Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Dropped PROJECTOR and now it won't turn on.

Somehow my original post got piggybacked on to someone else's and then I put computer in the subject line instead of projector. Not my day. Here's my original post -
My brother in law bumped our ceiling mounted Sharp XR-10X Multimedia projector and it fell. He caught it on his back, and it kind of rolled down his side slowly with him grabbing at it, then landed on the floor. (from about his knee) We plugged it back in and it comes on and the light goes to green. Notevision comes on the screen and then it shuts off and the light goes to flashing red. After reading some posts, I took it back down and cleaned the filters out, they were dust-filled. But it still does exactly the same thing. Can anyone help?

Re: Dropped PROJECTOR and now it won't turn on.

I think this projector uses a color wheel. It's literally a wheel a transparent wheel divided into different pie shaped colored sections.

I am not an expert (or even close) on these proejctors, but I would guess that a fall like this would cause a mechanical problem and the wheel is a mechanical part. If it's not allowed to rotate properly it could be the problem.

If you're in a brave mood you might open it up and see if the wheel is able to spin freely.

Good luck.

The "lamp" light keeps blinking red. Does this

The lamp life becomes 0%, when used
for approximately 4,000 hours with "Eco
Mode" or when used for approximately
2,000 hours with "Standard Mode" (see
page 43).
When the remaining lamp life becomes
5% or less, " " (yellow) will be displayed
on the screen. When the percentage becomes
0%, " " will change to " " (red),
the lamp will automatically turn off and
then the projector will automatically enter
the standby mode. At this time, the
lamp indicator will illuminate in red.
If you try to turn on the projector a fourth
time without replacing the lamp, the projector
will not turn on.

I just bought a used NEC Multisync MT 840 projector with just over 600 hours on the lamp counter. I live in Japan. After about 4 or five minutes of working, the projector turns itself off and won't...

Possible problem is the faulty lamp cooling fan. Check the lamp cooling fan of your projector. if the RPM of fan is low then the lamp can get over heated. May be its has some problem.Do one thing, Remove the fan from the projector. In the fan there will be a specification sticker. Remove the sicker. now u can see a hole in the center. its the bearing part of the fan. put one drop of oil in it. u can use any type of lubricating oil. rotate the fan leafs with finger for some time. after that re-stick the spec sticker. insert the fan in the projector.

i have added a video how to oil the fan for make it easy for you.

Lp600 won't strike

If you replace the lamp but do not reset the lamp hours then the projector will not ignite the lamp to stop it blowing up the lamp and causing further problems. You can reset the hours without the image, on the x2 version you turned on for 1 minute then held down the volume up and down buttons for 10 seconds but all versions vary. The infocus website can usually tell you how though you may have to look for it a bit. Failing that try a firmware update available from the infocus website that should erase its brain so you can start again, hopefully you have kept the original leads it was shipped with to do this otherwise it will cost you another £20

Won´t work when upside down..

Not sure if it is related by my MT200 would not power up at all eventually. Check the lamp cover micro switch is being depressed. I posted the comment below somewhere else. I hope this might help.

"I had exactly the same problem with the same projector. I took the whole thing apart last night, including all PCB boards the lot. After a lot of searching I found nothing untoward. Finally after figuring out how to put the thing back togther again, ready to accept defeat I noticed the micro-switch on the lamp replacement cover.
It turns out that the little plastic striker moulded to the lamp replacement cover was deformed/warped (possibly by heat?) and eventually it must have got to the point of not switching the micro-switch into the closed safe position. (I assume it there so that you can not power up the unit whilst the lamp cover is off, which would make sense) With the power effectively on and being very careful, I manually depressed the micro switch (with something plastic) the projector jumped into life! Of course I can not recommend anyone does this as it is probably not safe , but neither is having to pay a shed load for a service just for a **** plastic cover replacement. Long story short it fixed the issue. Hope this helps someone and saves them tearing their unit apart."

Epson projector from computer & powerpoint

You need a wireless presentation remote that has a transmitter that plugs in to the back of the computer. This can be used to advance the slides. Make sure you get one that states the distance you need.

Let me know if that helps.

Follow up on the Optima 719 with vertical white line

Hi Abouttime

Tapping can fix most electrical things for a very short while - unexplainable !

But I have been working as a authorised service provider on mos brands of Projectors for over three years now and in all of the times the white line was a faulty Mainboard.

This is just my opinion and I only answer and provide a free service to those who are in need.

Wheter you take my advice or not is entirely up to you.

Kind Regards

Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping


Some generic solutions for WiFi dropping out may include:
1. Use of static IP addresses for the clients (in your case the 2 Sony VPL-CX86s) rather than auto obtain;
2. Disable the WEP/WPA security;
3. Set MAC filter in your router and include MAC addresses of the 2 projectors;
4. Try raising the height/position of the router; and/or
5. use an aftermarket high gain antenna for the router.

As a reminder, WiFi works by line of sight (LOS), anything in between will reduce signal strength/coverage and that include people around/near the projector unknowingly blocking the router.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
