90U

When the new replacement lamp and cage assembly (BQC-XVZ90+++1) are installed the lamp timer will not return to zero and the lamp replacement  monitor appears on the screen instead of lamp 000H being displayed. screen bulb use menu still shows 2400 hrs - the point when we bought the new replacement bulb. we have followed the installation and resetting the lamp timer instructions carefully. can you suggest something. the projector worked perfectly otherwise.

Re: sharp projector XV Z90U

I also had this issue - followed the On, Input, Undo, Left, Enter, Right, On button sequence several times. Then I decided to push them in that sequence very quickly and it worked. The lamp LED on the front changed to green and the projector started up. So the button sequence they provide in the manual works, you just have to push them in rapid succession. Hope that helps.

Can you help me to download driver for sharp XV-C10A projector. i lost the old one

There shouldn't be a driver for that device. It should just be plug and play. Try plugging it in to the computer and see if it works, if not I'd recommend bringing it for repair.

First check your bulb properly matched with your projector. After changing the lamp reset the lamp hour (counting from 0hrs). Adjust the osd transparency.

If u set the lamp properly then It may cause the lamp circuit need repair.

Have you got yellow lamp indication before change the lamp? If occur then you have been late to change it. If you used it up to 2500hrs. then this problem may arise. Check those first if everything ok then may be the circuit have some problem, go to the nearest sharp authorize service center or visit website.

There is no problem here, the sharp projectors just do this until you enter the reset procedure. It comes on a sheet with your lamp. they differ from projector to projector. often involves hold down power and some arrows while plugging in the projector - that will reset the lamp timer and you will be away!

New projector lamp time! you may have found that a symbol of a lamp comes on in the bottom corner of the picture after you turn it on for a short time. perhaps the lamp light has been flashing too. But yourself a lamp and be sure to follow the instructions that come with the lamp on resetting the timer- you must do this in order to get it to fire up again. Tip for the Sharps- Must replace it with the AC cord disconnected. (reconnecting the AC cord is part of the reset procedure)
Happy lamp shopping!
