Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Bulb screen Hi folks: I'd like to know if there's a way to set up some sort of a filter system for the XR-10X? I'm replacing the bulb with 80 % life left and found the small inlet screen on the bulb unit 75 percent blocked. The projector is installed in a ceiling environment in a small room, exposed to mild dust. I'm assuming that's what made the bulb fail early. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ron in New Jersey

Re: bulb screen

Make and enclosure to surround the projector everywhere except the lense, put a fan (muffin fans are nice) in the side with a nice big filter on its inlet side blowing into your box and wire it so its on when the projector is. A source of cool air would be nice instead of that hot stuff up by the ceiling. Yes, heat is way bad for projectors.

How do i reset my xr-10x lamp life on the projector

Hold down the MENU/HELP, ENTER and down arrow buttons and press the standby/on button. Keep holding down the 3 above butons until the LAMP 0000H appears on the screen. That will indicate that the timer has been reset. Please note that all 3 buttons MUST be held down when the ON button is pressed. I can tell you that it may take a few tries to get it correct. Holding down the 3 buttons at the same time is tricky.

New bulb in now wont work - no power - wont turn on to reset lamp

first, make sure you have the correct lamp. the lamp for the xr-10x-l looks like the xr-10x, but the plugs are different (common mistake). make sure you have the AN-XR10L2/1, not the AN-XR10LP/1. to reset the lamp timer (with the projector plugged in but off), hold down the enter, down arrow, and menu buttons and press the power.

After 20 minutes of use picture shuts down. (Sharp XR-10X)

use canned air and blow every bit of dust out of every vent and hole. if you want to, you can remove the top (6 screws on the bottom, and the 2 top screws on the back) and blow dust out that way. i could also be a power supply problem. from excessive heat, the capacitors on the ps dry up and don't work as they should, causing shutdown.

Sharp XR-10X Bulb works once then nothing

this is something which sharp didnt foresee!!!!!!!!!!
sharp has two identical models
sharp xr10x & the newer model xr10xl.both the lamps look alike , however both have a different rating & reverse connector!!
i.e both cannot be interchanged!however if u have the old xr10x & if u try to fit the new bulb which is lower in wattage, it will explode in 20 mins
if you have bought a used projector , then u wont know if someone has interchanged the ballast!!
as this model was discontinued 2 years back!!!!
so confirm the model , it is mentioned under sharp name or at the bottom
good luck

Sharp XR 10X lamp replacement issues

I sent mine in. They changed the bulb and cleaned the unit. The one thing they did suggest that seemed helpful was to upgrade the firmware. They did this as part of the service. That may be your problem, but I don't know that the firmware is upgradable. Yes indeed, they do charge an outrageous price!! I went through Sharp because they would guarantee the work, and I didn't want to buy two bulbs.

Lamps are easily replaced by the user. Get a new one and pull out your instruction book to replace. Make sure you clean your air filter regularly to give longer lamp life. There is no way for you to "fix" the lamp module without replacement.
