Question about Sharp XR-1S Multimedia Projector
There seems to be a problem with my Sharp XR-1S projector. when i plug it in and turn it on the standby/on button goes from red to green and there's a brief beep from the machine. then the lamp and fan turns on while the projector looks for an input source and after about 5 seconds the lamp and fan turn off. the standby button turns red and the machine won't turn on again unless i unplug it and start over. this happens whether there's a source plugged in or not.
OK - I've fixed mine (so it looks) - loads of dust inside unit seemed to caused the problem - vacuuming vents (as the manual prescribes) just shifts all the dust inside around and obviously causes some disruption.. solution - remove 4 screws underneath and lift off top (carefully) remove side panel screws (where Av inputs are) again carefully. Now go around each vent at the front, side and underneath and give areal good blow in each a few times. Plumes of dust and rubbish fly out - keep going until it's all clear. Reassemble and fingers crossed. Mine then started up and didn't turn off - there's a horrible burning smell (dust settling near lamp I presume) which is now fading. Been working 30 mins now with no trouble!
Hope it works for you - will post another update if I have any further problems - no news is good news!
