    Hi there, I have changed the lamp, but did not reset the timer when I did it, The old lamp had exploded, so cleaned out the case and installed new lamp. projector worked for a bit and now has shut itself down and even when I try the lamp timer reset procedure the projector does not fire up? 

    is there a full reset procedure I can carry out to get the projector running again?

    regards Rufus

The problem lies with your color wheel. DLP projectors use color wheels to produce the colours...... The little red glass pieces are from the color wheel.... product code. CFILWA081WJ03. Massive backorders in the US from Sharp. Last ETA I heard was Oct 5, 2009

While this may not be the solution that people want to hear. After replacing the lamp...if you plug the projector back in and the Power and Lamp light stay constant red and the projector will not turn on, it is possible that the projector has gone into protection mode (if the lamp timer gets to a "critical" point where there could be catastophic failure) This requires a service reset by a factory authorized service center. Costs will vary by service center.

Hi Guys, I have had an issue with mine. I started it up, it played fine, then a loud pop! It carried on playing the image turned blue. The fan then kicked in louder than ive ever heard it.

i removed the lamp cover, removed the lamp. To my horror i noticed a few bits of broken red glass from inside (RGB filters)

Can i get a replacement part in the uk or is the unit Dead?

PLeae get back to me, i dont read this forum so could you email me at

Thanks J

I have found an answer. Read the manual. If the temperature inside the projector increases, due to blockage of the air vents, or the setting location,
“ ” will illuminate in the lower left corner of the picture. If the temperature keeps on rising, the lamp will
turn off and the temperature warning indicator will blink, the cooling fan will run for a further 90 seconds, and
then the projector will enter the standby mode. After “ ” appears, ensure to perform the measures
described on page 55.

eg. you vacuum each side of the vents and unplug the unit from the power wait 5 minutes plug it back in and everything rests to normal. Failing this you have a possible issue with the cooling fans and you will then need to send off to the service centre.

If the fans do not work after turning the unit back on then this may be your issue.

here is the URL the the service manual if you have lost yours.

Check the air filters. Sometimes if they are dirty, they will stop the airflow to the projector and it will not turn on because it keeps overheating.

I am replacing the bulb on my sharp xv-z2000 projector. i replaced it fine but the power light and the bulb light both stay red and i cant even turn the projector on. how do you reset the projector?

Two red lights indicate a problem with the lamp circuitry, i.e. the ballast. This requires a service center to change out a circuit board. Given the cost, it might be time to look for a new projector.

How do I reset...followed instructions but still will not turn on

Do any lights come on when you plug in the power cord? If the power and lamp lights both glow red, the problem may be in the "ballast" circuit. The projector will have to go to a service center.

I need a parts breakdown for a sharp xv-z2000 projector. I think I have a broken internal mirror, but I'd like to know the correct disassembly procedure.

It's been a while, but in case you or someone else needs this information: The only quick source I could find for a service manual on this unit was the web site nodevice dot com. They charge something like $8 for 24 hours of download access, so work up a list of all the service manuals you might need and get them all while you're at it.

Just changed the lamp in our Sharp DLP Projector, lamp indicator

You don't mention whether the power light is on as well. IF you are seeing red lights for both power and lamp, there is a problem with the circuitry, beyond just the lamp. unfortunately this is very common. The unit will likely need a new ballast circuit.

Blue instead of red colour afer replacing lamp in sharp xv-z2000

You didn't put your 3-D glasses on backwards, did you? :)

Seriously, if you are using the component inputs, be sure the three cables didn't get mixed up when you put the projector back. Otherwise, you might have an issue with the color wheel inside the projector, but I doubt it.
