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?

Re: No power to unit.

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.

Re: No power to unit.

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.

No power indications


Fuse problem or power supply.
If it's the lamp, you'll still get a standby light.
Check also the ventilation, that might caused it to shutdown.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Optima ep716 power light flashes green but cannot turn on projector?

The green flashing light is jsut indicating it is in standby mode.

Just double check the connectors are in place and do not have any damaged pins. If the input is active from a laptop- make sure you have the external monitor enabled- some you have to manually enable, some you merely need to have the monitor plugged into it.

If all of that is okay and functioning, and it still will not get out of standby, open the unit and check the wiring to the DB15 connector for a broken wire, If those check out, visually inspect the power supply for any bulging electrolytic capacitors- if any are found, replace them with high ripple current types.

I my projector is new one used for 4 hrs, when i try to turn it on it just has a blinking green light. Please help Solve It! .

The blinking green light means the unit is either Powering On (Warming Up) or Powering Off (Cooling Down).

Powering On the Projector
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Securely connect the power cord and signal cable. When connected, the ON/STANDBY LED will turn Amber.
3. Turn on the lamp by pressing " " button either on the top of the projector or on the remote. The ON/STANDBY LED will now turn Green. The startup screen will display in approximately 10 seconds. The first time you use the projector, you can select your preferred language from quick menu after the startup screen displays.
4. Turn on and connect the source that you want to display on the screen (computer, notebook, video player, etc). The projector will detect the source automatically. If not, push menu button and go to "SETUP". Make sure that the "Source Lock" has been set to "Off". If you connect multiple sources at the same time, press the "SOURCE" button on the control panel or direct source keys on the remote control to switch between inputs.

If you are still unable to get the unit to turn on, try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. If it still ceases to work, contact Optoma here:

Projector is completely nonresponsive. Almost like it has no power. No lights on, etc. Yes, power cord is plugged in.

There is an internal fuse that may have blown. I urge caution however, as this fuse does not open without a reason. It is possible that a power supply problem is preventing the unit from starting up as well. Usually though, this would show at least a standby light. Unless you have previous experience with the repair of similar units, I would not suggest any attempts now. There are potentially dangerous voltages present inside these machines.

Please update this if there are any sympoms at all when you attempt to power up the unit.

If I turn on the main power switch to my projector, the led's on the power switch and the 4 way (left, right, menu exit) switch come on, however, the power indicator does not nor does the lamp. I just...

I had the exact same problem, I followed the advice of Victorbello on this site, and found a bulging capacitor where he suggested to look. Read where below.
I soldered in a new one from Radio Shack ($1.50) and the projector works again.
PB6200 symptoms: Back fans were not working Bulb won't light (but is in perfect condition) LEDs on control light, but not three status LEDs Internal fan will not turn off.
Solution: The mainboard had a bad capacitor The board is the one where all 3 fans are connected, and which is facing upside down on top of the powerboard.
The bad capacitor on my projector was a 25V 470uf 10mm diameter, 16mm high, 5mm lead spacing capacitor.
"I recommend you to open your projector, unplug all connections to the fan board, turn it upside, and inspect the capacitors and other components. Bad capacitors have a bulge and/or a black stain or fluid coming out on the top."

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.

Fan making noise

Hi, you probably have something rubbing against the fan or a faulty fan. To investigate, you'll have to open up your projector and look at the fan.

To start the process, you'll have to remove the cover of the unit. I just opened my Sharp xr-10x DLP projector today, which had no power, no lights, no functions. A previous post worked for me...Remove the 6 screws on the bottom of the unit (you'll need a longer phillips) and the two screws on the back, toward the top of the unit. Obviously, be sure to keep these handy for reassembly (I have two curious dogs and a 4 year old to contend with). Then, to remove the housing...use a std screwdriver and slightly pry the cover off from the rear of the unit. This should losen allowing you to pivot the cover forward and then off from the projector lens. Once removed, look toward to rear of the projector...the fan is located's a small unit that vents out the rear. Before removing this, check to see if there is any debris in the vent area that will be need to be removed. If you need to remove the fan, you can do so with the screws attached to the fan unit. Once this is done, you'll be able to plug the unit in and see where the noise is coming from. If it is from the fan unit itself, you'll have to order a replacement from Sharp. Just contact their service/warranty dept and tell them the make/model and they can obtain the part for you. At this point, reassemble the unit by reversing the above instructions. At least your projector should work while you await a replacement part to arrive.

Good Luck...Hope this helps you out.
