Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

4 Answers

No power to unit.

When I plug it in, the standby/on led no longer comes on. Unit is not getting power. Followed previous post's instructions, opened unit and replaced fuse but no luck. Fuse was not blown anyway. Can anyone suggest other components that might be bad?

    Fixed it! Turns out power supply was fine. There's a little red button on the lamp molding (once you open up the unit). Apparently that's some kind of circuit breaker. Probably trips when unit gets too hot. Pushed it in and, voila, it worked!

Earth5worker was on point. If there seems like there is absolutely no power going into your projector, take off the six screws (will need a very thin long screw driver), and pull off the silver cover (use a flat screw driver to pry open the side that has the clip which is holding the cover together. Press in a small red button in which is located by the lens. Put the cover back in, six screws, plug power and catch the Wildcard football games baby!! Wow I feel so good right now. Thanks for passing this info guys. P.S. Do not remove or unscrew the lamp compartment as I did, just a waste of time.

Earthworkers solution fixes another one. Taking off the top cover and pushing the red button near the lense worked for me as well.

I had mine completely torn apart before I found this forum and found there is also a fuse deep inside the power supply. So if the first solution does not work all hope is not lost, yet. To get to the fuse I suggest you first remove the lamp and then take off the outer cover just as you would to get to the red button. Next carefully unplug the connectors for the fans, speaker, remote sensor, and largest connector on the board, between the fan and speaker connectors. Then remove the control board / lense / lamp housing assembly. All three of these components will come out as one piece. To get this assembly out remove screws as needed but not every one you see, only until you work the assembly free. If there are any remaining cables still connected, obviously remove them, such as the 2 wire power connector feeding the lamp housing. Once that sub assembly is completly free you will see the power supply assembly enclosed in a silver box. Remove the screws holding the top on and CAREFULLY remove the lid. Use caution not to touch anything in the power supply because there is a large capacitor, looks like a short D cell battery, that could deliver a very serious shock even after the unit has been unplugged. By this time you shold see the small fuse next to the power cord connector. You can test this fuse in place with a ohm or multi meter and it should read zero ohms or the same as touching the leads of the meter together. If you don't have a meter simply remove the fuse with a fuse puller or a pair of insulated plyers and replace.

If you have made it this far, good luck on reassembly and I hope this solves you problem.

Can't get my Kenwood VR715 receiver to go into the Select a speaker system to see if speakers are turned on. Followed manual instructions and can't get in. Any Suggestions.

Try resetting the unit by unplugging the unit from the wall, then plugging it in again WHILST holding the power on/standby button in. This should reset the system. If not:
ELECTREPAIRUSA@ELECTREPAIRUSA or you can contact us at that address as we repair/renovate all items electronic and electrical old and new.

I have a Hisense led tv model F39V77C.

Yeah, replace the set since it appears to be trashed. But if you have a few bucks lying around you might want to try replacing the unit's power supply to see if that resolves the many issues you have.

Unit works fine. However when it is switched to standby for a few minutes or longer then powered up. Nothing happens. Cannot hear the click of something, i assume a relay inside the unit. If the unit is...

I got same issue. Solution is to buy a efergy standby eliminator plug so it can respond to the On/Off signal by cutting off and restoring mains power

Lamp replaced, sequence from Manual (p.49) for 2010+ hrs fails

Apparently, the above posted steps do work, but they are finicky. The manual suggests that you do the aforementioned steps with the remote - I had tried with the remote and when that did not work I tried directly on the controls on the unit itself. Neither had worked - after multiple attempts, hence the posting above. The solution was that the various steps need to be done speedily - when I previously did it I apparently did not press the sequence rapidly enough. Nothing in the manual suggests that this is the case (and in fact I thought I had previously followed the steps in rapid succession on at least one of the many times I had tried, but apparently not quickly enough). I never could get this rapid succession of steps to work with the remote (as the manual said I needed to), but I did ultimately get the rapid succession of steps to work when done directly to the unit itself. The first three steps need to be completed within approximately 1-1.5 seconds, the final push of the volume+ button did require 2 or more seconds before the process was recognized (and complete). Never did have a single FixYa party try to address my issue - perhaps you only really get responses from them when you pay for their monthly service.

Accordianman--Dual deck VCR not responding...

No. Sound like the Switch mode power supply is or has failed, to repair this would involve replacing capacitor and or some componets, Many repair shops these days have discontinude repairing VCR's becuse most of the time you can replace the entire unit for the cost of repairing it
