Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector
No Power "Whatsoever"
I Followed all the instructions in aarrowgant post
when I got to the fuse I removed it and checked it with
my ohm meter, and guess what it was not blown!!!
I used a can of gas duster to blow out unit.
I reassembled the projector except for the top of case and
plunged it in "No Power" I disconnected The power
There is however a small thermal switch I Noticed mounted
on the front of the lamp housing only accessible with the case
top off, It has a small red plastic reset button on it. I dusted
this off and pushed it. pluged it back in and the power light came on followed by the projector powering up. I reinstalled the top and mounted projector back on ceiling. Working fine now 48 hrs.
This entire proceeure took me 2 1/2 hours and cost me nothing.

I tried the thermal reset and changing the fuse (even though it was fine) but nothing happened... the first time I tried it the red led indicating on/power started blinking for a while, after like 10 minutes I tried powering it up but nothing happened. I pushed the reset button again but nothing seems to happen now.
The button might be jammed or something because I don't feel any motion when I press the button. Is that normal?

Cyberphx, trinity hall. Thanks so much guys !! I had the exact same problem "(No Power )and I was like shoot.. I gotta just forget about the projector now.
Luckily enough. When I reset the thermal switch, the projector worked like a charm. Anyone knows what could cause that? I am guessing that by mistake I had placed a file folder vertically very near the intake mesh. That could have caused it to suffocate and get all heated up. BUT.. I had that folder lying there for some 5-6 days and the day I had this problem.. I had switched the projector on only for like 30 minutes. Could the room temp cause this to happen..
Thanks Anyway. It was a great help !!!

I had the no power problem on this projector as well. It went out after playing xbox on it for about 3-4 straight hours. But didn't know what happened. Thanks for the help. My actual problem was the thermal switch that Cyberphx talked about. But I had read what aarrowgant wrote in order to figure out how to get the top off. That's all that you need to get off in order to press the "thermal reset" button.

You'll also want to clean out the power supply(and anything else that looks dirty) when you reset it(push the red button)

I went straight to the resetting the Thermal Switch, and reset took 5 minutes, back in full action! Remove screws from base, use a screwdriver to open case seams at front of projector you'll find the reset switch to the left of the lens!

I replace the fuse like aarrowgant said and now I get the power light blinking red. I think it is the projectors lamp cover. In the process of checking the lamp and so on I probably did not put it away and now I have lost it! Does any one know where I can buy one? And thank you for the help Aarrowgant..

I had the same problem with my xr-10 projector. I opened the top case as suggested and pressed the thermal (red) reset button on the side, re-assembled the unit, plugged in and it powered up! Great advice!!! Thanks for posting, I was about to pack it up and send out for repair. I had just purchased a new bulb for the unit and did'nt want to shop for a new projector

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...
